Bus from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon)

by chascolson

My wife and I need to get from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh in mid-April of 2009. I think that taking the express bus might be a lot more interesting than flying (yet again). However, I am concerned about the reliability of the bus trip, as we need to get to Saigon to catch our return international flight. Anyone have any experience with this?

there are more than one company offering PNH to HCMC. why not go the day before? and enjoy a little vietnamese food before you take off? six hours mas or menos by bus to HCMC. one half an hour by plane130 vs 15 usd.. all the best.. closer to your date check on the net for bus schedule..

We took the "Mekong Express Limousine Bus" from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh in March this year and were very satisfied with their service, which also included a "hostess" who pointed out places of interest along the way. They also handed out a small box with pastries and bottled water to each person.
This company also does the Phnom Penh to HCMC run, so it might be worth checking them out.

Hi, done the trip loads of time, much more interesting than flying and door to door not that much longer. There are two services i use, Sapaco or Mekong Express, both very reliable and there are loads of travel agents in pp where you can pick up tickets (US$12). Trip takes about 6 hours, tho getting faster as the road is improved. Reccomend getting an early morning so you avoid the 6pm rush hour at customs on the border

Travel Tips for Phnom Penh

Begging

by YM_84

Everywhere u go, there are people asking for tourist money... disabled, kids, mothers, airport, angkor wat (USD 20 a day)..

you will get to see people giving you flowers or joystick as you pass by a buddah statue, so that you could offer prayers infront of the Buddah. But there after, they would expect you to place some donations for them...

This is not the true teaching of buddism.. you could see such acts around Angkor temples, history museums, silver pagoda and even at the royal palace.. is the king even begging for money???

Cash Machines

by jmmorgan

There are no cash machines in Phnom Penh. Transactions are usually carried out in cash so make sure you have plenty available to you. Hotels will exchange travellers cheques but charge 6% commission for doing so.

Monks

by Hewer

I saw these monks travelling on the back of a truck. My guide told me that they were returning from a construction site. Some builders wish to have their labours blessed by higher powers and the monks oblige with meditation and prayer. It`s a nice tradition.

What to Pack!

by Cathy&Gary

If you travel economy class then your check in luggage weight limit is 20 kilograms per person.

So make sure you have lightweight suitcases, our cases are huge but they only weight just under 5 kilo's.

Don't bring home anything you can do without - throw or give away all your toiletries, shampoo, conditioner etc, all the little things that add up in weight.

Load up your hand luggage with any heavy items you have bought, its surprising how much shopping you can cram in a backpack. You are allowed 7 kilos in hand luggage.

Most airlines will let you be a few kilo's over, we went for years coming back home overweight, until last year when we were done by Malaysia Airlines for nearly $300 in excess fee's!

If you have filled your cases before you leave home, then unpack and start again - half the amount you had in there.

You do not need 10 changes of clothes, 5 pairs of shoes, 20 ton of toiletries.

Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore etc are hot, you only need lightweight clothing, the laundries are cheap there and if you run out - buy more there.

We go shopping when we arrive to buy our toiletries, extra tea/coffee, fly spray etc.

This is the adaptor we always use in Thailand, its the same adaptor used in Cambodia and Bali.

We also take a small Australian power board with us, then we can charge mobiles, camera's, and laptop at the same time if need be.

I hate using an umbrella but we do pack a couple of tiny fold up ones for our backpacks.

It's surprising the amount of times we have needed them, especially during those sudden tropical down pours.

Check out the Firing Range

by XKuger

The coolest ting to do off beat is to visit one of the Cambodian Military outpost and fire and array of automatic, semi-automatic weapons. They have AK46, M16, Machine guns, pistols etc. I got to fire a range of weapons for 80$. Just ask the Limo guy you hire(20$ a day) and he will take you to where you can check it out.
