    NOMO Bus going to Phnom Penh

    NOMO bus
    2 more images

    Because we were on a budget, we booked a bus going back to Phnom Penh through our guesthouse. We chose NOMO bus instead of Mekong since there’s a big price difference. Nomo Bus is only 8USD while Mekong is 15USD. Nomo Bus is also air conditioned. Bus tickets were given to us at that moment with the number seats on it. A staff picked up us in the guesthouse and did a few stop overs for the other customers along the way to the bus terminal.

    Just don’t expect something similar with the services offered by Mekong. Since Nomo bus is cheaper, the vehicle that fetched us in the guesthouse is a non-air conditioned van and looks like it’s ready to be in the garage at any moment.

    At the bus terminal, there are staffs seated infront of the bus and you have to show the
    bus tickets to get it stamped before getting inside. The bus also has bathroom.

    However, my friends and I, find it uncomfortable when we got inside.. people are shouting (most of them are locals). There’s no order and definitely a big difference to the services by Mekong. Oh well, it’s the choice we made… we just endured the travel. The only thing we enjoyed here is the movies played. Hollywood action movies like Unknown and The Transporter rocked the travelers. The usual videos played in Mekong are Cambodian music videos.

    Tuk-tuk can get you anywhere in town with a standard rate of 2USD for short distances only. We hired the tuk-tuk driver, Mr. Chun, a nephew of Mr. BunKao (owner of the guesthouse where we stayed). The day tour package includes the Angkor Wat and other temples costs 20USD. The next day, we hired Mr. Dee, a family friend of Mr. BunKao, for half day tour around the town costs 8USD. Both of the locals are very down to earth and helpful to give us additional details about the places we went to.

    Mekong Express Limousine Bus

    by theguardianangel Written Nov 8, 2012

    welcome to Mekong Express Station
    4 more images

    We took a bus of the Mekong Express to Siem Reap, Cambodia through our hostel in HCMC. The travel is an enduring 12 hours. There are 2 choices of time of departure from Saigon to Siem Reap- 730am and 9am. We chose the 730am so we can arrive in Siem Reap at an earlier time. Bus ticket costs 420, 000VND. The bus also travels to Phnom Penh with time departures at 730am, 9am and 130pm and costs 210, 000 VND. We were asked to prepare at 630am because someone from the agency will fetch us. This bus is what usually the tourists take going to Cambodia. I don’t blame them since I had a very good impression of it.

    The service is great! There’s an attendant who speaks a local language (I believe it’s the Cambodian local) and English. Once the bus started to move, the attendant gives an introduction and also updates the tourists to where the bus is heading. Snacks and bottled water are distributed and a little later, the attendant will ask you to hand him your passport.

    Upon the arrival in the border, the travelers will be asked to get out of the bus. The bus will be waiting outside the immigration. The immigration is like a very simple office. The only problem I see here is when more buses arrive and unload tourists; the long line of waiting seems forever. After the passports are stamped, each of the attendant’s bus helps out the immigration officer by calling out the name indicated in the passport. When all the peoe inside the bus, the attendant will call out again the name in the passport and that’s the only time it will be given back. The bus will be crossing the river by a big boat (that’s what I think of it) and that will indicate that you are already in Phnom Penh.

    We arrived in the Mekong Express Station in Phnom Penh around 1245pm. We were asked to wait for the bus that will take us to Siem Reap so while waiting we took our lunch in their small canteen. I enjoyed their iced Cappuccino which costs 1.90USD. The canteen serves snacks like noodles in cups, breads, cookies, iced coffees & ice cream. The bus going to Siem Reap arrived at 120pm. At around 430pm, we stopped over a canteen for 15mins then arrived in Siem Reap at 745pm.

    I was quite fascinated to see this type of tractor when I visited Danau Toba. Here, I see them again in Siem Reap at a Buddhist temple premise in Lolei. I'm not an engineer but I got the chance to see how this tractor works.

    Anyway, thats one of cheapest transportation in Siem Reap as I seen a lot of villagers travel in this type of tractor.

    We missed the chance to have the Balloon ride near Angkor Wat because the office closed for celebrating Khmer New Year.

    Anyway, you can take a ride a Balloon ride 200m straight up for an awesome views of Angkor Wat and other temples. The big yellow balloon is based about 1km east of Angkor Wat on the road from the airport.

    Elephant ride at Bakheng

    I always wish to ride on an elephant, now I regret for not having that ride when I at Phnom Bakheng :-((

    Anyway, you can find them waiting for customers near Bayon and at the South Gate of Angkor Thom and they offer elephant treks between the two sides. In the evening, the elephants will move and stationed at the base of Phnom Bakheng, to transport riders up the hill to see the sunset. Please take a ride if you have no energy to walk up to the hill.

    USD15 for a 25 minutes ride.

    Tuk-tuks, can be found everywhere in Siem Reap. A trip within Siem Reap will cost US$2 for 4 people or 6 people, if the driver in the good mood. Ensure both you and driver agree on the destination and total fare before departure.

    The hotel can arrange van for you for single or multiple days. They are charged more than Tuk-tuk per day, but of course, its much comfortable sitting in a van with air condition. :-))) Our driver can speak good english and is very friendly and helpful.

    TRAVEL TO POIPET

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now that the road is finally surfaced bus travel to Poipet is easy by bus, taking less than 3 hours. At Poipet you will probably have to take a smaller bus to the border then walk across. Then you can get a tuk-tuk to either the bus station or train station.

    BICYCLE RENTAL

    by ancient_traveler Written Mar 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bicycling is quickly becoming a popular way to visit the temples. The roads between the main temples are paved and the distances are about right for a bicycle touring. Bring sun screen, a good hat, water and a Cambodian scarf to keep the sun off your neck. Many of the guesthouses, hotels have bicycles for rent. $1.5-$4/day depending on the type and quality of the bike.

    MOTO-ROMAUKS (TUKTUKS)

    by ancient_traveler Written Mar 28, 2012

    Tuk-tuks are covered offering some protection from sun and rain. In Siem Reap most drivers speak some English.

    To the temples, transportation is usually rented by the day. Rates run about $10-$15/day for motorcycle trailers.

  • Tuk Tuk Service By Srapon Is The Best

    by rbcyes Written Feb 1, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We pre-arranged our 3 full days travel around Siem Reap with Srapon.
    His website is http://mytuktuk.com.
    During our entire visit, he was always early to pick us up and very courteous and spoke English well.
    We had arrived with some preconceived notion of what we wanted to see first and he guided us to the right places at the right times to avoid the onslaught of tour groups.
    Additionally, he gave us a never-ending supple of cold bottled water throughout every moment of every day.
    He is clearly very experienced and has very good people skills.
    His price was more than fair and he gave us the best service we could have hoped for.
    If you plan to use a tuk-tuk in and around Siem Reap, you must use this man's service.
