  • Getting there and away

    Phnom Penh Transportation

    If you are travelling from Phnom Penh to Vietnam or vise versa then going by boat is a nice alternative to taking the bus which is what most people do. The boats travel from Phnom Penh to Chau Doc in Vietnam and it's a nice trip that takes four and a half hour including the time you will spend at the border for visa stamps and so on. The trip down...

  • Tuk tuk

    Phnom Penh Transportation

    -Everyone is like Piranha, just waiting for an opportunity to deceive you and grab your dollars. -Be very careful with "Tuk-Tuk" , after confirming the price, please prepare the exact amount, any extra chances for you to get back the balance is rare. -"Tuk-tuk" like Zombies scattered all around Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. It won't take long to...

  • Motorbike

    Phnom Penh Transportation

    Pay no more that USD 1 (foreigner price) per destination within the city. If someone is trying to ask for more than that, just walk off and take another one. I’ve tried to bargain for 3000 riel but didn’t manage to pull the trick off. Price of tuk-tuk is slightly more expensive. As always bargain before you get on the bike.

Sam worked full time for Australian friends of ours who lived in Phnom Penh for four years. He was employed as their driver and some of his duties were vehicle maintenance, airport transfers,...

  • Walking around

    Phnom Penh Transportation

    The cheapest way to get around Phnom Penh is of course to walk! If you’re staying along the riverfront it’s easy to walk to many bars, restaurants, art galleries and shops. The Royal Residence, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum are also close enough to reach on foot, as is Wat Phnom and Phsar Thmey (Central Market). Walking around the city is...

  • Rikshaw

    Phnom Penh Transportation

    It looks like a dying profession ... from many Asian cities trishaw or samlor have already vanished largely because they have been replaced by much faster motorbikes (and you won't even have to work that hard with your legs then). Now moped taxis and tuk tuks compete with samlor and they are winning - in places where this is allowed or...

  • Cyclo

    Phnom Penh Transportation

    A cheap and typical way to move around PP is by these bycicles. They cost slightly more than a moto ride, but are far more charming, as you go real slowly among the incredibly thick city traffic. As you go in front, you can feel a little "vertigo" when motos and cars cross in front of you, but don't worry, I didn't see any crash (that doesn't mean...

  • The Tuk Tuk

    Tuk Tuks and moto taxi are the best mode of transportation to get around town. No trip should be more than five USD and I had my tuk tuk and driver for a few hours for 10 usd. Went shopping and he waited for me, ate lunch and he waited, had a dental appointment and he waited. After a few hours to get back home for a nap at the Flamingo hotels, 10...

  • Take a ride with Tuktuk

    The best way to travel and go around in the country (short legs) are the TukTuks. In Cambodia they are scooters or small motorcycles with pulled wagon carrying about 4 people.Prices are for target or hour and the starting offer is 2-3 times higher than you should pay. Remember to bargain I got e.g. a tuktuk for 3$ per hour with unlimited mileage :)...

Of course it is important, the route can take 5-7 hours depending of road...

    There is a daily bus leaving at 7.30 each morning to Sihanoukville.

When the road was first constructed there were many deaths as the locals got there first...

Avoid the locals who will offer to help you and walk towards immigration, process your papers, then bargain with one of the motorcyclists to take you to Koh Kong. On the way you will pass over a bridge where you...

  • The old jungle road from Koh Kong

    The old road from Koh Kong towards Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh was the only way to travel before 2008. (Today a new road has been build by the Chinese). The old road is without asphalt paving and goes trough dense jungle, crossing three wide rivers with ferries. It took 7 hours to get from Koh Kong to Sihanoukville.

    Flying can save considerable time when traveling in Cambodia. If you want to only visit Phnom Penh and Siem Reap/Angkor Wat and then move on to another country, flying is a very easy and convenient way of doing so. It costs about 100$ for a flight around, and the planes are nice and comfortable. Consider it.
