Organised, professional and helpful service. Glad I got the VIP experience as it made things easier going through the border with our guide guiding us through the correct process of crossing. I’m planning on going from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Min city in a few weeks so I’ll most likely book with Giant Ibis again. Thanks guys👍

The trip went well and the employees helped us whenever we needed. This being said, we paid the premium of $20 compared to other options based on the fact that the batch processing of the visa to cross the border allowed us to stay on board and that changing buses was not needed (as you have to do with all the other operators). It is so, that at the moment the (or any) bus is not allowed to cross the border, so we had to get off the bus and go through the border by foot and get on another bus. I don’t blame them for something beyond their control, but then they should have changed the description for this trip and adjusted the rates accordingly.

Bus was nice! the guide was super sweet! Because of covid we had to change from one bus to another bus. Therefore you had to carry your bag at the border. Normally that is not the case. There was food in the morning and at lunch time and also a bottle of water but always better to bring more water yourself. The guide was super sweet and cared for all the passengers. There was WiFi in the bus. Worked fine. At the border it took a long time. Because 30 people were checked. We left at 7:45 but arrived at 17:30/ 18:00 (not really sure anymore)

The bus was comfortable, safe and we got through the border easily. You can get the Cambodian e-visa before entering (takes about 3 business days) and this was slightly cheaper than getting the company to do it for you. The food and snacks provided were good. The bus from Bangkok to the border had to be replaced from the giant bus to a small minivan but then the bus from the border to Siem Reap was good. Annoyingly the USB charging points were not working so make sure you have your devices charged! The border took longer and so the overall time was about 2 hours more!

The airco broke down. That's why we had to wait at the border in a smelly location without getting information before heading out again.

It is best to reserve your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Check our list of bus companies available for online booking offering Bangkok to Siem Reap tickets.

Some premium buses have onboard toilets and the second driver. Nevertheless, usually they still make en route stops for a quick lunch or fuel refill.
