Battambang to Phnom Penh Destination Reviews

The vehicle was uncomfortable, seats too close to each other, the air conditionning was not working properly and I felt unsafe for almost all the trip. The driver used the horn continously during all the trip to over take any type of vehicle. Despite these problems, the bus arrived on time

The driver answered telephone cals several times while driving. He almost crashed another car while checking on his mobile.

We had a bus with a kind of beds. They were quite comfortable. We arrived in time. Everything was clean. If travelling alone book a place in the single row, not on the side with two seats/beds next to each other as there is not much space between the seats.

It arrives 90 minute before than it says, very inconvenient for the night trips
Bus Hotel Bus, Virak Buntham Express, Jul 15, 2023
bus was comfortable but you have to share a small compartment bed with someone which would not be good if you didn’t know them. It arrived late yet still arrived 3.5 hours before it was supposed to, this meant we arrived in phnom penh at 4am instead of 7:30, with no accomodation booked and no plan. This felt unsafe

All was reasonable except the loud music the driver played through the speaker system. People were trying sleep, I was trying to listen to a podcast. It was very annoying
Bus Coaster, Virak Buntham Express, Jan 24, 2023
Bed not very comfortable, driver thought he is a Vin Diesel from Fast & Furious, we arrived 2 hours earlier than we were supposed to. So in overall not really good experience.
Bus Hotel Bus, Virak Buntham Express, Jan 14, 2023
Lots of stops we didn’t know. NO room for legs
Bus VIP Minibus, Cambolink 21 Express, Oct 25, 2022
The mini “bus” is more of a mini van. My husband is a bigger guy and as we were about to board the employee claimed he was too big to fit. Not knowing he spoke Khmer, he told the staff that they had misrepresented the type of vehicle and it was not his fault that there was no room. Luckily one of the passengers switch seat and we were able to board. Although the driver got us to our destination very quickly there were several accidents that could’ve occurred due to driver speeding. It’s a cheap quick transfer that we took last minute to guarantee us to our destination. Could’ve been better if staff was able to communicate properly.
