We booked a vip mini bus for 15:45. Firstly the bus was 1,5 hours late. Then, it was a bus shared with many other locals which stopped basically every 45 minutes and took 6+ hours to get to sihanoukville. It also did not have wifi like it promised on the advertisement.

Comfortable bus drive, spacious seats, just the right amount of stops (2x short toilet break, 1x 30min lunch break), bus left on time and arrived earlier than expected in Sihanoukville, close to the pier.

The journey was ok, we left pretty much on time and arrived around expected time. The seats are not comfy, but I guess you get what you pay for. No complains.
