Thailand Cambodia Vietnam bus service on the cards

The transport ministers of Thailand and Cambodia have proposed the inauguration of a bus route linking the two nations to Vietnam. If the plan comes to fruition, buses will ply a route linking Bangkok, Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City.

Cambodia transport-ministry spokesperson Va Simsorya said such a route would be a useful international connection for both tourists and citizens of the three nations. He confirmed that Sun Chanthol, the transport-minister, had given provisional approval but added the legal ramifications needed to be ironed out first.

The initial proposal is to use luxury coaches on the route. This will provide additional choices for travel between the three countries. Cambodia has individual agreements in place with Thailand and Vietnam for international bus services, but not for a through route.

At present, there are bus routes from Phnom Penh to Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City. 12GO ASIA sells tickets for both routes. Our preferred partner for Phnom Penh to Bangkok services is Thero Express while Giant Ibis is a top choice when travelling from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh.
