How to get to Siem Reap from Bangkok

What about

The inspiring Angkor complex is undoubtedly the main draw of Cambodia and Siem Reap is a gateway to all the architectural wonders of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and all other temples of the Khmer Empire. You can easily spend days exploring the outlying temples of Angkor, visiting a floating village on the Tonle Sap Lake, savouring flavoursome and rather mild – compared to the Thai ones! – Khmer dishes, watching apsara dancing or relaxing in street massage shops offering great Khmer massage. Even if Siem Reap has been for a long time overtaken by foreign tourists, it remains a great place with its own atmosphere, a busy and ever-friendly vibe, homely guesthouses and colourful Old Market. All in all, it is a great mistake to think that there is nothing else to see and to do in Siem Reap apart from admiring the great Khmer structures of Angkor. You will find plenty of activities and meet plenty of great people, both travellers and locals. And you are sure to enjoy the experience.

Getting to Siem Reap

Gone are the times when getting to Siem Reap from Bangkok was akin a complicated quest which involved bus, tuk-tuk and taxi rides with inevitable visa and guesthouses scams. The journey normally stole you off the whole day and was quite tiring and full of minor annoyances. In 2009 a paved road linked the border with Siem Reap, decreasing the travel time on the Cambodian side from five to a mere couple of hours. With a direct Thai-Cambodian International bus between Bangkok and Siem Reap which has been in operation since February, 2013, the journey from the Thai capital to the base for exploring the mystical Angkor complex has become much easier and more straightforward.

From Bangkok to Siem Reap by bus

Bangkok-Siem Reap route is served by a government-operated Transport Co International. They provide VIP buses which are generally in good condition, but note that there is not too much leg space for a Western traveller. Otherwise buses are quite comfortable, there is a toilet on board and two meals – a small breakfast and lunch – are served during the trip. Do not expect too much from your meals, though – breakfast is a muffin with orange juice or milk, and the lunchbox contains rice with some sort of a curry.

Currently there are two morning buses (8am and 9am) daily during peak periods and only the 9am one left during the low season. Tickets cost THB850. The main advantage of the international bus is that you do not need to change it at the border which is the case if you book two separate trips – from Bangkok to Aranyaprathet and from Poipet to Siem Reap.

The bus ride from Bangkok to Siem Reap itself takes about six hours (four hours to get from Bangkok to the Thai border and two hours from the Cambodian border to Siem Reap), but be ready to spend not less than an hour (more likely – two hours) at the border, as the Aranyaprathet-Poipet border crossing between Thailand and Cambodia is always busy and sometimes extremely busy. Most probably you will be robbed off one more hour prior to reaching the Thai border at a ‘travel agency’ – see our Visa Scam Alert below. That means that the whole journey from Bangkok to Siem Reap will take you about 9 hours.

In Siem Reap buses arrive to Nattakan Cambodia Co., Ltd. (22 Sivatha Road) which is the Cambodian company operating the international bus. It is located some 500m from Pub Street where there is plenty of dining, drinking and entertaining options. There is a travel agency sharing the same office with the bus company and its staff normally tries to persuade arriving passengers to stay in the guesthouses which share their revenues with the travel agency. These guesthouses are not necessarily too much overpriced or bad, so sometimes it may even prove a good idea to have at least a quick look at what they are offering.

Visa Scam Alert

Even if it is a government-operated company, you still may face a usual visa scam when you are brought to a ‘visa agency’ and are forced to obtain your visa to Cambodia there – obviously at a higher rate. The official visa fee for a tourist visa is USD30 – that is the amount which you pay while obtaining your visa on arrival at the border (though at land borders you will be inevitably asked to pay some THB100-200 extra for ‘speeding the process up’ – it is not actually necessary to do so). Have one passport-sized photo to attach to your application.
If you want to avoid these annoying situation at the travel agency or at the border, apply for your Cambodian visa online through the official web-site of Ministry of Foreign Affaires and International Cooperation of Kingdom of Cambodia. The e-visa costs USD30 plus USD7 for processing your application. It is accepted at the major international borders of Cambodia, including Pnom Penh International Airport, Siem Reap International Airport, Poipet (Banteay Meanchey), Cham Yeam (Koh Kong) and Bavet (Svay Reing).
Most probably you will spend about an hour at the ‘tour agency’ as the majority of the passengers of the international bus usually seem unaware of this scam or just choose to pay more. It is absolutely useless to argue, so be patient.

Getting around

It is not a common practice to rent out motorcycles or scooters to foreigners in Siem Reap, alas! If you want to have your own transport, the only option is bicycles which are offered at around USD2 per day. Be realistic, though: it is about 7 km from Siem Reap to the ruins plus the same distance back and than add no less than 10 km if you wish to do the Small Circuit. And yes, it may become scorching hot in Angkor.

If you prefer motor transport, than opt for a motorbike taxi, a tuk-tuk or a normal taxi.

Motorbike taxis are the cheapest way to get around the city. Short hops around Siem Reap normally cost less than USD1. You can also hire a motorbike taxi for the whole day for exploring the temples of Angkor (daily rates start from USD8). It is a convenient option if you travel solo and do not want to depend on other travellers which is the case with a shared taxi or tuk-tuk.
Tuk-tuks are ubiquitous and are a convenient – and very authentic – way for moving around the city. Hiring a tuk-tuk for a whole day for exploring the ruins is a quintessential Angkor experience. They seat two people comfortably enough; three or four will feel like herrings in a bowl though. Tuk-tuks charge USD15 per day.
Taxis or rather cars with drivers are air-conditioned – no heat, no red dust, no sweat, hurray. They are definitely more comfortable and for some it may compensate the lack of that feeling of ‘authenticity’ of the ride. Yet if you wish to visit some remote temples and have fellow-travellers to share the expenses, taxis are a great way to get there. Expect to pay from USD25 to USD30 for a whole day.

Where to stay

Accommodation in Siem Reap has improved tremendously during the recent years. Whether you are on a tight budget or want to splurge at its most, Siem Reap has something to your tasting. The French Quarter with its broad and leafy avenues hosts great mid-range and expensive hotels. This peaceful area lies within an easy reach of the centre of town, yet feels considerably more tranquil than the rest of Siem Reap. Wat Bo, Psar Chaa and Airport Road areas all offer plenty of budget digs with Wat Bo being the most convenient option as far as the location is concerned. In Airport Road you are quite far from everything, and near the Old Market (Psar Chaa) it may be too noisy, though some excellent and cheap guesthouses located there are perennial favourites among backpacking travellers. A few of the most top-end hotels in Siem Reap are scattered along the road to Angkor. As with Airport Road, you are far from everything there, though in many cases you will definitely not want to leave you luxury nest.

Activities

Exploring, visiting, checking out and admiring all those awe-inspiring temples of Angkor from dawn till dusk – that is what you are supposed to do while in Siem Reap. Nobody of those arriving to Siem Reap escapes Angkor – well, no wonder. But Siem Reap has even more activities on offer if you get tired of all those centuries-old carved stones. Enrol to ceramic classes and create your own pottery using the pottery wheel at The Angkor Pottery Centre or find out the variety of flavours of Khmer cuisine at cooking classes which include a visit to a local family with Beyond Unique Cooking Class. There are also opportunities for connoisseurs of alcoholic beverages with Georges Rum Free Tasting or Palm Wine tasting. In about 20 minutes drive from the centre there is The Angkor Silk Farm where the visitors are introduced to the whole process of silk-making. If you are still temple-hungry after visiting Angkor, there is a dozen of old and modern temples in the city, all of different architectural interest, including a 500-year-old Wat Preah Prom Rath, which shows the obvious Angkorian influence. Evenings glitter with traditional costumes of the dancers performing at numerous venues round Siem Reap. And then there are all those massage shops to relieve your aching muscles after a strenuous day at the ruins. The Khmers claim that the famous Thai massage has originated from the Khmer one. Whether it is true or not, it is worth comparing anyway.

Passenger reviews out of total 9,376 passengers traveled with us on this route

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★★ Dec 17, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The trip was very comfortable, bus was clean and spacious. The guide was very helpful in getting the visa and going through customs and immigration at the border. Safe and responsible travel company for sure.
★★★★★ Dec 16, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
It was awesome. The busses where better than in Europe. We did get breakfast and lunch. Such a nice staff. We really did love that trip. It was better than we thought it would be. I would recommend it to every girl traveling. Safe and awesome.

★★★★★ Dec 12, 2017 (bus Intercity, Travel Mart) :
Fantastic service start to finish. McDonalds was easy to find with them the address provided, large reclinable chairs for everyone, light blanket and water bottle provided, and WiFi available for the Cambodian part of the trip. Organized passport and visa details. I took the 1am bus, we parked at the border around 5:15, were among the first to cross when the border opened at 6, and made it to Siem Reap by 9am. Staff was friendly and spoke English. Bathroom on board as well!
★★★★★ Dec 11, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
I feel comfortable with all the service prepared by the giant ibis bas from bangkok to siem reap. It's really worth and I have a good and smooth journey to siem reap. Its recommended to all foreigners who want to explore cambodia by using bas.
★★★★☆ Dec 7, 2017 (bus VIP, Transport Co Intl) :
Bus could have been cleaner but crew was quite helpful. Trip went well.
★★★★☆ Dec 4, 2017 (bus Intercity, Travel Mart) :
I was super hesitant to book the bangkok to siem reap trip with Travel Mart due to the previous negative reviews I read, especially when people mentioned scamming, but we didn't have a problem at all. While they were late picking us up & the toilet in the bathroom stopped working with about 2 hours left of the trip, that was the worst! And that's not even bad. We didn't get scammed (but we also did e-visas and printed those prior so if you're worried about visa scams, do that for peace of mind), and we got there safely in one piece. We also did arrive about an hour and a half after the scheduled time of arrival, but that was expected, again from prior reviews I read. There's no real reason why you shouldn't go with Travel Mart! I'd do it again.
★★★★☆ Dec 3, 2017 (bus Intercity, Travel Mart) :
Service was good and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Their English was also excellent. Logistics of the meet up should be improved, however, since we had a hard time looking for the right meet up venue (the address did not match the photo of the actual location). The bus seats were comfortable for sleeping in during the long drive. Overall, their service is highly recommended. Definitely would ride with them again if ever I were to cross the Thailand-Cambodia border again.

Good service
★★★★★ Nov 29, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Travelled Bangkok to Siem Reap, the attendant Chenn was really helpful. Breakfast and Lunch were good too, Crossiant & Nescafé’s cold latte for breakfast and Egg fried rice for lunch. Seen all passengers from different nationalities eating and emptying their lunch boxes, that means all liked their Lunch. Paid $5 extra for the visa processing but trust me it is worth it. If you have to do it for yourself it will take time and the crossing is really chaotic so the help from the bus company is worth the extra money. For us it is equivalent to £3 or cost of a coffee so just go for it and save yourself the hassle. People are ready to pay about £25 for visa processing companies but not ready to pay $5 for this service. Can’t really understand. Buses are good quality too Hyundai with a/c , WiFi, usb charging etc., All in all would rate Giant Ibis 5 out of 5. Well done
★★★★☆ Nov 29, 2017 (bus Intercity, Travel Mart) :
Little cofusing with the pick up point and with the paszports and stuff around the boarder. Other than that supreme! Also with the tuk-tuk combination at the destination point.
★★★★★ Nov 27, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport)
★★★★☆ Nov 26, 2017 (bus VIP, Transport Co Intl) :
En el viaje nos dieron un desayuno y comida. Nos dieron todas las facilidades para pasar la frontera y hacer los visados en grupo. Te recogen al terminar los trabajos. Si no llevas el visado on líne (e-visa) te lo gestionan ellos pero en vez de 30€ recobran 40€ por el trámite. Depende de la elección de cada uno. En general, una manera barata y cómoda de ir a Siem Reap desde Bangkok. Recomendable.
★★☆☆☆ Nov 26, 2017 (bus VIP, Transport Co Intl) :
Bus arrived on time and there was one warm small meal during the trip. At the beginning we got snack and water. But the problem is that before crossing the border one of staff told everyone that we have to give him passports now and 1400 bht for visa. We asked again do we have to do it and he said yes. When I asked why he just left and started gathering money and passports from other people. It turned out to be a scam cause every one of us had to leave a bus and go through immigration and pay there. And after they gathered money and passports we were waiting for more or less 30 minutes for them to go back. Watch out!!
★★★★★ Nov 23, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Helpfull staf, very comfortabel ride.
★★★★★ Nov 23, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
I did not go on this bus. Because of flooding in another area I missad the connection. However, the company, 12GoAsia, after I left a bad review, apologized. That is a Good company. Now I and My friend only need to spend one night in Bangkok at our own expense, and the new tickets to Siem Reap are already paid for. Thanks.
★★☆☆☆ Nov 21, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
they run a Visa scam where they overcharge you for taking care of the visa, breakfast and lunch was a joke, only 2 chances for a toilet on a 7hr+ journey
★★★★☆ Nov 20, 2017 (bus VIP, Transport Co Intl) :
Very good trip from Bangkok to Siem Reap: we arrived on time in Siem Reap and had no issue during the trip or at the border. They offered water, juice and a meal and were not pushy to arrange the visas for us (we went on our own to the checkpoint). The bus was confortable enough with A/C. We booked everything online and it was safe! We recommend it!
★★★★☆ Nov 19, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport)
★★★★★ Nov 17, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Great trip over the border at Poi Pet. Giant Ibis organised a seamless journey and really made the border crossing easy. We had evisas for Cambodia which helped but they offered passengers a service in which they organised their visas for them in exchange for a small fee, which seemed like a great help as they were finished with the process as quickly as we were! On top of that they gave us a breakfast snack and a fried rice lunch with coffee can and water. Excellent service couldn't recommend enough!

01/11/17 - Made the trip from Bangkok to Siem Reap with Giant Ibis and absolutely delighted with the service. Both the driver and guide were fantastic, keeping us informed during the various legs of the journey so we were fully aware of the itinerary. Even though we weren’t very well prepared for the border crossing, he made our issues non-existent and ensured the crossing went as fast and smooth as possible. All while being attentive and considerate of all passengers on board, he is a credit to the service and we would be happy to use it again. Reasonably priced too, thank you for such a pleasant experience.
★★★★★ Nov 1, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Great journey and nice staff to help if there’s any problem. Would definitely recommend.

Very friendly staff, they made sure the entry into Cambodia went smooth....the poor guy ran up and down to check on all the passengers - and believe me it is a tricky road from Thailand border thru to the other side! Received a bottle of water and a good lunch - we enjoyed it! The bus stopped once to use the toilets....no paper, so make sure to take some with! Overall a very good experience and would use them again.

We travelled to Siem Reap from Bangkok with giant ibis on 14/10/17 Seats were very comfortable with plenty of legroom and the driver was excellent. The two star rating is due to some issues we encountered. 1. WiFi didn't work. 2. The ibis guide wanted $40 for VIP visa when they advertise it $35. 3. Lunch was not provided (maybe because we wouldn't pay $40 for a $30 visa) We will still continue to use ibis during our travels for comfort and safety reasons.
★★★★★ Oct 14, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Seamless process through the immigration office. Great service from the guide! Extra points for the snacks, drinks and lunch that came with the ticket. I highly recommend Giant Ibis!

Very easy journey. Free breakfast croissant, egg fried rice lunch and bottle of water. Border was easy - leave your big bags on the bus and you're walked through each stage of the crossing. You need a passport photo and 30 US$ or 1200 Thai baht for the Cambodia visa. You make several short stops en route, including place with ATM.

★★★★☆ Sep 7, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The bus was great! Comfy, great wifi, excellent crew. I opted to do my own visa and a guy from the crew helped me with the whole process! Some of this might have been because there were only 4 passengers on the entire bus. The only negative is that it is very expensive compared to others buses. 12go.asia was convenient but wayyyy overcharges.
★★★★★ Sep 6, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The bus was great, we actually didn't want to get off! It was so comfy and air conned. The help at the border was worth the money as we basically walked straight through and saw a lot of people looking very lost...
★★★★☆ Sep 6, 2017 (bus Intercity, Travel Mart) :
The guy came on the meeting point in Kao San Road on time, then we wait a bit to start the journey. Sits are quite confortable and they provide you a blanket. There are no stops but there is a toilet inside. We did the travel at the night. We left Bangkok at 1am and spent the night travelling, arriving at the border around 6am when the border opens. We had to pay 40$ for the visa even though the real cost is 30$, however it is quite convenient to use this option as it is easier, quick and you do not need to worry. We arrived in Siem Reap at 9am and a tuk tuk to the hotel was already arranged. Avoid to agree with this tuk tuk later trips (probably Angkor), do some research and negotiation around; our guy asked us for 70$ for 2 days and 3 people, at the end we paid 50$ using our hotel's tuk tuk
★★★★☆ Sep 4, 2017 (bus VIP, Transport Co Intl) :
All good, meals provided and bus was on schedule. It was raining and the bus was leaking! Pity to those whos seating was affected
★★★★☆ Aug 28, 2017 (bus Intercity, Travel Mart) :
I was anticipating the worst, but our travel went by without incident. Everything went smoothly, the wifi was spotty in certain areas, which is understandable especially in the countryside. The seats were comfortable enough and me and my friends were able to sleep in relative comfort. Upon arriving in Siem Reap though, try to find other tuktuk drivers instead of the ones from the company offering free rides to hotels.

couldn't ask for better transport from Bangkok to Siem Reap! The drivers were extremely friendly and made sure that the journey go smooth - we got dinner and some snacks, as well as water (much needed). The process of getting through the Thai-Cambodian border was explained in detail and thanks to this it went quickly and without complications. Furthermore, we were provided a free tuk tuk which drove us to our hostel. Next day the company-employed driver drove us around the temple complex and took us to a delicious traditional dinner in a locals-only place. All for 45 usd! He also booked us a bus ticket to our next destination. 5/5 and would without doubt recommend the company.

Considering the actual visa cost of 20usd, I find a bit excessive the price of 1400bath that the bus leader requested for handling the visa process...
★★★★★ Aug 8, 2017 (bus VIP, Transport Co Intl) :
Staff were very helpful in assisting everyone on the bus with their visa and border crossing. Good snacks and lunch was also provided.

Being Asian, we are allowed to stay in Cambodia for 30 days and even though i've read bad reviews about this company especially on the border crossing, i still push through because we are on a very tight schedule. Now, Let me share why I give such bad rate for this company. We were given a bottled water and a blanket (which looks like it haven't washed for a long time). The driver stopped for about an hour to rest, I guess? The worst thing happened in the border where this guy stepped in the bus and asked for our passports... After he "examined" the passports, he called me and then told me that it is less problem because I'm also asian. He then asked me to pay him 800 baht ( we are 4, 200 baht each ). I was shocked but i know this is where the "scamming" happens. At first, i tried to be calm and asked him why do we need to pay for it.. He said to skip queuing on getting stamp. I said i don't mind to queue but then he raised his voice and said, they won't wait for us. I said I've read reviews like this and then asked him, "is this a scam?" he got mad and then asked me to get our bags.*obviously guilty* In the end, we don't want any hassle and we know its still a 3hr ride from the border to Siem Reap so i just pay for it. After giving the money, I never saw his face. All the staff in the bus never looked at me anymore because they knew about the scamming. The thing is, although you know their sh*t, you cannot do anything about it. If anyone of you are reading this, NEVER choose this company.

Excellent trip, helpful staff. We took the "express border treatment" for 200BT extra. It was probably not strictly necessary, but very convenient. The guidance through the queues was pleasant. Seats are not long enough (neck room) for tall people, leg room is very good ;-)
★★★☆☆ Jul 27, 2017 (bus VIP, Transport Co Intl) :
Bus trip was good and got provided food and drinks. They tried the visa scam but we had read up and was very easy to sort it all out at the boarder. As soon as we crossed the boarder into Cambodia the drivers style of driving completely changed and was going through 60 kph areas at over 100 kph over taking everyone into oncoming traffic. Took them quite a while to realise there was water all over the floor from the toilet but I think it was fresh water as there was no smell. When we got dropped off I asked for the WiFi so I could contact our hostel as they had a free pickup service (had read about the free service they supplied) but they turned off the router so the WiFi dropped out within 2 min's of giving it to me.
★★★★★ Jul 27, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Great trip! Having read numerous reports of trouble and corruption at the boarder crossing I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and smoothness of this trip. The company offered a crossing service and to complete all the paperwork for you. I think the visa costs about 30-35 usd but the company charged 40 usd. Not that bad really. Some passengers opted to do everything themselves and save a few bucks. I don't see a problem either way. At the end of the day paying a few bucks extra for a hassle free crossing is fine. I found everyone onboard friendly and helpful. The only negative comment is the company rep did say that if you cross without paying the fee and you get delayed the bus would leave without you! It is my understanding that this cannot happen. The company is obligated to wait. Also, my friend crossed on her own and she was delayed due to long lines. The company rep went out of his way to get her through ! Very happy. All in all I would recommend this company. One last comment, I lost my photo for the Cambodia visa and the company said 100 Thb would fix the problem. I paid, problem solved. :-)

Great service. Efficient through the border. Arrived early in Siem Reap.
