How to get from Bangkok to Siem Reap

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.

Where you can see meeting point inside McDonald’s? In which country? Which transport company? But if something wrong McDonald’s didn’t help you. They don’t have any responsibility. Also like Travel Mart company. Travel Mart rules on e-Ticket: 1. Check point near McDonald’s. Which McDonald’s? There are three if them! Nothing concrete. 2. You can take paper tickets in office near check point. False. You can’t do it. We try it three days different times. 3. Check in must start hour before bus departure time. False. Check in started 20minutes before, bus departure late. Bus stops not at check point, all passengers one kilometer must follow men who said, what he is from Travel Mart company. No documents, even he can’t speak english, french, spanish, deutch, or russian. Very professional company. Travel business without any main language... 20 minutes before departure arrived our bus with driver who was very agressive, he was screeming on passengers. When my wife asked him what is the reason why check in late he was angry, he loudly screeming on us what is your problem? Nobody asked me, why you asked me about that? He screemed on me and my wife what is your business, f*** you, f*** you. It was terrible, if we didn’t have our booking in Cambodia I would call police because of driver behaviour. When we passed Cambodia border bus was broken two times. Second time bus broken 8 km from Seam Reap. Drivers don’t help passengers, they event don’t give us any information. All passengers stayed behind street at night with luggages. I forget to say what bus was late about 3hours. We stoped tuk tuk and paid to driver 10dollars. Please tell me how I can review this company? Best regards, E.S. and Z.S.

the overall trip was good and the process at the border was okay too. They had a free tuk-tuk service to bring you to the accomodation from the bus station. My tuk-tuk driver tried to sell me an Angkor Wat tour and really insisted on me. When I finally said no he got very mad at me.

Bus station was easy to find, clean bus. A LOT OF LEG SPACE! There was only a few people on the bus. Great guide who told us everything that we need to know about crossing the border. It was like a vip crossing. Then we got a meal (Rice with I think chicken and vegetables). If I remember right we stoped 2 times for 10 and 15minutes. Great choice. I would rate them 10/10.

The bus had a toilet that didn't flush so just stank to high heavens! Also turned up 3 hours late to Siem Reap, even getting overtaken by the 9am bus! They did provide a tuk tuk to our hostel in Siem Reap though so get 2 stars for that and 1 as the bus was quite empty so had a lot of space.

Everything worked well, from pick up till drop off. Staff very nice. Boarder crossing went also well, without any problem. There is wifi on the bus while in Thailand and also you can charge your phone. One break on the route if I am not counting the border crossing. We got water and small cookie. I recommend

Having read many other reviews I was a bit nervous about the border crossing, however it was not problematic at all. I didn't witness any of the scams that many other reviews mention. We had an e-Visa and the process was very straightforward, theres a guide from the bus company who tells you exactly where to go who was a massive help otherwise we may have ended up in the wrong queue. My only negative comment was we weren't told to fill out an arrival card until we arrived at the counter which added an extra 10 mins as we had to fill one out and get back in the queue. The stop off point wasnt the best in terms of facilities, would be nice if they sold snacks in addition to the hot buffet food.

The bus was very nice, the staff was very helpfull and with evisa for Cambodja the boarder was No problem at all. Always very helpfull staff and not at all a feeling of wanting my money. The Missing 5 star is because of the dropoff place. Ok, if the Busses are'nt allowed to enter the city, but the tuk tuk's are so eager to sell trips to you that they talk instead of drive. We took the night bus and our driver kept talking for 15 minutes at the station before we drive off. We had said many times that we were tired and would not make a decision right now so he agreed to come back to our hotel at 6 pm to talk about a trip. After many reviews talking about tuk tuk scam we could se signs that we were about to be in one, so we choose to book trip from our hotel instead and the driver went Crazy mad when we told him. He kept saying he had to support his family and when we still said no he called us idiots and throw the 3 USD back at us and stormed away calling os nasty things. - i Guess he did'nt need the 3 USD to support his family. So buss was fine. Tuk tuk is a scam.

They ask people to arrive an hour before hand but turn up later than that. They could reduce the waiting time. However they were very good with their instructions and explanations and the bus was comfortable

Great trip. Only one drawback was that we were given seats 1 and 2 only to find that the first people on the bus were told to sit anywhere. These two then proceeded to look at their phones for the whole 8 hour trip!! If you give seat numbers at least make sure that people sit in them.

Read mixed reviews here and it is very useful. we were very satisfied with the trip. The staff explained everything clearly and WiFi worked nicely. Had an issue with the bus but travel mart solved this well and we changed bus within 5-10 mins. At the border good explanation and we were happy to pay 5-6 dollars extra to avoid standing in the queue and instead sit on the bus. The only thing confusing was the arrival station. We hired a tuk-tuk there which we also used as a driver for our Angkor Wat day trip.
