Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh Destination Reviews

NG
The bus arrived on time and we were given water, an iced coffee and a croissant. The bus was comfortable with reclining seats and lots of leg room. The journey and border crossing was smooth as the staff helped with obtaining visas for Cambodia.

Excellent service, bus left on time and was comfortable. Passports given over to the assistants when on the bus itself, who spoke good English and then helped with a smooth border crossing into Cambodia. Cold water bottles handed out at the start, and we’re quickly served a complimentary Vietnamese coffee which was delicious. Decent lunch included at a roadside cafe after the border, and the journey took as long advertised. Would travel again with this company.

The bus ran to time and the staff's explanation of each step of the border process was clear, meaning there were no issues, even when other travellers did not have the correct visas. The staff fixed this and after only a short delay everyone was back on the bus.

Bus at time, exchange money at their office Dong to Riel, SIM card a bit more expensive than the original but available with the best phone provider of Cambodia "cellcard" for 12$/30 days (6go per day + 120min call). The bus was comfortable and the stuff really friendly and English speaker. They provide some snack on the way and few stops to rest. They are also the one dealing with the passeport and visa for Cambodia. I recommande this company!

Amazing Bus & great organisation. Driving style was a bit aggressiv and they took 10$ more for cambodian visa, which is very sad. But as everything went super well it’s okay…

The journey went really well and we received great support at the border. The staff were very nice and helpful. Can highly recommend this coach trip.

The AC wasn't really working , so it was a very hot and stuffy ride. They took our passports, and didn't seem to want to be asked questions. We got to Phnom Penh safe, but it definitely was a 3 star experience.
