How to get from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh

Wide leafy boulevards, exquisite Buddhist temples and a beautiful riverside promenade – even if Phnom Penh cannot boast a lot of large-scale tourist attractions, it possesses its own special charm. Easily one of the least developed capitals of South East Asia, Phnom Penh is changing rapidly nowadays; new Western-style shopping malls and high-rises make their way to the city, and there are even air-conditioned public buses cruising its streets. You can have a look at the darkest years of Khmer history in Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum or venture further afield to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. But you can choose just to enjoy Phnom Penh’s – alas! – rapidly vanishing French flavour, indulge in world-wide cuisine offered in its fancy restaurants at half the price you pay anywhere else or absorb the local colours visiting markets and people-watching. There is an abundance of worth-seeing places of interest around Phnom Penh, easily explored during a day trip, including Phinom Chisor, a stunning example of the Angkorian period temples, or Koh Dach, the Silk Island, where you can witness the process of silk weaving and buy some of the finest textiles in Cambodia. All in all, architectural wonders, busy nightlife venues and shopping opportunities galore in Phnom Penh. It may not become your favourite city in Asia, but Phnom Penh definitely deserves a closer look.

How to get from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh

Nearly every guesthouse in Ho Chi Minh and all the travel agencies in the city will be ready to sell you a ticket to almost any destination throughout South East Asia; no wonder that Ho Chi Minh–Phnom Penh route is no exception. You can get to the Cambodian capital either by plain or by bus. The former way is considerably more expensive but quicker; the latter is cheaper but takes longer.

From Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh to by bus

Giant Ibis Transport is one of the leading operators serving the route between Ho Chi Minh and Phnom Penh. Cambodia-based bus company boasts excellent safety record and provides a level of service you could have hardly expected to get in Cambodia a couple of years ago. They provide complimentary pick-up from their partner accommodation in Ho Chi Minh (require in your hotel or guesthouse), serve snacks and water during the trip and even offer free Wi-Fi and electrical outlets for charging your gadgets on board their buses. For Ho Chi Minh–Phnom Penh route the company uses full-sized comfortable buses; tickets from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh with Giant Ibis cost USD18.

In Ho Chi Minh, Giant Ibis buses depart from their ticket office in Pham Ngu Lao Street in District 1, which lies within walking distance from many budget digs in Pham Ngu Lao–Bu Vien area.

Giant Ibis operates at least one daily bus from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh. It departs at 8.30am and gets to the destination some six hours later. The total distance between the two cities is 240 km. Travel time depends greatly on the time spent at the immigration on the Vietnamese and Cambodian sides and on ferry crossing. In certain periods there is one more bus leaving Ho Chi Minh at 12.30pm.

There is a lunch stop half the way between Ho Chi Minh and Phnom Penh at Banyan Tree Restaurant located in the duty free zone after you have done with immigration formalities on the Vietnamese side. Note that lunch in not included into your ticket price; expect to pay USD3-4 for a dish.

In Phnom Penh buses bring their passengers to Giant Ibis bus station in 106 Street close to the night market and riverfront. You can connect to other Giant Ibis buses there and leave your luggage for a few hours to take a stroll around the city while waiting for your next bus. Tuk-tuk drivers welcome every arrival, so you will not have any problem with getting to any part of the city in case you are planning to spend some time in Phnom Penh.

From Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh by air

There are direct flights between Ho Chi Minh and Phnom Penh performed by regular and low-cost airlines. Travel time is about one hour, but it is often impossible to find tickets under USD100 – if only you do not hit a great sale period. Cambodia Angkor, Vietnam Airlines and Qatar Airways all operate direct flights from Phnom Penh to Saigon. If overland travel is not your thing, consider this option, then.

Where and when to obtain your Cambodian visa?

Before buying your ticket to Cambodia, check visa requirements for your passport. Though you can apply for VOA right at the border, it is still advisable to arrange for your visa in advance – just to be on the safe side. You can do it directly thought the Cambodian Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh located in No 41 Phung Khac Khoan. Visas are processes the same day and generally there are no queues. Another option is to obtain your Cambodian visa online as E-Visas are accepted at the Svay Rieng–Bavet border crossing which the buses heading from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh use. Tourist E-Visa cost USD30 plus USD7 for processing.

Note that whatever way for obtaining your Cambodian visa you choose, if travelling with Giant Ibis buses, at the border you will be charged additional USD5 for batch processing of passengers’ passports.

Connecting to other Giant Ibis buses in Phnom Penh

From their bus station in Phnom Penh Giant Ibis Transport operate three more routes: to Sihanoukville, to Kampot and to Siem Reap.

The only destination to which you can connect travelling from Ho Chi Minh the same day is Siem Reap. In this case you need to take either morning or afternoon bus from Ho Chi Ming to Phnom Penh (USD18) and then to hop onto the night bus from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap (USD15). If the amazing Angkor complex is the next entry in your must-visit list, you can buy a joint ticket directly from Ho Chi Minh to Siem Reap. You will have enough time to make a brief tour of Phnom Penh before the departure of your night bus to Siem Reap.

For morning travel to Siem Reap as well as travel to Sihanoukville and Kampot from Ho Chi Minh you need to buy two separate tickets – first from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh and then from Phnom Penh to your destination – and spend a night in Phnom Penh to proceed your journey on the following day after your arrival from Vietnam.

Getting around

If you have traveled at least a bit anywhere in Cambodia, you may have noticed that the Khmers know no modesty as far as the width of their roads is concerned. This local love for expansions makes Phnom Penh tough for covering on foot. Tuk-tuks and motorbike taxis are ubiquitous and plentiful; they are an affordable and easy way to get around the city. Expect to pay from USD1 to USD3 for a tuk-tuk ride, even less for a motorbike taxi.

Renting a scooter is also an option in Phnom Penh. Daily rates are about USD5. Note that helmets are a must, traffic is chaotic and accidents with casualties are not unheard of. Rent only if you are an experienced rider – we mean with some experience in Asian countries.

There are public buses in Phnom Penh. Tickets cost less than USD0.5 per trip. The most useful route is Line 03 which stops at the International Airport, Central Market and Night Market. Line 01 combined with some walking brings you to the Royal Palace and National Museum.

Further afield from Phnom Penh

Located literally in the heart of the country, Phnom Penh has good transport connections with all the other cities and towns around Cambodia and in the neighbouring countries. Apart from the already mentioned Kampot, Sihanoukville and Ho Chi Minh, some of the destinations which you can reach overland from Phnom Penh, include Poi Pet, Battambang, Koh Kong, Preah Vihear and Mondulkiri in Cambodia; Bangkok in Thailand; Vientiane and Pakse in Laos.

Passenger reviews out of total 9,605 passengers who 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 while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

We've got a booking confirmation on Dec. 8, 2018 @ 6:30AM from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam to Phnom Penh, Cambodia for 4 persons. We've arrived 30 minutes before the schedules time and when the bus arrived, the bus conductors confirmed that we are on the right bus so we've sitted comfortably on any of the seats available. But when the other passengers arrived they have an assigned seats and we just wait for them to settle down without us knowing that the bus is fully booked already and we are not included even though we have our booking reservations/confirmation. We've talked to the bus dispatcher and let them now that we should be in that 6:30AM bus but to no avail he just talked to someone on the phone and let us have a bus ticket for 7:30AM scheduled time with assigned seats. It's really a chaos since we've already plan our trip in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Overall, it's not really a good experience for us since we've booked it online with the scheduled we plan to take and paid for it already and have our booking confirmation.

Limo style seat. Very comfortable. Adequate AC. No food inside(smelly ones only I think, coz some were still eating and they didnt stopped them), Helped us with the border crossing and it went smoothly(getting a Visa before hand instead of on arrival greatly helps too). Stopped twice after the Cambodia border. Driver and conductor rushed us on both stop though. So get only easy to eat food on stop and go to toilet fast. Everything else is good. Oh and beware of guys on the bus stop that will over charge you to take you to your hotel. Cheers!

★★★★☆
The bus was pretty straight forward except from at the Vietnam border which was a nightmare, this was no fault of the driver or tour guide as it was a Cambodian public holiday so this took more than expected to get through. The reason I give 4 is because the driver failed to inform the group of what was going on throughout the process at the border, we were just left to stand around, we had to approach him on multiple occasions and all he could state is that it was a public holiday and it will take longer. All in all though the bus ride itself was great and there was just the right amount of stops.

The ride was pleasant and uneventful. We had some issues with our guide not accepting our currency because it was “too old” or had a very small tear in it, but she worked with us to find an atm before the boarder to get new bills. We also ended up overpaying because we didn’t have exact change and she didn’t give our change back to us.

Having travelled with Giant Ibis a day after this trip it reflects very poorly on SinhTourist. It should be made more obvious that wed’d be fobbed off with another operator on an old and uncomfortable bus with poorly trained staff (no communication during border crossing whatsoever), and how hard is it to list an accurate destination arrival time?). “It’s asia” doesn’t cut it anymore. SinhTourist and Long Phuong need to up their game. 12Go should update this trip to include details/photos of the actual bus company used (Long Phuong Cambodia), we should at least get an accurate description for the premium of booking through the site.

The office was not yet open an hour before departure, but we did depart from Ho Chi Minh on time. They provided snacks, water and wet tissues. The guide was polite and helpful during the trip, particularly in facilitating passports/ visas It was a relatively safe and uneventful ride. The unit may seem old but the service was still good. thank you very much!

No information given about how often we’d stop or how long for breaks. WiFi not working the entire trip. Got the impression the employee was new to the job.

★★★☆☆
I am dismayed. I booked the VIP sleeper Bus the one shown with the double decker bus. Once na bus arrived it is just an ordinary bus ( inclined seat) with no WiFi. Only 1bottled water. I keep showing them my printed tickets. Why I am getting this bus instead. Driver and dispatcher don't speak English. So there we arrived late in Phnom Penh again I went to Kumho office and still ask why. They only said no bus like that. It's because I book online. Wtf! I just hate the tiring travel. No more online bus booking with 12go. Just sad. I paid more.

bus VIP Sleeper 41, Kumho Samco
★★★☆☆
We paid for a VIP sleeper, but instead got a regular seated bus. When we asked the conductor about this he said their company didn't do sleeper buses at all. Very confused and disappointed as to why this option was listed on the website at all. The bus staff had very little English, which made the border crossing confusing and frustrating.

bus VIP Sleeper 41, Kumho Samco
★★☆☆☆
After booking on the luxury sleeper bus that was in the description I felt a little better about the journey. However, the bus was small, without reclining seats or a toilet. Absolutely not as described. You expect a little deviation from the pictures but Kumho Samco even said they don’t have any sleeper buses. Not sure where the problem lies but I was not happy with the experience.

Driver didn’t tell us anything about the departure from Vietnam and visa for Cambodia. Just took our passport and didn’t say anything to us. I’d appreciate a little more info on my most important item while traveling

Although the bus was a little worn out, most hand handles and bottle holders are broken, it was still relatively clean and comfortable. The bus ride was smooth and okay except when we arrived in the capital where the driver would go bumper to bumper with smaller cars, motorcycles and tuktuk causing excessive sudden breaks. The disappointing and aggravating part was when we were being charged a dollar or 250,000 dong (which is totally not a dollar in real time convertion) by the guide for the arrival and departure card that they "bought" from the police (which we primarily promised we would pay later) when we don't need a visa as an ASEAN resident (Philippine passport holder). Good thing we heard the conversation between a fellow Filipino and the guide that they need a receipt for that card in return for paying the fee which the guide couldn't prepare, they told us it was THE Vietnam-Cambodia border scam which we almost fell for and that you can just ask for the form from an immigration officer for free. I don't know if the other nationalities with visa-on-arrival got also ripped off by an additional fee for visa processing. I will not ride with them just for that reason.

One of our seats were broken which destroyed alot of the experience. Other than that, the bordercontroll from vietnam to cambodia went very smooth and its a plus that we got a little snack :)

It was nice! Great service! Only the bus could have been a bit more modern - the seats were very hard and it had an ancient air conditioning system, that did not help a lot during the hottest hours of the day. We had a delay of 1 1/2 hours, although there were no traffic jams or problems on our route. I don't quite get that? The pre-ordered tuk-tuk of my hotel waited for me all this time!
