How to get from Phnom Penh to Bangkok

Why go to Bangkok

Is there another Asian capital where the latest progress and traditional lifestyle blend in such a harmony as in Bangkok? Bold skyscrapers pierce the skies, golden temples adorn the city; chic shopping malls host top world brands while the vibrant street markets tempt with delicious flavours of the yummiest and spiciest local dishes. State-of-the-art skytrain cuts through the city, flying high above the street bustle, clumsy ferries ply the muddy waters of the Chao Phraya River and it seems that real magic helps speeding cheerful pink, yellow and green taxis find their way through the labyrinths of incredible Bangkok spaghetti junctions.

As centuries ago, the stately prangs of Wat Arun catch the first rays of sun dawning over the capital and the dazzling chedis of Wat Phra Kaew shine bright. Austere giant Yaks guard the capital while the Bangkokians and the guests of the Land of Smile alike dine and wine in the vertigo rooftop restaurants, work, party and picnic. Steel and concrete have not yet taken control over leafy parks and squares, and quaint khlongs embraced by wide modern thoroughfares are reminiscent of the times when the Bangkok of today was only a newborn.

From Phnom Penh to Bangkok

Though the road distance from Phnom Penh to Bangkok is less than 700 km, a bus trip will take you about 13 hours due to border formalities. Flying saves a great deal of time but is at least twice as expensive as going by bus. There is an impressive choice of flights during the day while if you are looking for a direct overland service, currently there is only one departure a day.

From Phnom Penh to Bangkok by bus

The direct bus service between Phnom Penh and Bangkok was first launched in February, 2013. Since then the schedule of the service has been changed several times and alas, currently there is no night departure any more. Now Phnom Penh–Bangkok bus departs daily at 6am from Preah Ang Non (102 Street) – look for a big blue sign ‘Rith Mony Transport Co’. The bus reaches Bangkok by 7pm the same day; tickets cost ~USD35 (THB1150).

The bus itself is a usual big bus with reclining soft seats, four per row, with rather limited leg space, freezing air-conditioning and toilets on board. It makes several pit stops en route so you can stretch your legs, use normal toilets or stock up on munchies in small convenience stores. Some snacks, a bottle of water and lunch (rice and curry) are provided during the trip to ensure you will not die of hunger.

Exiting Cambodia and entering Thailand is normally easy. The only inconvenience you can face is long queues which are common at Poipet–Aranyaprathet border crossing. The majority of nationalities get their 15 or 30-day stamp on arrival in Thailand, check your case in advance.

The direct bus from Phnom Penh to Bangkok brings you from Cambodia to Thailand overland faster than if you combine several separate trips but you may still prefer to split your journey into several parts to make it less tiring. There are a lot of bus departures from Phnom Penh to Poipet throughout the day. All the buses take from 7 to 8 hours to get to the Thai border and cost between USD11 and USD16. Your best bet is to leave Phnom Penh not later than 11am otherwise you risk reaching the border crossing too late and have to stay in Poipet for the night.

On the Thai side, instead of going directly to the bus station in the centre of town, check the bus stand at Rong Kluea market, located just behind the Thai immigration offices. There are direct buses from there to Ekkamai bus terminal in Bangkok (THB240; four hours), though it may be difficult to get a seat for the next bus. You can also take a tuk-tuk to get to the train station to get to Bangkok by train.

Flights from Phnom Penh to Bangkok

Flying is undoubtedly the fastest and most convenient way to get from Phnom Penh to Bangkok. Flights last 1 hour 20 minutes only and arrive to the both Bangkok airports. The only drawback of flying is its price.

The only low-cost airline, currently serving the route, is AirAisa. Out of promotion periods it sells tickets for USD60 (THB2000) and up; add your check-in luggage if you have one, meals and seats at your choice and you find yourself paying a hundred bucks. AirAsia flies to the second Bangkok’s airport, Don Mueang. To get to the city from the airport, use A1 and A2 shuttle buses which bring you to Morchit BTS and Victory Monument respectively. The latter calls en route to Saphan Kwai BTS, Ari BTS and Sanam Pao BTS (THB30). A1 is especially useful if you are going to continue your journey from Bangkok to some northern or northeastern destinations by bus.

If you prefer to arrive at Suvarnabhumi airport, you can choose between Thai Airways and Bangkok Air. Neither is cheap and one-way ticket will set you back about USD200 (THB7000), though luggage and meals are included into the ticket price in this case.

Note that many bus companies offer direct transfer from Suvarnabhumi to the most popular tourist destinations, including Pattaya, Huahin or Koh Chang.

How to get around in Bangkok

Bangkok is arguably one of the friendliest cities in South East Asia as far as getting around is concerned. The city is notorious for its traffic jams, true, but out of rush hour taxis are a great way to move around the city. Brightly coloured and ubiquitous, they are wonderfully affordable with rated printed either on the window or on a table inside the car. Taxi drivers tend to use metres by default and even if they can be a bit reluctant to give you a lift to a neighbouring street, with longer hops there are no problems.

There are motorbike taxis, too, and they are a good solution for shorter trips.

Not to depend of traffic, use Bangkok BTS, aka Skytrain. Besides being an efficient means of transportation, this elevated monorail system gives you an opportunity to catch beautiful glimpses of the city from above. Especially useful for Sukhumvit area. Single ride tickets cost from THB15 to THB42.

The underground metro (MRT) has just two lines in operation with four more coming between 2021 and 2025. The blue line passes through Hua Lamphong railway station; the purple one is helpful for travelling to Thonburi. Single trips are paid by special tokens available at the stations.

Public buses are cheap and cover the whole city with their network. With a map of routes published on Bangkok Transit official web site it is easy to figure your way around.

Finally, a very useful public means of transport is river boats cruising along Chao Phraya River and Bangkok khlongs. They help you beat the road traffic and bring you to the most famous attractions of Bangkok, including the Royal Palace, Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho and Wat Arun. Tickets cost from THB12 depending on the line; THB5 for the cross-river ferry to Wat Arun.

Where to stay in Bangkok

It is easy to get lost in the sprawling neighbourhoods of Bangkok and become totally confused by the endless accommodation options on offer. First thing to do is to define the budget you are going to spend on accommodation and take into consideration the activities you are planning to be engaged in while in Bangkok.

A perennial backpackers’ favourite, Khao San Road and a couple of adjacent streets, including Soi Rambuttri, Soi Phra Atit and Soi Samsen, is the realm of budget accommodation in the capital with all the traveller-oriented services readily available. Chinatown, known as Yaowarat, possesses infinite charm for any city explorer and boasts very decent budget guesthouses. Silom and lower parts of Sukhumvit Road both have solid mad-range hotels normally located within a walking distance from BTS stations. For a shopaholic paradise head to the centrally located Siam but be prepared to pay no less than THB2000 for a simple room. The atmospheric Riverside is famous for its luxury hotels but for budget digs Thanon Charoen Krung is worth browsing.

Things to do in Bangkok

Time spent in Bangkok is never enough as the city offers virtually endless opportunities for exploring, sightseeing, dining and wining. While everyone will surely find an activity and a destination within Bangkok to their tasting, no visit to the Thai capital is complete without:

  1. Checking-in at the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew where the most revered image of Buddha in the whole country is hosted.
  2. A heavenly massage session at Wat Pho, the national headquarters of preservation of Thai medicine.
  3. A drink in one of the glamorous rooftop bars with an outstanding city view in a company of beautiful crowd.
  4. A river boat ride along Chao Phraya elbow to elbow with other commuters and unexpected water splashes into your face.
  5. Browsing the narrow twisted aisles of the crazy Chatuchak weekend market selling a wealth of souvenirs, cheap closes, local designer creations and exotic animals.
  6. A relaxed afternoon at Jim Thompson House, a leafy little oasis of peace and tranquillity by the side of a khlong.
  7. A strenuous ascend to the main prang of Wat Arun or to the top of the Golden Mountain.
  8. A ride on a skytrain for a bird’s eye view of the city.

Have a pleasant stay in Bangkok. Relax and enjoy – we know, you will!

Onward travel from Bangkok

The capital of the country, Bangkok is a major transportation hub of Thailand. All the railway routes originate from Hua Lamphong, Bangkok’s main railway station. Two largest bus terminals, the Northern bus terminal Morchit and the Southern bus terminal Sai Tai Mai serve northern and northeastern (the former) and southern destinations (the latter). The most popular routes from Bangkok you may be interested in include the former Lanna capital Chiang Mai, in the north, a variety of sea resorts on the Andaman coast, i.e. Phuket or Krabi and the famous trio of the islands of the Gulf, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.

Passenger reviews out of total 4,380 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 ^_^

★★★★☆ Nov 18, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
WiFi was enough for WhatsApp. Bus was a bit hot since they didn’t have the AC on full blast, but we asked them to turn it up and from there it was better. Smooth ride, nice bus. Way nicer than the cheaper bus option.
★★★★★ Nov 15, 2017 (bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport)
★★★★☆ Nov 15, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Very happy with the service! Smooth ride so very good drivers. WiFi and electricity available are definitely a plus. Would just like to suggest improving the lavatory facilities on the bus. Thanks!
★★★★☆ Nov 14, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Nice trip in general. We've had a smooth ride, the bus was quite comfy. And the operators were very helpful especially when getting us through the border. The only downside was we were dropped off at some street in Khao San Road rather than to a terminal.
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Everything was on time and the bus very comfortable.
★★★★★ Nov 13, 2017 (bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Comfy bus, very clean, good wifi available, good driver, very impressed by service, highly recommended
★★★☆☆ Nov 12, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Tutto bene fino a quando: - il personale ci ha lasciato soli per un ora alla frontiera senza dirci nulla - abbiamo cambiato bus alla frontiera e il secondo non aveva wifi e soprattutto un problema al motore - ci avevano detto che ci lasciavano vicino all'aeroporto e invece no. I bus comunque sono puliti e confortevoli
★★★★☆ Nov 12, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Everything was good, except that we have to wait for another bus at the border for more than 30 minutes in the heat and without any Ibis personnel to at least know how long do we have to stand there. If we knew, we would go somewhere in the shade or the nearest store/bar.
★★★★☆ Nov 10, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport)
★★★★★ Nov 10, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :

★★★★★ Nov 10, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The seats were comfortable, they provided a meal which was tasty, and the wifi was great. Short stops as well, the trip only took 6 hours!! They were nice enough to drop us off at the train station close to the airport instead of Khao San Road!! Amazing service, would recommend!!
★★★★★ Nov 9, 2017 (bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport) :
very comfortable bus. We were offered snacks and water with 2 stops to stretch legs. Also one longer stop for food. Only negative is the style of driving but for Cambodian standards it was fairly peaceful. We arrived before the estimated time which was great. Would definitely use the service again. Oh, and the wifi is spotty but it's good enough ;)
★★☆☆☆ Nov 7, 2017 (van Regional, Thero Express) :
So the van driver, drove too fast feels like it’s 80-120kph. And we felt so unsafe because of his driving skills. Even on the rough road he did not slow down. Maybe the driver should stick to a safer speed limit. It’s okay if he drive too fast as long as the passengers feel safe. And they did not orient us much earlier that we have to transfer another van on the Thailand border but it’s okay because the other agency explained to us. We just kept on waiting for the van, and kept ignoring the assigned guy of the other agency because we thought it’s a scam. But so far, the service is good, the staff are kind and guided us. It’s just the driving and the speed limit is our main negative comment here. Thank you and more power.
★★★☆☆ Nov 6, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The drive was alright, a little bit bumpy and the speed was safe all along the road, but it's not a good experience with my nose as I keep having unsavory smells from the toilet, and the noise of toilet door was very loud, they need to do some work with toilet.
★★★★☆ Nov 6, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport)
★★★★★ Nov 4, 2017 (bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport) :

This actually has been the 3rd time we have used Giant Ibis. My husband and I travelled from Hoi Chi MiCity to Phnom Pehn. From Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. From Seim Reap to Bangkok and all journeys have been very good and have arrived on time. Would most definitely recommend an excellent service.
★★★★★ Oct 16, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
I enjoyed the ride!! Their service is superb! Very accommodating, well assisted, and even he state some background in thier country - Cambodia. I forgot his name though, but he was the one assisted us from exit (which he advised me not to give money to the immigration since I won't be paying any penny) until we got our entry visa stamp here in Thailand. The food was great too! They served breakfast and lunch. I would super recommend this bus, they're fantastic and the seats are very comfy!! And btw, thanks to our guide from giant ibis bus siem reap to bangkok 16.10.2017 7:45am trip. Thank you!!

★★★☆☆ Oct 11, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The beds were comfy but the door of the toilet was quite noisy and disruptive in the middle of the night. Water/urine all over the bathroom floor and no running water to flush - we had to take of our shoes as we entered the bus so had no shoes when in the toilet. Overall, use the bus but go to the toilet beforehand.

V spacious bus with air con, WiFi and plugs.
★★★★☆ Oct 4, 2017 (bus Universe Noble-37, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The bus and its food was good, its comfortable for a long trip, but the only thing that the bus company should improve is the drop off point. Passengers were asked to get off the bus down the road of Khao San. As a tourist you will feel lost in the middle of the street. We thought we will be dropping off at a bus station in Khao San Road as indicated in our voucher.

Very glad I booked my trip with this company. Bus departed on time, we get water, a pasterie and info about the stops. I had so much space in the bus, that I comfortabily could sleep for a few hours. We arrived earlier than it was mentioned, so I had a little problem with my pickup driver who would be at the busstand 1 hour later.. But.. the nice and helpfull guy in the bus made a phonecall to the hotel to change the pickup hour! ( there was no wifi on that day). Great service, I recommend Giant!!

★★★☆☆ Sep 1, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Good service. Lights from road were not blocked for passengers in the first row. Also, horn honking is so loud inside the cabin towards the front that it is hard to sleep overall.
★★★★★ Aug 28, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
The bus was clean and we had a good night sleep on the bus. We felt safe as the road wasn't bumpy and the drivers were careful driving on the road. We arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule. The toilet in the bus was clean and it was a pleasant experience. The charging port worked well but wifi didn't work that well. Overall, it was a good trip and Giant Ibis is highly recommended.
★★★★☆ Aug 22, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
IT was a great experience, we like the beds more than on other sleaping busses we have had in Vietnam. Because of the dubble bed and the real "bed" in state of a laying down chear.

Convenient and comfortable bus seats! Could push the seats way back to sleep. Got a pain au chocolate and canned latte for breakfast and a boxed egg fried rice with few cucumbers for lunch. The staff was resourceful and helpful in going through the immigration process. I didn't feel lost about what was going on. :)

Had an amazing trip in the sleeper bus. They had double beds so two in one bed. Ours was at the very back, only top bunk. It was very comfortable. They had wifi too but didn't always work. Got a free bottle of water! Definitely recommend it!

It was good but it could have been better if they announced before the trip that they can also drop passengers off near the international airport. Instructions were also not clear. We thought they will drop us off at the airport. When the staff told us that we can get off the bus, he didn't tell us anything. They left us on the side of the road. We only saw train station so we asked how far is the airport, he just said 5, without clarifying if it's 5 minutes if we will walk or 5 minutes if we will take a cab. We were left wondering where we are. We walked 5 minutes under the scorching heat of the sun, carrying our heavy luggage, with my dad who is a senior citizen and who can barely walk. Then a taxi driver approached us, we were kind of wary because of the feedback that we read about scammers in Thailand, good thing there is someone who can speak a bit of english and told us we need to take a cab as the airport is still a bit far. The taxi driver charged us 150 baht which we thought was a bit too much but was ok since we didn't have any choice and we were really tired. Anyway experience riding with Giant Ibis was ok until that incident.
