Phnom Penh to Kep destination reviews

MS
Bus Universe Noble 37, Giant Ibis Transport (Giant ibis Transport), Mar 9, 2020
We left the station at least 20 minutes late. We stopped repeatedly for passengers on the way. Our 15-minute stop for a washroom break became a half hour - the last 10 minutes of which all the passengers were on the bus (without the air conditioner running) waiting for one of the staff members to return. I understand a flat tire along the way is nobody's fault, but we didn't arrive in Kampot until after 1 p.m.
