How to get from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap

What about

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.

From Phnom Penh to Siem Reap by bus

It is no exaggeration to say that Siem Reap is the main tourist destination in Cambodia, and as such it enjoys great transport connections with the main cities of the country and the capital. The choice of operator serving the route is wide, with buses leaving for Siem Reap throughout the day. A 320 km journey from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap may take anywhere between 5½ hours to seven hours, so try to leave Phnom Penh before or around noon to get to Siem Reap before late. Morning buses obviously steal the precious daytime of your journey, but otherwise are quite a convenient variant to get to your destination. They normally make pit stops during the way, and you have a lot of time to enjoy local pastorals blooming with lotus flowers and peppered with water buffalos grazing amidst bright green rice paddies.

Strange enough, but the choice of night buses is limited. If you opt for one leaving around midnight, you will get to Siem Reap by 6am or 7am, have the whole day ahead and save a couple of dollars on a hotel room – a welcome compensation for having spent the night on the move.

Currently, the only bus company in Cambodia which sells tickets online is Giant Ibis Transport. They have three morning buses at 7.45am, 8.45am and 12.30pm and from one to three night buses at 10.30pm, 11pm and 11.30pm daily.

From Phnom Penh to Siem Reap by morning bus

Morning buses are ordinary big buses (in Giant Ibis, they use Universe Luxury ones). Tickets cost USD15, which is a bit higher than you can find on the market. The cost includes insurance coverage of all passengers, a snack and a bottle of water. All buses have electrical outlets for charging your gadgets during the trip and (a local wonder!) free Wi-Fi.

Note that there are no toilets on board. Giant Ibis buses make two stops on the route between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap: a 10-minute bathroom stop and a longer half an hour lunch stop at a restaurant about half the way between the two cities. Lunch is not included into the ticket price. The majority of dishes on offer in the restaurant cost between USD3 and USD5.

From Phnom Penh to Siem Reap by night bus

If you have never travelled in a sleeper bus in Asia, go ahead. You are not necessarily going to like, but it is an experience not to be misses. Pros are that you save some money – no need to pay extra for your hotel room, just USD15 for your bus ticket – and the daytime of your journey. Cons are that sleeping bunks are not too comfy, especially if you have long legs. There is no entertainment program during the night trip which is great, but note that lower bunks do not have reading lights; so if you would like to read be sure to book the top bunk.

There are toilets on board, and night buses make a stop half the way between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. You can take an advantage of it to grab a quick bite, too.

In Phnom Penh, all the Giant Ibis Transport buses leave from the company’s office in 106 Street, close to the night market and the riverfront. If you stay in one of the company’s partner hotels, you can order a complimentary pickup service. Check the list of the partner hotels on the Giant Ibis Transport web site or inquire in your hotel.

In Siem Reap, buses drop off passengers at Giant Ibis Transport bus terminal. It is conveniently located in downtown, close to Angkor National Museum. From there it is about two km to the Old Market area where you can find the highest concentration of budgets digs, and even less to the leafy Wat Bo Road with stylish boutique hotels. You can walk to your accommodation or take a tuk-tuk – there are plenty of them meeting arriving buses.

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.

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.

From Siem Reap to Thailand

A three-hour bus journey brings you to the border town of Poipet. Some buses still practice numerous stops during the trip at local souvenir shops and restaurants which pay them commission on every dollar you spend with them. But otherwise there are no other dangers or annoyances while getting to the border. No touts are meeting you at the Thai side offering their help with your Thai visa and the only disappointment is that the queues may be quite long. On the Thai side, walk to Rong Klua Market for buses heading to Bangkok and some other destinations throughout Thailand or catch a tuk-tuk to get to Aranyaprathet bus station which has a wider choice of destinations. Find more information on getting from Aranyaprathet to Bangkok here.

There is a direct international bus from Siem Reap to Bangkok, too. If you use this one, you will not need to change transport at the border, which is the case with two separate trips – from Siem Reap to Poipet and from Aranyaprathet to Bangkok – and with other ‘direct’ buses from Siem Reap to anywhere in Thailand.

Passenger reviews out of total 2,673 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 ^_^

★★☆☆☆ Sep 18, 2017 (bus Express, Mekong Express) :
Almost all the information on 12go is incorrect. Including pick up location, actually 2kms away. Transit time is a minimum of 6 hours, not the 5 stated. Can book through their website for $12 instead of $15/$16 Many stops along the way
★★★★★ Sep 13, 2017 (bus Express, Mekong Express) :
Very comfortable, and comfortable, you get a small bottle of water and an appetizer
★★★★★ Sep 11, 2017 (bus Express, PSD Xpress)

Great way to travel! Bed was comfortable and I slept the whole way/
★★★☆☆ 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 29, 2017 (bus Express, Mekong Express) :
5* service on board but the departure and drop off were at different addresses to what we were told in the email.
★★★★★ 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.

★★★★☆ Aug 7, 2017 (bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Pretty decent ride for 2 persons. You get a water and a snack included. 3 stops were great for a legstretch or to eat some food at the local restaurant. At arrival people are trying to get you into a tuktuk straight away, but hey thats what they make a living of.

★★★★★ Jun 26, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Very comfortable & clean! Equipped with wifi (slow but enough), water bottle & blanket. Plus they turned off all the lights too! One more thing to note is probably that our bus arrived in the destination 1 hour earlier than scheduled (I'm assuming it's a buffer time) so if your hotel arrange a pick up for you, better to take note of this. Otherwise, excellent service! :)
★★★☆☆ Jun 24, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
I do not think I get the value for money from this trip. The blanket smells a little I guess they wont be washing them frequently. The wifi did not work after about 2 hours of the journey. Mine was the last seat so did not get to choose my seat and slept with a stranger of opposite sex and it was quite awkward because the bed are stick to each other

★★★★☆ Jun 4, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Although the beds where different to what we expected, beds instead of reclining chairs, my group of 15 people were very comfortable. If we had known the bed configuration we would have booked different beds for our less mobile passengers. However, overall it was a good experience.
★★★☆☆ Jun 1, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
advertise wifi and power at each seat/bed but neither were turned on for the while journey. beds comfortable but not adjustable and basic. blanket and pillow provided and both were clean. a little more leg room than other sleeper buses experienced.

We tried to get there by tuk tuk but he didn't know well were was the place, we gave him the address but we couldnt find it. After many tries, we went to other TUK tuk and he left us in other place. We send a email to the bus company but didnt respond until we told them in person what happened and left. The map in Google maps with your address get us to other place in the same street, but very far. We missed our bus and by the time we get there they didn't have other bus until 2pm, didn't want to give our money back or other options. We ended in other company that helped us and called other place that had bus every hour to Siem Reap .

We left 45 minutes late waiting for passengers from hotels. Although we were on time to Siem Reap. Still very frustrating having been there early for the departure as the website requested. The air-conditioning was weak in the back of the bus. Also could not hear the announcements in the back of the bus. Seats were comfortable.
★★★★★ Apr 24, 2017 (bus Kia Grandbird, Giant Ibis Transport) :
Nothing to complain about, good service and water included. Big + for the chargers and wifi on the buses!
★★★☆☆ Apr 23, 2017 (van Regional, Thero Express) :
AC Working but no WIFI pretty cramped bags all over the place. There should be one row less as there are 5. Departure and arrival on time. So it was OK but would choose another Service next time.

We had no wifi the bus stopped for long times. The steward was rude when I asked about wifi. He probably didn't know I could understand what he was saying about me to the bus driver.

No snacks. The bathroom had no light. Wifi was not working. The bed was ok but for the price I expected the service to be much more better.

We would like to inform you that, we already checked with Giant Ibis bus operator.
They did inform us back, they usually have snack and free wifi on the bus and we also checked toilet before bus going to leave from the terminal.
But to be honest, for the snack we do sure that might be your misunderstanding but for the mobile wifi is sometime is not really stable because of the local signal and the forecast possible too.

By the way, we will pass your comment to the bus company instead of you.
Thank you very much for the review indeed.

Surprise to find double beds with cushion and blankets. Unfortunately no supply of any snacks, just water. Sad thing was that toilet was blocked and without water half-way through the trip. Toilet door was loose and ratteling all night. Ralf Horsch
