Sihanoukville to Kampot Destination Reviews

Broken seats, we couldn’t lean back for 2 and a half hours unless we wanted to crush the people sitting behind us. No air con and the road is BAD. Also the driving - not super safe. Hold tight!
Bus Minibus, Champa Tourist Bus, Apr 23, 2024
We were one hour late because the driver turned around 20 min after leaving to go get some late travelers.

Big bus from Sihanoukville to kampot. Nice employees
Bus Minibus, Sovan Rithy Express, Apr 13, 2024
The train left on time and arrived 20mins after schedule. Check in was easy. The seats were roomy and firm. No AC but with opening windows, it was a comfortable temperature.
Train #T08 Economy Seat, Cambodia Royal Railway, Apr 3, 2024
The train was over an hour late, the journey also took over 2 hours and the air conditioning worked more than poorly when the train was full!
Train #TR1400 Economy Seat, Cambodia Royal Railway, Mar 28, 2024
No ac in the mini van so the road was super long due to the heat We arrived 45min late because of the road conditions
Bus Minibus, Vibol Express, Mar 7, 2024
The bus was very luxurious - spacy, modern and clean. Even the toilet was fancy. There’s a possibility to charge your phone in your sleeping space. Only minus is - it’s very cold in the bus! Put enough clothes (warm socks since you need to be without shoes, warm pants and shirts). There’s a blanket but it’s not enough to keep you warm.
Train #T08 Economy Seat, Cambodia Royal Railway, Jan 20, 2024
Very good
Train #T08 Economy Seat, Cambodia Royal Railway, Jan 2, 2024
We waited for an hour with no contact as the company wasn’t taking our calls. Once we managed to find the driver and get in the car, the trip was rather good, except that he was playing loud videos/voice notes.
taxi SUV 4pax, SIMA Car, Nov 5, 2023
Not the company’s fault, but we had to endure about an hour on a heavily potholes, unmade up road. Otherwise. All was fine
