    i will be travelling to siem reap with 5 of my friends next week, and would like to know if any of you had experience with booking a private minivan that will go from poipet straight to the hotel in siem reap. as we are all below 18, our parents are not comfortable with the idea of us take private taxis, i think they're afraid of us being kidnapped or robbed along the way.

    we will reach poipet at around 12pm, and hope to reach siem reap before dark. do any of you have other alternatives(bus etc)? also we heard that it is not possible for other buses and taxis to stop in poipet because it is controlled by the government. is it true? thank-you in advance for your help :)

    He can pick you up from the border or arrange cars to pick up.

    If you are coming from Thailand you can book a bus ticket all the way to SR.
    At Poipet bus terminal (there is a free bus from the border, it is not neccessary to pay to get to the bus station regardless of what you are told) there are frequent buses to SR. last one is about 4 pm. You can also hire taxis from there as well.

    So no it isn't true that there are no buses or taxis from Poipet.

    One small problem if you take the bus is that there isn't a bus station at SR, so the bus will probably drop you near airport road and you have to get a tuk tuk into town. This should cost no more than $4 (for the whole tuk tuk not per person) however, you will be asked for a bit more but don't pay it (even 4 is a rip off).

    Do not change money at the border. Cambodia accepts US $. ATMs give US $. At Poipet the bus station will take Thai baht (300 b or $9 to SR).
