Hi
Anyone can advise the night bus from Sihanoukville to Siem Reap , I need to know the departure time and where can I get the tickets. Do I need an advance booking ?

I think it leaves about 8.00pm and typically you'll be picked up from your guest house. Every one in SIhanoukville sells tickets from the local supermarket to your guest house.It is always best to book in advance rather than leave it to the last minute, but if you are travellling over Xmas booking several days in advance is probably a good idea.

Sounds like an intresting options instead of an overnight at PP.

Just wondering how many hours does it typically take?

Hi,
As I recall, about 10/12 hours, but it beats a night in PP.

Thanks Mike.....

I'm really not to big on the big cities (anywhere in the world) as well.

We usually do an organized city tour, walk around a bit,shop and then its so long big city.

Most likely we will do that bus trip when departing Sihanoukville.

Much appreciated.

does anybody know how much the overnight costs? Is the price any different from Sihanoukville to Siem Reap than it is coming the other way?

There's different buses between Sihanouville and Siem Reap: mine was a 'regular' bus with seats, 3 across (so nice wide seats), but there's also a sleeper bus with beds. Ask which bus they will book you on.

Just fyi - the bus station in Sihanoukville has moved, it is no longer in town like some books still say.


My trip was ok, we got there in about 10 hours - even after switching to another bus by the side of the highway at 1 AM with no explanation why. I got a ticket all the way to Siem Reap, switching buses at Sihanoukville, from Kampot and think I paid about US$ 15.

Chocgirl.....

Thanks for chiming in about your experiences withthis bus ride.

I asked about such a bus trip on another forum and people were pretty much unaminous advising me STRONGLY not to make that bustrip.

I'm the adventurous type unfortunatley, so whenpeople tell me not to do it...I'm most likely going to do it...LoL!

Or....

Hopefully some of the proposed airline flights willbe up and running this coming Janruary.

Thanks!
