Good bus from PP to SR
Hi, I need some advice.
I'm female traveling solo and plan to take a bus from PP to SR. I read about bus scams and now a bit worried. Is it better to buy the ticket from the hotel? Is Paramount good enough? Or better take Mekong Express? Will departing at around 2 pm from PP be too late/dark arriving in SR? Should I take earlier schedule?

Any of the travel agents in PP should be able to help. Sorya is a good one to keep an eye out for.
With respect to arriving late at night in SR, do you already have accom organised? If so, you'll be OK. I wouldn't want to be wandering around at that time of night looking for somewhere to stay.

Thanks! I'll see about Sorya.
Yes, I've booked an accommodation, and might as well ask for a tuk tuk pick up

I've always taken Sorya. It isn't high end. However, I've never had any problems regarding thefts or nasty passengers or drivers. It has taken longer than the advertised 6 hours a few times.
One stop for about 30 minutes midway at a hotel that serves lunch and has decent toilets. Outside the hotel are a number of small shops and street stalls if your not interested in dining in.
Should cost around 6$. If your hotel arranges the ticket it might be around $12. There has always been a small army of tuktuk drivers waiting at the bus station but you could avoid the hassle and arrange a pick up.

Hi, thanks for the info. I think it rather takes 7-8 hour long then, just in case? I'll keep that in mind

I had good experiences with Phnom Penh Sorya and Capitol Tour. Just walk down to one of their offices and book the ticket, will only be around $6.

I go Giant Ibis. Nicer buses. Western movies with volume adjustment at your seat. AC works. More expensive.

Just about to reccommend Giant Ibis. Little more expensive but very comfortable and no noisy karaoke just a western film to watch. I did Phnom Penh to Sihonoukville but they run to Seam Reap.Twice a day I think from Street 102 next to site of night market on Riverside
