from phnom penh to bangkok?
4th August, 2007
hey, i am looking for advice about taking a bus from phnom penh to bangkok.
first of all and most important - is it a safe trip? did anyone encounter thefts or heard about them in that route?
is the road in an ok condition?
how much would that bus ticket cost, and how long approximately will it take to get to bangkok?
thanks a lot!

The bus to Bangkok goes via Siem Reap. Cost to Siem Reap is US$5-10 depending on the bus company -- trip takes around four hours. Onwards cost to Bangkok I'm not sure of the cost. We cover the Siem Reap to Bangkok leg in this story.

This route will take you two days in buses overland.
The PP to SR bus will take 5-6 hours and the earliest bus arrives at about 1.00pm in Siem Reap (leaving PP at about 7am), prices from $4.
The bus from SR to Bangkok runs once per day leaving SR at 7am in the morning and arriving in the Khoa San road area about 12 hours later (less or more depending on how long it takes the get to the border) This ticket costs $12.
Air asia flights from PP to Bangkok may be within your budget from about $45-$60 depending on how far in advance you book your ticket (more than one week to get a good price) and this journey will then take only 1 hour. If you have already seen the temples then I would suggest looking into the cheap flights as you would have to pay for food and a room in SR en route anyway.

my hubby & i took the bus from pp to bangkok directly and it took less than a day. booked at capitol cafe (recommended) in PP. though the road conditions is not perfect in Cambodia, the journey was safe. we were also well-guided at the border. Once arrived at the Thai border, we got onto a mini-bus to Bangkok. From there, we realised how well Thailand has been developed - well-paved road, highways and an ice-cream treat in 7-Eleven!!

I didn't know there was a bus from PP directly to Bangkok over one day. Do you remember how much you paid per ticket, what time you left PP and roughly what time you arrived in Bangkok?
