    Hello travelers!

    We are headed to Bangkok tomorrow from Siem Reap. Which bus is best to take once we get to Aranyaprathet? Also I have heard different times it takes between 3-6 hours. Which is more accurate?

    From Bangkok bus station about how far is the train station? Tuk tuk it there or get a taxi?

    too late for you-but for lurkers who seem to think all info is here
    1.depends on bus-yes, it may take from 3 hrs (a racey driver high on ya-ba) to 6-the slowest local bus-in fact the train-as its cheapest.
    2.as there are several different routes=lines, the place in Bkk also varies. And BKK has at least 5 different train stations-so this is too complicated to tell. get that guidebook.
    3.NEVER ever get a tukx2 here in BKK-thats only for daft idiots who seem to think subsizing redshirtfanatics with overloud screaming voices is the rule. Plus that-happy you-tukx2 are not even allowed in any of BKk's main 3 busstations. There are also dozens and dozens of citybuses.

    Agree tuk-tuks are noisy,dirty and over-priced compared a metered air-conditioned taxi which incidently are usually driven by Kon Isan.probably red-shirts but I don't recall them commiting and getting away with acts of terrorism as the yellow shirts did by hijacking an international airport.
