Cambodian Transport

Posted by PrawnFingers on 7/11/2008 at 22:27

Hey,

Just need some up-to-date info on transport options in Cambodia. I am hoping to go and a couple of weeks.

My problem is that I have a medical problem where I get very dehydrated and drink around 10L a day and so need the toilet about every 2-3 hours. From what I have heard and read there are no toilets on the buses and no regular stops. Are there minibuses now between the main destinations? How often do the buses stop in towns?

Flying is not an option as budget is ultra tight.

Thanks

Some buses, notably Mekong Express, have toilets on board. Other buses stop all the time -- and I mean all the time -- I'm sure Khmers have a mean bladder size about a quarter the size of mine.

Other options -- there are also minibus -- and share taxi -- services between most major towns.

How do I get from Phom Penh airport to Sihanoukville?

Bus, taxi?

How long does it take? What is the price I should expect to pay?

Mekong Express would definatley be my recommendation although more expensive at $11 from PP to Siem Reap than the widely used Sorya which was $7.

Sorya do stop regularly to pick up locals on route.
