How to get to and from Kompong Cham

Use the quicklinks below to jump to the desired section regarding transport in and around Kompong Cham.


Only two to three hours away from Phnom Penh, Kompong Cham makes for a quick getaway, or convenient gateway, whichever you’re looking for.

GST, Sorya and Rith Mony have regular routes all day ($4-$5), while a more comfortable, but slightly pricier, ride can be found with Cambo Express ($8), with three departures at 07:00, 13:30 and 16:45 daily.

Plenty of minivans make the journey this way too. You can either book your ticket ($5) with a travel agent, or just rock up to Central Market in the morning, or Orussey Market in the afternoon, to pick one up. Just wander around asking for Kompong Cham, and you’ll be directed to the right one.

Taxis to Kompong Cham will cost $25, unless you go for a share taxi, which will be $5.

The main bus stations in Kompong Cham are along Monivong Road. The office for Cambo Express is on Route 7, just north of Monivong.
