Travelling out and about Phnom Penh
There are several ways to travel from Phnom Penh to the provinces even to the neighboring countries. By choosing a few select destinations, as opposed to traveling all over Cambodia in order to see and do everything, you will save money and time. Consider the logistics of your trip. It takes a lot of time to travel and settle down at your destination.
Getting Around Cambodia
Tuktuk are the most common means of transportation in Cambodia. It is always advisable to negotiate the price in advance. Prices never go lower than 1$. A 15-minute ride normally costs $2.00 (8000Rs). Rates usually gets high at night time and the more people you get to board in the tuktuk.
Busses are the most common means of transportation to the different provinces. Bus departs every hour from Phnom Penh. During regular days, some bus companies offer complimentary pick-ups from the hotel. The rates range from:
Metered taxis are not so popular in Cambodia. You need to pre book them in advance. The flag rate normally is $1.00US (4,000Rs) for the first 1.2km., the succeeding km will be added $0.60 (2.500 riels) more. Most travelers prefer to use tuktuks more than taxis for short distance travels. Airport taxis charge 12USD from the airport to the hotel.
PRIVATE RENT CAR (Include Driver)
You may also take a boat to Siem Reap province. The sceneries are more interesting and engaging (get your sun block ready). The trip takes about 6-hours and normally runs only from April to August when the water is high enough. The rate is 35 USD, and tour boats are always available at the river port. They normally depart in the afternoon around 5PM. The cost is normally 15 USD. Tour boats can also be rented privately. You may ask our front desk for more information.
