What is the best way to travel around Cambodia?

Wondering about getting around Cambodia? Cambodia feels like a bit of a hidden gem in Southeast Asia. While it’s still a pretty popular tourist destination, with spectacular temples, beautiful islands and beaches, and a rich cultural heritage, Cambodia’s a place you won’t want to miss.

While the bustle of the big cities might be the country’s main attractions, my favorite places in Cambodia are actually the smaller towns and villages. The most popular form of transport for most travelers, connecting all major towns and cities have many ways and safely. Travelers feel comfortable and truth to driver, especially it isn’t the highest price. Everyone can afford and easy to communication, they can guide you around the city or villages directly.

1. Bicycle

Cambodia is a great country for experienced cyclists to explore. A mountain bike is the recommended set of wheels thanks to the notorious state of the roads. Most roads have a flat unpaved trail along the side, which is useful for cyclists, especially in Siem Reap cycling is the most popular traveling for tourism drive along Angkor Temple with warm and cold weather. Top bikes, safety equipment and authentic spare parts are now readily available in Phnom Penh at very reasonable prices.

2. Car and Motorcycle

Car and motorcycle rental are comparatively cheap in Cambodia and many visitors rent a car or bike for greater flexibility to visit out-of-the-way places and to stop when they choose. Almost all car rental in Cambodia includes a driver, although self-drive rentals are also available in Phnom Penh.

3. Train

Mothballed for years, Cambodia’s rail system has been rehabilitated in recent years and limited passenger services resumed in 2016 through national carrier Royal Railway. Currently the only service links Phnom Penh with Sihanoukville via Kampot, with departures on weekend mornings. Plans call for plugging the Cambodian line into the Trans-Asian Railway network, which will link Singapore and China, but connecting Phnom Penh with Ho Chi Minh City via a Mekong bridge will take a few years yet. The 385km northwestern line, which links Phnom Penh with Pursat and Battambang and was built before WWII, is next in line to open. Train is the best atmosphere for relaxing on your holiday.

4. Bus

These days most of the major roads are sealed, so the bus journeys are relatively short, with a trip between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap taking less than six hours.

There are also international routes going from Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, and Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, and from Phnom Penh to Bangkok, to the Laos border via Strung Treng, and to the Thai border via Poipet. Most buses are air-conditioned, often to an extreme, so bring a sweater as well. Some buses do have bathrooms on board. Mostly the price is acceptable for tourism and Cambodia residents.
