sihanoukville Travel Guide :

Sihanoukville

Get in

Sihanoukville

By plane

There is a small airport a few miles out of town but there seems to be no regular flight services in the moment.

Sihanoukville

By car

  • From Phnom Penh. National route 4 from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville is one of Cambodia's best. There is a regular bus service from Phnom Penh which takes about 4 hours at a cost of 3-4 US$. Busses leave at Phnom Penh Central Market.
  • From the Thai border (Hat Lek/ Koh Kong). There is a road to the Thai border crossing which is often classified as a all season road. But the condition depends heavily on the weather so keep care especially in the rainy season. In December 2004 only the first part was tarred, while the most was gravel. There is a minibus service on this road (about 6-8 US$), but vans are often cramped and the trip is not the most comfortable. On the pro-side the trip offers in some parts a wonderful scenery.
Sihanoukville

By boat

There is a regular boat service to Koh Kong and (vice versa) from where it is easy to go on to the Thai border by minibus or moto. In the moment there is one boat daily from Sihanoukville. The price for the boat ticket is 12 US$.

Sihanoukville

By train

A train leaves Sihnaoukville to Phnom Penh every other day but the schedules don`t seem to be very reliable. And it`s a long and not very comfortable way to travel in Cambodia by train.
