Phnom Penh Guide

Phnom Penh International Airport

Phnom Penh International Airport is an estimated 9km or 30-50 minutes’ drive to/from the city. Upon arrival, transport is easily available and within vicinity of the lobby. Practical options for a small group or persons with more luggages include taxis from the public taxi stand at US$9 and US$7 for a Tuk-tuk. To secure your taxi, make payment at the taxi desk inside the door exiting the terminal; a driver will be allocated. Alternatives include motorcycle taxis that may be hired for US$2 to commute to the town centre.

Phnom Penh Ferry Port

Ferries connect Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and the journey is estimated to be four (4) to five (5) hours. Cost of a ticket is approximately US$25.

River ferries arriving from Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City will dock at Phnom Penh Ferry Port on Sisowath Quay Blvd or the Riverfront Road near Street 104.

Several restaurants and hotels are within short walking distance of the port. You may then board a Tuk-tuk, commonly on standby for arriving passengers.

Arrival by Bus

Although there is no centralised bus station in Phnom Penh, buses from various companies such as Phnom Penh Sorya Transport Capitol Tours and GST Express operate bus services to/from the unofficial station at southwest corner of Central Market.

There are several direct buses to Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Vientiane, Siem Reap and several other locations. Most of the long-distance buses drop off and pick up passengers in major towns such as Kompong Thom en route to Siem Reap or Pursat on the way to Battambang. Advance bookings are necessary and may be arranged by most travel agents and/or guesthouses for a small fee.
