We suggest booking with one of the three well-known bus operators for this route – Cambodia Post VIP Van, Bayon VIP or Mekong Express.
Tickets with Mekong Express are slightly more expensive, but it is the most trusted and secure transport operator in Cambodia and is known for their good service.
Roads are paved and in a generally good condition, but accidents still happen from time to time. The table below shows our recommended bus companies and their respective schedules. However, there are other companies you can also book with. Fares start at $8.
If these rates are too expensive for you, you can also opt for rideshare. You can find one just along Boeung Chhouk Market on National Road 5. Ride-sharing costs $10 per seat. Bear in mind that you may have to wait until all seats are filled.
Sla Boutique hostel is located just around the corner from the Royal Palace and there are many street food stalls nearby. The staff are very helpful and willing to arrange joint rides for guests to S21 or the Killing Fields. In the dorms, curtains and lockers are provided for extra privacy.
