How To Get From Kep to Sihanoukville?

When travelling from Kep to Sihanoukville, there are 2 options: you can either take a taxi or a bus. Both take about 3 hours.

We recommend booking a taxi for this route since this is the easiest and most convenient way of travelling. Expect to reach Sihanoukville within 3 hours.

The only bus company on this route, Champa Mekong, doesn’t receive good reviews. Buses are often late or break down along the route.

Kep to Sihanoukville by Taxi

Duration: 3 hours
Costs: $40

Hailing a taxi on the road or ordering one from your hotel will cost around $35-$40. Always make sure you agree on the price and drop-off point in advance.

Booking a taxi online is a little bit more expensive, but you will get better taxis and more leg space. Also, the prices are fixed so you won’t have to bother about negotiating.

You can order a 4-person taxi for $60 or book a larger 12-person taxi for $85. When travelling with a large group, you can split the fare and only pay around $7 per person for a van.

The highway is in good condition so the ride should be quite comfortable.

Kep to Sihanoukville by Bus

Duration: 3.5 hours
Costs: $8.50

The only bus company operating on this route is Champa Mekong. Unfortunately, they don’t have the same good reputation as the more well-known Cambodia Post VIP Van or Mekong Express.

The mini-van picked me up several hours later than expected and I heard similar stories from other travellers.

For this reason, we recommend booking the taxi if you don’t want to wait for hours. If you split the fare with more people, the taxi ride will also not be much more expensive.

You can find the mini-buses at the bus station in front of Kep beach. If everything goes according to the plan, they will drop you off in front of Golden Star Inn. This is still a 10-15 minute walk to the center of Sihanoukville.
