Duration: 3.5 hours
Cost: $8.50

The only bus company operating on the route from Kep to Sihanoukville 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.
