How To Get From Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville?
You have 4 options when travelling from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. You can take a bus for 5.5 hours, a taxi for 4 hours, a train for 7 hours, or a plane for 35 minutes.
The bus gets you to Sihanoukville in about 5.5 hours and is cheaper than taking the taxi. There is also one bus company that drops you off next to the main street in Sihanoukville.
The taxi is a good alternative if you are travelling in a group or want to be dropped off right at your hotel. Taxi rates start at $45.
There are some pretty sights to see along the train route. However, it takes several hours more than the bus or taxi and requires another 20min ride from the station to the center.
Flying is by far the fastest option. The only trade-off is booking a flight for this route is quite expensive especially during the peak season.
