Bus from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville
Duration: 11 hours
The journey from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville takes at least 11 hours so be prepared for a long trip. If you don’t want to waste a full day on traveling you can decide to book a night bus.
However, traveling at night is less safe as roads are not well lighted and can be narrow at some parts. Also, the company that offers these night buses does not have the best reputation.
See the schedules of the two bus companies below:
|Phnom Penh Sorya||06:30-17:30|
Mekong Express is the company we recommend to book with. They are known for having a good safety record.
- Departure next to KFC, close to the hospital in the center
- Drop-off near the Phsar Leu Market, which is still a 10-minute tuk-tuk ride to the center of Sihanoukville
Virak Buntham has 2 night buses, which will save you a lot of time. However, keep in mind that this is not the safest option.
- Departure from the bus terminal at the south of the city next to the roundabout near the cinema and night market
- Drop-off at Virak Buntham Express Travel & Tours office, next to the Sihanoukville bus terminal which is a 10-15 min tuk-tuk or taxi ride to the center
Phnom Penh Sorya
Phnom Penh Sorya doesn’t have the best reputation but they provide an option for going from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville.
- Departure from Phnom Penh Sorya Office near the Night Market Street
- Drop-off at the Phnom Penh bus terminal along Independent Street
