Good to know
The history of Phnom Penh is rooted in antiquated mysticism which led to the city being called as the “Pearl of Asia”. The city mixes French and Chinese style with historical Cambodian design to create a unique space. Monsoon season (May to November) maybe bring difficulties to travellers so be sure to visit in the other half of the year. It is important to visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum to learn about the Khmer Rouge regime. Gold roofs occupy almost every temple (most importantly, the Royal Palace) giving Phnom Penh regality that probably doesn’t exist anywhere else.

Why did you sent us email about Cambodia Vietnam border closed? Our schedule is suppose to leave at 13:30 but we have to leave at 12:30pm. Everything was rushed and very stressful.

Bus to Phnom Phenn
The guide didn't understand that I was going to Phnom Phenn and returning to Saigon by plane and getting a visa on arrival at the airport. Although I showed him my letter of invitation from Immigration department and plane ticket on Qatar airlines. He left me with others returning to Saigon after getting their visa stamped. Eventually he understood what I was doing and had to go my motorcycle from the boarder to the restaurants where the bus was stopped for passengers to eat and have comfort break... I had 5 minutes to go to WC and get a cold drink. Not enough time to eat.

大幅な遅延: Significant delay
待機場所で待っていてもバスが現れず…カスタマーサービスに連絡を取ってしばらくしたら3時間バスが遅れていることが発覚。バス会社に行き、伝えると、バスではなくバンに乗らされ、別のバス停へ。結局、バスは来たのかわかりません。予約したのはスリーピングバスだが、明らかに普通のバス。何に乗ったのかはわからなかったがとりあえずプノンペン にはつきました。しかし、19時すぎに着く予定だったのでお昼しか食べてなく夜ご飯は持っていなくて、着いたのは結局22時すぎ。お金もなくて大変でした。

Normal trip
It was ok. The guides were ok at the beggining... but after crossing the borders, they didn't look very happy. They kept 5 dollars for everyone of us. Don't think is fair

Van was great, nice seats
Van was great, nice seats and very cold. Driver just left me at the border, apparently I was denied entry. Would have been nice if he spent a few moments to tell me what had happened. Some local came and told me.

An ok ride across the border!!
Nice staff, and a comfy journey but a delayed journey and the border crossing took a long time! Don’t use if you want more time in your destination!
