Travelling Cambodia by bus is actually quite enjoyable. It’s cost effective and efficient. The company I would trust is Giant Ibis – we used them 4 times and all times were amazing, enjoyable and comfortable. Now, this post shows pictures of our return trip from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh. We took a full sized bus from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, the mini below from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville and back and then a full sized bus from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City. All 4 trips were comfortable – you’ll like this company.
Okay, on to where we spent sometime in Sihanoukville. Before and after the ferry boat we hung out at Monkey Republic – they have 50 cent mashed potatoes and cold pop, it’s the perfect place to send emails while you’re waiting for your bus, plus it’s cool with a lot of fans.
They have power jacks in many locations so you can charge up all of your electronics before hitting the road on the bus.
This is our mini bus – it seats 15-18 and here are some key features to using this company:
- they travel on schedule
- you get to pre-book your seats
- free wifi
- free water and snack
- clean and air conditioned
- hotel pick-up and drop-off
Basically, they are a luxury. Also, it beats going to the airport and checking in through security.
See those two seats up front – those are ours! We sat in the front every time (we pre-booked those seats) since we didn’t want any motion sickness at all. The view from there was awesome, too. We saw so much of Cambodia travelling by bus. Unforgettable.
This place is where we stopped to and from Sihanoukville – great pastries and ice cream. Treat yourself!
That’s me, enjoying mashed potatoes at Monkey Republic. Oh, they were so good!
Check out the Giant Ibis website and be sure to think about travelling Cambodia by bus – we loved it and would highly suggest it. Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you again soon.
