Boring long bus journeys in Southeast Asia are unlikely to be the most fun part of traveling in the region. Recently, I took Giant Ibis from Saigon to Phnom Penh. The journey takes around seven to eight hours, depending on heavy traffic and long queues at the border crossing.Please note that there is NOT a toilet on board!! There is a light snack served FREE of charge and a bottle of water. The cost of a one way ticket is $18. A return ticket costs $36.

There’s a stop between on the Cambodian border at a restaurant and also a new duty-free complex where you can buy cheap drink and cigarettes. I saw cartons of local cigarettes for only $2!! You can pay in US$ for your food at the restaurant.

Cambodian Tourist Visa
The tourist visa (T class) is best for those who know they will be staying 30 days or less.
The 30-day tourist visa is available to travellers in advance or on arrival (for most nationalities) for a cost of $30. The tourist visa is single entry only, and can be renewed once for an additional 30 days for a fee of $45. After that, tourist visa holders must leave Cambodia and come back and obtain a new visa. If you are planning on staying in Cambodia, don’t bother with a tourist visa and start with an ordinary visa instead.

Once you have your first 30-day ordinary visa for Cambodia, you can extend it from inside the country for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. It’s advisable to extend it for 6 or 12 months, as these visa types are multiple-entry. The 1- and 3-month ordinary visas are single-entry only, meaning that if you leave for a weekend trip to Vietnam, you’ll need to get a new Cambodian visa when you return.

E Visa
For anyone who is considering staying in Cambodia for an extended period of time, the ordinary visa (E class) is the best option. This visa used to be called the business visa but is now called the normal or ordinary visa. It is also valid for 30 days and costs $35. The difference between the ordinary visa and the tourist visa is that the ordinary one can be extended indefinitely. Be aware that although the “ordinary” visa is often called a “business visa,” it does not confer the right to work in Cambodia. In order to be legally employed, you will need a Cambodia work permit, but you do not need a work permit to get a visa.

Have a wonderful trip and please give me a ”thumbs up” if you liked the video.

Make sure when you leave Vietnam on an E Visa you have the evisa paper when you downloaded the evisa or the Nazi viet immigration officers will not let you leave Vietnam. Luckily I still had them in my phone but not before the wankers took US money off me and my wife and two kids before allowing us to leave. They said if I didn't have the piece of paper (even though the Visa stsmp is in your passport) I would have to go back to Saigon.Arsewipes.

UPDATE: May 2019. If you need to phone the train station for more information, the number is: 093854463.

Did you know that there is a TRAIN SERVICE from Phnom Penh International Airport to Central Train Station by train? The price of a one-way ticket is $2.50 and worth it. The service starts at 05.30 (I'm guessing from Phnom Penh) and takes around 30 minutes or so. There is only one train and one track! The 30 minute journey, which depends on traffic (cars and people on the tracks!) and the amount of near misses, will slowly make its way though some cool scenery, including villages and plenty of local people. The train station is located in the airport.
