I really liked the transportation within Cambodia. The transportation ranges between buses to taxis. And the best part is they accept payment in USD or Cambodian Riel or both.
Transportation between the Cambodian cities
I took the Giant Ibis buses to travel between the cities – Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Their booking was very simple and it was online. The process was to select the route, date and number of passengers and to make the payment using a credit or debit card.
The buses are completely safe and one can also book the sleeper seats for the night journey.
Note: I had booked them even before I landed in Cambodia.
Transportation within the city
The best way to travel within the city is Tuk Tuk. They are cheap, fast and most importantly fun. As an example, I paid only USD 7 for a Tuk Tuk ride for two people from Phnom Penh city to Phnom Penh International Airport – Yes, it’s that cheap! They accept only cash and they do accept USD.
Tip: Haggle with the Tuk Tuk driver and you sometimes end up paying half the price he/she asked for.
Just a word of caution for taking a Tuk Tuk in Angkor Wat – Angkor Wat is a very huge complex with lots of temples and hence it can get a bit uncomfortable riding the Tuk Tuk. So, when my mother and I visited the Angkor Wat, we took a bus tour and we were seated comfortably in the bus.
