Phnom Penh to Koh Kong

I have been trying to find a way to get from Phnom Penh to Koh Kong. All i can find is the bus company Virak Buntham but I have heard really bad things about them. Was wondering if anyone could suggest a different company or different form of transport????

Thanks.

Hi Daniel O

We're looking at Sihanoukville to Koh Kong in October and same here, only seem to be getting Virak Buntham with bad reports but i think they mostly relate to the night buses. Day buses might be ok.

Can anyone else proffer any other info about this? I've check Canby which states only Virak Buntham.

Cheers

I'm in PP now and have spoken with staff. Local buses have terrible history. Taxi.

Although I would never use night buses in Cambodia,no matter what the company,the day buses are a lot safer,and I've traveled on them many times.AFAIK the Phnom Penh to Koh Kong route is served by Virak Buntham, Rith Mony and Paramount Angkor,there might be others as well.

Be careful and don't say wrong words.

The bus are dangerous.

Some weeks before, the Ministry of Transports warned 4 bus companies for their numbers of accident and deaths they are involved which is higher than previous year !

Rith Mony, Paramount, Angkor Express, Capitol and Sorya.

I'm going to give PP Sorya bus line a try later this week; none of the top of the line bus companies go to Koh Kong.

i traveled phnom penh to koh kong last November and had no problems. i think two food/ toilet stops and several roadside toilet stops as called for by passengers. cant recall the bus co.name.

i would always prefer to travel by bus than car. the bigger the bus the better!

we will be doing the same trip tomorrow with virak so will find out soon enough how it goes.

the scenery is fantastic the closer you get to koh kong.

koh kong is not such a nice place though...couldnt wait to move on.
