Cambodia Connections

Please note that these sectors are unguided so you may need to be patient and allow enough time during these travel days.

Don Det (Laos) – Phnom Penh (Cambodia)

Your Stray Tour Leader will book this on your behalf, just let them know when you would like to travel.

Important: Do Not Leave Valuables in your luggage or on the bus. Thefts have been reported at the border crossing stop.

Depart 9-10am, arrive approximately 10pm (dependent on travel conditions)

You will depart Don Det between 9-10am and be taken by boat to Ban Nakasang where you will wait at the bus station/toilet block area. Whilst here, grab the immigration forms off the bus organisers and fill them out. Once completed you need to hand back the forms together with your passport, a passport photo and US$29. Please note that visa processing costs can change at any time at this border, visa costs have been known to fluctuate from $28-$37.

From Ban Nakasang it is approximately 30 minutes to the border where the bus attendant will process your visas.  This should take about 30-45 minutes during which time you can stay on the bus, or hop off for the toilet or a stretch. Don’t wander too far from the bus.

Once the bus departs you will stop along the way in various places to drop off and pick up passengers and sometimes goods, you will also stop at a restaurant for lunch. You should arrive in on the outskirts of Phnom Penh around 8.30pm but it can be as late as 10pm. Once the bus arrives at the bus station there should be tuk tuks waiting to take you to the center of town. Allow about US$6 for a tuk tuk between you. 

NB: If you have a guesthouse in mind you should have an address and insist that the tuk tuk driver takes you there, otherwise they will take you to a friend’s guesthouse or one where they get commission for bringing customers.

Don Det (Laos) – Siem Reap (Cambodia)

Your Stray Tour Leader will book this on your behalf, just let them know when you would like to travel.

Depart 9-10am, arrive approximately midnight–1am.

You will have a similar experience to above, except you will need to change buses at Kamphong Thom. You will be dropped off and told to wait for the Siem Reap bus which will be on its way from Phnom Penh. It can be delayed and not there waiting for you. It may seem a bit daunting but just relax, wait and the bus will turn up!

You will arrive late at night and be dropped at the bus station on the outskirts of town. There will be tuk tuks waiting to take you to town and at this time of night it will cost you US$6 or more for a tuk tuk. As you are arriving late you should book accommodation ahead of time and advise them of your late arrival.

NB: If you have a guesthouse in mind you should have an address and insist that the tuk tuk driver takes you there, otherwise they will take you to a friend’s guesthouse or one where they get commission for bringing customers.
