The bus had overbooking, and a 30 minuts delayed and the because of the overbooking we had to wait 30 minuts to solve the problem, one passenger volunteered that's gonna take the fold up chair and even we did it go in time we stopped for a 30 minut lunch time and arrived and 1h later. Thei said that she is gonna get 50% of the ticket se got 5$ and the ticket was 15$. But the driver was driving very calm and safe.

Comfortable bus drive, spacious seats, just the right amount of stops (2x short toilet break, 1x 30min lunch break), bus left on time and arrived earlier than expected in Sihanoukville, close to the pier.

The journey was ok, we left pretty much on time and arrived around expected time. The seats are not comfy, but I guess you get what you pay for. No complains.
