I do not want to accuse anyone but somewhere on this journey from my backpack lost my headscarf and travel headrest. I would advise you to look more closely at the bus surroundings when leaving Siem Reap and after arriving in Phnom Penh. A lot of unneeded people are hanging around there. Everything is fine after this incident.

I was 1 hour earlier and asked if I could go with the bus that was coing in 10 minutes, they changed the ticket so I could take that bus!

Bus Minibus 12, Virak Buntham Express, Mar 16, 2020
Journey was quick and bus comfortable, but not very relaxing due to the eratic driving of the bus driver who was dangerous and visibly suffered from road rage!

Comfortable ride. Easy to book and travel from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh. Good stopping points and a good driver. Hostess was nice and clear on her instructions.

Overall, the service and experience was very good...the windows were a little dirty and I wasn't able to enjoy the views as much as I would have liked, but it was still a great experience. I also appreciated having someone on board who was there to attend to guests' needs.

Bus was comfortable with good leg room, driver was safe and ran to the timetable ok. Got a bit tedious by the afternoon with the monotonous scenery and sitting down all day. They provided a fried rice snack at the border and stopped at a roadside eatery/toilet in the afternoon. Overall worth the money if you have the time.

Sat in a seat next to the driver and someone else to my right. No leg room, very uncomfortable. Don’t think it was even meant to be a seat. Luckily got to move halfway through, but not enjoyable.
