I traveled from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh with Giant Ibis, and I was very impressed with how professional the staff and services were. The bus itself is very comfortable with air conditioning, ample leg room, and reclining cushioned seats. Almost all staff speak English, and during the trip there were announcements communicating when stops would occur and how long the break would be. Rest stops were also comfortable with clean Western bathrooms. They even facilitated ordering lunch on the bus prior to the rest stop to maximize time. They switched busses more than halfway through as the AC was not working properly, and the only point of feedback I have about this process would be to have passengers verify their luggage was adequately been transferred as some local passengers remained on the original bus to go to a different destination. I highly recommend Giant Ibis and would gladly travel with them again the next time I find myself in Southeast Asia. They are also incredibly responsive via facebook messenger.

You get what you pay: comfortable, spacious, but old bus. The driver was good and scheduled times were kept. The travel compagnions were listening to loud music, but nothing to worry about. Good value for your money.

Cambotra Express is apparently a new company (March-22), and the location you get for the bus station in Siem Reap is not correct. The bus station is on the main road - type in Larryta Express (the neighbor bus company) and you will be close. Other than nearly not finding the bus station, the seats were tiny and we arrived to PP thirty minutes later than scheduled. There were 3 stops, 2 short ones for bathroom breaks and a 30 minutes for lunch stop.

Purchased the tickets through this company as they state it has sockets to charge phones and WiFi .. So once on board we were told the sockets are not working . Then told that there was no WiFi as issue with SIM card !! We would have chosen a different company if we had of known this .

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.
