Cambodia is a developing country which had gone through the civil war that had torn down the country for few decades. Fortunately, the country has now recovered. If you look at Cambodia’s roads, you’ll see nearly all kind of vehicles: cars, motorbikes, buses, and other means of transportation that may not exist in your country such as cyclo (tricycle bike) and remork. Beware, in Cambodia, everyone drive on the right. Motorbikes are the most common vehicles on the streets not only because they are the cheapest type of private transportation but also the fastest. Most of Cambodian families has at least one motorbike. In city like Phnom Penh, the streets is usually very crowded during the rush hour from 7am to 8am and 5pm to 7pm so plan some extra time for your commune.
The roads that lead from Phnom Penh to other parts of the country are in a good condition. However, most of the time they are crowded because the roads are covered mostly by villages. This may slow down your travel but good thing is you never have to worry even if your bus is broken down along the road. Locals will always offer you help and lift your destination.
There are a few means of transportation in Cambodia. For short-distance travels, you can find a motodup (motor taxi) or remork. The two are the most common and the cheapest. Another local way of transportation is a cyclo (tricycle bike). Due to its low speed, cyclo is a perfect way of transportation for sigh-seing and exploring small hidden places within the city. A Lory, bamboo train, is a very popular mean of transportation in Battambang province.
For long-distance travels, buses are the most popular mean of reach your destination. The cost of the bus ticket varies according to the destination and the time of the year. During the national holidays, the price of the bus ticket nearly doubles. The usual bus fare from Phnom Penh to Siem reap is $6
