There are many flights from Bangkok in Thailand to Phnom Penh in Cambodia. It is easy and comfortable if you have already booked the connecting flight to Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville in your home country.

Once in Phnom Penh, there are numerous AC buses that run to Sihanoukville – every hour for most of the day. The Trip takes approximately 6 hours and costs 9-10 USD. The main bus companies are Sorya Transport and Capitol. A private taxi (departure Phsar Thmey) takes 4 to 5, hours and costs 70 USD.

If you travel from Bangkok you will need to book your trip at a Bangkok travel agency. The bus ticket will cost around 30 USD from Bangkok to Sihanoukville.

The trip from Koh Kong passes the Cardamom Mountains which are very beautiful. So day-time is recommended. But you might want to watch Ankor Wat first. Then, of course, the whole trip goes over Siem Riep and from there to Sihanoukville.

Whichever way you travel either from Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville ask the busdriver to let you out in Ou Chamnar (Bat Kokir).

From there it is easy to hire a moto (3 USD) to take you to Koh Kchhang Fishing Village and our boat pier there.
