Travel from Sihanoukville to Mondulkiri can easily be done in one day using two minivans with a change at Phnom Penh. In only one day you can move from the beaches of western Cambodia to the hills and forests of eastern Cambodia.
We recommend you catch an early minivan from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh. If you use a company that also does the trip from Phnom Penh to Mondulkiri you wont need to change bus stations in Phnom Penh. Virak Buntham is one such company.
