EXPRESS MINIVAN

To travel from Sihanoukville you will first need to catch a minivan to Phnom Penh and then change to catch another minivan to Sen Monorom.  Please book both of these trips separately.

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.

Catch the minivan to Snoul (on the way to Phnom Penh). Make sure the minivan driver knows you are getting out at Snoul.  From Snoul you take a motorbike to the border. This takes 15 minutes and costs around $5. When you cross the border there are motorbike taxis about 50 metres on your left.  You have to take this motorbike (20 kilometres) to Loc Ninh bus station.  Don’t let them drop you off before you make it to the bus station.   Find the local bus with Saigon written in the window.  This local bus takes 3 hours to Ho Chi Minh City (approx. $7).  You will also find taxis here.  Make sure you have a valid Vietnamese visa and buy some Vietnamese currency (Dong) in advance.
