Traveling around Cambodia? Or planning an itinerary? Don't know which countries Cambodia borders to?

I provide you with maps of the whole country! In addition to city maps of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

Along with maps -- you'll also get information on duration of journeys between Phnom Penh and other cities, bus companies and other important information about bus tickets, as well as duration of trips between Siem Reap and cities in Cambodia.

Bus is the most common way to travel in Cambodia, and that's why I'm going to focus on this.

Now here are Google and Bing maps of Cambodia.

All the maps are interactive!

How and when to buy bus tickets

You can either purchase a ticket through:

A) The bus company - track down the nearest office of the bus companies mentioned above

B) Buy bus tickets through a travel agent (the travel agents and guesthouses cooperate with the various bus companies)

C) Get your bus tickets through the guesthouse you're staying at

When should you buy bus tickets: There are several departures during the day to most cities in Cambodia. Of course, if you're planning on traveling during holidays or right before an important festival begins, you should purchase your ticket as soon as you know when you want to leave.

There are less departures for long-distance destinations, for example from Phnom Penh/Sihanoukville to Saigon, or from Siem Reap to Stung Treng/Ban Lung/Sen Monorom.

In this Cambodia Map: Tonle Sap Lake is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, and is of major importance to Cambodia.

From Cambodia to Vietnam by Bus

There are buses leaving for Saigon from cities like Phnom Penh (6 hours) and Sihanoukville.

From Sihanoukville, with Sorya Transport, the bus leaves at 07.15 am (saw this time schedule at a poster in Sihanoukville in April 2010).

From Phnom Penh (Sorya Transport), the buses leave at 06:45 am, 08:30 am, 11:30 am, 13:30 pm and 14:30 pm.

Siem Reap
Duration of Journeys

The Angkor town is located near Tonle Sap Lake.

With shared taxi it takes 4 hours to get to border town of Poipet (if crossing the border to Thailand). Otherwise it takes 8 hours by bus minus the delay.

When I traveled in Cambodia in April 2010, between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, the road was completely asphalt-covered compared to previous years.

Boat from Siem Reap to Battambang takes about 8-12 hours depending on the season (water level), type of boat and the boat drivers. By taxi you can get to Battambang in 2-3 hours, and by bus it takes 4 hours.

From Siem Reap to Anlong Veng: 2,5 hours. From downtown Siem Reap to Angkor park: 10-15 minutes

Siem Reap to Stung Treng (if going to Laos) -- 12 hours. The last time I took this route it stopped by Phnom Penh (2007).
