Traveler reviews for Mekong Express
The trip was posted to be 3 hours. It took 2 to get out of Phnom Penh. The driver was the most dangerous driver I have ever encountered. Pouring rain, bad roads, he is racing to complete the drive.
Pickup from our hostel didn’t arrive so had to get a tuktuk to terminal. When arrived at Sihanoukville told they hadn’t booked our boat ticket. So missed the 2pm boat until it was sorted and got the 4pm one. Tried to make us pay extra for tuktuk to port.
VIP bus was old and noisy, the inside needed some cleaning, and the seats were worn out (my seat's recline button was broken but seatbelt was okay). AC was working well for the duration of the trip from Battambang to Siem Reap making the trip bearabable.
We took so much longer than expected —4 hours..
The bus left Phnom Penh 35 minutes late. And arrived more than 1,5 hour late to Battambang.
Driver was very good and careful
