Budget Transport Between Bangkok and Siem Reap
We can get you there on the cheap!
So why fly when you can drive?
There are many ways to travel either way between Bangkok (or other points in Thailand via Bangkok) and Siem Reap. You can choose between flying, gypsy vans from Bangkok to the border, or even by bus. We offer something better--a unique transportation service that is fast, comfortable, door-to-door, and the best value for money.
First, let's explore your options:
Flying is the most expensive way to travel. There are low cost airlines, of course. However, there are strict limits on luggage. In some cases you must even pay for both checked and carry-on luggage.
There are several buses between BKK and SR. Cost is lower than flying, but travel time is 9+ hours each way. Departure times are fixed, allowing no flexibility. You have to find your own way to the departure point in a big, complicated city. Better pack a lunch and bottled water! Some buses are notoriously late and often have mechanical problems.
There are "gypsy" vans between Bangkok and the Arayparathet border crossing. They are cheap, but cramped and run on fixed departure schedules. Once you get to the border you are on your own to navigate Thai and Cambodian formalities spread over about 1km. You need to put your luggage in the hands of a porter, who will meet you when you officially enter Cambodia. Problem is, the area outside immigration is very chaotic and choked with traffic. When you reach the Cambodian side you also have to compete for a taxi to Siem Reap. Good luck!
We Have a Better Option!
Our transportation service between Bangkok and SiemReap is door to door. You can choose a departure time, as long as itis practical. We offer full service all the way, including lunch and VIP handling at the border, which makes it the best value for money.
We pick you up at your hotel or guesthouse in either Bangkok or Siem Reap and transport you to the Aranyaprathet/Poipet border crossing. A member of our staff meets you there and explains border-crossing procedures. We will have one or more porters ready to take your luggage. (You have to pay their small fee in cash.) We use these people regularly and we know they are honest and reliable. We monitor the progress of your luggage as it crosses and know where it is at all times because we will be in contact with them every few minutes.
Once you exit Thai immigration our staff member will be waiting to assist you through the maze on the Cambodian side. We have specially-authorized access to the border area to do this so our staff can move freely. We assist you with a Cambodian Visa on Arrival if you need one, then see you through immigration. By now, your luggage will already be in our private vehicle and you can depart on the final leg of your journey. If necessary we can make a beer stop before you leave Poipet.
Planning to relocate to Cambodia? We have you covered there, too. Why spend thousands of dollars to send your household goods by ship when we can help you do it on the cheap!
