Giant Ibis bus from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap

Last weekend, we decided to take a getaway weekend trip to Siem Reap.   Thinking about logistics, we started to look for ways to get from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and discovered that Giant Ibis was our best option.

Unlike other bus services like Mekong Express or Soriya Express running from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, the Giant Ibis had what it takes to defy the misunderstanding of many travelers who have taken poor quality bus transfers in Cambodia.   Upon arrival to the Giant Ibis Phnom Penh station, located next to the Phnom Penh Night Market, we were greeted by our bus crew assistant, Maley.    Maley welcomed us with a big smile and helped us with our luggages immediately.  While we waited for other travelers to arrive, Maley had already turned on the AC and entertained us with a movie.   What surprised us most was the array of movie selections to choose from.   Each reclined seat came with its own cup holder, a speech control on/off switch that was perfect for your own personal selection, and plenty of leg room, almost as spacious as the cabin seat from the United Airline flight leaving Frankfurt to NYC.

One and half hours into the trip, we stopped in Skun town for a 10 min restroom break.   Our 30 minute lunch was in Kompong Thom province at a local restaurant.  Shortly after, the bus driver was switched.  This showed that Giant Ibis really took safety very highly and did not allow the same driver in the driver seat for the entire six hour ride.  Two movies later we arrived at Siem Reap bus station.

Entertainment and comfortable seats made the trip so enjoyable and relaxing that our six hour trip felt unexpectedly shorter.

I would recommend other travelers to select Giant Ibis bus service as a preferred choice for the transfer from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and vice versa.  Do try to book your seat as early as possible from your departure date as the seat availability is limited.   And when you have a chance to take the Giant Ibis, we would love to hear your story.  Please feel free to share your experience by writing to us at [email protected]
