It's been here for decades
and it's running already!
In Kampot ..... Just outside of town, near the river. It's about a 5 minute ride into town by car, tuk tuk or motorcycle.
In Phnom Penh ...... Downtown.. by the Canadian Embassy. Look for the two tallest buildings in the land, and you're there.
There's no public transport to or from the train stations (that we know of).
You'll probably want to get a car, tuk tuk or motodup (motorcycle taxi) to the station or your final destination.
The train also stops at Takeo, Cambodia, and at the 2 stops between Phnom Penh and SihanoukVille, you can get off the train for about 5 to 10 minutes. There are bathrooms on every tain car.
You can book on-line or by phone at:
Note: if you see "Protahlang" on the Royal Railways website, we think this means SihanoukVille.
The ride is slow and enjoyable. From SihanoukVille to Kampot, the train is fairly empty. Lots more passengers get on at Kampot though.
There may be working Wi-Fi on the train.
If you wander up front or to the back, you may find some food or drinks for sale.
You can also take your vehicle on the train.
