ABOUT TRANSPORT

Roads and streets:
NR4: Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville are connected by the National Road 4. The road has been built especially for the transport of merchandise between the capital and the port by heavy trucks and containers. It has three toll stations along.


NR41: It connects Sihanoukville with Kompot province. The road joins the province at Prey Nob district to NR4. It is in a good condition, but poor in traffic signs. Cambodia has not control over cattle and it walks freely over the roads.


NR48: It connects Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh with Koh Kong Province, at the southwest of Cambodia. The road joins also the Thai-Cambodian border. It has two ferries: at Dang Peaeng and at Andoung Tuek.


Streets in Sihanoukville downtown are in good condition. However, the traffic in the city does not follow rules and the enforcement of international norms is poor. Cambodia follows the right-hand traffic. There is an over abundance of motorbikes due to the lack of bus urban transportation and taxis. The city is considered unsafe for driving: drivers of motorbikes have to use helmet, but it is not due to passengers. Drivers use any lane of the street and it is used to see motorbikes with more than two passengers or drive by children and underage persons. In 2008 the government ordered the enforcement of the use of helmets wide the country. The fine for not wearing a helmet is US$1.00 (4000KHR) for tourists or US$0.75 (3000KHR) for locals. However you can freely ride between the hours of 11:00 and 14:00 as the police are either asleep or at lunch. You can only get fined once a day for not wearing a helmet.


Eakereak Street: The main Sihanoukville Avenue that starts in the area of the Port, goes up the Victory Hill, crosses the downtown (Makara Street) and ends at the Two Lions Square.


7 Makara Street: It is properly the center of the city, crossing the Leu Market and the Eakereak Street. A commercial place with businesses, banks, restaurants, hair saloons and many other places.


Oumuy-Oupram Street: It goes from Leu Market to Otres Beaches crossing the new Market (former bus station) and the Don Bosco Technical School and Don Bosco Hotel School.


Occheuteal Beach Street: The street along the beach, starting at the Two Lions Square. 


The city does not have an urban system of transportation (buses and taxis). Instead, there is an informal urban transportation in motor-taxis (moto-dups) and tuk-tuks. That urban system of transportation hasn't got any control from the authorities and anybody can become a motor-taxi or tuk-tuk driver in Sihanoukville (even you). As a consequence, there is no control on the prices for services. Foreign visitors are recommended to concert prices before any of those services and ask for advices from tourist agencies and hotels in order to avoid abuse.


The Kang Keng Airport is located 18 kilometres away from Sihanoukville downtown, along the NR4. Three times a week, a national flight is organized from Sihanoukville to Siem Reap.


The bus station is close to the harbour. From Sihanoukville there are busses to Phnom Penh, Seam Reap, Kampot, Kep, Koh Kong, etc… There are different bus companies offering different types of service. As bus schedule, prices and quality of service changes frequently, please ask the reception for further information. For example busses to Phnom Penh leave several times a day from early in the morning to late in the evening. Prices are US$5 - 10. The ride is 4 - 6 hours. If you inform us in advance we can arrange the bus tickets for you and we can arrange a pick up or drop off at the bus station. Busses generally leave on time and are full so it is advisable to arrange your ticket one day in advance.
