Passenger reviews out of total 6,824 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Staff were unhelpful when they dropped us off late and told us there would be a ferry waiting for us at the port and then turned around and said the ferry was full, got on the bus and left us.

Bus was fairly clean and comfortable. Bus drivers were very bad even by Cambodia standards: driving on the entire road, not paying attention to the road, honking every 2 nanoseconds, speaking loudly between them and having a picnic in front of the bus while driving

We booked through 12go.asia the day before our trip. When we game to the station, they told us that the van was full and that they had not seen our booking. We got to join the van that were leaving one hour later, so that turned out fine (just a little bit annoying). The drive was supposed to take four hours, but we ended up spenning over six hours on the road. We were prepared for that because we had read the reviews. Else than that everything was ok. Comfortable seets and ok roads.

the bus makes the stop at a decent and very good place to eat. The wifi worked the whole trip, seat ok. The guide is very polite. (Can improve) the final stop is in front of a building construction and those responsible for the luggage simply throw them our bags on the ground, leaving them dirty

Departure was half an hour late and as soon as we left, the staff told us that the ride would certainly take 6 hours instead of the 5.5 hours that was announced on the ticket. Keep some spare time in your schedule. Bus was relatively comfy: more than enough legroom and Wi-Fi + usb sockets on-board. Points for improvement: it would be nice if the toilet had water to flush it, and since they are clearly aiming at tourists, it would be great if they had western sizes backrests for the seats.

Not the best choice... The bus was quite new, and that’s when the pros end. The departure place had no place to wait and nobody there speaks English but the lady in charge of exchange the voucher to the actual ticket (that was a peace of paper wrote down your seat number in pen) The biggest problem was that, because they also use the bus as cargo, they filled the luggage area with a lot of boxes prior to the actual luggage, so lots of passengers had to take their bags with them, to their beds, where you wouldn’t fit if you are over 1,60m tall. I don’t think it’s the worst choice, but I wouldn’t repeat it. Passengers where most locals, and if it’s well enough for them, the company doesn’t need to change. Plus, the trip last 5 hours top, so there’s no worth in taking a sleeping bus, unless you were trying to save a hotel night.

A bit crazy ride through Cambodia. To be honest we feared if we would make it safely with all the overtakings from the driver that were REALLY close. + he dropped us of at a local gas station which was clearly a deal with local tuktuk drivers as they were our only option for transfer to our accomodations. In the middle of the night in Cambodia. Of course they ripped us of. Not something I would recommend.

The bus is comfortable and nice. Free water bottle and snack is provided. There are two bathroom breaks and one lunch break. Bad thing is that the ticket said the bus should be in Sihanoukville at 12.30 when leaving from Phnom Penh at 8.00. This is however impossible. We arrived around 14.30. Some people had booked further boat rides which they missed because of this. Therefore this should be corrected to the tickets.

The bus departed on time, but arrived with 2:30 hours delay. Of this delay time, I would say 1:30 is drivers fault because he made detours to pick up and drop off locals. Besides this, the bus is confortable, the ac works well, and the ride was pleasant. The delay was expected. This is Cambodia..

Compared to the other Giant Ibis busses I have used I was thoroughly disappointed in this service: There was no wifi; Some USB charging points did not work, those that did had insufficient power to actually charge anything (my phone battery would decrease whilst plugged in and not in use); and finally, it ran roughly two hours behind the advertised arrival time. Whilst bus delays are to be expected in se asia, I felt that approximately half of this time was an unecessary delay as it was spent at a lunch stop while other Giant Ibis services I have used supplied lunch on the move. This delay seems to be a regular occurence according to the staff and the company should be transparent about this and the timetable should make this obvious for the service that the customer is buying.

Ride was comfy and relaxed. We were unfortunate that many passengers were delayed which caused an immediate delay for the bus. In the end we arrived at 14:30 instead of the announced 12:30, which was a pity. However, these things can happen and it's nice of the Ibis crew that they make sure that everyone with a ticket can enjoy the ride.
