PP to SR time

Can anyone share how long it will take to get from PP to SR (on Mekong Express)? I searched the forum, but cannot find the specific on the duration of the bus ride. We plan on taking the early morning bus (7am, I believe), and want to know what time we will get into SR.

should be there by lunch time, times can be quite hard to say as it can vary,esp during rainy season, somewhere between 4-6 hrs

One other question, from PP to SR, which side of the bus should we sit to get the most out of the view?

On the right you'll see villages and vegetation. On the left, you'll see all the things the bus driver just narrowly avoided running over.

I'm kidding: I don't think it matters which side you're on, but do sit back a few seats from the front if you get a choice; the honking gets annoying after a while....

7am bus should get you into SR around lunch time. We chose the RHS of the bus and that was good.

Note the Mekong Express bus terminal is now down Sisowath Quay by the river. I think some local references show it at another location.

Info is correct,driving a car takes four hours so the bus should be around five hours.

Which side of the bus is only important if one wants to avoid the sun.
