I was a little worried what the Hang Chau Express Boat was going to be like but it was great! It has bus like comfy seats. Had a western washroom on board that was very clean. They gave out snacks and water before getting onboard. They have stage for large bags under the boat. There was also enough room for about 10-12 people to sit outside under the cover area that had bench seats. You also can smoke at the back outside part. We sat at the back the whole time. We really enjoyed the views and taking pictures along the way. There are 2 different size boats one holds about 35 people the other is about 60. Ours was not full so you could move comfortably. There is windows in the main cabin which were open which gave a nice breeze. If it was full I could see it being a bit claustrophobic inside. The ride was about 6.5 hour. There was so many boats, people fishing and so on to see. Plus stunning views the whole trip. You have to stop and get off at both Border crossings to have your passports check. Both stops had a booth set up to make small snack purchases. Both crossings were really quick and easy. Best way to cross the border!

Booked easily online through Baolau for Hang Chau Tourist speedboat. In Châu Doc, Murray from Murray Guesthouse easily made phone call and organised free pick up on cyclo for couple minute ride to boat. It was fun. The staff on speedboat were great. They effortlessly organised everything to do with paperwork for visas. Bring blue pen to make it easier. Immigration at both Vietnam exit, and Cambodia entry was speedy and easy. Ensure you only have crisp, clean USD notes. $30 for visa, and $5.00 for staff to fully assist us. There is no ATM or card facilities. We didn’t bring a photo, no problem, they scan passport photo. Didn’t cost extra. Other reviews mentioned $2 fee, ours didn’t charge us. The boat staff take care of everything. Totally worth it. They give you a little snack bag with cake, crackers bananas and a cold water. There’s wifi on the boat if you need it. Was most enjoyable travel. Definitely recommend.

Very pleased with the service from Hang Châu. Picked up promptly for the early boat and taken directly to boarding point. Very comfortable boat with clean toilet facilities. Visa preparation done efficiently with no worries at all. You are instructed carefully with what to do when - need to get off the boat twice - once to exit Vietnam and once to enter Cambodia (that is, coming from Châu Doc to PP). Highly recommend

We did the Hangchau Express boat in Nov 2019. Car picked up from hotel instead of tuk tuk as there were 4 of us. The boat departed next to the Sunrise Palace restaurant. The going rate was US$27 for boat and US$34 for Cambodia VISA on arrival. Cash only! There was a lot of discussion about the $4 extra for the boat company to handle your VISA, my advice would be just go with that as certainly, once you reached Cambodia, you will find that you are charged tourist prices on most things and there are not much options!!! Why not just make it a start! If you entered Vietnam thru the online eVISA, you can exit thru this route, just select Hau Tien as your exit. The boat stopped twice, once on a pontoon for Vietnam immigration and once on land for Cambodia immigration. Tried not to go to WC on the Vietnam Pontoon, it was disgusting! No photos required for Cambodia VISA on arrival as they use a webcam to take your photo. You are required to give your fingerprints as well. Our boat was full (around 50 people) so immigration did take its time and our boat arrived 1 hour late in Phnom Penh. And the boat did get very stuffy towards the end of the journey. Wifi password was given out but it didnt work. Seems like just a router log on and did not go anywhere haha!

I was sceptical of the company after all the negative reviews but our ride from Phnom Penh to Chau Doc was just perfect! We had pick-up by tuktuk in PP one hour before the boat departed, check-in was easy and the boat even left before schedule. Water and some cookies were included and there were lots of swim wests on the boat. The staff helped us through immigration process, so it didn’t take a lot of time. We even arrived in less than 4 hours in Chau Doc. All in all a really good experience, I can recommend it to everyone!
