We didn't feel comfortable going on our own based on a simple reason: we don't drive motorbikes. You could probably go by bike bit we didn't want that. So, a tour with a group was our only option at that point. Pick up and lunch...More

It takes about 45 min each way to get up and down the mountain. As you come up, you see various stages of construction. At the top is a pretty ugly hotel-casino. Several derelict colonial villas and a charming old casino building. If you are...More

Newly renovated by the casino group who seem to own most of the land up in Bokor, the hill station is no longer a dilapidated ruin but a restored colonial gem and soon to be hotel. Worth visiting for the spectacular view from the terrace.

Before this place was very interesting. I loved the old french casinohotel. Now it is restored and boring. Go to this place for the road up there. not for the old hotel.

This is my favorite attraction in the Kampot area, an amazing ride up the mountain and beautiful historic grounds with amazing views down to the Straits of Thailand on an unclouded day. You will enjoy!

Probably best to stay in Kampot and make it a day trip from there. The bus PP to Kampot is 4.5 hours one way and the ride up to Bokor is another hour, so you'd spend 9 hours in a bus if such a day tour even exists

Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville (1 Replies)
I'm thinking of hiring a taxi to drive us from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. Can anyone tell me how long the ride would take? I see that Kep, Kampot, and Bokor Hill Station are all, arguably, enroute. If we detour to see these places, how much longer will the journey be and which of these places are worth the detour? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

2-3hrs. The bus is also very easy, cheap & regular from downtown PP (Ho Wah Genting is the bus operator). Base yourself in Sihanoukville and do day trips from there. Bokor demands a full day as it can take a couple of hours to ride up to the Hill Station at the top and similar to get down again. Kep is very quiet, but nice for a day or two.
best way to get from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville (10 Replies)
Hi everyone I know there are no flights, sadly, so is it best for my friend and I to go from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh via air, then bus to Sianoukville, or should I just bite the bullet and do the bus in one hit. or should I break the trip overnight at Phnom Penh? How many hours is it on the bus?? I woud have liked to have gone to Kampot and broken the trip up, but i believe Bokor Hill station road is out. Any advice very gratefully recieved, even if it is from bitter experience :-)

both ways are possible, buses leave SR at 730am, arrive PPN at 1230pm, the last bus for SHV leaves at 2pm (5hours). I recommend Mekong Express bus, but that is gonna be very tiring, and skipping Phnom Penh is kinda sad. You will pass through Phnom Penh both way. A day in Phnom Penh should be enough, there are a lot to see actually: Royal Palace(decent dress-not too sexy lol), National Museum, Psa Toultompung, if you are interested in Pol Pot, go check Toulsleng and Cheung Ek museams....More

Is Bokor Hill open? (3 Replies)
I'm coming to Cambodia in two weeks and wondered if Bokor Hill Station was open. I heard they were redeveloping the roads. Anyone been there in the last few weeks? Thanks

I was in Sihanoukville 2 weeks ago & when I enquired about the advertised trips to Bokor Hill was told they were not happening. I checked at several places, so this should be accurate info!!
