Getting there & away
Share taxis for Svay Rieng leave from Phnom Penh’s Chbah Ampeau taxi park in the southeast of the city. The cost is about 10, 000r per person. Hua Lian operates buses direct from Phnom Penh to Svay Rieng (8000r, three hours, one departure a day).
Travelling to Svay Rieng from the Bavet border crossing with Vietnam may be more difficult because taxi drivers prefer the more lucrative option of taking foreigners all the way to Phnom Penh. Stuff yourself into a taxi with other travellers and ask to be dropped off at Svay Rieng (US$2). Taxis usually drop people off near Psar Svay Rieng.
