Mothballed for years, Cambodia’s rail system has been rehabilitated in recent years and limited passenger services resumed in 2016 through national carrier Royal Railways. Currently the only service links Phnom Penh with Sihanoukville via Kampot, with departures on weekend mornings. Plans call for plugging the Cambodian line into the Trans-Asian Railway network, which will link Singapore and China, but connecting Phnom Penh with Ho Chi Minh City via a Mekong bridge will take a few years yet. The 385km northwestern line, which links Phnom Penh with Pursat and Battambang and was built before WWII, is next in line to open.
