The best way to get to us from Thailand is to fly from Bangkok to Phnom Penh.
We can organize a pick-up from the airport just outside Phnom Penh directly to our Dive Centre or your hotel in Sihanoukville which will take around 4 hours.
If you are visiting Phnom Penh before you dive with us, you can take a taxi into Phnom Penh from the airport which costs $12 or a tuk-tuk which is $9. You can visit our Phnom Penh office to arrange all your diving before heading to Sihanoukville.
There are direct tourist buses from Bangkok to Sihanoukville which can be arranged through agents or your guesthouse. Do not come via the Poipet crossing to Siem Reap unless you want to visit there first as it doubles the travel time. The most direct route runs from Bangkok to Trat (with some people opting for a detour to Koh Chang), then on to the border crossing at Had Lek Thailand where you cross to Koh Kong City, Cambodia. From Koh Kong, bus or taxi to Sihanoukville.
