A Guide to Train Services in Cambodia

There are now three train lines operating passenger train services in Cambodia:

  • Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville
    • Trains from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville operate once a day on Fridays and Saturdays, and twice on Sundays.
    • Trains from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh operate once a day on Saturdays and Mondays, and twice on Sundays.
  • Phnom Penh to Poipet
      • Trains from Phnom Penh to Poipet operate once a day on Fridays and Sundays.
      • Trains from Poipet to Phnom Penh operate once a day on Mondays and Saturdays.
  • Phnom Penh to Airport
    • Trains run from Phnom Penh to Phnom Penh International Airport every 30 minutes, every day of the week.

NB: The Phnom Penh to Poipet line is no longer a free service.

New Train Routes

Plans to construct three proposed new railway lines in Cambodia are still being finalised.

The proposed route linking the existing Poipet to Phnom Penh railway to the Vietnam border is likely to be the first to be constructed, because it will form part of the Pan Asian Railway Network and is therefore more likely to attract funding from the Chinese Government which is sponsoring much of the overall project.

Phnom Penh to Angkor Wat

Construction on the other two proposed routes, one linking Siem Reap (for Angkor Wat) with Thailand and Phnom Penh, and the other linking Laos and Phnom Penh, are likely to start less quickly as funding will be more difficult to secure.

Phnom Penh to Bangkok

The train line linking Bangkok to Phnom Penh is now fully operational. Services are likely to commence sometime in 2019 if an agreement on the operation of cross border train services can be made between Thailand and Cambodia, and Cambodia’s Royal Railways can complete its work rebuilding bridges and embankments on the Phnom Penh to Poipet railway line.
