Siem Reap to Bangkok by CASINO Bus | 12+ HOURS & overland border crossing

Taking the bus from Siem Reap to Bangkok is an “experience”. This was our first overland border crossing, and our first time taking local bus in Cambodia and Thailand. The trip didn’t exactly make for a fun day, but looking back it wasn’t that bad. If you’re looking for a cheap way to get from Siem Reap to Bangkok, and you have time to kill, consider taking the buses.

If want to copy our bus trip from Siem Reap to Bangkok, this blog post from Move to Cambodia will show you exactly how.

We went with the casino bus option which I would highly recommend. Plus, if you watch our video, hopefully it will make find the casino buses a little bit easier. That was definitely the most challenging part of the journey.

  • I loved watching this. I live in Thailand now, in Chiang Mai. Everytime I have gone to Bangkok it is an experience. Some friends and I want to Bangkok a few years ago and we were going to take the sleeper train back but we missed it. We hopped on motorcycle taxis and chanced down our train. I think that was the scariest experience of my life. They went even faster and crazier than the tuk tuks. Sitting on one of those carrying our food container, holding a Thai Ice tea and with my backpack on. I am so surprised I did not die.

  • That crossing is a lot less scary than Malaysia to Thailand.. They take your passport and then you have to drive half an hour before you get it back and we were warned by our guide that people go missing between the 2 points.

  • Service info fact:
    Men say (phonetical): Hello/goodday : Sawadeeee kaP Thank you: Kop kuuuhn kaP
    Female say : Sawadeeee kaaaee : Kop kuuuhn kaaaee
    The P in kaP are sharp and short, the kaaaee for females are long and sweet fading out in the end. If that makes sense? 🙂
    IF, and only if, you have been given a special service (dont say if a waiter brings food fx) or attention. You can use a "very gratified thank you by saying (male) Kop kuuuhn MAI kaP.
    I have travelled a total of maybe 2 years last 30 years in Thailand. Its a very safe country for westerns. By law a criminal typical gets double jailtime if caught stealing from a westerner versus a Thai stealing from a Thai. 2 crimes to be aware of are spiked drinks in shady bars at night in Bangkok (you pass out and get robbed, but nothing else happens), and same thing can happen if you are young and go to Full moon party at Koh pang nang. Last place some rapes have been reported in connection with spiked drinks, but thats very rare. A few years ago I heard they now have dna rape kit, so maybe that have stopped. The police in Koh pang nang are roumored to have connections to/getting money from the drug providers. Its so easy to party in Thailand, so maybe the full moon party are an experience you dont need?

    I have allways enjoyed eating from street kitchens and have never had any problems. I have had 2 cases of food poisining in Thailand, both times from eating at hotels. If you wanna eat like the thais (strong!) just say "pet" or "pet pet". Remeber if you eat traditional strong thai dishes, drink before you eat and in the middle of the meal. First mouthfull after drinking tends to just be"strong", the flavours really come to their right after that first experience.

    A great way to spend a day exploring bangkok are to go down to Chao Phraha river (main river running through Bangkok) and simply buy a full ticket. Sail to the end and look underway where you wanna hop off on the way back. If you have a loney planet you can see if some of the stations are mentioned and sometimes it mentions that there are a market on thursdays etc etc. Anyway. cheap and great sightseeing.

    Last years Thailand unfortunately have been flooded with Chinese and Russian tourists. Its pretty impossible to get an honest opinion from a Chinese, even when abroad they are so afraid of Chinese mind control policing, that they arnt honest, just polite. Stay away from Russians. Those that can afford to travel are generally not the ones you generally want to meet. Either they are hypermaterialistic/I have money minded OR they are criminals with way to shady ties. Thais really ARE very polite and friendly, the worst most rude behaviour you can show to them are "my rights are". If you are in some kind of trouble, tell someone an empathic long story and they will typically go a long way for you. Some areas that once was famous have now been spoiled by masstourism. Unless you wanna try some of the nice dives there I would stay away from Phuket. If you go to Koh Samui chaweng is now like Phuket, touriswise. I can recommend the night train from Bangkok (or from the malaysian border via Bangkok) to Chang Mai. If you go to bed early and get up 2,5 hours before arrival and go to the the wagon in the front-ish you can experience driving through jungle in mountainvalleys. The nice, but relatively primitive vibe, drinking a nice cup of the/coffee while you see the vapors rising from the jungle are gold, for at least my soul. As you then approach Chang Mai the sun competes with the vapors from the jungle. Many height meter has to be climbed along this stretch and you can hear the engine has to work to keep the speed.
    Same night train can be taken back to BKK. I can also recommend Bangkok to Surat Thani. Kara/Nate took the bus (vlog 46)and missed that one. If you go of at Surat Thani trainstation you can get transfers to ferrys to Samui/Koh Tao/Koh pang nang just across the road, you cant miss it. BTW…ALLWAYS buy your train tickets AT the trainstation, its often less than half price there. If you arnt going on a sleeping train or long way, just buy the ticket right prior to the departure, then often even cheaper. IF you go by taxi, allways choose "metertaxi" and INSIST they put the meter on. If he says "yes" and drive without doing so, insist again and if it doesnt work, leave.

    Vietnam are the new Thailand in many ways. The current political situation in Thailand are not good. They basically have had their democracy taken away from them by a millitary junta. They were held in their place by the old, now dead, king. Should you get into an accident YOU have caused I really would consider paying you out of that situation on the spot and leave the area asap. I have not been in that type of situation myself but have heard stories over the years with both ways of acting. Paying or staying. Pay and leave seems to be the cheapest in the long run. If you are in very heavy tourist areas you pay up to 10 times the price of some meals than in non-tourist areas.
    Last recommendation for the adventures with a serious travel insurance. Hire a dirt/moutain motorcycle in Chang Mai and a map called "The Mah hong song loop" and go on a 5-10 day trip to small mountain villages where only dirtroads are. Be sure to arrive in a village before sun goes down, you dont want to get caught on a jungle hillside in the dark. Maybe sweatdripping hard at day, but def. freezing at night. Dont go alone on such a trip no matter how good you think you can drive. Go Go Go 🙂

  • Tuk-tuks are scams ts better to just get a motorbike if your travelling alone and taxis or uber are better if travelling with more than one person. this is like 3 years late but this is for people going to Thailand and using this video as a guide
