A Guide to Train Services in Cambodia
At the moment there is only one passenger train service in operation in Cambodia. Passenger services are currently operating on Fridays and at weekends from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville (via Takeo and Kampot) and Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh (via Kampot and Takeo). The Phnom Penh to Poipet Line currently has only freight train travelling on it.
New Cambodia Train Routes
Plans to construct three proposed new railway lines in Cambodia are still being finalised. For up to date information join The Thailand Train Facebook Group.
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.
