  • Phnom Penh to Airport
    • Trains run from Phnom Penh to Phnom Penh International Airport every 30 minutes, every day of the week.

The Phnom Penh to Poipet line is currently undergoing extensive maintenance work which is why there are only limited services running, and why its free to travel on the trains running on this line:

New 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.


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.
