The eco-friendly itinerary

Since 2018, the « Royal Railway Cambodia » has set a train service allowing you to go downtown from the airport, for about 0.30 USD in 30 minutes. Please have a look at the train schedules and the seats available through this link: http://royalrailway.easybook.com, then make a reservation. Once you get to the «Cambodia Railway Station», order a rickshaw-taxi via Grab (with the promo code « [XXX] »). Using natural gas and hence polluting less than a regular car, the rickshaw-taxi will bring you wherever you want in the city.
