Pursat Getting in & out

Overland

  • Running through the province is National Highway 5 that runs between the national capital of Phnom Penh towards the southeast, and the second largest city in the country, Battambang towards the northwest. This is one of the better roads in the country. Bus transport costs $2.50 USD from/to Battambang, and $5 USD from/to Phnom Penh. One bus every half-hour in the morning and early afternoon (almost all buses are through Phnom Penh-Battambang services). Travel time is roughly 4 hours from Phnom Penh and 1.5 hours from Battambang. All the major bus companies service Phnom Penh. Sorya and Capitol Tour seem the most reliable. Capitol Tour also has the lastest afternoon departure from Phnom Penh, at 2:00pm (and sometimes 3:00pm also).

  • Rail travel to Pursat is an option, as the trains that go between Phnom Penh and Battambang stop here. As of 2008, there is only one train a week in each direction. The train leaves early Saturday morning from Phnom Penh bound for Battambang, arriving in Pursat mid-afternoon, and then commences the return trip early Sunday morning. The ride is scenic, but agonizingly slow; a worthwhile experience if you can bear it!
