Trains only run from Phnom Penh to Poipet and to Sihanoukville on a single track. The train network in Poipet is connected to the Thai train network.
Two trains alternate on the tracks - a yellow train and a blue train. The arrangement of the seats is slightly different (sideways or forward), but both trains are air-conditioned and tickets are for the same price. Announcements are made in Khmer and English by a man in a jacket with a portable karaoke machine, giving the customer information a personal touch.
They leave Phnom Penh around 7 am and the ride lasts almost the entire day. Trains run very slowly and are very cheap, but for budget travelers who have the time to travel, it is a great experience. Trains tend to depart on time. It is recommended if you allow yourself the time.
