Going in a new direction in Cambodia

Speak and we shall listen! Based on feedback from previous Stray Asia customers and our local Stray experts, we’ve made the travel experience off the beaten track even better. Starting 1 November, there are a few route changes coming into effect for Stray Asia in Cambodia.

Here’s the rundown on our new itinerary developments and how it affects you…

New direction

The biggest difference you’ll see is that our buses will now run in a counter clockwise direction through the route, starting in Siem Reap and travelling southeast towards the coast to reach Phnom Penh (see map). The first departure travelling in the new direction will leave Siem Reap on 4 November.

New connection

A new road connecting Don Det to Siem Reap gave us the opportunity to create a better flow through the region. If you are connecting from Laos, you will now travel directly to Siem Reap from Don Det, rather than heading to Phnom Penh first.

New destination

We noticed that many (OK, most) of our passengers were taking the time to hop off and head to the popular beach destination of Sihanoukville. We don’t blame you – it’s a great location to get amongst the action with every water sport you can imagine or for just relaxing in the sun after some busy travel days. To help you make the most of it, we’ve added Sihanoukville as an overnight stop for not just one, but two nights!

What does this all mean?

With these improvements, there will be one Cambodia-only pass – the Khmer – going forward. There are two free inter-country connections included with the Khmer pass so you can connect from Bangkok/Don Det to Siem Reap, and Siem Reap to Bangkok or Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City. This means that if you previously purchased the Chhnang, Ambel or Mrech pass, you can still stray with the same connections as before – just contact our friendly Reservations team on [email protected] to discuss your itinerary.

How can I get more details?

If you already have a pass to stray through Cambodia and have any questions about the new route, contact the Reservations team ([email protected]) and they’ll be happy to help.
