Royal Railway (Cambodia)

Royal Railway operates the sole railway line in Cambodia, with the railway running in a north-south direction from Poipet on the border of Thailand to Sihanoukville by the seaside via Phnom Penh. The railway is split into two distinct lines, with both converging at Phnom Penh. A dedicated branch line also serves Airport Shuttle Trains between Phnom Penh and Phnom Penh International Airport.

Future plans include linking the railway onward to Thailand on the SRT Eastern Line after Poipet to Aranyaphrathet.

    Now, I have learnt that ORD 275 has arrived at Aranyaprathet around 13.00, so it can catch Train that depart Poipet at 14.15.

    For the return trip, it is quite a trouble to catch either ORD 276 or ORD 280, so the only alternative are either Casino bus or intercity van for Aranyaprathet.
