Google Map: Location of Trat and Koh Kong

See Google map below. Red spot marks the Cham Yeam Passport Checkpoint at the border-gate of Cambodia.

The map may be zoomed in for closer view, using the wheel of your mouse. You can use your mouse (to left click, hold and drag) to move the map around to view areas outside the frame. The red spot marks the border-gates of Hat Lek (Trat, Thailand) and Cham Yeam (koh Kong, Cambodia).

Trat is a southeastern province of Thailand. Koh Kong is a southwestern province of Cambodia. These provinces lie side by side along the border of the two countries.

Be aware: The name of the province of Trat is sometimes spelled "Trad".

You may see the name "Trad" written on buses that go to the province of Trat. Many web sites with contents related to the province of Trat also spell the name as "Trad". Do not be confused. Whether spelled as "Trat" or "Trad", the name refers to the southeastern province of Thailand named Trat, where you can go through and enter Cambodia.

The route to Cambodia, through these two provinces may be referred to as the Trat-Koh Kong Border Route. The actual gateway into Cambodia is at Trat's border-town of Hat Lek (sometimes spelled "Had Lek") and at Koh Kong's border-town of Cham Yeam. The Cambodian immigration authority identifies their control-point of exit and entry in this part of the border as the Cham Yeam International Checkpoint.

The overland journey from Bangkok to Phnom Penh via the Trat-Koh Kong Border Route is currently done in 4 trip-segments. It covers the total distance of, more or less, 700 kilometers (about 435 miles). The travel time is from 13 to 15 hours. The four trip segments are as follows:

 

1ST SEGMENT OF TRIP

From Bangkok bus station to Trat bus station

The distance is about 320 kilometers (about 198 miles). Travel time can actually take up 5 to 6 hours.

Time Factors You Need to Consider Well in the Course of Overland Travel: Bangkok to Phnom Penh

The bus for Trat leaves Bangkok around 7:30 in the morning. You could be in Trat by 1:30 in the afternoon. If your trip to the Hak Lek border (on a minivan from the bus station in Trat) starts at 3:00 in the afternoon, you could be in the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam border by 5:00 in the afternoon. After clearing the immigration checkpoints, it can take 20 minutes to reach the capital-town of Koh Kong on a "tuktuk" (a motorcycle drawn carriage) or a Toyota Camry taxi. You could be in the capital town of Koh Kong by 6:00 in the evening.

Be aware: The border "gate" at Hat Lek - Cham Yeam crossing point opens at 7:00 in the morning and it is closed at 8:00 in the evening.

Be aware: The last bus trip for Phnom Penh leaves Koh Kong around 12:30 in the afternoon.

This means travellers from Bangkok definitely cannot proceed to Phnom Penh on the same day of arrival at Koh Kong. It is, therefore, wise for everyone taking this route to consider staying overnight in Koh Kong before proceeding (on a 5-hour trip) to Phnom Penh on the following day.

First Segment of Trip: From a Bangkok bus station to Trat

The first segment of the trip begins from one of two particular bus stations in Bangkok, until the bus station in Trat is reached.

The bus terminals in Bangkok that you need to go to is either the Bangkok Eastern Bus Terminal (also called "Ekkamai Bus Station") or the Bangkok Bus Terminal Chatuchak (also called "Mochit Bus Station"). Information about these two bus stations are detailed below.

Many of the Trat-bound buses are really in the "Ekkamai" Bangkok Eastern Bus Terminal, but there are also some Trat-bound buses that wait for passengers at "Mo Chit" Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak).

If you choose to take a bus from the Eastern Bus Terminal

Be aware: The Eastern Bus Terminal is usually referred to as "Ekkamai" Bus Station.

This is because this bus station is just beside the BTS (Bangkok Mass Transport System) Skytrain Station that is called Ekkamai Station. The Skytrain station has been dubbed Ekkamai, most possibly, because it is along the Sukhumvit Road which, at this point, traverses the area of the city called "Ekkamai". The actual name you will see on the terminal building is "Bangkok Bus Terminal (Eastern)" and on a marker at the front is  "Bangkok Eastern Bus Terminal".

How to go to the Eastern Bus Terminal

By Taxi:

Using Khao San Road as an example of a point of origin (being the popular converging area of tourists and in the central part of the city of Bangkok), the Eastern Bus Terminal would be about 10 kilometers (about 6 miles) away, going eastward. Going there by metered taxi may cost, more or less, 95 Thai Baht (more or less US$3.00), depending on traffic condition. The taxi ride can take up to 30 minutes because of traffic congestion.

 

By Skytrain:

The Eastern Bus Terminal is just beside the Ekkamai BTS Skytrain Station.

If you are coming from the central part of the city of Bangkok (like Khao San Road area, for example) and you want to take the skytrain to the Eastern Bus Terminal, the Phaya Thai BTS Skytrain Station could be the nearest skytrain station you can go to where you can board a skytrain that can bring you to the Ekkamai BTS Skytrain Station. There you can get off and just walk to the Eastern Bus Terminal beside it. The train fare from Phaya Thai Skytrain Station to the Ekkamai Skytrain Station is 42 Thai Baht (about US$1.30). The train ride takes about 16 minutes.

 

Bus Ticket Fare and Trip Schedule:

You will immediately see the ticket windows as you enter the passenger terminal building of the Eastern Bus Terminal. The window that sells tickets for Trat is at the end of the rows of windows on the right side of the hall. The amount written on the glass panel of the ticket window is 241 Thai Baht (about US$7.70). 

The bus for Trat leaves at around 7:30 a.m. You could be in Trat by 1:30 in the afternoon.

 

Arriving in Trat completes the first segment only of your overland journey from Bangkok to Phnom Penh.

If you choose to take a bus from the Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak)

Be aware: This bus terminal is also called by several other names. It is usually referred to as "Mo Chit Bus Station" and also "Northern Bus Terminal". The actual name you will see written on its facade is "Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak)".

Be aware: This bus station is sometimes confused with a skytrain terminal that is located in the same place.

This is because Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak) is located in the District of Chatuchak where a skytrain terminal is also located. This skytrain terminal is called "Mo Chit BTS Skytrain Station". BTS stands for "Bangkok (Mass) Transport System". Its elevated rails run to different parts of the city of Bangkok. It connects with the Bangkok Metro Rail Transport (MRT) and with the Airport Railroad Link.

The bus station is actually far from the skytrain terminal. However, years ago the bus station was beside the Mo Chit BTS Skytrain Terminal and was called "Mo Chit Bus Station". It was later moved to a nearby place, still there in the District of Chatuchak, but now about 2.5 kilometers away from the skytrain terminal. While its name has now been changed to "Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak), many people still refer to it as "Mo Chit Bus Station" and sometimes "Mo Chit 2 Bus Station", which can be confused with the Mo Chit BTS Skytrain Terminal.

Please also take note that, in many ways it is written, Mo Chit is sometimes spelled as "Mochit", "Mor Chit" or "Morchit".

How to go to the Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak)

By Taxi:

Using Khao San Road as an example of a point of origin (being the popular converging area of most backpacking tourists) in the city of Bangkok, the Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak) would be about 10 kilometers (about 6 miles) away. Going there by metered taxi can cost around 95 Thai Baht (more or less US$3.00), depending on traffic condition. The taxi ride can take up to 30 minutes because of traffic congestion.

 

By Skytrain:

Using the Phaya Thai BTS Skytrain Station as an example of a point of origin (being in the central part of the city of Bangkok), if you ride the skytrain with the purpose of going to Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak), you will get off first at Mo Chit BTS Skytrain Terminal at the District of Chatuchak. The fare is 34 Thai Baht (about US$1.15). The train ride takes about 10 minutes.

The Mo Chit BTS Skytrain Terminal is about 2.5 kilometers (about 1.5 miles) from Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak). To proceed to the bus terminal you can take a taxi or a bus.

 

Taxi or Bus ride from the Mo Chit Skytrain Terminal to Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak):

A taxi-ride from Mo Chit BTS Skytrain Terminal to Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak) may cost more or less 50 Thai Baht (about US$1.60).

There are two types of buses you can board to go to the bus station. The bus colored dark-orange (No. 77) will take you from the skytrain terminal and let you down in front of the passenger and ticket building of the bus terminal, but on the other side of the highway. Use the skywalk to cross over the highway to the front of the bus terminal. The bus that is colored light-orange (also No. 77) will take you from the skytrain terminal and let you down at the back of the passenger and ticket building. You will need to walk, through stalls of a market, to go to the passenger and ticket building. The fare for an airconditioned bus is 17 Thai Baht (about 0.50 US cents) and 8 Thai Baht (about 0.25 US cents) for non-airconditioned bus.

 

Bus Ticket Fare and Trip Schedule:

The ticket window, in Bangkok Bus Terminal (Chatuchak), for the bus to Trat is on the ground floor of the bus terminal. Find the window with the name TRAT. The ticket fare is printed on the window. Amount printed in blue means first-class. Amount printed in red means second-class. The fare (Bangkok to Trat), on a first-class bus, is about 250 Thai Baht (about US$8.00). Fare for a second-class bus is about 248 Thai Baht.

For a more comfortable ride and less number of stops along the way, the first class bus is most recommended.

Be aware: In Thailand, you will need to use the Thai Baht currency. Exchange US Dollars in banks and money changers.

The bus for Trat leaves around 7:30 a.m. You could be in Trat by 1:30 in the afternoon.

 

Arriving in Trat completes the first segment only of your overland journey from Bangkok to Phnom Penh.

Second Segment of Trip: From Trat Bus Station to the Thailand-Cambodia Border at Hat Lek

The second segment of the trip is from the bus station in Trat up to the border in Hat Lek.

From Bangkok, you get off from the bus at the bus station in Trat. About 86 kilometers (53 miles) away from there, going south, is the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam border-gates at the border of Thailand and Cambodia.

Minivans are parked at the Trat bus station waiting for passengers going to the Cambodian border-gate at Hat Lek. The fare is about 120 Thai Baht (US$3.80). A minivan departs every 45 minutes, beginning at 7 in the morning, with the last trip departing from the bus station at 5 in the afternoon. Travel time from Trat to the border at Hat Lek can take up to 2 hours.

Useful Recent (January 2017) Information on Trat Bus Station: A traveler (James Walsh) from Bangkok to Phnom Penh, passing Trat, wrote to us that there are good eateries right there at the bus station where you can get a good meal, even breakfast in the morning.

You may actually see how things look like in the Trat bus station and the road from Trat to Hat Lek, including the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam border crossing point, in a good documentary video made by David Goorney. The short video also shows the road from the border to the capital town of Koh Kong. Thanks to Mr. Goorney. Click on the Return Arrow to go back to this page after viewing the video. Click this link to see the Trat to Hat Lek video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9vgHOTnpww

The minivans offload their passengers only a few meters from the Thai Immigration Passport Checkpoint at the border in Hat Lek.

Arriving at the Hat Lek border-gate and immigration checkpoint completes the second segment only of your overland journey from Bangkok to Phnom Penh. Two trip-segments more to go.

Before the third segment of the journey you will first need to go through the exit and entry immigration checkpoints. This would be through the Thailand immigration authority passport checkpoint and also through the Cambodian immigration authority passport and visa checkpoint at the Hat Lek and ChamYeam border-gates. Next article provides information about this.

Details of Going Through the Immigration Checkpoints at Hatlek and Cham Yeam Border-Gates

NOTE: The details of the THIRD SEGMENT OF TRIP, Bangkok to Phnom Penh, follows after the end of this article.

Satellite photo below shows the area of the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam border where the gateway to Cambodia is located.

The spot marked "A" by red map pin is where the Thailand passport exit checkpoint is located. The minivans from Trat Bus Station offload their passengers just a few meters from this spot. The spot marked "B" by a yellow map pin is the "border gate". The Cambodian Arrival Passport and Visa Checkpoint is marked "C" by a green map pin.

The map may be zoomed in for closer view, using the wheel of your mouse or the (+) and (-) button at the left bottom corner. You can use your mouse (to left click, hold and drag) to move the map around to view areas outside the frame.

The minivan from Trat stops just a few meters away from the Thai Departure Passport Checkpoint at the left side of the road. It should not take long to have the date of your exit from Thailand stamped on your passport.

After clearing the Thai passport checkpoint you can walk up the road toward the Cambodian territory. Just up ahead, about 180 meters away, is the Cambodian Immigration Office and Passport Checkpoint on the left side of the road.

Useful Recent (January 2017) Information on Cham Yeam Border-Gate: A traveler (Mr. James Walsh) from Bangkok to Phnom Penh, going through the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam Border-Gates, wrote to us that in Cham Yeam there is currently a new cafe that is airconditioned and has good toilet facilities. It is conveniently located just across the immigration counters. This is good news for travelers passing through this spot after a long journey from Bangkok and before another long journey to Phnom Penh.

Be aware: There have been reports about overcharging in the price of the tourist visa on arrival.

There have been many reports that incoming tourists are sometimes required to pay in Thai Baht currency, and the amount asked is around 1,300 Thai Baht (US$37.00). The official rate of a tourist visa is only US$30.00, or about 1,060 Thai Baht (based on October 2016 exchange rate at 35.34 THB per 1 USD). There is absolutely nothing else to pay for other than the official rate of a visa. The amount is actually posted in the checkpoint.

To avoid unnecessary hassle, you can get a visa prior to your trip. The most convenient way is to get a Cambodian Electronic Tourist Visa (e-visa) online. (Click here for information how to get a Cambodian e-visa.) You could be holding a passport issued by a country that is visa-exempted in Cambodia. Click here to check if you are tourist-visa exempted.

Be aware: At the border-gate you need to provide a passport size photo to get a visa. You will be charged a fee of 100 Thai Baht (about US$3.18) if an immigration officer will use his camera to get your photo or if he has to use his scanning machine to copy the photo from your passport.

Be aware: There could be people who would offer to help you fill up visa application forms or offer to actually get a visa for you.

It would be wise to politely refuse offers of such help, and ignore any insistence that may follow afterwards. Acceptance of such offers immediately subjects you to highly exorbitant service fees that are totally unnecessary. Forms are very easy to fill up and it does not require any help to get a visa. Never give your passport to anyone who offers to get a visa for you. Your passport should only be given to the immigration officer on duty at the checkpoint, for the stamping of the date of entry or for the issuance of a visa. It should be given back to you within a reasonable period of time.

You would be most vulnerable to attempts to overcharge the issuance of a visa if you come late in the afternoon, since for you a denial of entry would mean spending the night in the border without assurance of a decent shelter. Time your trips so that you are already at the border not later than 5:00 p.m. and on your way to the capital-town of Koh Kong before 6:00 in the afternoon.

You can actually see how things look like at the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam border crossing point in a documentary video, from www.koh-kong-cambodia.com.

Third Segment of Trip: From the Cham Yeam border-gate to Koh Kong capital town

The third segment of the trip is from the Cham Yeam border to the capital town of Koh Kong (sometimes called "Krong Koh Kong", meaning "city of Koh Kong"). It is about 10 kilometers (6 miles) away from the border.

Means of transportation

You will need to ride the means of transportation that are available there, which are motorcycles (called "moto"), motorcycle-drawn carriages (called "tuktuk") or Toyota Camry Sedan Taxis (the taxis are airconditioned).

A "moto" is a regular low-powered motorcycle. The tuktuks are stylized open carriages with wide soft seats facing each other, roof on top and curtains on the sides. The tuktuk is unique in Cambodia. Like a taxi cab, you can tell the driver to take you to a specific place where you want to get off.

You will cross Koh Kong Bridge

From the Cham Yeam border-gate going to the capital town of Koh Kong, you will need to cross the Koh Kong Bridge which is about 2 kilometers long from end to endIt spans an estuary where the waters of the Gulf of Thailand come in. The bridge is about 6 kilometers (about 4 miles) from the Cham Yeam border checkpoint. After the bridge the capital-town of Koh Kong is only about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) away. 

Transportation rates

Be aware: Drivers of motorcycles, tuktuks and taxis will usually initially offer a higher than usual rate of fare for the trip to the capital-town of Koh Kong from the border.

They will also ask for payment in Thai Baht, even though you are already in the territory of Cambodia.

The driver of a motorcycle for hire may at first ask you to pay 100 Thai Baht (about US$3.00). The actual usual fare is not more than US$2.50 (about 78 Thai Baht). You will need to pay the bridge toll when crossing the Koh Kong Bridge on a "moto". The bridge toll is 1,400 Cambodian Riel. That is about US$0.35 (cents). (The accepted exchange rate in Cambodia is 4,000 Cambodian Riel = US$1.00). You can pay in US currency (0.35 cents) or in Thai currency (11 Thai Baht).

The usual, and considered reasonable, "tuktuk" fare from the Cham Yeam border to the capital-town of Koh Kong is not more than US$7.00 (219 Thai Baht). You may at first be told that the rate is 300 Thai Baht (about US$9.50). Firm bargaining often lowers the offered amount of fare to a reasonable rate. In tuktuk, you will not need to pay the bridge toll.

Useful Recent (January 2017) Information About Trasportation Fare From Cham Yeam Border to Koh Kong: A traveler (Mr. James Walsh) from Bangkok to Phnom Penh, going through the Cham Yeam Border-Gate, wrote to us that after he managed to avoid the usual transportation touts in the border, the "tuk-tuk" driver charged him only US$5.00 for the 10-kilometer trip from the border to Koh Kong Bus Station at the town of Koh Kong. A "tuk-tuk" is a motorcycle-drawn carriage.

Taxis (Toyota Camry Sedan) can be hired in two ways: either shared with at least 3 other passengers or hired solo. The usual rate for a shared taxi is about US$3.00 per head. The driver will quote 100 Thai Baht (US$3.18). In shared-taxi arrangement, the driver will not go until at least 3 other passengers have been taken, because he would want to go only when he is assured that his trip to Koh Kong will earn him about 400 Thai Baht (US$12.75). If you will hire a taxi solo, the driver will immediately quote a fare of 400 Thai Baht (US$12.75). You may bargain for US$10.00. In a taxi, you will not need to pay the bridge toll.

Do not pay the fare before the trip. Pay only when you are already getting off in the capital-town of Koh Kong. Pay only the amount you and the driver have agreed on before the trip.

Be aware: In the border area and even in the capital-town of Koh Kong the Thai Baht is often the prefered currency.

While in Bangkok, have your dollars already exchanged into enough Baht that you will need in your journey up to Koh Kong. The rate of currency exchange that they will give you in the border area and in Koh Kong will get you much less amount of Baht for your dollar than the real running rate you will be given in Bangkok.

Be aware: If you are heavily loaded with luggage, it is wise not to ride the moto.

For safety purposes, only those carrying well strapped backpacks or small bags should ride the moto. Keep off from it if you are luggage-heavy, no matter how the moto driver (called "motodup") will try to assure you that "everything is OK" even if you can clearly picture in your mind how you and your luggage would be piled high and hanging wide on both sides of his two-wheeled vehicle, if you will give in to his persistent offer.

This "motodop" (motorcycle driver) took a whole family of five on his "moto" (motorbike), that includes two small children and a baby. Only he wears a crash helmet. 

Motorcycles that are used as public transport are in every street corner anywhere in Cambodia. They are called "moto". Their drivers are called "motodups". They are low-powered motorcycles, but motodups take no second thoughts about loading up to four adult passengers or taking a passenger with a load of luggages.

Be aware: Entering the Cham Yeam border just before evening can subject you to more expensive transportation rates going to the capital-town of Koh Kong.

The drivers of motodups, tuktuks and taxis know that you are anxious and in a hurry to get to the capital town before the evening deepens and may charge exhorbitant fare rates. Always try to time your arrival at the border to be, at the latest, before 5:00 in the afternoon.

The ride from the Cham Yeam border to the capital-town of Koh Kong is about 20 minutes. There are good hotels and guest houses there where you may stay for the night before your trip to Phnom Penh early in the following morning.

Book in advance your hotel or guesthouse in Koh Kong. Click here to find your hotel or guesthouse prior to the trip for hassle-free arrival and a restful evening after a whole day of travel.

After leaving the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam border gate, arriving at the capital-town of Koh Kong (called Krong Koh Kong) completes the third segment only of your overland journey from Bangkok to Phnom Penh.
