If you aren’t planning on renting a car, or don’t know anybody who would send a driver, there are two options to choose from:
- Tuk Tuk
A big decision maker whether to take a taxi or ride the tuk tuk is the amount and size of your luggage. A tuk tuk is not a car and eventually even Asians won’t be able to pile another suitcase on top of 3 others 🙂
Also is a tuk tuk open and not “caged” like a car is. We have been told over and over again to always keep our belongings close to the body. If your things are spread all over the vehicle it could be difficult keeping an eye on them.
However, it would be even more difficult for someone on a passing motor bike/tuk tuk to steal a 23kg heavy suitcase. Simply be carefully and watch out, and you will just be fine.
There will be a taxi station at the airport, with chilled Cambodians just waiting to take you to the place you need to go.
It is a little bit more expensive than a tuk tuk would be; but it is also featured with an AC, more room and a distance to all the hustle and bustle on the road.
Some of the taxi drivers are very talkative; little business men and according to themselves great tourist guides who are trying to convince you to let them show you around the city.
When we first arrived, we didn’t know how things work and were just exhausted from a super long flight. When we saw the taxi station we decided to do this without further ado.
Any other rides within the city from then on we did with tuk tuks; just because they are so extraordinary and feel so much more like Asia 🙂
It definitely is a personal preference – and if you can’t decide you still could walk 🙂
