The remork-moto (tuk tuk) is a large trailer hitched to a motorcycle and pretty much operates as a low-tech local bus with oh-so-natural air-conditioning. They are used throughout rural Cambodia to transport people and goods, and are often seen on the edge of towns ready to ferry farmers back to the countryside.Often referred to as tuk tuks by foreigners travelling in Cambodia, they’re a great way to explore temples, as you getthe breeze of the bike but some protection from the elements.
The cyclo (bicycle rickshaw or pedicab) is a cheap way to get around urban areas. In
Phnom Penh cyclo drivers can either be flagged down on main roads or found waiting
around markets and major hotels. It is necessary to bargain the fare if taking a cyclo
from outside an expensive hotel or popular restaurant or bar. Fares range from US$1 to US$3. There are few cyclos in the provinces, and in Phnom Penh the cyclo has almost been driven to extinction by the moto (motorcycle taxi).
Phnom Penh has several public city bus routes that are proving popular with local students, but are not yet widely used by visitors. Elsewhere there are no public bus networks. There are however many bus companies providing transportation between Phnom Penh and the provinces that have better roads and connect with the capital city. All these buses are air-conditioned and equipped with Video TV, Wi-Fi. The average travel speed of the buses is about 80 kilometers per hour. Bus stations are mostly located around Phsa Thmey (New Central market) area and Riverside.
