Cambodia has one train service that is possible to arrange your trip when travel to Cambodia.
- Europe to Cambodia by Train: When you have much time, it is possible to reach Cambodia overland from London, taking trains as far as Saigon (Vietnam), then a bus from Saigon to Phnom Penh. Search for more information on the London-Saigon journey. See below for details of the bus service between Ho Chi Min City and Phnom Penh.
- Battambang to Phnom Penh by Train: Recently there was just one train service remaining in Cambodia, from Battambang to Phnom Penh. Previously running every second day, in 2006 it went down to once a week, and in early 2009 it stopped running altogether. There are now no regular passenger trains in Cambodia, only buses. There are also currently NO trains on the Phnom Penh – Kampot – Sihanoukville route or on the Battambang-Sisophon route. There has been talk for years of rebuilding the railway to the Thai border, and building a new line to Saigon, thus linking Europe and Singapore by rail without a gap, but no action has yet been taken.
- Bangkok (Thailand) and Phnom Penh(Cambodia) by Trains: Since the war in Cambodia, the railway line between Bangkok and Phnom Penh has only been running between Bangkok and Aranyaprathet on the Thai side of the Thai/Cambodian border, and (at least until recently) between Battambang and Phnom Penh within Cambodia. Train service across the border between Aranyaprathet and Battambang has been suspended for some years.
