This railway station was built in 1931, newly renovated and officially reopened in 2010. Passenger traffic is very small-only from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. You can enter the ticketing hall, but the platform is no longer open to the public. In general, this railway station is relatively small compared to Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. But this place has some dark secrets. It is the founding place of the Cambodian Workers' Party and the first meeting of the Khmer Rouge leadership.
The train is so unfamiliar to the Cambodian people that I asked the owner of the hotel, he didn't know where the train station in Phnom Penh was. When I looked at the map and walked to the train station, I was very surprised. Such a large train station is so well decorated, but there are no trains to travel here. It is really a waste. Perhaps the next time you come to Cambodia, the train station in Phnom Penh will be more lively, because their country is also working hard to develop train transportation, and it is really too slow to rely solely on cars.
its old and slow... but if you want experice it then its fine. wouldnt recommend for anyone looking for fast travel.
