Getting around Phnom Penh
By motorbike taxi
Known locally as motodups or motos, these two wheelers will whizz you through the streets of Phnom Penh for as little as 50 cents, but expect to pay more if you’re traveling at night.
There aren’t any taxi stands in Phnom Penh yet, so you should call and order a taxi to your location. Taxi fares are between USD 9 and USD 12 to get to Phnom Penh International Airport while a full-day tour costs USD 35 upwards
These enclosed motorcycle-like vehicles are a less expensive option than taxi and the most pleasant way to get around Phnom Penh. Average fares are about USD 2 for short rides around the center, while longer trips cost USD 3 or more.
For those who want to slow down and take in the sights of Phnom Penh in a more relaxing way, the three-wheeled cycle rickshaw called cyclo is an ideal option. For a day of sightseeing, the fares are around USD 10. For short and one-way jaunts, the prices are similar to moto fares.
