Airport taxi price increase?

Postby TimeTraveler » Thu May 24, 2018 10:54 am

Two years ago, I paid $7 for a taxi from the airport to my hotel in Doun Penh. This May, I was quoted $15 for the same trip although they did come down to $12. I opted for a tuk tuk for $8. Is $12 the going rate for taxis now?

I believe 12$ is the going rate now for most of Daun Penh. I think beyond Sihanouk Blvd I think it might be a dollar more? Anyway, yeah 12 bucks is a going rate. Honestly I think you might be mistaken about how much you paid two yeara ago (or you got lucky). I think it's been over ten dollars for at least 5 years if not longer.

Perhaps I was mistaken. A lot of alcohol has been consumed since then.

Grab is currently probably the cheapest of the ride hail apps with all their promotions. Grab Tuktuk around or under $3 to anywhere in central PP and Justgrab (car) ~$5. And Grab has train+grab combo promotion which would be free if you are going to riverside/bkk/russian market/toul kork areas.

And of course there is the city bus option too.

Go out from airport and on the right hand =
- Taxi to downtown = 8$
- Same for tuk-tuk = 5$

Just a few meter of walk from arrival area.
