Overland Having made this journey in september 2006 (wet season), in my opinion the road between Kratie and Stung Treng is in far better shape than portrayed here. Sure, it's not a highway in any western sense of the word, but it's one of the better roads in Cambodia. The road is partly paved, partly gravel, but negotiable at fairly high speed all the way, even in the wet season. All bridges are made of concrete, not a rusty truss or wooden plank in sight. Hans Hoppe - Since noone objected here, removed "worst highway in the world" reference. hopha

Is $120 for a taxi to Phnom Penh a typo? I was offered the same ride for 70,000 riel (less than $20) from Banlung and it can't be much more in the reverse direction.

Plunge forward! But was that $20 for a seat in a taxi or for chartering the whole thing? Jpatokal 09:30, 16 October 2006 (EDT)
$120 was for chartering the whole taxi (the ubiquitous Toyota Camry). I doubt $20 would get you much more than a seat in a tightly packed minibus. Did you make the trip for $20? hopha 09:37, 16 October 2006 (EDT)
Unfortunately, I don't know. I declined as I was heading to Stung Treng. This was back in April of this year.
