High Speed Boat to Phnom Penh to Start

A new Can Tho – Phnom Penh sea route is expected to come into operation late March 2006.

Luxuriously-decorated 120-seat high-speed boat Cawaco 01 can cover 24 nautical miles per hour. The fares are US$45 a passenger for Can Tho – Phnom Penh route and US$35 for Phnom Penh - Can Tho.

There will be one outward and return trip every two days. It will depart at 7.30 A.M from the Ninh Kieu 2 restaurant hotel and will land at Phnom Penh harbor in seven hours, including the time for immigration procedures.
