Thanh Nien Daily reports on a new boat service that has commenced between Can Tho and Phnom Penh. The service will run from Can Tho to Phnom Penh on Thursday and Phnom Penh to Can Tho on Sundays. The trip, taking around seven hours will pass through Long Xuyen and Chau Doc, costing US$45 to Phnom Penh and US$35 in the opposite direction. The difference in cost most likely due to the extra expense of running upriver, against the current.
Update: Due to low business, the schedule for this service has been modified to leaving Can Tho on Thursday and returning from Phnom Penh on the Sunday.
Update: This service has been suspended — ask around in Can Tho or Phnom Penh to see if it has restarted.
