Kumho Samco Express plans to open a bus route between Ho Chi Minh City and Siem Reap Province in neighboring Cambodia this month, according to a company source.

The firm, a joint venture between the Kumho Construction & Engineering Company of South Korea’s Kumho Asiana Group and Vietnam’s Saigon Transportation Mechanical Corporation, plans to select the backpackers’ area in HCMC’s District 1 as the point of departure and arrival.

The service aims to transport passengers of Kumho’s Asiana Airlines who fly into either HCMC or Siem Reap between the two centers, given the current lack of offered flights by the airline between the destinations.

Kumho Samco Express, with a total investment of US$7.5 million, currently operates high-quality bus routes from HCMC to various domestic towns and cities including Nha Trang, Da Lat, Phan Thiet, Ca Mau and Can Tho.
