my first ever share taxi was from Poipet to PP. I shared the taxi with 2 monks and a ladyboy - very interesting combination!!!

First shared taxi was both halves of the front seat to Battambang to escape the Water Festival a few years ago ($17).  Worked great if you like the same six Khmer songs played in an infinite loop.

Hired an extire taxi for a friend and I last January for Phnom Penh to Snooky ($47)  The driver stopped for lunch a much nicer place from what bus passengers get.  Definitely looking to share a taxi on my next trip down, December 11th.

I did Poipet to Battambang in 2006, me and 7 Cambodians in a Camry.   In 07, I went share taxi with 8 Cambodians in a Camry.  I thought I had become better at planning from town to town until I missed the regular seat minibusses to Kampot last year and took a local minibus with 19 Cambodians packed in it from Sihanoukville.  Usually I don't do share taxi/minibus, but every time I go there I wind up in one at some point during my stay.
