I crossed that way about 2 years ago. It wasn't *too* bad, but it wasn't great either. Things took about an hour total? It felt like that was a long time but I don't really have anything to compare it to... I guess if you are going straight from Phnom Pehn to Bangkok then it's probably the fastest way, but I think if I ever were to do it again then I would cross somewhere else and use it a an excuse to check out what is interesting nearby in Thailand once across. almost 9 years ago
You described it in a funny way. It is a bit true, but can be OK. Be a bit careful with your belongings though. The trick is children run up to you from both sides. Once they have you attention on one side they get into your bags on the other side. Though I knew about this trick I was once so tired I did not properly attend to the risk. I lost a 600$ smart phone and some other stuff. almost 9 years ago
