    I'm planning on going by land from BKK to Siem Reap via Poipet next Tuesday. Is it still ok to do so or should I change my plans?

    If it gets worse you will soon know that there will be no access to cambodia.

    Its a long way from the area and the border corssings.

    We did the same border crossing and had absolutly no problems just in the opposite direction.
    We caught a local train from the border down into BKK (about a 6 hour journey) and it was a great experience-open windows looking out to the countryside! Fantastic!
