    Has anyone had the recent experience of getting a visa for Vietnam while in Cambodia, either Phnom Penh or Siem Reap? How did you go about it and how long did it take? Do you recall the price? Thanks!

    Hi longleat

    Our PP hotel organised the Viet visa for us, $35 and takes one day. As I recall there are plenty of places advertising visa services in both PP and SR.

    Travel well

    That's pretty much the deal. If you're into saving a few US$ you can go to the embassy yourself with a couple of passport photos and a pen (God knows why there's not any there, but there isn't) is PP, and fill out an application which costs something like $32 and takes three days...as in you put the form in on the Monday and pick it up on the Wednesday.

    Marian's hotel sounds funky though if you don't want to hang around. Only she, at this stage, knows which one it is though...

    In SR go to the internet cafe next to Red Piano. I know I sound like I work for them or something, but they are really good. Not only are they the sweetest people in an entire country of amazingly sweet people, but they're reliably honest too...

    My final piece of advice though is just stay in Cambodia...

    Thanks! In Siem Reap I heard the price was no less than $45. and takes 3 days. If that is true, I may be better off waiting until I get to PP. Have you heard the prices and time frame in Siem Reap? Again, many thanks!

    It does take longer in SR as they have to send it down to PP to the Vietnamese embassy. Three days or so sounds pretty standard, again though really do try that internet cafe because if you're in SR anyway and get there before 7am or something like that then it possibly takes two days? Don't quote me on that though, as I could be wrong. When we needed to get Vietnam visa's we pretty much left it til the night before we left for BKK so had to arrange it from there.

    Otherwise the embassy in PP isn't that much of a hassle, it's down Monivong Blvd and at least around Lakeside most of the drivers seem to know where it is. It's in LP Cambodia guide though if you can't find one that knows it's location. Make sure you tell them intersecting street numbers, as I'm sure you've already realised it you're in PP.

    Or you will soon.

    Hi guys

    Our hotel was the Indochine 2 on 5/130 so the riverside area, but I always check out prices for visas and transport elsewhere before buying. If I like where I'm staying I give the hotel/GH the commission.

    Regards

    Marian
