Border Crossing question...

Posted by ShackJaymz on 3/3/2012 at 03:18

Hello,

I'm about to venture into Vietnam from Cambodia

I want to cross from Ha Tien to Phu Quoc then from PQ to the Vietnamese mainland

Is this possible? The locals seem unsure, saying 'PQ to the mainland maybe a local crossing'

I need to be certain before heading onwards

Any help would be great!

Cheers,

Posted from within Vietnam.

I'm not quite sure what you mean,as Ha Tien IS on the Vietnamese mainland.You cannot take a boat directly to Phu Quoc from Cambodia,but must enter Vietnam first,and Ha Tien is in Vietnam,close to the Cambodian border.From here you can get a ferry to Phu Quoc-there is a choice of 3 ferries daily.From Phu Quoc,you can either return to Ha Tien,go to Rach Gia (the other port serving Phu Quoc) or fly to Can Tho or Saigon

Thanks so much for this

We leave for Phu Quoc in the morning

P.S. I don't know how I got Ha Tien mixed up :/
