    Hi,

    Is going into Laos from Cambodia via the remote border crossing pretty straightforward and relatively safe or is it best to fly from Cambodia?

    Thanks!

    Hi mathieau,

    It is straightforward and safe. There have been some rumours that the border has been closed, but I've heard otherwise -- best to ask around once you're in the country.

    Hi jacquelyn,

    Welcome to Travelfish!

    If you take a look at the days 9-13 of this Cambodia itinerary, you'll see the key spots mentioned between Phnom Penh and Kratie.
