Getting there and away

To/From Siem Reap
The regular transport between Siem Reap and Anlong Veng is by pick-up. A very good idea is to get a seat in the cab as the road is dusty and very bumpy. We did the trip by 4WD in April 2005 and it took just over three hours, but once the rain comes, trip time will increase considerably.

Crossing to Thailand
If you plan to cross the border to Thailand via the Anlong crossing, on the Thai side you will need to hitchhike from the border along about 25km of dirt road till you reach a sealed road (Route 2328), where there are apparently songtheaw services. Try to get a ride all the way to Route 24 (near the village of Ban Lalom) where there are regular buses to Khorat and Ubon Ratchathani.

You are well advised to cross the border in the morning when the traders will be leaving in their pick-ups heading into Thailand. If you cross in the afternoon, you could have a lot of difficulty getting a ride.

Getting Around

Motodops are available in town -- near the market and out the front of most guesthouses. The town itself is small enough to walk around. For a half day trip up the Dangrek escarpment to all the main sights expect to pay in the region of $3-$5, though you will need to negotiate. Some of the motodops speak some English.
