Lao/Cambodian border warning

Posted by kamikaze on 16/5/2012 at 11:50

Hey guys,

I just wanted to warn you that apparently you can neither take a Lao motorbike into Cambodia nor a Cambodian one into Laos.

I bought a motorcycle in Pakse and planned to travel around Cambodia with it, but I had to sell it at the border. The guys there said, it wouldn't be a problem with a Vietnamese bike though.

Perhabs I should have tried to bribe them, but there were like 5 customs officers there playing cards, so it probably would have been quite expensive.. ;)

I didn't find any information on the internet on this, so I figured I'd just try.. I hope other travellers can benefit from my failure.. :)
