Border Update: Dom Kralor - Veun Kham (cambodia-laos)

Posted by smkuchta on 12/5/2009 at 16:37

Border name: Dom Kralor / Veun Kham (Cambodia-Laos)
Date used: May 10 2009
Visa on arrival available: No entering Laos, Yes entering Cambodia,
Your nationality: Canada & US
Comments: Quick crossing. The officials on both sides asked for $1 for a stamp fee, easier to pay than argue as transport is non-existent and your minibus isn't going to wait while you argue the merits of a dollar.

Took minibus from Stung Treng to border, met by Lao minibus on the other side, followed by boat to Don Khone. 3 hours end to end, seemed a bit chaotic bus to bus to boat but everything went smooth.

When you get off the bus in Stung Treng you'll be met by several guys asking you if you want to book for Laos. Go to the Riverside guest house to book, avoid "Mr. James" from the Sekong Star hotel as he is a scammer and will try and overcharge you greatly.
