I was looking in to different ways of getting over the boarder going from Cambodia to Vietnam and I'm most interested in the boat option for something different from all the bussing.

I've already booked a flight there, so changing it is definitely not something I want to do given the huge fees. I checked the risk and it is showing as hi ...
