If it is still correct, can anyone advise on good travel agents, the price they charge, and anything else I might need to know. I would really appreciate any advice.....!! thanks x ...

Kaam Samnor Border Crossing, Cambodia Visa, Laos Visa

Posted by kpop on 10/6/2009 at 02:57

Hello All! I have a few visa related questions: 1) Is it possible to get a Cambodia visa on arrival at the Kaam Samnor/Ving Xuong border crossing? 2) Is the standard Laos tourist visa for 15 days or 30 days? I would be entering from Vietnam at the Dien Bien Phu crossing and getting my visa at the border. 3) For both Cambodia and Laos visas, are the border officials particular about your photos? Do they need to be a certain size, etc? I was planning to print a few 4" x 6" head sh ...

Are rush Visa Services reliable?

Posted by splacknuck on 9/6/2009 at 02:02

I am a US citizen still in the US, and I need to get a 60-day tourist visa. I need to get it sent out, processed, and back within 10 days, because I travel a lot and need my passport most of the time. Regular consulate processing takes at least two weeks unless I deliver it by hand, but lots of rush services offer 5 day and even 24 hr processing. Yet they are not in the same city as any consulate. How do these middle-men work, and are they reliable? Thanks awfully! ...

Hi Seasoned travellers! I'm planning to travel to Thailand, Cambodia then onto Vietnam. Was wondering what the most feasible approach to this journey would be (basically the best border crossings from Thailand to Cambodia then from Cambodia to Vietnam) I've got a month, and I'm not too worried about the time I spend in Thailand or Cambodia, I'd like visit Angkor Wat, my main priority though is getting back to Vietnam to see some more of the South which I missed on my previous visit. I'd ...

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 Do ...

Cambodia/Thailand scam

Posted by lodge on 22/4/2009 at 19:06

me and my friends recently used the Aranyaprathet/Poipet crossing to get into Cambodia. On leaving the train we were approached by a tuk-tuk driver who said he would take us to the border crossing for 20b. However, instead of taking us to the crossing, he took us to an outdoor office in the middle of nowhere. These guys gave us entry cards to fill in, claiming to be a reputable travel company and 'proved it' by showing us their email address (which was ''). They said they ...

Border Update: Sop Hun / Tay Trang

Posted by brucemoon on 20/4/2009 at 21:07

The Travelfish details at 'Laos 'border crossings' for this crossing are now out of date. Yes, the bus leaves Muang Khua on the Lao side for Dien Bien Phu on the Vietnamese side at 7:00am (sometimes later, but don't bet on it departing late). One is well advised to be at the departure point (Vietnamese side of the Nam Ou [river] by 6:30am as the seats on the bus are limited and it's a first come first served basis). As we left, several people were left stranded because they didn't ge ...
