Hi I'm travelling to Cambodia in July (wet season!) and wanted to cross into Thailand at the above crossing. Does anyone know if the overland trip from Siam Reap is a nightmare or bearable? I've read it can be impassable! ...

Still confused about Thai Visa

Posted by chris123 on 23/4/2007 at 17:09

I fly into Bangkok as the first stage of a RTW trip. However the next flight in our itinerary is from Singapore - we had intended to travel overland to Hanoi and get a flight from there to Singapore. This will all be in space of three weeks. We have a similar situation on our way home, where we are again flying into Bangkok but our homeward flight, 3 weeks later, is out of Singapore. In this period, we do not plan to leave Thailand until getting a flight to S'pore. The way I understand ...

Changes to Thai visa regulations

Posted by somtam2000 on 16/4/2007 at 13:14

There's a long, long, long discussion over at ThaiVisa about those entering Thailand under the 30-day visa free entry method. A theoretical requirement of this type of entry has always been that the person have an onwards ticket out of Thailand and 10,000B. I say theoretical in that in the past these requirements were never checked. It seems that has changed. As of early April, there are reports particularly at the Poipet border crossing between Thailand and Cambodia that the onwards ti ...

Laos Thailand border crossing

Posted by steveandlesley on 28/3/2007 at 22:25

We are soon to undertake an eight week trip in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thialand. I am trying to find out if it is easy to get from Pakxe to Ubon Ratchathani (then catch a train to Bangkok). I understand there is a border crossing near to Pakxe. Is it easy to cross at this point. We will need to get Thai visas at the border crossing, but I understand this shouldnt be a problem as we are already booked on a flight out of Thailand. Any help, advice etc, would be much apreciated. Steve ...

Pre-organising Visa's

Posted by drutherford on 5/2/2007 at 09:06

Hi We're going to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam all by bus/train (apart from initial entry into Bangkok airport). I have read alot of threads about getting visa's at border crossings but I was wondering whether it is worth trying to pre-organise these visa's before we leave from our trip from the embassy's in Australia just for peace of mind. Also, we are planning on arriving in Thailand and spening about 2-3 weeks up North before travelling through the other countries, but then ...

Is it possible to cross from SW Vietnam to Thailand by boat?

Posted by juekennedy on 31/1/2007 at 09:52

I'd like to spend a few days in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam before hitting some of the islands in the Gulf of Thailand - Phu Quoc (Vietnamese) and Ko Chang (Thailand). It seems daft to return inland when the islands are so close together (plus the added expense of paying the Cambodian visa again). Does anyone know if there is a way through? Thanks very much. ...

Cambodian Visa question re: 6 month validity on Passport requirement

Posted by bumblenut on 22/1/2007 at 19:39

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has had any issues entering Cambodia with less than 6 months validity left on their passport. My current Canadian passport expires in July and I would like to visit Cambodia next week. The Cambodian Ministry of tourism site states that a passport valid for six months is required. I have read elsewhere online that a passport valid for 4 months is required and also that only valid passport is required. I would be able to provide evidence of a return fli ...

Posted by zmerchant on 6/1/2007 at 12:23

Hello. I am planning a trip across the "Travelfish" region beginning later this month, and am about to send off my Vietnam visa app. Then I ran across this site: I think the article is from Sep, 2005. "...foreigners and Vietnamese nationals bearing foreign passports who want to enter and stay in Phu Quoc Island for less than 15 days will be exempt from visa application. Those who enter Vietnam through an international b ...
