  1. Hi all! I'm planning a roadtrip where I would buy a scooter (Yamaha Nuovo) in Saigon and ride through Cambodia all the way to Koh Chang in Thailand. Now, I did my fair share of research and it looks like crossing the Vietnam/Cambodia border will be a breeze, so that's good news. Bad news is, crossing the Cambodia/Thai border in Cham Yeam (South, near Trat) will be a whole new ballgame and pretty much impossible. Is this correct? Looks like they won't let me in with the bike if I don't produce a temporary import permit which states that I need to return the bike at one point, which I'm not planning on doing. My plan is to gift the bike to a local in Thailand before leaving by plane from BKK. Now, I've also seen some blog where some lucky travelers were able to cross without issue (2 Honda win), as seen here: https://twomonkeystravelgroup.com/motorbike-trip-across-cambodia-to-thailand/#comment-313982 What are my chances? Worst case scenario, I will leave/sell the bike a the border and take a mini bus to Trat/Koh Chang. Cheers and thanks for the help!
  2. Hi all! I'm contemplating doing a short hope in Issan during my next trip in Jan 2020. I'll be coming from a week in Koh Chang and a few days in Pattaya but I wanted to see something different before finishing the trip in BKK. I've seen that there are direct flights to both Udon Thani and Khon Kaen from Pattaya airport and thought why the hell not. I'm 30yo, looking to see some less touristic part of Thailand, some place where you feel a bit more like an oddity than Patt or BKK. Still, I’m looking for somewhat of a nightlife as I’m more of a night owl than an early riser. I understand it will be nowhere as vibrant as P. or BKK but I’ve seen some nice bars and clubs in both Khon Kaen and Udon Thani. I'm especially drawn towards those Thai clubs with Live music/shows. Initially, I only thought about doing 3 nights in UT but Khon Kaen grabbed my attention being a big student town with even less tourists than UT. Is Khon Kaen worth it in that regard? Is the city nice? Should I do 1 or 2 nights there or should I just focus on Udon Thani for 3 nights. Thanks for the help! Cheers
