What border coming from Cambodia?

Recommended Posts

After reading too many different opinions my head is spinning, i was almost sure we can go in visa exempt( in 2018 had - 2 SETV for 6 months + 1 visa exempt 2 weeks).

Then one guy said "6 months inside on the previous year" , is enough to get you into problems in Bangkok airports. (link at the end)

 

So i don't want to get denied and separated on the border ( Western+vietnamese), and I think going from Kampot by land.

 

What is a GOOD border, having everything we need (onward flight/hotel/20k) close to Kampot ?

 

Final destination is Surathani.

 

Thanks.

I would be incline to go via Koh Kong/Hat Lek (Trad). It is a long journey once in Thailand to get to Surat Thani. There is an airport in Trad (owned by Bangkok Airways) but the airfares are very high. If on a budget, you are probably looking at over 12 hours via Bangkok (following  about a 4-5 hour journey to Koh Kong)

OP, you're a master of suspense, I thought you're already on your way.

 

I agree with @BritTim. I've used the Koh Kong border quite a few times and I don't expect any problems entering there. In case our OP is wondering, that's the same border @ubonjoe had suggested in an earlier thread (Cham Yeam).

From kampot ur only real choice is Koh Kong, 

Others are far north and you need head to Phnom Penh first.

There is one other option I might consider. You could fly from Kampot to Siem Reap and head to a border from there. If Poipet/Aran was a friendly crossing, I might even recommend this.

Rubbish. And your suggestion taking ferry, pataya to hua hin to avoid bkk?

Nonsense. He wants to get to Surat thank. That is domestic once in Thailand.  The avoidance of bkk airport was about flying into Thailand fron OYTSIDE. Having said all that the op has about 4 threads about this topic. Now currently on south coast Cambodia. Read all his threads. Was in pp trying for setv, then here and there. Many including myself have suggested options. Even flying to Vientiane and border crossing VE. His reply $600. 

Frankly stupid to go pp for setv in first place. 4 threads about stupidity. Surprised the experts have been so tolerance. I'm awaiting another thread from op tomorrow. I might also start one.. Grow Some.

I was interested about Kampot Airport? I have only been there once but don't think there is an airport. If there is it must be a small one.

Think trat airport is owned by bangkok airways, bit like koh sumai. If so flights ridiculous expensive. 

Same when I fly bkk to go suami I always fly AA Bkk to Surat than then ferry after bus. Half price or less. The airport your asking about for op is trat.

 Hmmm.

I once worked  with a person  who  he and  is  wife had  problems  with  having  children. They resorted , with success,  to  artificial insemination. They  named  their  son  "Jack".
