Think about it for a few minutes. And if no answer comes to your mind try again after a good night's sleep. 😉 

no you explain your reasoning, or are you saying smart looking dressed are not being stopped/refused

Would be interesting to know what Cambodia Visa OP was on, long term "business" perhaps ?

 

Most Thai consider Cambodia like the worst place on earth and can't grasp why would a foreigner go there and take the crappiest land border to cross instead of taking a plane, that's why they are always more suspicious of people crossing there and will deny most of everyone whenever possible.

There is like dozens of people being rejected specifically at Poipet everyday.

 

The rules state that you need these 3 things to cross a land border successfully visa-exempt (max twice per year) :

- print of flight ticket out of Thailand

- print of hotel booking

- 20'000 THB or equivalent in cash

 

Without this it's a lottery.

The OP does not state the date this took place.

Considering it was in December the OP was enquiring about travel from  Pattaya to Aran and the Cambodia border

Sorry for not reading carefully the post previously. 

No worries. I've been guilty of that a few times myself. 😆😆

If you knew where most of them worked prior to Poipet and the reputation that area had you might understand.

Thailand needs to learn a lesson about how to treat people who are putting money into their economy.

 

I believe there is a concerted effort by Thai immigration to create an atmosphere of uncertainty...fear...angst...unfriendly experience...to discourage some tourists and retirees...

 

The real question remains...why?

 

 

 

The same old answer. This is a third world country with a third world mentality.

Posts like that should always include pictures or at least honest descriptions of the people who have problems. Because it seems only few people have these problems... 

Really?? "Only few people"???? There are plenty of reports appearing in this forum about westerners having to deal with IOs and their hostile attitudes nearly every day, sounds like more than a few to me.
