Some people get in for the 20 usd especially if they have numerous Cambodian visas in their pp. What I see is the vast majority paying 1000 baht to 1200 baht for the visa and if your doing a u-turn another 300 baht on top.

At the small border crossing I would pay a few hundred baht to reenter to the Cambodian officials "because I wasn't staying overnight" . I thought I would rather not argue over a relatively small bribe to get the whole lot over with and get back home safely.

Years ago (2005/06) I was told at the Cambodian Immigration desk (the guy who stamps you in/out at the same time) that the extra was because they knew you weren't staying in Cambodia. He told me that if I were to stay a day (or more) the extra fee wouldn't be charged. At that time I believe it was only an extra 200 baht.

Get a Cambodian evisa next time, and theres no tea money to pay. It is what it is with these border runs and you deal with them as you so wish. One prick before wanted to sell me a Thai immigration card for 200 baht.

Two more Brits just made a border hop. Both were denied entry for 20 usd. They had to pay 1200 baht and 300 on the u-turn.

For a border run they have you by the gonads.

The 300 baht u-turn has become a standard "fine".

The Cambodian immigration people at the border near Koh kong have a great racket going. They wont accept $20, insisting on 1,000 baht, the bitch on the counter even told me to go back into Trat and use an ATM to get more thai money. She eventually accepted $20 and 500 baht, which was all i had.

Locals in KK said she had been doing it for years, had a huge house and they were all in on it. lots of complaints but nothing ever done. I sent an email to Cambodian Immigration and the PP newspaper, of course nothing happened.

After clearing immigration into Cambodia...I ran the gauntlet...narrow passage way...where young Cambodian men were singling out foreigners...herding them into a makeshift police office equipped with one desk and chair...occupied by a man in uniform...and charging 1500 baht to secure safe passage to the bus terminals and taxi stand...all were glad to pay...also were escorted past what I suppose was a customs check...and straight to the transportation hub...anyone else experience this extra expense...?

I go there many years already. always pay 1100 baht and at the U-turn 300 baht.

Only 1 time they asked at the U-turn 400 baht.

I was surprised , but 400 baht it was.

All other times after that it was always 300 baht again. without any hassle.

it means that I paid to much (1100 baht) despite all the Cambodian visas in my passport.

I will see how to do next time.
