Exclamation Bordernews Laos to Cambodia

Hello!

News from overland border crossing Laos to Cambodia.

At Khong, down south of Laos there is the only legal landborder from Laos to Cambodia. It is a little bit difficult to find the right way to the border, because they have a massive roadwork on the run.
Brandnew is the fact, that they do Visas for Cambodia there now! It only costs 30$, only 10$ more then normal. And that is fair enough, I think.

Meaby we get a problem when we leave the country because they don’t give us import papers for our bike. We show them our Carnet, but they say, they are not allowed, and other papers they don’t have. So we try and try, but even when we make a lot of pressure: We don’t get any papers for the bike! See what happen in 3 days when we leave to Thailand.

On the Lao borderside, they charge 1$ per Passport. They (and we) know that this isn’t official, but they otherwise they don’t stamp your passport, so…………….

Exactly the same on the Cambodian borderside. 1$ each. No way around this “sweet”.


Safe travels

check the www.GT-rider.com forum for exact details, but you can get legal in Stung Treng. There's a customs official who rides a nighthawk and who is more than happy to get your temporary import papers cleared.
From the roundabout at the boat landing, go right, over a wooden bridge and then another 100 odd meters.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
