What we did ...

4) Buy only the minibus to the border and then do the visa and take taxi to Siem Reap for your account.

How it works: Getting in Aranya Prathet , The border city minibus for a bit before the border, in a "agency" partner them, you go down, some lads agency trying to convince you to do because to them, paying more ($ 30 to $ 40), but not accepted, thank, says that already has seen, not to cause stress and follow with your suitcase walking for less than 10 minutes to the border, cross the border of Thailand, drive to the border of Cambodia, get seen easily (U 100 + $ 20 + 1 foto 3X4), saia da sala do visto, ande alguns passos, preencha um formulário de entrada no Cambodia que vão te dar, pegue o carimbo no passaporte e saía da imigração. ฿ 1 photo + 3X4), exit the room visa, walk a few steps, fill out an entry form in Cambodia that will give you, get a stamp in the passport and out of immigration. Walk a little further, follow the flow of tourists and take a free shuttle bus that takes you to the bus station. There is a booth that sells bus pass (U $ 9) or taxi ($ 12) to Siem Reap. When negotiating the taxi, talk that is expensive and do that will get another taxi outside the station. Even though he speaks that taxis are not safe out there, be firm in the proposal and so he always lowers. We pay $ 10 per person for a taxi for 4 people, with no difficulty and not much bargaining. Okay, it was all very easy, much more than we imagined.

Visas in SE Asia

2005-03-12 18:44:32 by susak7

Does anybody know if it is posible to get visas for other SE Asian countries in Hong Kong? Has anybody done it, not just heard about it? I am not a US citizen, so need visas for most countries that's why. Thai consulate is in LA, and I don't feel like going there and don't feel like paying the visa agencies 75$ to take care of it for me, but will be in Hong Kong for two weeks, and have the time there to do it.
Also, is it posible to organize visits to Angkor Wat from Bangkok. I am going alone, so I am thinking of an already organized tour through a local agency. Anybody knows anything about this?
Thank you all very much in advance.
