Visa requirements and price:
Issuance of a visa on arrival at the airports and international border crossings is relatively quick and easy, taking about 20-30 minutes. One 4x6 photo is required and if coming via plane then you just hand in your passport with photo and the Immigration form. The take at one window then you pay at the next window where they call your name out. Only normally takes 5 minutes then proceed to the immigration & out to the luggage. The airport is nice and new and easy to get around with free internet at the departure lounge to use. Internet is everywhere in Phnom Penh and quick broadband. Its amazing to see even western countries like NZ and Australia still make you pay and the broadband network not as good as Thailand or Cambodia still as at April 2011. In fact in NZ it costs far too much???.
The Mekong River front has many Guesthouses & Hotels
Renew visas through a travel agent or the ‘Immigration Department’ on Confederation de Russie (‘Airport Road’), located opposite Phnom Penh International Airport. Tel: 012-581558. Fax: 023-890380.

the border via Anlong Veng town. 5-8 hour trip on a rough
road from Siem Reap to the border. Price in a pick-up truck:

Border Scams Cambodian border guards & touts, especially at Koh Kong and Poipet. Drivers and touts will insist that you need their help to obtain a visa--crap. Don't let touts take you to the bus saying they work for the company. They will put you on the bus, you then pay and they run away. The visa process is easy, straightforward and do-it-yourself. The guards may charge 50 baht for a SARS form. The form may be required, but it is free. Immigration police try to overcharge 100-300 baht for the visa, or charge 100 baht for the normally free exit/entry stamp. Ask for a receipt or bycet".

The trip takes 6-7 hours from the Thai border to Siem Reap & the road is crap [ See Story ]. From Sa Kaew, an overland tour starts from 8000 baht for a 3 day trip.

Tickets are purchased at the main entrance to Angkor Wat, 7km from town. Motorcycle taxis are everywhere & a full day to Khmer temples is about $6 per day. The motorcyclists will wait for you but check the big 3: the Banyan forest temple, Uncle Tom then Angkor Wat and you really have seen them then. We did it in less than a day. Remember lots of beggars are there and food is expensive but plenty of stalls for bottled water and drinks etc.
When crossing the border from Thailand, touts for vans to Sihanoukville will approach you, claiming their van is about to leave. Vans only leave when full, regardless of tout’s claims 5 - 7 hours. 600 baht. Faster on a motorcycle if you have but roads not that good in the wet season May onwards.
Koh Kong to/from Sihanoukville by ferry ferries run daily in both directions between Sihanoukville and Koh Kong. Takes 3 1/2 - 4 hours. US$12-$15 for foreigners. (Tickets are cheaper at guesthouses than at the ferry). From Sihanoukville to Koh Kong: The speedboat departs 12:00noon daily from the ‘Port of Passenger Ship’, near the Port of Sihanoukville, just off Hun Sen Beach Dr. 1km from Phe Rd. Tell your motodup driver ‘Koh Kong’ and he will know that you mean the Koh Kong ferry dock. The boat makes three stops. Get off at the second stop (Rak Long). The ferry arrives in Koh Kong at 4PM and the border closes 5PM so be quick.
