Bus Station to Border
The border crossing to Cambodia is 6.5 km from Aranyaprathet Bus Station. This should be a 12 minute journey in a taxi or a tuk tuk along the main road running through Aranyaprathet, the Suwannason Road. A tuk tuk should charge 60 THB to 80 THB for the journey from the bus station to the border. Motorbike taxis charge around 40 THB for the same journey. In a shared pick up truck taxi, called a ‘songthaew’ in Thailand (pronounced ‘song-tao‘), should cost 15 THB although as a foreign visitor you may be charged more. Always agree the price before you start the journey and never go with a tout insisting that you take the ‘Government Bus’ to the border. This is a scam.
The border crossing is open from 08.00 to 20.00 every day. Do not forget to bring a passport photograph and only use the official Thailand and Cambodia Immigration desks. Once you have entered Cambodia you arrive in the Cambodian town of Poipet. Siem Reap, the town adjacent to the famous Angkhor Wat temple complex, is a 3 hour bus journey away from the border.
