Hello everyone! My first post here, you are all really helpfull with all my questions during travelling in south East asia! But i can't get an answer to my question if someone experienced to get from Saigon to Kratie in Cambodja in 1 day. Can someone help me? I would like to get there next sunday :) thankyou!
I wondered if any knew or had some advice about how I might travel from Can Tho in Vietnam to Kratie in Cambodia. I'm British so will need to get a Visa on arrival - are there any specific buses that will cross borders where I am able to get a Visa? I'm not 100% but I believe some ports don't let you do so.
Any advice is appreciated! Thank you in advance.
