    Immigration Officials

    by pesky_tourist Updated Dec 13, 2007

    Don't know if this was due to the numerous stamps in my passport or Aranya Immigration's interpretation of Thai rules but I was hassled for about 15 minutes about not having onward travel tickets. After patiently explaining, several times, that I planned to take the train to BKK and proceed OUT of Thailand, the official grimaced and stated plainly that he would let me in "this time".

    My advice: Have onward travel tickets or grin and bear it.

    Pick-pockets! (Poipet Border)

    street of doom

    Never let your guard down...not even for a second!

    I have always been very careful especially when I first got to this border. I was quite overwhelmed by the crowd, the heat, the beggars and the touts. But somehow, the nice experience and safe journey from Siem Reap made me careless.

    I was walking ahead of my friend in this narrow pavement when she noticed a kid putting his small hands inside my bag's back pocket. She reprimanded the child and he just walked away as if nothing happened. I almost lost my digital camera in this very street. Somehow my negligence temp the child to steal something from me.
