cheap. For sure the best option if obliged to sleep in Poipet. USD12 for a big air-con room with hot water shower.

violent crime

, pretentious, no Internet. Stay Safe Like most of Southeast Asia, ''unprovoked'' violent crime is not rife. However, being foreign and out at night could be construed as sufficient provocation. During the day, one can wander through the town and its slums without fear of a beating. Being robbed more subtly via scams and pickpockets is a different matter. Any visitor should explore Poipet with the expectation of spending more than reasonable and also of losing the contents of his pockets. Wear

Understand thumb 650px The border zone with tout zones highlighted (Image:Border Poipet.png) In the view of most travellers "a dump", Poipet hosts a bewildering array of touts, beggars, thieves and dodgy casinos for day tripping Thais, which all contrive to separate money from the unwary. The town has one main street that runs approximately southeast from the roundabout at the immigration offices. North of this street

Get in From elsewhere in Cambodia Poipet is a large town that is well connected with reasonably priced buses to various points in the country. The three major cities of Phnom Penh, Battambang and Siem Reap (USD3.75 ''to'' Poipet USD5 ''from'' Poipet) are each directly connected to Poipet. Note, if on a bus

, tuk-tuk drivers will be waiting. A fare within town should be USD1, though Siem Reap is easily covered on foot. Bus From the Tourist Passenger International Terminal a bus to Siem Reap costs USD9 per person and takes around three hours. You may arrive a couple of kilometres outside central Siem Reap, where tuk-tuk drivers pay the cartel for access to arriving tourists. They recoup their money by taking tourists to commission paying accommodation, which they may offer to do very

Taxis An "official" taxi to Siem Reap costs an offensive 2,400 baht. The police-enforced cartel takes USD25 per taxi per trip. Negotiation is very difficult but should be possible given that a taxi outside the cartel should cost about USD30. Negotiate the price in dollars, baht prices tend to be inflated.

carrying

at this border is generally unproblematic. The porters that swarm over your luggage as soon as it's out off the bus are only trying to get a fare for carrying it to the Thai side. They will generally not steal from it, but it's best to keep your valuables on you. Their services (USD1) can be appreciated on a hot day if the queues are long. From Thailand

There is also the free bus to the transportation depot, which is perhaps a false friend. Spending time in Poipet involves being hassled, scammed and frustrated.

Poipet

'''Poipet''' is a Cambodian town on the Cambodia Thailand border, in Ou Chrov district, Banteay Meanchey Province. It is a key crossing point between the two countries, and also extremely popular as a gambling destination as gambling is popular, but illegal in Thailand. There is a strip of casinos and hotels between the Cambodian and Thai passport control counters, enabling Thais to gamble in Cambodia without needing to go through Cambodian immigration. This casino strip area is a 'special zone' that prevents Cambodians from gambling. There is another border on the Cambodian side of this strip area that one needs to pass before being free to travel within the rest of the country.

Poipet is adjacent to the town of Aranya Pratet on the Thai side of the border. Poipet's population has increased from 43,366 in the 1998 census to 89,549 in the 2008 census, making it the 4th most populous settlement in Cambodia just ahead of Sihanoukville and larger than its provincial capital Sisophon. http: www.citypopulation.de Cambodia.html
