Forget about asking the tourist police at the Thailand/Cambodian border towns of Aranyaprathet & Poipet for help... they're in on ALL the scams!!

We finally found a nice young lad who seemed more accomodating than the rest to drive us to Siem Reap... and negotiated a good price.. before the tourist police himself came along and had WORDS with the poor boy and in the end we had to pay the 'standard' price which the other touts had quoted to us previously...

And be warned too that the driver DOESN'T drive you all the way to Siem Reap, they actually drop you off at a town halfway and you have to switch cars...

But it was all part of the experience! ;)

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
