Angkor Wat Warnings and Dangers: 69 reviews and 77 photos
For those who plan to go into Angkor Wat, using ground transportation, espsecially if you come in from Thailand, please be very careful when you cross the Thailand Cambodia border. The place is really like 'war zone'. When you arrive the custom or immigration check, please be very sure if you will need a visa to go in (you can check it in the internet, there are plenty of reliable sources). If your country permits a free entry, be very firm that you DO NOT need to pay any fees before the immigrations. I had the experience of being hassled by the police force(just before the immigrations check-up) demanding for a permit/visa fees. And when I said that Malaysian does not need a visa, he tried to quarantine me and said that I have to pay for a medical booklet. Luckily, I have read enough and insisted that Malaysian does not have to pay anything in order to get into Cambodia and I managed to pass through them without being further harrasted.
