Next day, we had arranged for a minivan to pick us up from the mainland Thailand, to the Cambodian border.

So right after breakfast, we took the speedboat back the the mainland, where our driver picked us up, and took us to the border crossing into the Kingdom Cambodia at Aranyaprathet, Thailand/Poipet, Cambodia.

Here, the minivan stopped, and let us off. After paying the driver, we walked over to the Thai immigration exit office, got our passports stamped for the exit, and then walked over to the Kingdom of Cambodia border; where since we had pre-paid for visa’s, we went to the lineup where we waited for about 20mins in line and got our entry stamp validating our visa for Cambodia.

We then walked outside, and waited at the bus stand, for a local bus to take us to the bus terminal, where we had to wait a short while to get our bus to Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Many homes were wood homes on stilts in the countryside; there was a lot of standing water everywhere as I guess it rains a lot here.
