Or take the bus to PP, get off at the airport. Take plane. Done.

SHNV to border two way=75$
Border to BKK=???
Time to KK one way=4 hours
Time KK to BKK=??? 4-5 hours

Makes absolutely no financial sense or "time/comfort" sense, unless you're bringing back large bags full of stuff. If it's gotten that bad, I'm surprised HE hasn't clamped down on this shit.

From todays PPP........


‘Anarchic’ Poipet fees decried
Tue, 29 December 2015
Phak Seangly

New reports of border officials at Poipet International Checkpoint demanding extra from travellers crossing the border between Cambodia and Thailand have again thrown the spotlight on the oft-maligned western gateway to the Kingdom, with an opposition lawmaker pledging action to stop the “anarchy”.

From fees for a “VIP” service, to demands for money for cash-strapped guards to pay for utilities, paper and ink, the most recent complaints were “typical” of a years-long culture of irregular payments being exacted at the Banteay Meanchey province crossing, said Sum Chankea, provincial coordinator for rights group Adhoc.
