Many of them had hired traditional dress to go around in. I did frown at one kid who was zapping people i...

Re: Free Angkor Temple Visits

They cracked down on that years ago. You cannot get in now without a ticket, even if you tell them you will stay on the roads. My house is past the old ticket gate and I got stopped every time when I was back in SR a couple of weeks ago. This is correct. The ticket police will flag down foreigners ...

Someone on FB tried that and got turned back by the ticket police. But they only start at 5am so if you're an early bird you could get in the zone, I guess.

Re: Thailand Travel Restrictions and Info

Flew SR-BKK on Friday and back again today. Both flights were completely full. AirAsia could probably justify adding more flights at this rate. Tourist area around Soi Rambuttri was absolutely packed on the evening that we wandered through there. If you don't mind me asking what is the cost of that...
