Traveling in Times of Coronavirus

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Hi, has anyone been tested at Chak Angre instead of Khmer Soviet hospital? What were the queues like?

If I check on google maps i see Chak Angre Poly clinic and Chak Angre Health centre - I am assuming the latter is where the test is to be done?

I heard the queues in Khmer Soviet can be horrendous so wanted to avoid that if possible

I went to the KSFH and it was ok. Took about 15 minutes to get processed and about the same waiting for the test. Go before 10am and TAKE CASH, no cards or deduction from your deposit. $130 is what they will demand.

They wont tell you if you are negative but if you are positive they'll just hunt you down in hazmat gear, so be where you are supposed to be for at least 48 hours after test.

Have fun...

Land borders in Cambodia and Laos are all officially closed. Yet, it seems that there are ways and means for certain people to cross the frontiers.

On October 15, 2020, at 12:20 PM, the Trapeang Kriel International Border Crossing Police Station (Cambodia) cooperated with Chattalysak officers (Laos) to inspect and facilitate the departure of 3 Chinese nationals from Cambodia to go to work in Laos.

Who says no deposit ? Lol, I know that border crossing quite well, and I am pretty sure that there was some sort of "deposit" paid at the border on both sides. Even before covid, that border gate was known for demanding extra cash to go through.
After that, the foreigners are probably confined in a hotel at Stung Treng for 24h awaiting the covid test results. I don't have a problem with that, do you ?

What intrigues me is that although the border with Laos is officially closed, we have seen regular info about foreigners arriving or leaving through this border gate. Officially, all land borders between Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam are still closed to westerners AFAIK.
