Poipet Or Battambang to Kamrieng

Post by hoorah » Sat May 28, 2016 2:00 am

Hey Guys,
i will be entering Poipet from Thailand sometime on Monday (Haven't worked out best time yet) I need to get a hotel and be at Kamrieng (Thai Border crossing) by 10AM Tuesday.

How on earth am i gonna do this? I can't find any hotels online around Kamrieng (not bookable online anyway) just Battambang and Poipet (not much).

Will I have to go to Battambang and stay there monday night and leave for Kamrieng in the morning? Can i go straight from Poipet and theres a hotel nearby Kamrieng thats bookable by card online?

Options please and prices, i;m unemployed on a strict budget with visa issues.

Why Kamrieng?

Prum (Phum?) is already in the middle of nowhere. There's a regular taxi service to the border at Prum and a bus to Pailin.

Has to be Kamrieng.

Bus from Battambang to Pailin? That would be better, Kamrieng is about 40km away from Pailin according to Google Maps. Price and time of bus and from where? How much would a taxi or tuktuk cost from Pailin to Kamrieng?

Poi Pet to Batt 2-3 hours, shared taxi or bus
shared taxi's do the 90 minute run Batt - Pailin to the border

There's always gh's everywhere.
