Border crossing from Laos to Cambodia

For a quick overview of Cambodia provided by the BBC, click here

Our overland crossing from Laos to Cambodia was relatively uneventful. Had to pay each side's border police $1 of bribe money for them to stamp our passports, but this used to be more expensive. The bus service on the Cambodian side was pretty awful - had to change vans twice (the one that picked us up at the Laos border was very nice, the one they transferred us to at the next town was not and was crammed full of fellow tourists and a few drunk Cambodian relatives or friends of the driver. In any case, arrived in Kratie ( town of ~90 thousand located on the Mekong) before sunset and spent the night there before continuing on to the capital city.
