    Can I get a motorcycle from Thailand through the Cambodian and Lao boarders?

    Assuming you legally buy the motorbike and have the bike passport and other associated paperwork then no problems. GT Rider ( is by far the best resource for motorcycle riding in the region. Check their FAQ on buying a bike so you know all the steps required -- nothing too onerous. Have a fun trip -- Laos has fabulous motorbiking. about 10 years ago

    I've got 5 days to spend in Cambodia, I want to see Ankor Wat in Siem Riep and the killing fields in Phnom penh - for under US$200.00????

    No real need to do a tour - it is a very common route. With five days you could do something like get the bus from Saigon to Phnom Penh (around $10-15, takes most of the day). Overnight there, next day see Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields and fit a few cold ones in by the river. Next morning get the boat up to Siem Reap ($35ish) which gets you into SR mid afternoon. Get a single-day Angkor pass that afternoon which gives you free admission to the park after 5pm (good for sunset). Next day all day within the main park. Last day visit the stilted villages down on Tonle Sap lake - eg Kompong Khleang and grab a late afternoon flight back to Saigon. See - no need for a tour ;-) With more time, I'd suggest bus from Saigon to Chau Doc in the Mekong Delta, overnight there, then speedboat up to Phnom Penh -- it's a cracking trip -- but doesn't really fit into a five day excursion. almost 11 years ago

    Does anyone know the easiest cheapest exit point out of Bali for visa renewal to get back into Bali?

    Get a cheap flight to Singapore -- AirAsia or LionAir tend to be the cheapest, though you need to be in Indo to buy Lionair online. With the right flight combo the return trip can be done in a day. over 10 years ago
