|(Fast and efficient border clearance...)|
|(Riding to Thailand border...)|
We had breakfast of bread and cold Nescafe. Around 0745 we rode towards the Laos - Thailand border abound 45km away. The Mukdahan immigration clearance was simple and fast. Once we crossed into Thailand we refueled and had breakfast at 7eleven. We rode direct to Poipet immigration Thai - Cambodian border, and clearance was with no hassle, simple and fast.

When we crossed the border we had to cover our headlamps as running lights are only used for VIPs in Cambodia. We stopped for solat at Cambodia tourism and Cultural Centre and later rode in the heavy rain to Siem Reap. After we checked-in Reaksmey Chenrias Hotel, we went to a restaurant next to the mosque on a tuk-tuk. In Cambodia the motorbike gang needs to pay for ground fees to the organizers for lodging and food.
We had an hour of foot reflexology at a spa next to our hotel...
