  • Hey
    I would like to join with you to Don Det on 24 February from Siem riep
    I have few questions;
    1) are you going to take me exactly to the border line ? So I can make the visa to Cambogia by my self?
    2 where are you going to let me out in Don Det? Is it easy to get Don Khon?
    Tank you

    • Hi Andrea, thanks for reaching out.

      1. If I understand you correctly, you meaning to ask about the visa process to Laos. If that is the case yes, you will be dropped and doing the visa process by yourself.
      2. The drop off point at Don Det is near the Don Det Ferry. You will find the pick up and drop off point and more information about the trip here
