Hi All, Figured I'd actually post as I'll be attempting my first SEA motorbike tour at the end of the year - always keen on advice, current plan is to buy something along the lines of a Transalp/XR650L (with tax, plates, etc) in Phnom Pehn and travel around Cambodia along with visiting mates in Thailand - and potentially Laos. still deciding on routes, and whether or not I'll give vietnam a go as well (big bikes are a bit of a no-no unless you are lucky from what I've read). but my inbound is all booked - so i'm definitely doing it. I looked at shipping my bike across - but Its cheaper to sell here and buy there - unless there are hidden costs I don't know about. Something I haven't read much is the detail on 2 things - getting a Cambodian licence - From what I've read its between 10,000 riel and $65 usd and you can get it between 20 minutes and 30 days - heh. maybe too much research - but it looks like I can definitely sort something without too much drama. The other question I have is trying to find some detailed information on temporarily importing a cambodian bike into thailand, there are plenty of rough descriptions, but nothing with much detail that I've found - I tend to like to know everything - but have never taken a vehicle cross border before, i've only ever hired / bought at either side - so any in depth info would be great. Also, I intend to avoid Poipet like the plague, its bad enough crossing there by foot, if at all possible i intend to leave at Preah vihear (well the crossing near by) and return via Pailin - or vice versa. aside from that, I'm keen to post my experiences and potentially find others to share parts of my trip! also cheers for all the cool experiences I've read on this board, its really been a motivator for me to take this trip! Cheers.
