Make sure u find a way to turn OFF ur headlight in the daytime as its illegal t drive with ur light on in the daytime

BUT it is NOT illegal to drive without one at night go figure LOL

why were u turned back on the laos border? Thai bikes/cars go in and out all the time

A follow up question: Is there a charge for riding through the Cambodian crossing, say at Koh Kong, on a motorcycle/scooter? Customs or something? If I decided to stay long term could I then register my Honda Dream in Cambodia? Thanks.

yes, they tell u 100 baht/day for every day ur going to stay in Cambodia,

They will also tell you your ONLY allowed to ride in Koh Kong Province but nobody cares.

If u exit at kk they will charge you 200 baht /day over what you said u were staying so go out elsewhere.

He was turned back at the Laos/Cambodia border.

That is a notorious border where the Cambodia side often refuses entry to foreign registered vehicles without a permit. Your best bet for crossing FROM Laos into Cambodia is by driving a Lao or Cambodian registered car or bike. Vietnamese ones can now reportedly also cross this border without incident due to a new agreement. But Thai vehicles can not, so anyone crossing using a Thai vehicle would either be in possession of a permit or got lucky with an official who was lenient, but try again the next day and you may not be so lucky.

Crossing from Cambodia INTO Laos usually works out OK, even in a Thai registered vehicle. However, reportedly the Cambodian side wants to see some kind of approval to allow you to leave there, but this is based on a report by another member, edh69. He had a permit though so got through without incident.

Unfortunately, doing a search on Google reveals precious little about Cambodia/Laos crossings by vehicle, other than a 2010 report from Goanna Tracks, who had permits and crossed from Cambodia into Laos.

Crossing between Thailand and Laos directly is of course no problem at all.

prices in Cambodia for bikes is about 10-15% higher than Thailand. but not the selection for bikes over 125 cc

plenty of new/used bikes

Make sure u get a Cambodian Drivers license. Can use Lucky lucky to help you if u have a current motorcycle license.
