 Aranyapathet and Poipet Border
It is no longer any more about the land crossing into Cambodia from Thailand at Aranyapathet-Poipet Border. From Bangkok, "Aranyaprathet" is over 200 km from Bangkok to the West. It takes around 2.5 - 3 hours drive from Bangkok.

Most overland travelers from Thailand to Siem Reap enter Cambodia through the Poipet/ Aranyaprathet border crossing. The route is popular and well-traveled.

Aranyaprathet (อรัญประเทศ, also Aran Yaprathet, Aranya Prathet, or just Aran) is a border town in Sa Kaew Province, Eastern Thailand. It is the busiest land crossing into Poipet, Cambodia, and the most convenient for onward travel to Siem Reap and the Angkor Archaeological Park

Travelers can easily take the public air-conditioned bus at the Northern Bus Terminal in Bangkok to Aranyapathet.  Bus fee is at 207 Baht for air-con and half price for non-Air Condition. Taking the train from Central Railway Station of Bangkok called "Hualumpong" is not a bad idea with two departures at 05:50 a.m. and 01:00 p.m. and arrives at 12:00 and 06:00 p.m., respectively.

From the Bus and Train Station in Aranyaprathet, the Poipet border is roughly 6 kilometers away. You can take the rickshaw to the border (or in Thai called Tuk-Tuk) at around 40-100 Baht depending upon your bargaining power. No fix rates!

The scenario of the Poipet border is a bustling market where the Thais and the Cambodians of the two sides trade with one another. From Poipet, you can either get to Siemreap or to Phnompenh.

Cambodia visa processing here is rather easy. The foreign visitors just fill in the visa application form with 1 Passport-size photo. Show your Passport and pay USD 20 or 1,000 Baht for visa fee to the Cambodian Immigration officials.  That's all the process needed to be done.

After passing through the Immigration station, you can easily spot two casinos that host the Thai gamblers who travel to Poipet for legal gambling in Cambodia. The good hotels actually the guesthouses in Poipet are mostly full in advance as they are pre-booked for these gambling group tours and/ or business or leisure travelers from Thailand.

General Advice entering into Poipet City
Aranyapathet-Poipet Border is the place where you can turn in and out and get another entry or 30 days. There is no Thai Consulate here, but rather a small Immigration post. If you wish to enter Cambodia through Poipet to travel around Cambodia and then leave at the same crossing point, be sure that your Thai visa has not been expired, or you will be given 30 days

By Car

From Bangkok, use Phahonyothin Highway to Rangsit, use overpass to Highway No.305, pass Amphoe Ongkharak, Nakhon Nayok, after that use Highway No.33, pass Amphoe Kabin Buri to Aranyaprathet. Total distance is 264 kilometres.
From Bangkok, use Highway No.1 to Hin Kong, turn right to Highway No.33, pass Nakhon Nayok, Kabin Buri to Aranyaprathet. Total distance is 295 kilometres
From Bangkok, use Highway No.304, pass Min Buri, Chachoengsao to Amphoe Phanom Sarakham, turn right at 35th kilometre, use Highway No. 304 to Kabin Buri. At 95th kilometre, turn right again to Highway No.33 to Aranyaprathet

By Bus

There are reliable and inexpensive government bus services from and to many destinations, including Bangkok (frequent), Buriram (frequent), Chachoengsao (frequent), Chanthaburi (frequent), Mukdahan, Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat) (frequent), Pattaya, Rayong, Surin, and Udon Thani. For Trat, go via Chanthaburi.
Bangkok's Don Muang Airport
To connect with Don Muang, use the Moh Chit bus services. When going to Aranyaprathet, it may be possible to save time by boarding the bus at Rangsit; the catch with this strategy is that 1st class buses won't stop there if all seats are already taken. When going to Don Muang, request to disembark directly in front of the airport.

Bangkok's Eastern Bus Terminal - Ekamai

From Ekamai, take a bus to Chachoengsao then switch to an Aranyaprathet bus. This will probably be the quickest option if you're already at (or want to get to) Ekamai, but from/to elsewhere in Bangkok it's usually faster to go direct via Moh Chit. An alternative strategy for connecting with Ekamai is to go via the Suvarnabhumi Airport bus terminal
Khao San Road
Khao San Road tourist buses are more expensive and less comfortable than government services; those to destinations in Cambodia always involve a change of vehicle at the border, and are usually full of irritating people.

By train

Four trains a day connect Aranyaprathet with Bangkok's Hualamphong Train Station. A morning train departs Hualamphong at 05:55 and arrives at 11:20 (in the opposite direction 06:40 & 11:45); an afternoon train departs Hualamphong at 13:05 and arrives at 18:05 (in the opposite direction 13:40 & 19:05). The fare is reasonable price. The train is slow but scenic - if you have time on your hands it is worth doing at least once

For those with a little time to kill, the train can be an enjoyable way to connect with both Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports. For Suvarnabhumi, go via Hua Takhe station and BMTA shuttle bus (15 baht); for Don Muang, simply switch trains at Hualamphong.

From Poipet, Cambodia

To reach Poipet from elsewhere in Cambodia, see the Poipet article. The border crossing opens at 07:00 and closes at 20:00. (There's no time difference between Cambodia and Thailand.)
Entering Thailand from Poipet is straightforward for travellers entitled to enter without a visa and for those who have obtained a visa in advance.
Nationalities entitled to visa-on-arrival facilities should note that visas are not available on arrival when entering Thailand overland from Cambodia, and should either obtain a visa in advance or else enter by air (there are visa-on-arrival facilities at all Thai international airports).

If you cross from Thailand to Cambodia in the morning, you're likely to see a long line of Thais waiting for an one-day exit stamp to gamble at the casinos in Poipet. However there's a separate line for non-Thais and in a welcome change from usual order of preference, it's quite a bit faster than the one the natives have to use - at least until mid-day, when the Khao San tourist buses arrive.

Get around

The bus terminal and the train station are very close to each other, and about 6km from the border crossing.

There are regular songthaew to the border - the ones labelled "Tesco-Lotus" - and it costs 15 Baht to get to the border. They don't take you to the consulate, or the fake border post selling the express visas. It stopped for us on the main road out of town, but you may be able to take them from near the Cement Reservoir as well.

Tuk-tuks to the border cost 50-60 baht. Don't let them stop at travel agencies along the way to get your visa, tell them you want to go to the immigration office at the border. These travel agencies are a scam and will charge you an extra "service fee" above the US$20 cost of the visa and will delay your trip by hours. The tuk-tuk driver gets a commission for leaving you at the travel agency rather than taking you all the way to the border.

Motorcycle-taxis are also readily available, and charge less than tuk-tuks.

You can take a bus to Aranyaprathet from Bangkok's Northern Bus Station (Morchit). First class and second class buses leave from the ground floor of the terminal approximately every half hour with ticket costing 207 Baht and 160 Baht respectively. If travelling in the other direction, the last bus to Bangkok leaves Aranyaprathet at around 6:00 pm. The trip takes four and a half hours but be mindful that the border crossing closes at 8:00 pm and if you arrive too close to closing time there is a chance you will be requested to provide extra US dollars before they will process your visa. Also be mindful that the shuttle bus to the transport depot ceases to run before the border crossing shuts;

Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport
There are direct first class buses from/to Suvarnabhumi - departures from Suvarnabhumi are at 08:00 & 14:30, departures from Aranyaprathet are at 09:00 & 14:30. The fare is 187 baht.
