    Chong Mk border crossing

    Just been to Chong Mek for a visa run.

    Just in case any else goes there is nothing over the border now all the markets have been demolished and the duty-free hasn't anything worth buying.

    Used to be a nice little trip, looking around market etc, taking a load of locals, so they could bring back all my duty-free, and then off to Pattaya noi.

    I usually get an O visa but they've been doing a 2-month holiday visa and pretty cheap, only admin charges and the consulate can't do the multiple entries now has to be sent off to London.

    Chong Mek died as a market town when the Lao Government, for some reason stopped farangs crossing on the 20 Baht system, no visa required.
    Place used to be full of day tourists [farangs] buying booze, cigs and other stuff, the Laos have stopped other crossing, Mekong Mun river and the Market near Buntharik.

    Guess they thought farangs would pay for a visa no matter what, but they stopped coining, was there about 2 weeks ago.

    Just thinking about you James, haven't seen you around in a while, miss your farming threads.

    Haven't been the in a couple of years the place was abysmal.
