Cambodia's new Internet based "e-visa" system

Working on the new upgrade of e-Visa lanes can be fun all the time especially when you are working near the ancient Angkor visited by millions of tourist every year. We are glad that Cambodia e-Visa has been helping to promote Cambodia tourism in the last one year. More than 25,000 travelers applied their Visa online from their country before-hand and it is becoming one of the prefered way of getting Visa by most travelers.

Featuring Cambodia e-Visa in AirAsia’s in-flight Travel 3Sixty magazine.

Travelers without e-Visa are queuing up at the on-arrival counter to apply for their Visa.

Many tourists are visiting Cambodia every year.

The French influence is strong and the long sticks of French bread are a common sight. It is our breakfast on the day going to Angkor Wat.

Miss the sunrise. One side of the pavement are under restoration.

Smiling restoration team happily at work, drawing the pavement design in detail

Maybe the drawing is just too detail ;)

Riding to Angkor Wat is great, but you need to be early and have more bread with you. Prepare to get dark.
