Travel Update from Thailand & Cambodia Relation Crisis 

Issued: 31 January 2003

The night was quiet and as strange as it might be, everything seems to be back to normal in Phnom Penh. The presence of security forces in town secured the situation and we hope that both governments will keep the situation calm now and find a peaceful and amicable way to settle all. Siem reap has been quiet all along and tourists staying in Siem reap might not even be aware of what happened in Phnom Penh.

Siem Reap Airways (FT), a sister airline of Bangkok Airways, had started the flight between Pnom Penh and Siem Reap as usual since 30 January 2003. Bangkok Airways (PG) will resume its flights between Phnom Penh and Bangkok, starting 01 February 2003 onward. Only Thai International Airways refuses to start flying to Cambodia - Not before 7 February 2003.

Mekong Airlines is now flying daily between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap with a new Boeing-737, thus easing any seat availability problems.

Traffic along the Thailand & Cambodia Border Crossing drops dramatically. Thai authority does not allow any Cambodian to cross into the Thai side during this time. Although Cambodia does not impose any reciprocal approach, it seems that Thai people themselves are fearful to enter Cambodia until the situation obviously eased and resolved.
