Despite the conclusion of hostilities between Thailand and Cambodia, the old border crossing at Preah Vihear has not yet fully reopened. Approaching from Thailand, visitors are allowed to cross the border to visit the temple ($10 fee), but not to continue onwards into Cambodia, and no visas are issued. Meanwhile, visitors from Cambodia are allowed to cross a few hundred metres into Thailand to shop at the border market (10 baht fee) but no further. Rumours continue to circulate that the border will reopen fully at some point in the not too distant future.
