That's right, the two nations are working on this issue, but nothing is negotiated or decided yet, and not anything at all about when this is supposed to start.

They have been working on that for year already, so I would be very surprised if something were to come out of this within the next few years.

Default joint visa

copy of reuters press release .

- Monday, December 17 06:52 amPHNOM PENH (Reuters) - Thailand and Cambodia agreed on Monday to allow foreign tourists to enter on a single visa.

"This means a tourist can get a visa either for Thailand or Cambodia and can visit the two nations," Cambodian Foreign Minister Hor Namhong said after signing the agreement with visiting Thai counterpart Nitya Pibulsonggram.

The deal was the first of a hoped for series also involving Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, he said.

"We want to see the five countries become one tourist destination," Hor Namhong said.

Thailand is aiming to have 15 million foreign tourists this year while Cambodia had 1.7 million last year, most of whom visited the ancient Angkor temples.

Earlier this month, Air Finland began the first commercial direct flight between Europe and Cambodia, where the tourism industry is growing 25 percent per year

A good Traveler is one who does not know where he is going to,
and a perfect Traveler does not know where he came from.
