2 countries we'll be visiting require visa's...Cambodia and Laos.

Do we need to bring our own photos to attach?

heads up bob, you don't need photos for passes to Angkor Wat anymore...they have their own cameras now and they are built into the pass.....people were counterfeiting the old style passes and reselling them, so they changed the system...

If you are stopping in Thailand first you can get them there pretty cheap. They can do them while you wait.

You do want your visa photos in advance. Most places will have a way for you to get photos there, but with more hassle. When I went to Laos, they required two photos, Cambodia required one. I always carry a couple of visa photos.

What I do - 'cos I'm the meanest man in the world - is get one passport photo - scan it, make a page in my computer of 16 pics and print it out on a nice piece of glossy photo paper.

One pair of scissors and voila! 16 passport photos. Perfect.

This is only for the poor people and the mean people. Shhh - don't tell anyone I do this. I'm pretending to be rich.

I still steal the soap from the hotels too. lol

No wonder you can afford $95 rooms in Siem Reap. Heh.
