CHONG CHOM (THAILAND ) / O’SMACH (CAMBODIA)
The closest border crossing to Buriram province is the Chong Chom / O’Smach border point. Chong Chom is in Surin province and O’Smach is in Cambodia. It is approximately a one and a half hour drive from Buriram City. Note, as there isn’t a Thai Embassy or Consulate in O’Smach, the Chong Chom / O’Smach border crossing is only useful for those who already have been issued a Thai visa and are leaving the country as outlined in the visa’s stipulations. At time of writing, there isn’t a dedicated bus leaving from Buriram City to Chong Chom, however, several independent casino tour companies leave from Buriram City to O’Smach daily. Please note, casino owners/operators may not be able to speak English language.
