Cambodian and Laotian people living along the Mekong River on both sides of the border were very close and did their daily trade as brothers and sisters. Both nations are linked by their own border markets on the mouth of the eastern side of the mighty Mekong River. On Cambodia side, there is a traditional market called ‘Anlong Vil or Veun Khav’ while the other side in Lao there is the same market called ‘Veun Kham’. Both of these markets sell to each other depending on the season and the consumer. All traders have to arrange with the local authorities if they need to cross the border.
