Next Stop Phnom Penh

We reluctantly left Koh Rong on Wednesday 5th and headed back to Sihanoukville where we were hoping to catch an onward bus to Phonm Penh.  Luckily the journey was a lot smoother than the way there, and on a much larger boat, so we didn’t suffer from any seasickness!  However, we didn’t get back to Sihanoukville till gone 2 and the 2.30 bus was full so we ended up staying one more night there.  We just wandered around town for the afternoon and spent the evening watching The Killing Fields (a film about the Khmer Rouge takeover) in a local bar.

The next day we were up bright and early to get back to the capital.  We travelled on one of the nicer buses – a big double decker with sufficient leg room for Dan to keep his legs out of the aisle!  We arrived in Phnom Penh at 2ish and got one of the many tuk tuk’s to the Europe Guesthouse, a really lovely place just near the river but somewhat close to the red light district! There were some very suspicious bars just down the road from our hotel! Click here to read more…
