Cambodian Beach Time

Sihanokville, Cambodia

In Siem Reap and then in Phnom Penh, we were advised to check out Sihanoukville on the coast before leaving Cambodia. We decided to do this and have not regretted the decision. This relatively new coastal resort provided some well earned beach time after all the cultural experiences we have had. We found our little spot on the beach to rest up for the next six days; a treehouse outside the Sessions Bar. Mafia style, we didn't need to move all day - even beers at 35p were winched up on a bucket. On one occasion we spent 8 hours up there without leaving, even for the toilet in Dan's case.

On the 31st we went to an awesome Halloween party at a local bar. It seemed everyone in the resort turned up and made it a great night. In the day, we went shopping in the local market in the hope of finding an outfit and eventually went for a Rambo costume using combat trousers, a black vest (Sean opted for one with the grim reaper on it so looked like he had just left a rock concert), and arm/headbands made from torn curtain. The effort paid off as we managed to win the fancy dress competition - securing three free t-shirts (for Sean to shake off the rock concert look) and a $20 bar tab that easily covered that night's drinks.

We are heading off to Vietnam tomorrow on a 10 hour bus journey so lets see how that goes. Until next time, take it easy. (KC)
