Dec 4, 2004 - Sihanoukville

Yesterday I took a bus to Sihanoukville in Southwest Cambodia. Sihanoukville is basically a beach town and seemed like a good place to relax for a while. My guest house I directly across the street from the beach, which is a long white sand beach that goes on forever. There are little shacks / restaurants all along the beach and the inevitable kids trying to sell you stuff. Yesterday was mostly a get settled day and I spent it reading on the beach. Today I took a tour into Ream National Park, which is mostly water and a large mangrove...

Dec 2, 2004 - Phu Quoc Island

1/12 Het Phu Quoc eiland is een echt bounty eiland en we verblijven in een schitterend resort (voor de liefhebbers: http://www.sgphuquocresort.com.vn). Het eiland is afgezien van een aantal kleine hotels en een handvol resorts totaal niet touristisch. Het was dan ook goed zoeken naar een goed uitziend restaurant, maar deze hebben we dan ook gevonden. We eten er heerlijke vis, gamba's en krab, voor 7 euro per avond. Na het avondeten gingen we op zoek naar een internetcafe. Op de weg hier naar toe werden we door een oude vrouw aangesproken...

Nov 12, 2004 - Sihanoukville, south west Cambodia

Can't type for long as have too many mosquito bites to scratch. In south west Cambodia for the thin strip of beach that Sihanoukville has to offer. Not the greatest place we've visited so cutting this stop short and going back to Phnom Penh tomorrow to catch the bus down to Saigon. Until then can be found hiding in a mid-range air conditioned hotel room watching sky movies. Next stop Vietnam.

HEI Vi har naa hatt noen late dager i Sihanouk Ville. Dette er omraadet Kambodsja haaper en gang i fremtiden vil bli deres svar paa soer-Thailand. Det er nok en god stund foer Sihanouk Ville vil faa en slik status. Riktignok finner vi fine strender her men ogsaa en del forsoepling. I tillegg saa merkes Kambodsjas enorme fattighetsproblem. Over alt paa strendene er det mennesker som enten har noe og selge eller rett og slett bare tigger. Uansett har det vaert meget interessant og oppleve strandlivet i Kambodsja. Merkelig var det aa oppleve...

Oct 13, 2004 - SIHANOUKVILLE

The beach at last!! Four hours on a bus with piped Europop and Cambodian music and I've hit the Cambodian beach resort of Sihanoukville. It's still pretty ramshackle here and the only way to get around seems to be on the back of a moto (motorbike taxi), but its white sandy beaches. Apparently its a Cambodian national holiday at the moment so its pretty packed with locals, who incidentally seem to all go swimming fully clothed - whats that all about?? Maybe I should try it and save on the laundry costs?! Not sure about the tan lines...

Aug 17, 2004 - Sihanoukville

The bus left at lunchtime and was a pretty good bus with allocated seat numbers (first time we had seent hatf or a while, and makes life so much easier). It was a pretty short trip of about 5 hours, so we arrived in the late afternoon. We hired a couple of moto drivers to show uas some of the guest houses along the beach front area which was a couple of km's out of town. After having a look at a few, we settled on the maraka, nice clean place. We settled in and sat down for some drinks and a quick bite, it was pretty cloudy so walked over...
