on the road again… Siem Reap, here we come

a much quieter day today with a 7 hr drive to Cambodia’s major drawcard.  Along with the inevitable organised stops at roadside markets and rest stops we were treated to mostly smooth driving (there are a few sections that are under repair an pretty bumpy… the wet season doesn’t treat the highway well) and it is obvious that the link between the two major cities is on the continual improve. The real surprise though was our arrival at the Royal Crown Hotel… this is one flash place and porters could not do enough to help us settle in… cool flannels, luggage ferried, digital registration just the start. The roof top bar has a great view, the pool a refreshing salty tang and we are a 5 minute walk to the old market centre. Prices are cheaper here than Phnom Penh with main meals 3USD on average and souvenirs (yep, more shopping) cheaper. Haggling is getting better and lots of laughter for everyone involved…. and then there are those sucking fish. Frustratingly, there’s been a malfunction with my memory card (needs re-formatting?) so only a few photo offerings today. Thankfully I have a new card for use at Ankor Wat tomorrow.

until then, good night
