Cycling Cambodia Part 4
A week of travelling by bus, sight seeing, monkey attacks and an incident with the local police
We got a bus from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh as we had already cycled this route
Visited the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh which is an amazing building
We then took a bus from Phnom Penh to Siem Reep as we had read the road was long and flat and in a poor condition. I’m not sure if it was the road conditions or the thought of eating deep fried spiders which were on offer at our first pit stop but I spent most of the journey feeling sick or throwing up yukk. Taking this short cut has bought us a little more time to play in the North of Cambodia before our visa runs out and we cycle across the border to Thailand
In Siem Reep we visited the temples where a monkey took a disliking to Gary. The temples were really interesting Gary has provided a rating for these in the main pages which can be found at the top of the page under Cambodia pages 218 to 224.
Our week was rounded by being ‘abducted’ by the local police in the middle of the night apparently they don’t like you camping even when you have permission, we were first taken to the local police station and then escorted to a local ‘guest house’, our tent arrived an hour later with the poles still attached to the tent!
hope all is well at home
