Cycling Cambodia Part 5 and Thailand Part 1

An interesting end to our time in Cambodia in contrast to Southern and Central Cambodia the North is very poor and rural. Before leaving Cambodia we visited the Preah Vihear temple which is a much fought over mountainous border area and we also stayed Anlong Veng the last strong hold of the Khmer Rouge.

We’ve cycled across the border where Pol Pot was cremated, ironically a casino now stands opposite his last resting place.

Our first impressions of Thailand, it is wealthy, they have solid structured buildings, modern shops including Tesco’s, more cars than motorbikes and people are fatter and dress in western clothes.

As our Facebook followers will know we’ve spent the last few days in a village called Surin, enjoying the Elephant Gathering which consists of an elephant banquet and a re-enactment show.

We’re planning on heading north to Chow Mien, this is about 550 miles away (Gary, we are actually heading to Chiang Mai, But the alien that has taken over Ginette’s body cant spell, Ginette – that’s not true I’m just silly enough to type what ever curly locks says)

Hope everyone is OK in the UK, please stay safe and warm, just in case you’re wondering it’s 37 degrees here and we’re not missing the British winter at all : )

love to you all

Gary and Ginette
