On the Road from Kampot to the Beach

2014/03/01 at 09:13

Every country in South East Asia has some different kind of transportation. Sure there are motorbikes, cars, vans or busses. But than you have the Tuk Tuk in Thailand which you will not find in Cambodia for example. They have a similar motorbike for passenger transportation construction but it is different.
On the highway i was really surprised how they use the cars and vans now to transport load and passengers.
Here are a few Pictures

On the Road in Cambodia
Getting to my van was not so easy since it did rain in the night and there was a lot of water in front of the hotel. Managed to build a kind of bridge with the wood next to the chicken.

Guess you can not really put more on this little van

On the Road in Cambodia
They do not go really fast 70-80 Km/h

To the left towards the sea and Sihanoukville. To the right towards Phnom Penh. So this is where some people have to change transportation.

A few Pictures from Otres Beach in Sihanoukville

After a few days in Kampot Maya and Nana went down to the Otres Beach in Sihanoukville. Since i wanted to visit Terry down there i went with them.
We where lucky to find some rooms as everything was full by the time we got there. And we did find the place that was really chilled. The owner was unfriendly all the time and did not really gave a shit about nothing. He was busy most of the time with rolling joints or watching TV. But if you needed a beer he was quick to get you one – at last.
Let me give you an example. We spend most of the day at his place and got food and drinks there – and we stay there! So i got hungry in the evening and wanted to order some food. He was like “No No you where here the whole day and now i have customers and they want food!” Great so i had to wait another hour before i could order food. Even the boyfriend of Maya did complain about him and he is a local.
I guess when you are the only one with a happy menu you can behave as you please…

It was my birthday and i could not resist to get a liter of Pastis for 7 US $! How can you go wrong with that?

Otres Beach
I have no clue if that is cheap or not – but it is easy to get at last

This is my section of the menu

This is wired! A joint is 1,50 anyhow so the Magic Mushrooms are free. Strange!

Otres Beach
The girls are happy all day long. Lots of different shopping opportunities the whole day! Plus massage, manicure & pedicure – what do you need more?

One of the few that make sense! Kampot is so small that one really does not need a motorbike. I am sure 90% of the people would be faster with a bike if you factor in the time it takes them to work for the bike, repairs, replacements and gasoline!
