On the Road from Kampot to the Beach

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

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.

She had to turn left – so she stopped. I like the matching dress – yellow and black. The eye catcher? The bunny slippers!

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!
