With very full bellies we left Sea View Villa and thanked our hosts graciously. We hired a car to take us to the border town of Krong Koh Kong 300km away and not much to see or accommodation options if we chose to cycle.
The bikes were tied on to the back in typical Cambodian style. See the pictures! And the five of us squished into the back as the two drivers picked up a mate to squish into the front with them to make the return trip more exciting for them. We paid $90 USD for the big taxi and we arrived at the border after a 5 hour long car trip. That morning we had decided to cross over and had read about one place to stay 30km the other side of the border.
It was 4pm by the time we got to the border and we were a little anxious at how quickly we could clear through passport control and if we would find our destination before sunset
This now made the next day a slightly easier day because we had 30km less to cover and we had cleared the border which would have meant we couldn’t start until 7am.
Hope you’re all enjoying the Christmas rest.
