Where I stayed
The next day we rented a private cinema room (some English guy has downloaded thousands of films and charges people $4 a head to watch them in the viewing rooms) to watch Home Alone 2 in an attempt to try and make us feel a bit Christmassy. It was good, but the sunshine isn't really conducive to Christmas!!
The next day we headed down to the beach and happened to sit next to a film and music director who has semi-retired to Bali. He was pretty crazy. He had signed up to an Asian dating site while he was travelling so he could take girls on dates in the places he went to; he told us a few funny stories. Shane asked who he'd worked with and the list was quite impressive: Whitney Houston, Rolling Stones and Mariah Carey among others and had met Quincy Jones. His work also included shows for ABC and other stuff he couldn't remember (possibly due to his recreational drug usage)!
Sihanoukville is not somewhere we'd ever go back to, but it was a corner of Westernisation in an otherwise truly Asian country.
