Phnom Penh, Cambodia

After a rather bumpy coach journey which involved more bloody Asian Kareoke (only it didnt set on fire this time) we arrived in Phnom Penh.

Before we’d even got off the coach i could hear people shouting “tuk tuk”. Al got off before me and i let a few Australian girls get off in front of me, mainly because they were hot, haha. Getting instantly hassled by tuk tuk drivers and knowing they would try and charge us a fortune i went over to the Australian girls and the english guy they were travelling with and asked them where they were going and whether they wanted to share a tuk tuk to keep the costs down. Eventually agreeing a price we piled into this tuk tuk. There was barely room to breath, bags piled on top of us, hanging over the sides, either way we got to our hostel and got there cheap!

We’d decided to stay at #9 guesthouse by the lakeside as we’d read it was pretty relaxed and a little bit away from the hussle and bustle of the city. Coincidentally thats where the girls and Rikin were planning to stay. The guest house was really cool, it was built mainly on the lake itself on stilts and our room was right on the lake front. Once checked in, Al and I went to investigate the bar situation and it turned out that they had a sun deck with hammocks and the most comfortable seats i have ever sat on. We had some food from the guesthouse snack bar and chatted to some local kids who were trying to sell us a ride on their boats for “only one dollar”, everything in this bloody country is $1. Needless to say we spent the rest of the day…and night sat there and watched a really nice sunset whilst chilling out with a few beers and our new friends.
