Goodbye Cambodia, Hello Laos!
March 19, 2014

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 About 40 minutes after the sun we got up as well. We enjoyed breakfast at Ponika’s Place again, after which we went back to our hotel to check out and headed towards the Cambodia-Laos border. Just before heading to the border we took the turn-off to a river ramp where we […]

Stung Treng
March 17, 2014

Monday, March 17, 2014 The hotel selection here was very limited, so that made it easy to find the best hotel in town, Gold River Hotel. Tripadvisor recommended a cafe located on the outskirts of town, and that is where we had lunch. A very cool garden cafe/pub/restaurant ‘Guitar Milk’, lovely spot to unwind. Pity […]

Kratie to Stung Treng
March 15, 2014

Saturday, March 15, 2014 We had rain and thunderstorms overnight, which was a little exciting. We got a late start, but the plan for the day only called for 3 hours of driving. And the plan was right for once. The road was in excellent shape and we made good speed to Sen Monorom. The […]

Kratie
March 13, 2014

Thursday, March 13, 2014 After having picked up our Chinese visas, we headed off to Kratie, the long way around. Ok, we got lost, but only twice. I think our GPS got confused; actually our GPS got confused twice. Once it thought there was a bridge, when in fact there was none and the second […]

Phnom Penh
March 7, 2014

Friday, March 7, 2014 What a long day. After we left the temple and regained National Highway No. 6 we had only 180 kms to go to Phnom Penh. We had heard the road was in bad shape, but we did not expect the journey to take 5 hours. There was construction almost the entire […]

Sambor Prei Kuk Complex
March 7, 2014

Friday, March 7, 2014 We had an early dinner yesterday and went out in search of a bar for a few drinks, which we found just around the corner from our hotel. At the first place we walked into (open air) we got quizzical looks and there was confusion whether the place was open or […]

Prasat Preah Vihear Temple
March 6, 2014

Thursday, March 6, 2014 Up early again to beat the late morning heat. We were only 40 kms from the temple entrance, so also planned to beat the other tourists. The drive to reach the temple was a bit challenging, as the road was quite steep near the top. Nothing Sterlin could not handle. We […]

Beng Mealea and Koh Ker Temples
March 5, 2014

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 What a great day today. Alarm went off at 5:30 and we took breakfast just after 6am. We had a big day ahead and wanted to get a good breakfast and still get away early. At 7am we were on the streets, which is quite impressive for us. The plan for […]

Angkor Wat and Siem Reap
March 1, 2014

Saturday, March 1, 2014 The road from Banteay Chhmar to Samraong was, despite being under construction, quite a bit better than the road under construction from the previous day. And from Samraong to Siem Reap it was fine – apart from the occasional unannounced pothole – never get complacent. Arriving in Siem Reap, the gateway […]

Sisophon and Banteay Chhmar
March 1, 2014

Friday, February 28, 2014 After a very good morning visiting 3 sites in the vicinity of Battambang followed with lunch there, we drove on to Sisophon. The town mostly acts as a travelers’s stop between Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) and the Thailand border and consequently doesn’t have much to offer. We were just after a […]

Battambang
February 27, 2014

Thursday, February 27, 2014 Goodbye Thailand – Hello Cambodia!!! We left our border hotel in Aranyaprathet relatively early, and, after getting a coffee and spending the last of our Bahts on fuel, we headed towards the border. The whole process of leaving Thailand and entering Cambodia was easy and took about 1.5 hours. Details can […]

Logisitics

This post is about the government documentation we needed and obtained to bring our car and ourselves into Cambodia. Cambodia in General There is not a lot on the Cambodian customs website on the process to temporarily import a vehicle into Cambodia. But there was some useful information on “Jon and Jude | Lost + […]
