Ride day 41: Pursat to Battambang

9 August 2016 Waking up from a broken nights sleep to stale fag smoke is not ideal. Luckily there is breakfast and some pool time to look forward to. As we head down to the buffet breakfast we are sadly once again disappointed by a very weak series of breakfast options. The fruit was as […]

Ride day 40: Phnom Penh to Pursat

8 August 2016 For our last morning in Phnom Penh we were up early and down for breakfast in the hotel just after 8am. The reason, well, we wanted to go see the Royal palace which is apparently open 24 hours a day. The exception to this was the last two days, which it was […]

Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is the vibrant capital of Cambodia and sits at the crossing of the Mekong and Tonlé Sap rivers. It was a hub for both the Khmer Empire and French colonialists which is reflected in its rich and mixed architecture. The opulent Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum is situated off the large […]

Ride day 39: Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh

5 August 2016 Sihanoukville is somewhere that we both wanted to go, but felt disappointed by our experience. Perhaps the weather and the fact it was off peak season added to it; but we found the centre touristy, commercial and sleazy with all the dirty casinos and hostess bars. I’m sure the beaches and islands […]

Ride day 38: Kampot to Sihanoukville

4 August 2016 It’s hard to get up and out of the comfy bed of Kampot Manor. We finally drag ourselves up and have a nice relaxing breakfast on the balcony, followed by a quick pack up and a chat to Dave before we head off. There was a very light shower coming down as […]

Ride day 37: Kampot to Kep Loop

3 August 2016 Such a fantastic nights sleep in the comfy bed of Kampot Manor Guest House. So comfy in fact, that we decide to stay another night. So after breakfast on the balcony, we have to move rooms before heading out for the day. David (the owner) recommends a route along dirt track out […]


Kampot is situated in south Cambodia nearing the coast of the Gulf of Thailand, the Teuk Chhou River runs through its centre. Known for its French colonial architecture, it’s a popular tourist spot.

Ride day 36: Ha Tien to Kampot (across the border to Cambodia)

1 August 2016 We are both awake early to the loud artificial bird calls from the speaker over the roads it was a fairly disturbed nights sleep due to the late and loud karaoke from the wedding in the next street. We head out to get the bikes serviced (oil change and everything tightened, checked and oiled) […]
