Travels 06-07: Brussels to Byron Bay via Asia travel blog





We came to this small town on the coast hoping to relax after the full on experience of Phnom Penh and that's pretty much what we did. There's not a lot to see but there are some very nice beaches and it's very undeveloped relative to Thailand's resorts- maybe what somewhere like Koh Samui would have looked like 10-15 years ago. Mosquitoes are a problem, so were some of the local vendors especially the massage ladies who are a real pain in the arse- they come up and ask if you want a massage, and when you say 'no thanks' they demand 'why not?' and argue with you about whether or not you want one for about 5 minutes. Sadly there are also a lot of landmine victims here, guys with one or several limbs missing spending their days making their way up and down the beach begging which is such a sad and unfair way for someone to live out their time.

We had a couple of decent parties here too and were recharged again after a while for another long bus journey- heading now into Vietnam.
