Arrived 22nd December
Departed 27th December
Decided to head straight to the beach ready for Christmas to ensure we had somewhere decent to stay!! Night one = disaster! We checked into what can only be described as a hell hole! It was awful, called Utopia! We were literally in the garage! Several Angkor beers at Sessions Bar on the beach was the only way I could get Vicki to return and it was pretty late by that point! We slept for about 3 hours then made a hasty escape… Big Comfy beds, Air con, TV, hot shower… Come on, it is Christmas!! We spent most of our time in Sihanoukville either on Serendipity beach at sessions bar as the girls knew the guys that ran it. We had a blast on Christmas Eve and Dave lost our tab so the day and night ended up MEGA cheap! Another Bonus!
Christmas day was amazing! Santa was very good to me, as usual! We had Christmas dinner on the beach! 22 of us altogether during sunset which was just amazing! We did secret Santa too which was fun! Christmas dinner was gorgeous! Pate for starters then Turkey and all the trimmings for main followed by Chocolate brownie and ice cream! If only I wasn’t so hungover…. Grrrr! We also shared our dinner with several (like about 30!!) street kids! Pretty sad really as they literally were scavenging for any left overs on everyones plates!
Me and Vic spent a day on Otres beach which was a short tuc tuc ride away from Serendipity but much quieter and nowhere near the amount of limbless beggars or children selling bracelets!
Had a really fab time here but it’s time to get moving! Getting the overnight bus to Siem Reap!
