... extremely poorly made music videos, normally filmed outside of a temple, and they contain very bad singing and dancing. They also have a lose story surrounding the song, my personal favourite has to be the princess that was stolen by a flying golden man, over and over again. Anyway, the bus drivers have no problem in playing these terrible music concoctions at full volume, it doesn't appear to be a driving distraction. Even your ipod headphones can't ...
... them. the parents were just as interested/curious) despite the videos being in English - anything to break their own boredom too no doubt. they kept talking to me in Cambodian and I would shrug and smile and they would keep talking and laughing. they were as amused at me as I was enjoying just bumming with the locals in their day to day life and distracting them a little from their discomfort. I got carried away and had assumed Id hear the commotion of the tourists leaving for the ...
... that the lake sounded like a better deal so found ourselves a guesthouse, dropped off our bags and headed straight out to explore the town and find somewhere to eat; having not eaten since breakfast, Ross was starting to fantasise about crunchy nut cornflakes again (the one food item he is really missing from home)!
Walking into town, we could instantly tell we were in a different country - having been in Southern Laos for almost two weeks it felt like being ...
... thinking of ways to get money the only logical idea is to try and find a posh hotel and hope they have a card machine and will let us have cash back?!

Money?? No problem of sorting that issue at the border. Few minutes after we found ourselves in a Kingdom of Cambodia.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBanlung Balcony Guesthouse & Restaurant
We've spent 3 weeks traveling through Cambodia and this is the best place we've stayed. A huge old building, you feel like you're in a mansion. Simple, but ample rooms with ensuite have large beautiful windows (didn't realize how much I'd missed windows!). The restaurant has a wide ranging menu at good prices including some fun Khemer things to try. It's also a really relaxed place to hang out. Friendly staff are always eager to please and help with tour and travel arrangements.
