We caught a van that was 1/2 empty & comfortable up to the small town of Banlung in northeast Cambodia. We were dropped off in front of a guesthouse that tried to rope us in, but we turned them down. There's a lake in the north part of town that we walked to & we found a guesthouse facing it. It looked like a converted house. The room didn' …
Ban Lung: also known as Dey Krahorm (red earth) because of it's rusty coloured earth. We've seen red roads everywhere in Cambodia, but here they are richer and deeper in colour. Supposedly very fertile and good for growing. Current farming schemes are rubber and cassava. Many places along the way were busy wetting down the roads in an attempt to …
... 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 ...
... seeing the condition of these ones was shocking. They just looked so so sad and tired and aching, pulling their chained feet behind in their deathly slow pace. So sad to watch but so appreciative of the elephant project we got to be a part of.

I only hope by the time I will leave this country I will leave with a perfect picture of exactly that...so i can stare at it forever!

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.
