The place is very natural. Chicken lays its egg on the sofa in the terrace of the lodge. The food is great. The chef is definitely one of the best chef. Staff are very friendly and professional. They have good knowledge of the species in the park.

We had to get up at 2:30 the next morning to get to the airport so we had to ...
... museums but we also found ourselves as the only westerners in the village where we had ample time to read about the history of these two fascinating countries. I won't speak for Donna here but I personally knew very little about Cambodia and Vietnam prior to our visit. Of course I knew Lieutenant Dan lost his legs and Bubba never made it home to start his shrimp business but beyond that I was clueless. How exactly did the Americans manage to make such a huge mess in ...
... us to another bank where we thankfully get some funds but the limit is just 65pounds. Unfortunately when the driver drops us back he tries to charge us 10 times what we agreed. I give him what we agreed plus a tip to get him away from us, he's not happy with that - but we put down the money and walk off - discussion over. Our late lunch of spaghetti and chicken fiesta (which is actually chicken and chips) means we skip dinner ...
