... br> room to check mail. Nothing particularly interesting except on a
forum where someone had posted a lead on a place doing
powder-coating. Powder-coating is a treatment for metal which is
superior to paint, at least superior to any paint I'd find in
Cambodia. I called the number and the guy gave me some rough prices.
We were looking around $40 for a frame although the guy wanted to
check the frame first to be sure. For that price, it was a bargain,

even lift it.
The bike was starting to
show promise! I had a friend at my old school. He was a fan of the
old Vespas and bought a wreck to rebuild. We chatted about is and he
told me his philosophy, you had to have a hobby in Cambodia or you
drink yourself to death. This was true enough, there was no museums,
no libraries and no cultural centre. There was nothing to do apart
from a couple ...
I woke up after a pretty
lousy night's sleep. The weather was cooler but would be ferocious by
late morning, enough to cook your skin right off your face if you
stood and let it. My head was a tan colour, as were the tops of my
arms from riding the sun under the baking glare but the rest of me

Stop 2 we manage to get soup for wife, and steak and chips for me in a restaurant round the corner called the BBQ restaurant. It's very nice I reinstall bookface.

Chris being Chris, he wanted to start out our first major journey (6 hour bus journey across a country with dubious traffic laws and generally insufficient infrastructure means actually an 8.5 hour bus journey!) with a sandwich. As Cambodia has many a French connection, they sell lots of reasonably nice baguettes here. For safety reasons, please be aware when buying from a tiny little cart in the bus station, there is no electricity to the cart, and so the hygiene of the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsColonial Mansion - Serviced Apartment Phnom Penh
My recent stay at Colonial Mansions was to say the least extremely disappointing. I have in the past been a long stay guest and for the most part very happy. Having stayed there I do know the layout of the property and surrounding environment. There is major construction in the immediate vicinity; hence I requested a room away from the construction area!
This was confirmed in writing along with the rate.
Upon my arrival there was no record of my booking, the rate or my request!
After a lengthy wait at reception I was escorted to quite possibly the noisiest room in the property. Being the middle of the day I was not overly concerned, but what a big mistake this was!
To my surprise the adjacent construction was a 24-hour operation and an unbelievably noisy one at that. Apart from the relentless noise the windows did not close properly and allowed the noise to penetrate very easily.
This was possibly the worst nights sleep (or lack of it) I have ever had.
I have brought this to the managements attention and have ignored me completely! Their silence is as deafening as the nearby construction noise and is completely unacceptable.
This construction will be ongoing for several years, in my opinion this property should be closed while the construction is ongoing, it really is unbearable. I will never stay there again.
