I surprised myself at how delayed I got here in Sihanoukville, a destination with a reputation on par with Pattaya, Thailand. The seediness here is defined by creepy, old beer drinking men past their prime seeking nearly juvenile girls to accompany them at the bars. Equally unappealing are the dodgy motodops and young foreign backpackers on a non-stop mission to experiment with drugs while dancing until daylight. However; I saw a different Sihanoukville. Perhaps because we were approaching low season I was lucky enough to dodge the aforementioned scene and find tranquility chilling out on Otres Beach, or passing the evenings listening to the crashing waves while hanging at Cloud 9's cliff side bar.
After getting my fill of Western grub, including killer tacos at American owned Maybe Later; I was ready to move forward.
