Taking things Easy in Sihanoukville

Just lazing around mostly....

The remaining time in Sihanoukville is spent between Victory Hill and Independence Beach, calling at the Snake House again and various visits to Sakal's bar for lunch. The best breeze is at Independence Beach once off the road and away from the monkeys. Inland is rather humid at times and there have been thundery downpours an the odd occasion, refreshing things for a time.The currency can be confusing and I'm sure the locals play on this to their advantage! 4000 riel is exactly 1 US dollar, so working on anything smaller than 500 riel, and often at night can be somewhat amusing to some, frustrating to others. Everyone here is quite friendly. Victory Hill has a community spirit with quite a large expatriate presence, mostly Europeans, a few Aussies and some Americans.

Next...World Heritage Site at Angkor Wat, Siem Reap
