Cambodia seems a lot emptier than Lao. There's a lot culture and heritage sites, but in between there's not much to see (compared to Lao). Still it's incredible how friendly the Khmer people are if you know about their history, especially the Khmer Rouge.

  • Some monkeys in Ankor

  • View from the palace in Ankor Thom

Ankor is totally worth a visit, it's the temples of Indiana Jones and Serious Sam in real life!

  • Monk in Ankor

  • These guys were partying to loud electro music at 10 o'clock in the morning

The food in cambodia is very tasty, my favorite cambodian dishes are tofu Laab and Khao Lam.

  • Floating village on Mekong river in Phnom Penh

  • Khao Lam: Bamboo filled with sticky rice, coconut milk, black beans

Koh Rong

Koh Rong is a nice tiny island south of Cambodia. It's good for diving, snorkeling, chilling, especially for chilling. Most bars have a good selection of enhanced brownies and cookies :)

Bike troubles

Towing my bike (broken accelerator cable)

In the end it was a good decision to buy old Honda Win motorbikes. Not because they are very durable (they aren't). They are cheap and spare parts are available everywhere in south east asia. Commons problems where chains which came off frequently and some sparks which had to be replaced.

My bike had some big troubles with its carburator caused by some dirty gas I bought somewhere on the street.

  • My carburator was dirty

  • Four people fixing my bike (Vientiane)

Simon lost his exhaust pipe, because of the lack of inert gas welding equipment in Lao, he bought a chinese rip off. It didn't really fit, so he lost it again. But this time we found someone with good equipment who crafted a fixture.

  • Simon lost his exhaust pipe

  • Crafting a custom part which bears the exhaust pipe
