My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

DMK: Siem Reap, Cambodia - Phnom Penh, Cambodia


"Don't let the silly little dramas of each day get you down. For you are here to do great things..."

Day 7 - (24/10/2012 -Wednesday)
Route: Siem Reap - Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Distance: 350km
Hotel: World Star Hotel, Phnom Penh

(Riding into Angkor Wat Complex...)
(In front of the main temple...)
(Our last visit here was in 2006...)

We checked out and rode in the drizzle to Restaurant Hj Musa for nasi goreng breakfast. Here, the riders gang forwarded some sumbangan to the Madrasah. We rode to Angkor Wat and requested permission to ride the bikes to the main temple for photo shots. Normally there was a charge of USD20 per entry but we were allowed to pass through without paying for the tickets.

(A typical small town along the way...)
(Bumpy and dusty road leading to the Capital City...)

After some photo shots, we started riding towards Phnom Penh by 1030 through the trunk road. It took us more than 8 hours to reach Phnom Penh because of bad road conditions and some mishaps along the way. Hj Din had to use the toilet at one Primary School. While waiting by the road side Bakar's bike fell. Kit’s bike fell at one patrol station because of oil spill. Another mishap was when Bakar’s bike overshot and fell to avoid an overtaking bus and a big pothole. All was well but Bakar suffered a slight bruise on his arm.

We checked-in at World Star Hotel around 1830 after a rough tiring ride on a trunk road full of pot-holes. Later we went for dinner on a tut-tut at one muslim restaurant and after, we had a 2-hour body massage for only USD8 each.
