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: Xino, Laos - Siem Reap, Cambodia


"The only time you mustn't fail is the last time you try..." - Charles F Kettering

Day 6 - (23/10/2012 -Tuesday)
Route: Xino, Laos - Mukdahan - Via Thailand trunk road – Poipet - Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Distance: 650km
Hotel: Reaksmey Chenrias Hotel, Siem Reap

(A good wash after a muddy off-roading...)
(Fast and efficient border clearance...)
(Riding to Thailand border...)

We had breakfast of bread and cold Nescafe. Around 0745 we rode towards the Laos - Thailand border abound 45km away. The Mukdahan immigration clearance was simple and fast. Once we crossed into Thailand we refueled and had breakfast at 7eleven. We rode direct to Poipet immigration Thai - Cambodian border, and clearance was with no hassle, simple and fast.

When we crossed the border we had to cover our headlamps as running lights are only used for VIPs in Cambodia. We stopped for solat at Cambodia tourism and Cultural Centre and later rode in the heavy rain to Siem Reap. After we checked-in Reaksmey Chenrias Hotel, we went to a restaurant next to the mosque on a tut-tut. In Cambodia the motorbike gang needs to pay for ground fees to the organizers for lodging and food.

We had an hour of foot reflexology at a spa next to our hotel...
