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…

Day 04: 9 February 2015
Route: Koh Kong – Sihanoukville
Distance: 234 km

Sihanoukville is also known as Kompong Som. It is a coastal city in Cambodia and the capital city of Sihanoukville province, located at the tip of an elevated peninsular in the Gulf of Thailand. The city is flanked by an almost uninterrupted string of beaches along its entire coastline and coastal marshlands bordering the Ream National Park in the East.

The city named in honor of former king Norodom Sihanouk, is popular for back-packers. Its many beaches and nearby islands make it Cambodia's premier Seaside resort with steadily rising numbers of tourists.

We stayed a night at O’Chheuteal Beach. The beach is a 3.3 km long strip of white sand beach lined with Casuarina and Tamarisk trees, grass umbrellas, rental chairs and around 30 standardized beach huts which serve meals and drinks, some serve also as night-time party spot. The Southern half of the beach remains undeveloped.
