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…

Q5 4NR Day 04 : Chanthaburi - Koh Kong


“I like criticism. It makes me strong…” - LeBron James

(The narrowest part of Thailand)

Day 04: Wednesday, 30 Nov 2016
Route: Chanthaburi - Koh Kong
Distance: 339 km
Hotel: Koh Kong City Hotel

By 8:15 am we rode on Route 3 or AH123 direct towards the Thailand/Cambodia border. On the way we stopped at the Golden Cliff Beach Resort for some photo shots. Next stop was at the narrowest part of Thailand. 

At the border we sought the help of a Thai and a Cambodian who assisted us with all the documentations. At the Hat Lek Thailand border we stamped our passports and returned the custom declaration form. No fee was paid at the Thailand border. 

At the Cham Yeam Cambodia border we paid Baht200 for conveyance and Baht200 for passport stamp each. As a token, we gave baht200 each to the Thai and the Cambodian for the smooth border clearance.

After crossing the bridge over the Koh Kong River, we had iced sugar cane juice at the stall by the bridge. 

We checked in Koh Kong City Hotel for USD20/night for a room facing the river. After a hot shower and prayers we walked a short distance to send our dirty laundry for washing. We had lunch of seafood fried rice at the Muslim stall at foodcourt of the Dong Tung Port.

Back in the hotel we took a resting afternoon nap. Later we watched the beautiful sunset by the Koh Kong River. We fetched our laundry for USD2/kg and had mihun soup at the Muslim stall.
