Day 05: Thursday, 01 Dec 2016Route: Koh Kong - Phnom Penh
Distance: 295 km
Hotel: Khmeroyal Hotel
After refuelling, by 8:45 am we rode towards Phnom Penh on highway 48 passing through the lonely winding road in the National Park and Cambodia’s unspoiled Cardamom Mountains Range. The road is in good condition and the ride was smooth.
By 11:30 am we reached the main junction. One road leads to the beach town of Sihanoukville. The other road, Route 4, lead to Phnom Penh. We arrived in Phnom Penh early noon. The road leading to the centre of town was busy with traffic.
We checked in Khmeroyal Hotel for USD25/night. After our showers and prayers, we walked a short distance to Warung Bali but it was closed in the afternoon. We went to a nearby Classical Halal Indian Restaurant for garlic nan and spicy fish curry. Their Manggo lassi was superb.
Later we strolled along the Mekong River for some photo shots and walked around the Royal Palace. As we were already full, we skipped dinner and slept early.
