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 07: Ayutthaya - Koh Kong

"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams..." - Oprah Winfrey

(Border crossing at Had Lek)

Day 07: 29 Nov 2017 (Wednesday)
Route: Ayutthaya – Chantaburi - Koh Kong
Distance: 476 km
Hotel: City Hotel, Koh Kong 

We had breakfast together with the gang at Khiua Muslim Restaurant. This morning we split from the rest and rode solo towards Thailand/Cambodia border at Had Lek. The rest of the KKB gang will ride back to Malaysia.

The suburb of Bangkok was heavy with traffic. Reached Chantaburi late afternoon and had lunch in one Pakistan Restaurant in town. Performed our prayers in the restaurant before heading towards the Thailand/Cambodia border.

Border crossing at both borders was swift and efficient. Submitted the usual documentations at the Had Lek Thailand border and no fee was paid here. At Chan Yeam Cambodia border paid Baht100 each for entry card and passport stamping. No conveyance was needed for our motorbike. The border business hours was from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm.

It was already dark when we entered Cambodia. There was no toll at Koh Kong Bridge. Checked in Koh Kong City hotel for USD15/night. Feeling tired, we had packed fried rice for dinner in the room.
