During breakfast we packed some croissants, eggs and bananas for our bus trip. After checked out, walked leisurely to the bus terminal. Rested on the bench in the park while waiting for the bus. A hotel staff on a motorbike was looking for us to return my passport. I had carelessly left it on the table in the hotel lobby.

The Danh Danh bus was on time. The journey to Phnom Penh took more than 6 hours with a few stops on the way. It was already dark and raining heavily when we reached Phnom Penh. A tuk-tuk cost us USD4 from the bus terminal to the hotel. Collected our laundry and had dinner at a nearby halal restaurant.
