The term "sleeper bus" is an oxymoron. You see, there is no chance you could possibly sleep on that thing. When we first boarded the bus and saw 4 lounge seats in the back of the bus, complete with blankets and a bathroom below, we thought we had won the lottery. What they don't tell you in the advertisement though is that the temperature is either so hot you can't breathe, or so cold that the air conditioning fluid drips on you the entire time. No really, I was drenched wet. That had to be good for my skin. Additionally, the back of the bus was so bumpy, we could barely hold on. Above all, the most frustrating part of the bus ride is the CONSTANT honking of the horn that Cambodian bus drivers LOVE. And I don't mean every once in a while when it's actually necessary. The horn is Asia is equivalent to a blinker, braking, steering, etc. You don't actually have to drive. You can just set the bus on auto-[ilot, honk, and expect everyone to move out of your way (they do). The constant honking almost makes you crave the karaoke videos on full volume. I said almost. Luckily, I was sharing the ride with good friends who were able to make it fun(ish) and now that we've had some sleep, we can look back at it and chalk it up to another adventurous Asian bus ride. We can add this one to the FB page, Austin.
Our mantra the entire ride was "the beach will make it all worth it"….and it did!
