Sorry it's been a while! Managed to loose a fair few days in Sihanouk Ville to Knock me off track!! Anyway here goes!
Our first day in Phu Quoc was nice, as per we walked far to far in the wrong direction sweating like god knows what! Wonderful! The evening in Phu Quoc was lovely! We met up with Mike from home an had a couple of beers. Chilled out an played pool, I'm still rubbish!!
We hired mopeds on the second day in Phu Quoc to explore the island. We drove for about 10 mins an the heavens opened. We got drenched, head to toe! We got back to the hotel an for changed an headed back out to explore the rest of the Island, it's really beautiful in Phu Quoc. We hit the night market an had dinner there. Fresh sea food, it was amazing.
Best day we have had yet! We took a trip to the waterfall with the people in the hotel. 6am the hotel owner went to the market and picked up 1kg of squid 1kg of crab and 1kg of chicken. We left at 10ish an it took us 25 mins to drive there. There was us2, hotel owner an his girlfriend, 3 guys from Saigon, a French chap and the owners 2 mates. We hiked upto the waterfall an set up camp near the top. After 15mins a guy arrived with a BBQ for us an a bucket of steamed rice. They did everything for us, cooked all the food an made loads of nice saucey dippy things for us. Sweet chilly, pepper and salt an lime. Really really nice!
They had made a noodle salad as well. The chicken had been marinated in a BBQ spicy sauce as well. All the food was amazing and so fresh!! We then went for a dip in the waterfall, nice an cool! We stayed there till 3 ish an then headed back. For all of it, we only paid £11 for the 2 of us!! Such a lovely day! We booked the bus boat bus to Cambodia which picked us up for 9am.
We got to the mainland at 12 so not too bad. The bus took us to a little travel agent who wanted us to pay $27 each for our visas!! We didn't get them because we new they were cheaper at the boarder. We got the boarder and it was $22 so we were well happy! Managed to get through to Kep by 3, seems like a long journey but it was stop start. We chilled out an headed to the crab market for some lunch. We had the famous Kep Crab which was lovely, Then headed to the town for a few drinks. Literally no one there at all!! Had to walk 2.5km back as no way of getting home!!
The next day as went to rabbit island just off the coast of Kep. Boat across was nice, 20 mins so not long. Literally we were the only 10 people off the boat on the island!! Really chilled out day on the beach. Few beers an lunch. Not a bad day all in all! Nightmare with the hotel today...no water or electricity all day an some of the night!! Was fuming! We went to meet the Irish for a quick drink in the evening which was nice to have the company!
The next day we left for Kampot and got there round 1pm checked in an went for a walk around town. Had a bit of a rain but nothing too bad! We finally got round to uploading the pics to Facebook an on here!!
Dinner was amazing! We had chicken an pork, squid and catfish kebabs! Went to the Irish bar as well, pushed the boat out an had a gin an tonic, was amazing!!
Woke up the next day Ill :( one side of my face was swollen an my throat is killing me, got a chest infection. The chemist didn't really know about my face so I just took an antihistamine an paracetamol! They did give me more Panadol which did kick in! Mike went to get his hair cut today, seemed like a good idea at the time..... We got to the hair dressers an they had pics of famous people on the wall to point to style hair like that. Mike picked Zac Effron, not a perfect match but close. 5 minutes later, I'm walking out with Mike with a Jason Stathem hair cut! Needless to say $3 hair cut maybe wasn't the best idea!! Defo get what you pay for!! We walked round town an chilled out, met the Irish for a few drinks in the evening.
Headed off to sihanouke ville for 1pm. Went the beach an for a few drinks but nothing major we were both wiped out!
Next day again we went the beach, chilled all day an finished my book. Had a manicure an pedicure on the beach! Finally have nice feet!! Saw the girls we met in ha long bay so went to meet them for dinner. Bit of a mad night. Had dinner with them then when's chasing the 25 cent beers! Played a card game which is lethal, lucky the beer was cheap! Next drink was vodka buckets.....by buckets it was half a coke bottle with the drink in. Not quite the conventional Thai bucket! We were at a little club on the beach which was really good, finally got to have a boogie!
Needless to say they next day was a right off! We were both hanging, managed to find a Sunday roast which made it so much better!! We had a movie day, watching absolutely anything that was on! Have defo had better days!!
We headed out to Koh Rong for the night the next day....get off the 40min boat to absolute paradise. Power white sand an crystal clear water. Actual paradise. We found a little place to stay, at $7 we couldn't expect much but god it was a shock. Checked in etc an went to the room, it was a bed with a mosquito net, a toilet an a shower. It was built into a huge tree house, really cool but very unstable! Met Josh an Jamie two guys off our boat just after dinner an started playing drinking games. Finally we know more games!! Alison an Daz joined us an we began beer pong. We were awful! At 2am all the power on the island went off, brilliant. We went into the sea an saw the plankton, they were fab. Best nights sky we have seen, billions of stars shining really brightly!
Again bit off a right off day, I couldn't sleep past 5am so we went to watch the sun rise, it was beautiful. Had a little swim too an got back into bed at 7. Had to check out at 9am which was a mare. While I was in the bathroom a little frog jumped on my back, it was horrible an slimy but scared the life out of me!! We had something to eat an headed back to the main land. Could not cope with hear situation to stay another night!! Booked back into the hotel an had a nap! Went for something to eat an then
Went to Otres beach today, so empty it unreal! Was really nice to not be asked every 2 minutes if I would like a bracelet or pedicure!! Met up with Josh again for 25cent beer night....always ends in tears! Had $2 worth in utopia an headed for more in JJs. Had the buckets again, so strong! We booked onto a booze cruise for some stupid reason! Game over after them so headed back!
Spend the next day on the beach an had a lovely nap! Nice quiet day. Met Daz an Alison in the evening for drinks, they were with some people they new from home so was good to meet them. They were nuts like!!
Final day in Sihanouk Ville was spent on the beach as per! Got a new book finally! Reading the lost symbol now.
We check out of the hotel an leave Sihanouk Ville tomorrow at 8:30am Heading up to Phnom Penh. Can't believe how long we spent here but we loved it!
Anyways I've written war and peace so I'll update again later on in Cambodia! Love you all xxxx
