I got a mini bus today from Koh Kong to Sihanouk Ville. I kind of wanted to take the ferry, but the guest house I was staying at organizes bus trips, so I ended up buying a ticket from them. You apparently can’t see much from the ferry anyway, so perhaps it was a good decision.
The road is still under construction, so at each river we had to cross on a pontoon. It was an amazing site – buses, people, live chickens. I am staying the in the Victory Hill area of Sihanouk Ville which overlooks the sea.
The room was $6 a night which I got them down to $5. It is pretty nice place, compared with some of the dumps I have been staying in. They have a domitory at the hotel for just $2 a night. A beer in a bar is just 50 cents.
