A campy trip to Camby ~ Day 2

March 4

Got ourselves a bus ticket with Captiol Tour @ $4.50 each (air condition). Head up to Siam Reap @ 7:30am (6 hour ride).
We passed by a few villages along the way. Kampong Thom being one of them is the second largest province in Cambodia but it has been a travellers stop for a bite to eat. Maybe because it's situated right in the middle of NH6 highway midway between Phonm Penh and Siam Reap.

By the time we reached Siam Reap it was already 1:00pm plus and without delay we quickly get a "Tuk Tuk" and head towards our resort. I was so happy to see the her standing there, a very nicely built up resort with a nice environment ~ The Lotus Resort & Spa. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. We were greeted with "smiles". Good choice BS and thank goodness I listened to you on this.
Took some time to freshen up and went exploring around the resort and by 5:00pm plus we decided to head down town for our dinner and a bit of sight seeing. Our "Tuk Tuk" driver for the evening is called Mr Monk (he does have clean shaved head ~ hehehe). He brought us to the Old Market in Street 9 where we had our first taste of local food. And yes, it's delicous, yum (do not use "yum yum", will expain later why).

After that we walk around the area and found "Pub Street", definitely was one of our most fequent visit street for the evening, why? hehehe (psss, draft beer at $0.50 all day long).
At about 8:00pm plus we decided to head back and to get an early rest. We will be heading into Angkor at 4:40am the next day to get a view of the sunrise.

Night night, zzzzzz
