Sihanoukville and Koh Kong

Sunday 8 August: My four days in Phnom Penh are filled getting dull tasks done: Thai visa, tax self assessment online (a joy not to be missed), sandals heeled and stitched (again), trousers sewn, insect repellents bought, e-mails answered and finally, with a sparkling new Thailand visa, it's off to Cambodia's main beach resort - Sihanoukville.
Thursday 12: I'm staying at Sokhom Guesthouse ($4 for large en-suite with satellite TV, balcony and sea view) at Serendipity Beach, the backpackers favourite. It's off-season but after two days of rain the sun is shining and I jump on my hired 21-gear mountain bike (62nd mode of transport and cycle around for couple of days (I've been here before): Otres Beach with island views, Victory Beach with it's boat jetty, Sokha Beach and back to Serendipity beach near the city's icon - Golden Lion roundabout.
Sunday 15: Bus along the coast to overnight stop at the frontier town of Koh Kong with it's bridge sweeping low over the Stung Koh Poi river towards the Thai border. Tomorrow it's a moto ride across the bridge and into Thailand.
