Koh Kong

Filed under: General — Tags: — admin @ 4:30 pm

Koh Kong, Cambodia.

Where was I last? I have lost track of where I was. I think it was Battambang. Since then, I caught a bus to the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. I did not go into the Central Cardamon Mountains from Pursat because you need a bike to get in there. Phnom Penh was horrible, so I only spent a night there. The traffic there is insane and the city is just total madness.

This is Andrew fishing for trout at Tahtai Waterfall which is about twenty kilometers from Koh Kong. We hired some motor-bikes for the day for six bucks each and headed off to the waterfall for a swim. The water was beautiful and cool and clean.

After that we went to Pream Krasaop National Park, which is a massive mangrove forest on the coast of Cambodia. I think I heard it was the largest in Asia. No birds but. I think someone saw a kingfisher, but I saw nothing whatsoever.

I think that way might be Thailand. But then again, I think it might be the Cardamon Mountains.

There was this fish farm stuck out in the middle of this bay. I think it is quite shallow there.

We had crab for lunch at a restaurant in the mangroves. Freshly caught I reckon.
