Serendipity Beach
Well after spending 4 hours on the bus from Phnom Penh thinking about various things in life including my last blog it was time to hit Sihanoukville as part of our journey back to Pattaya along the coast.

After arriving at the bus station it was the usual Tuk Tuk and motorcycle madness of people wanting your business and money.

We headed off to Serendipity beach area to look for a guest house or bungalow with that taken care of it was time to go the beach for some food.

The next day was very chilled out compared to the last week of visiting so many historic places and the overload of your senses in Phnom Penh, We sat on the beach for the majority of the next two days reading and listening to music.

This area is a travellers paradise there is not much to do but time just flies by, Gaz set a marathon reading record of 6 hours straight one day in the same beach cafe.

Again there is plenty of "Happy" options for you here and buying the "Happy" product by itself is as easy as ordering your drink off a menu as invariably the cafe you are in sells it.

If visiting here you may want to check out the free accomodation options, we did not know about them until we had arrived so we could not move. The people that run them just expect you to eat once or twice a day at thier resident but be warned they are pretty basic from what we gathered.

There are oppurtunities for getting work here as some guesthouses are British owned and had jobs advertised for western staff only I did not apply.

Well it was time to head back to Pattaya and what awaited us was a 12 hour minibus journey crossing the border and lots and various rivers by the strangest car ferries ever.
