Talking My dream ride - Cambodia

I've been planning and hoping for this ride for more than 2 years.
Circumstances somehow clicked and it was on.

I'll post some teasers here ( about 56 pics ) : )

The full write is at the blog below




Early morning on the Malaysian freeways. the 1st day was going to be long




Another R&R




After crossing the Thai border i stopped at the border town of Dan Nok




I was not alone




Nice Thai roads




After 850+km i stopped for the day




Early the next morning. great riding weather.




No idea




religious i think





After braving the Bangkok madness i had to get on the ferry as motorcycles are not allowed on the freeways




I use the term ferry loosely




After the river crossing i looked for a hotel .
See the cars in their individual parkings.
see the number plates being blocked.Lets just say my room had a verrrry large mirror




Nice and cool in the next morning




After a few hours i reached this- Welcome to the Kingdom of Cambodia




The border town of Poipet. dusty .yet so cool.




Big sky country



Miles of straights...




Reached my destination of Siem Reap




Now the fun begins




Terrace of the Leper king in the Angkor complex



Bayon





This is the picture i've been wanting to take for the last 2 years.
My bike infront of the Angkor Wat.




Nice digs




How else to end the day




the next morning i headed to Phnom Phen. Took the back roads (another way of saying i got lost )




Had a chat with the locals. The lady couldnt stop smiling.




Streets of Phnom Phen




I wanted to visit here.



School kids exercise equipment became an instrument of torture




no explanation needed









This is actually how it was




The same buliding as above with the original barbed wire still intact.




Cells on the ground floor.





on the 1st floor




This is how it was.





Phnom phen's main park




looking on to the Tonle Sap river. In the background is the Mekong river.




Had a beer and chat at fellow ADVrider Jacl-Kampuchea's bar




Heading north the next day.



Battambang city.




So cool




On the way to the beach town of Hua Hin






Very nice.






Cool wheels




On to Ranong the next day



Exiting the freeway it was 110km of bliss.




Came from here




going here




From ranong you can look over to Myanmar



Heading home




Back in to Malaysia




It has been a dream ride and i had to fight to get the time to go.
Was it worth it ??
oh yesssss

cheers
