May 13th, 2015 - Phnom Penh to Siem Reap - Day 271

Checking out of the White Linnen

Today was a travel day and for the first time on this trip we took a bus to get from city to city.  We had our last wonderful breakfast at the White Linen hotel and then packed up and headed over to the bus stop.

 It was a little over 7 hours on the bus, but was pretty easy and we arrived in Phnom Penh with no issues.  The only drawback to the bus was that the road was ripped up for most of the route, so it was a bumpy ride.  Other than that it was fine.  

Once we arrived in Siem Reap at the bus station a man that was helping us with our bags asked if we needed a taxi.  We said yes and started walking with him.  When we arrived we saw that his Taxi was actually a Tuk Tuk.  We don't have a lot of bags, but we have more than can fit in a tuk tuk, but this guy so no problem.  He started piling bags here in and indicated that we should just jump in as well.  We were tired and ready to get to the hotel so we just complied with his instructions and let it go.  9 months ago I doubt we we have rolled with it, but we are a little different now :-).

It was only about a 8 minute ride to the hotel and while it was uncomfortable we were there before we knew it.  We checked in quickly and were asleep before we knew it.
