Sihanoukville dispatches: Always trying to be positive … at least crabs aren’t a worry. It took a tuk tuk tour to find what’s probably the last available guest room , with hot water (call me picky), that accepts Westerners. US$30 a night is steep and it’s a rear room, but the Cambodian staff are fab and it’s a joy to watch Chinese families splashing in the pool. I expect this will soon be bulldozed to make way for a casino resort. – Makara Bungalows.
