Cambodia: Artifacts, Vehicles & More
After the Ancient Stairway experience we decided to give our bodies a break and stay lazy in Sra'aem.
On the way searching for coffee we encountered various wheeled contraptions...
This 'coffee shop' had the most impressive wooden furniture!
Drinking water first in order to prepare our stomachs for the seriously strong local coffee...
Of course coffee with a layer of sweet condensed milk at the bottom!
After breakfast we got back on our bikes again for a short ride to the Eco Global Museum which got good reviews.
15 km later we were pleasantly surprised by a very well laid out collection with clear descriptions in English, French and Khmer, spread out over 2 buildings.
Probably one of the largest boats I'd seen, although not sure how this one would compare with those back in Thailand.
Again, excellent museum but I couldn't help noticing the third building which was used as a storage for both staff's motorcycles, artifacts and more.
Despite being built at the same time as the other two this building already showed serious signs of disrepair, not a good sign at all...
Once back in Sra'aem we couldn't help being amazed by these 'stove selling' trucks.
To finish off the day we went back on our bikes for a final ride through the other parts of town and had a quick look at a school which caught our attention due to the large number of parked motorcycles.
Like Thailand, Cambodia too has a moslim minority and on the outskirts of Sra'aem we found this mosque.
One of the more impressive wooden houses in town.
Beginning of the evening.
On the way back to our guest house we spotted this luxury night bus, its seats can almost go fully horizontal!
The first MapMyRide shows the way to the museum.
The second follows our short ride up and down the main drag....
