After our excellent experience in Siem Reap, I was unsure that anything else would even come close, but I was proved wrong. Sihanoukville was a beachy tourist paradise, with picturesque scenery, friendly locals, and excellent barbecued seafood! Plenty of clubs and bars, and we had a pool literally outside our room - epic. Apart from soaking up the sun and swimming in the sea, there wasn't really that much to do. We successfully consumed some dodgy food though, which caused a few problems with people but nothing serious.
We arrived in Ho Chi Minh city earlier today, and were greeted by a very westernized culture that was reminiscent of home, furthered by the excellent vanilla latte I was enticed by. Quote of the trip so far, by our tour guide Pok: "Don't expect too much..." - possibly the most used sentence so far. Funnily enough, the hotels steadily keep improving - this must be part of Pokk's tactics to manipulate our expectations. I'm not complaining though! We discovered to our dismay that Vietnam has banned facebook, a 2 week separation from our friends and fam. Looks like pics will have to wait until OZ!
