Road Trip from Phnom Penh to Siem Riep

We took a mini-bus from Phnom Penh to Siem Riep.

The journey is quite long due to the bad roads, and a bit cramped if you’re tall like I am.

Despite the heat and the bad roads,
travelling by mini-bus is a wonderful way to see the countryside.

The late rains resulted in very dry rice paddies.

Motos are one of the most common vehicles in Cambodia, no matter where you go.

On our journey, we had the opportunity to see traditional Khmer houses on stilts.

The houses are built on stilts so that the annual flooding does not cause any damage.

Wooden ladders or stairs provide access to the dwellings.

An old bike perches among the litter alongside the muddy river.

Cows, gentle eyes gazing patiently into the distance, graze in the baking sun.

There are so many ways to travel from Phnom Penh to Siem Riep.
A mini-bus journey gives you a great overview of the Cambodian countryside.
