Otres Beach

Far from the dark places of Phnom Penh, we find ourselves on Otres Beach, south of Sihanoukville.

We stay at Pappa Pippa’s Bungalows and Restaurant. Originally started by Italians, the pizza’s great. We have a Gilligan’s Island-style bungalow.

These small boats go to the nearby islands.

It’s steps from the beach. We get great sunsets from here.

You can run a tab if you like. So you don’t have to carry any money. Personally, I like carrying money.

Sight or Insight of the Day – Otres Beach

We meet again with Ulf and Susanne, our nice German friends whom we met in Luang Prabang (Laos) and Pagan (Myanmar). They arrive fresh from a gruelling bus trip from Saigon, Vietnam.

It’s a pleasant aspect of travel to run into people you look forward to meeting again.
