We arrived in Sihanoukville on the south coast after a long bus ride from Siem Reap in the north. It was getting late so we checked into temporary accommodation and then headed down to the beach the following morning. Arriving on Serendipity beach was a bit like walking into a Cambodian beach area of Glastonbury festival in the sense that it felt relaxed, make-shift, and with a mixed crowd.

The primary reason that we had come to Siem Reap was to visit the Angkor temples, and most famously Angkor Wat itself. It seemed that every other traveller, tourist, student and holiday-maker had come to Siem Reap too. The town was overrun with tourists. Normally we would have been put off by this, but within hours of arriving in Siem Reap we had fallen under it’s spell and were really enjoying our new Cambodian experience.
