Thanks alot pauche.. =)

will checkout all the sites listed in your blog..

 

hope to plan a good trip up either backpack or ride......:cheeky:

Fly there if you only have a week to see Cambodia. Rent a bike for about US$8-15 per day, but try to avoid going to Sihanoukville as there are some police roadblocks at the main roundabout as reported by fellow bikers. That roundabout is super huge, with 7 exits and it links the different ares of Sihanoukville together.

 

The law in Cambodia states that only people with a valid local licence can ride/drive a local vehicle. So even if you have an International Driving Licence, it's useless in Cambodia.

 

But if you have at least 2-3 weeks to spare, ride there with your own bike to explore different areas in Cambodia. You save more time with your own transport and you do not need to rely on bus timings or taxi to bring you around. Town/city maps are readily available at hotels/pubs. Alternatively, get a Gecko map from online websites. Mine was loaned from a friend and I had returned it to him months ago.

Humm, funny enconter... I would save the money and just buy cooking oil for the tank, and keep the whiskey for myself then.

 

Cooking oil can double-up as engine oil in emergency i heard. But as petrol, dun tink so.

May 2005 - July 2007: Honda Phantom TA200 (FU 3*** S)

July 2007 - Dec 2016: Honda CB400 Spec III (FBB 7***X)

Dec 2016 - Aug 2017: Yamaha FZ1N (FBD 4***E)

Aug 2017 - Present: Kawasaki Z1000SX (FBF 6***B)

 

Boono :cool:

Road Conditions

 

Poipet to Sisophon (Route 5, 51km, 1hr) - This section is surfaced but quite rough in spots. A lot of big big potholes that will keep your speed below 50km/h.

 

Sisophon to Siem Reap (Route 6, 105km, 2hrs) - The first 75km is unpaved road, some are paved, while some are loose sand with plenty of red dust. Lots of broken bridges are under construction. Meanwhile, you need to divert quite a number of times. The last 30km is broken tarmac roads with plenty of potholes.

 

 

any updates on the road conditions at the present moment...

 

 

 

how long it take for SG registered bikes to cross the Aranyaprathet - Poipet border?

Hi Pauche,

 

am planing to ride up to Cambodia. Where did you purchase your bike insurance for Cambodia? What other documents do I need to get through the custom? Is it the same documents like Thailand? Please advise. Thanks.
