Bokor Hill Station (South Cambodia) – 5. Journey, Day 2

Day 2 (Bokor Hill Station – Phnom Penh)

I started the day early at 630am. With the handy Bokor Hill map, I rode in search of the abandoned buildings I have read so much about. They were as eerie as described. I took some quick photos and made my way down Bokor Hill.

I reached the main road from Bokor Hill at 930am and proceeded along highway 4 back to Phnom Penh. The ride back was uneventful except for a sudden rain which found me seeking shelter at a petrol station together with other motorcyclists.

After the rain had subsided, I continued back to Phnom Penh. I returned the motorcycle to Lucky! Lucky! at 130pm and was given a slight discount for the early return.
