In the early morning, we left Hoi An.  From our hotel, we booked a private transfer to Danang Airport.  It took us about 40 minutes drive then we flown back to Ho Chi Minh.  Then back to our old hotel, Bich Duyen, where we were waiting for our bus to pick us up going to Phnom Penh.  With Mekong Express Bus that we purchased in advance from our hotel receptionist for 17 USD.  The bus left at 1pm and arrived at Phnom Penh at around 7pm.

Caramelized pork
At first, we totally had no idea about what Cambodian food is!  We had tried all South East Asian food in Australia but Cambodian food, like genuine Cambodian delicacies, we had never seen one in there.  We were completely clueless entering to one of the local restaurant at that night.  We ordered something common in the beginning, which were caramelized pork and sundried beef served with rice.  We were absolutely blown off.  It was surprisingly delicious.  Especially that dips, the salt pepper lime dip was great compliment to this beef dish.  We were looking forward to more meals in Cambodia.  So stay tuned and Octie Appetie...
