The new Bokor road

Congratulations to the developers of the Bokor Mountain for the finished road. I missed the difficult path ascending in the middle of the jungle. Now we got a modern way, strong bridges, slide-land preventive plaques – I hope it is the name – and even beautiful gardens. The road is really amazing, ascending more than one thousand meters up the sea level. Do not rush if you drive. Not more than 40 kilometers per hour should be allowed not only because the several bends, but also the frequent fog. I am happy too that the two old bridges were preserved (the new bridges go near them.)  Wait more posts with details of my Bokor visit during the last week…

    Even though Cambodia is the small country which is keeping with the most histories and old temples in its but remember that there are lots of the beautiful resorts , beaches , islands, salt fields , foods including the road up to the Bokor mountain which give all visitors luxury , and comfortable . One thing you all still keep in mind while driving is without drinking win , beer , alcohol , because can make harm not only you your self but also others whom on the same road or way to the same or different destinations too . wish all visitors who comes to visit mount Bokor have good luck , good journey , time , now or next time .
