I am taking a taxi from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh via Cambodian national road number 4. Unlike the national road number 3 which I took when I visited kampot earlier, this road is way smoother. According to the local, in recent months the government has decided to lift the toll fee from the private investor which make people very happy about this move. Besides the national road, a new train service in Cambodia has been established. What is special about the train service is that similar to the one in Switzerland, you can board your car onto the train wagon for a reasonable price. However, we need to know that the royal railway Cambodia schedule is still limited and at time the train runs more than 7 hours to reach Sihanoukville from Phnom Penh via Kampot province. For that reason, I decided to take the taxi service instead of using the railway for my visit.
Around one quarter of the way, we found one resort namely Picnic Resort where we decided to stop for our lunch. It was a pleasant surprise to have something that huge in the middle of no where, I would say. When I interviewed the employee over there, I understand the owner is from Svay Rieng Province. This picnic resort Cambodia employs more than 100 people over the land of 7 hectares.
