Hi, my name is Jim, I manage the California 2 Guesthouse in Phnom Penh. I have a passion for Cambodia and its rich heritage, wonderful people and beautiful places to explore. When I took over the Business in 2001 there wasn't much info on Cambodia and I was in the business of selling the country. As a result I needed to offer customers option and as a result, I began riding a motorcycle and finding temples was the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow ride in the countryside.
After a few years, I acquired a GPS, not to find the treasures, but to mark them once I found them. (More often than not the route in was spaggeti and the route out was more direct)
I travel on a 250cc motorcycle as seen left on the way to Odar Meanchey Province from Siem Reap Province on an ancient Dharmasala Route. Many visitors don't travel this way and a 250cc motorcycle isn't required to visit some of the places that follow, though it does offer freedom. Mini busses, Shared taxis, Motos driven by locals are some of the options available. As the country develops, more roads have been put in place and with better accessibility some of these places, consequently the adventure is disappearing. I want to share some of my journeys and hope to enrich your Cambodia experience with some of the same.
