Songs to Sleep to

Songs to Sleep to

posted in: Travel Tips | 3

In the last three months we have clocked up the mileage on boats, buses, trains, tuk-tuks and motos.
We have travelled on sleeper buses and trains overnight, twelve hour buses over border crossings, and even a private air conditioned taxi from Phnom Penh to Takeo (plush). One thing these journeys have had in common is the Cambodian/Vietnamese/Korean rave music blasting out of the radio, or even an un-subtitled soap opera or two throughout the ride.
