A 4 day weekend!

Treetops Ratanakiri

Naturally my idea of fun is taking a 10 hour bus ride up to remote Ratanakiri province, where Banlung is the tiny Khmer speaking oasis in the midst of 12 different ethnic groups. Forest everywhere, sprouting from red earth. I landed at Tree Tops guest house (above), which would be a fortune in hardwood and stone anywhere else on the planet.

Here’s what the local market looks like.

While the locals insist that nothing ever happens in Banlung, I happened upon an impromptu engagement celebration…

Swing Ratanakiri

…which led to a little Karaoke.


After 10 hours on the bus Ratanakiri delivered with scenery, songs and silliness. No complaints.
