Svay Rieng

A laid-back town that sits by the Wayko River, there is literally nothing to do here. Adeda Bank (§ 9455545) represents Western Union for money transfers.

If you do get stuck here the best place to stay is Tonle Waikor Hotel (§ 945718; r US$10; (JJ)), where spacious rooms have all the basic luxuries you need for a quick stopover, including a TV and fridge. Vimean Monorom Hotel (§ 945817; r US$510; ) offers clean, decent-sized rooms. There are snack stalls along the river and others around the market, otherwise the best of the restaurant bunch is Boeng Meas Restaurant (mains US$1-2; ® breakfast, lunch & dinner).

Buses leave from Phnom Penh's Psar Thmei (8000r, three hours). To and from the Bavet border crossing, secure a spot in a share taxi for US$2.
