From Alnmouth, it’s possible to take a rail superbreak, transport and hotel all-in, anywhere in the UK. We’ve been to Whitehaven in Cumberland and to Aberdeen where my Cambodian wife took a liking to the free Buck’s Fizz served at breakfast. Oddly, the cost of these packages can be less than booking the fare-only.
So once Cambodia’s rail system was restored, I couldn’t resist the temptation. A trip to Kampot or Sihanoukville is a bit long for me, but Takeo just an hour and a half from Phnom Penh, was just the ticket.
