Roads and Rivers–scenes of Cambodia from bus and riverboat.
Traveling in Cambodia can be a bit of an adventure: the roads are awful, rest stops are swarming with child-beggars, and occasionally soldiers (and bandits) set up bogus “checkpoints” at which they extort money from drivers. Travel guides universally suggest NOT stopping for police in Cambodia.
These photos are from the bus trip between Bangkok, Thailand, and Siem Reap, Cambodia. This was a fourteen-hour bus ride: three hours to cover 250 kilometers (about 100 miles) on the Thai side, two hours to pass Cambodian immigration, and NINE hours to cover 75 miles on the Cambodian side! This is because Cambodian roads are phenomenally bad--paving is strictly optional.
