Fantastic piece of information, the best I've found in SEA.

I'm hoping that you might help me to understand why I am presently locked in my GH. I started reading the guide last evening prior to the power failure. Fortunately my torch was at the ready because I was LMAO in the middle of local characters.

Any way I was up and ready for a walk at 6A but found myself trapped by a locked gate with a rather large lock just outside my room. So is this for my safety, the gate and the barb wire ringed concrete wall, or are the worried someone will skip out on the 15 per night bill?


Dear Inmate.

It seems you have stumbled upon one of the Pot's secrets!  As all Pot-Pat's know, power cuts are only a call to prayer for the local satanic collective, your GH was following standard protocol by securing non believers within.

Usually the all night backpacker roasting ends around 7am and normality is restored, so it's better to grab the extra hour sleep before attempting to venture out.

If you are a backpacker be sure to be in bed before the witching hour, or you too could be invited to the roasting, as a main course!

Mappin da coast...

It's a work in progress thing and intended for Issue 20, mainly produced to take the piss out of the Coastal guides efforts, best you try harder Stef!

Phase 2 of the Red De-Fit for Alan as requested.

All these were taken the night of completion, the Bar as yet unused, it's been well used ever since.


Dear Compiler(s),
My recent sojourn to Kampot in Nov-Dec resulted in the loss of a 5.2 karat (6mm x 4mm x 3mm) emerald doublet pendant somewhere between the market and Mea Culpa, just as the roads were starting to dry. The most likely place was near a lady selling drinks from a stall, possibly in the vicinity of the steamed-bun seller. I would like the emerald back; while it doesn't have sentimental value, it's worth a shit-load. If found or seen hanging around someone's neck, please let Ben at Mea Culpa know.

Oh, and enough of the 'gay' cracks. (That wasn't a gay crack, either.)


Dear non Compiler,

We at the KSG take every case reported seriously, thats why we are replying to you. Our dedicated team of reporters come activists are rarely off the hot scenes, but alas this sorry tale seemed to miss our team entirely.

Thanks to local Police and Governmental Departments I am now sure Kampot is well on the way to recovering your lost gem. Indeed all local authorities are agreed that the return of your lost gem is paramount, all streets on the route you specified have been excavated and the process of removing squatters is nearly complete.

KSG HQ is sure some time in the next while there may be some progress on your quest and therefore wishes to take less piss from the peoples less involved.

In future expect shorter emails...

Pot out...
