of what, those trucks? I'd think they would pick something a little more exciting!

But speaking of the intro, Nate & Jen were discovered last year because of their intro shot at Huntington Beach and MySpace connection with The Goths (I miss them!). Maybe we can find a team like that again.

No the driver wearing the helmet might be a good intro shot.
..also Nate & Jen were discovered before the intro shots or the show began airing at Huntington Beach, October to be exact~

gmta peach (what have I done to my contestant thread!?  :lol: )

I can't for the life of me, find that Bus Station   :spy:
BATTAMBANG
Siem Reap: National Route #6 ( or Airport road)is paved all the way, and the journey is faster than it used to be (5-6 hours). In Siem Reap the Chong Kov Sou bus station is located near Phsar Leu (the 'Upper Market') about 2km west of the centre; in Phnom Penh, buses from different companies depart from different stations.

In Siem Reap, most buses arrive and depart from the Chong Kov Sou bus station near Phsar Leu 2km from town center.)

edited to remove my map but will leave the link, thanks peach

The little map I posted is from that big map--see bus station on the upper 1/3 right?

The only thing is the WEST of city center comment because all the maps I found point EAST>

Y'all really need to drop in to Maps! ;)  Send the discussion there later on if you want puddin.

Been there, Done that.  With the map pointer I thought I would be able to find it.  But, no luck!

Try this:

The bus station in Siem Reap is a chaotic place mainly catering to local traffic. It is located o¬n a dirt road off National Rd. No.6 about 4km east of the town centre. There is a Sokimex Gas Station at the road junction with Highway No.6. O¬nly buses to/from Phnom Penh and Battambang (via Sisophon) use the station.

Tickets can be purchased at the bus station (the ticket booths are a little way past the “station”), but if you buy them there, you will have to make your own way to the station. If you buy your ticket in town, the bus company provides a shuttle bus to take you to the station. The price for a tuk-tuk into town should be about $2-3. A motodup ride should cost $1. Be prepared to haggle.

I had to go farther out the highway 6 road.  The first map said 1 km.  Then another place said 2 km.  Then Peach found '4 km'

Several days ago I was looking all over the area near the floating market on Tonle Sap Lake.  That was wrong!

How the hell did you find that using goggle earth?  I mean seriously, the buildings aren't even that distinctive (Compared to many other places they visit, local landmarks, historic sites, ect).

Thanks RFF for the warm welcome. Thanks Puddin and Georgiapeach.

I don't know if this is the right thread to place these pictures. But since Puddin put here the photos one of the bloggers has sent me, I am attaching more from her. I am thinking these may not help but since these pictures are fresh, I still put it here for reference.

It looks like they have to literally pump their own gas to get those blue trucks going:

I was going by the double gable-pitched roof with one smaller than the other.  And the sun angle.  I know where it is supposed to be shinning from ant 7:30 am. 

I had given up until Peach found the reference to the bus station.

Glad to help the "Sun King" anytime! :waves:

And since this is basically an empty field, this was pretty amazing! :bow:

Probably instant noodles and baguettes...

I've been to that bus station! Buses to Phnom Penh leave from there!
