Going to Pailin, Cambodia

My plans were after 2 days Battambang to travel to Pailin and stay 1 night there before heading to the Thai border. I arranged transport and even with a bit disappointing stop at Samlot I was at lunch time in Pailin. I checked out the recommended (new) Ruby Guesthouse but the rooms are small and not clean (as the all hotel actually) so I checked out a second guesthouse just outside of town. Also this guesthouse must have been nice 20 years ago. As I was now actually already on the way to the border I decided to skip Pailin city and go straight to the border. At the border are some good and new looking hotels to serve the many Thai who come here to bring their money at the casino's. As I am not a gambler and the border was now within 100m away I just decided to go home straight away. So 1 hour later I was at the parking place behind the Thai border and found myself a ride back home. End of a 10-days trip of Cambodia. I like it and will probably come back soon.
