In Kampot, a laid back riverside town in south east Cambodia, I stayed at a place called Kampot River Bungalow. It was quite far out of town, on a 2 km strip north of Kampot with a dozen of other bungalow resorts.
What drew me to this place though, was my “room”: a bed with mosquito net on top of and overlooking the river! No walls. I woke up to sunrise each morning. What a delight!
So why not draw more customers in?
That’s why I offered them to redo their entrance sign on the main road.
It was a full day of work, struggling with poor quality “made in China” brushes and paint that quickly turned into glue due to the heat. And writing in Khmer was quite a challenge!
The fresh and new double sided sign made the owners really happy. In return they generously offered me free food and accomodation for my entire 4 day stay in Kampot. Now that’s what I call a great deal 🙂
