    A place where you do not want to stay! ... I mean the clinic :) (actually, it might be a 'beauty' clinic as 'fashionable' girls were promoting it! It's just 50 meters from Jomla :)

    G'day Everyone..

    On the way back to Bangkok from Baan Ricky (Sai Yok Yai) today..
    We took the top road to avoid the road works and traffic around Nakom Pathom.

    We saw this on the way and thought it had to get a post on the forum..

    Not a giant KM marker.. But I have found where all the KM markers go to die..

    DSCN6741_zpsc12c5812.

    If you want to find this location to pay homage.. It is just north of Siem Reap at the most potholed round about in Cambodia.

    Cheers
    Brian
