Bangkok and then Koh Phangan

For the first 50-60 km I follow the Mekong River, after which I only the river's tributary. I'm horrified over all garbage and plastic they throw everywhere, along the way and in the rivers. Here in Cambodia it seems there is no sustainable recovery plan. Several [...]
