Angkor Wat Part 1

BASIC INFORMATION: All you need to know before visiting Angkor Wat Some people said that to visit Angkor Wat in a day was truly a blunder. I can’t agree with them more. But, as ordinary people with a bit of stubbornness, we kept to the previous plan of touring the Angkor Wat complex in a day. I have made a list about the pluses and minuses of our one day journey: PLUS The ticket, undoubtedly, is cheap - it only cost $37 USD.If you are a light explorer or a cheapskate, and you don’t want to tour the entire complex, a one day ticket is a good…

What To See in Sisowath Quay, Phnom Penh

After spending a night watching the Water Festival and sitting for too long on the bus, what we needed was to sleep like logs. Yet, our (actually, my) enthusiasm about exploring Phnom Penh successfully beat what we called our tiredness. Right after coming back to the hotel, with the help of a super map and guide book we ‘stole’ from the receptionist’s area, we made a list of places we’d like to visit around Sisowath Quay.

From Vietnam to Cambodia

If you are good at geography, you might remember that Vietnam and Cambodia share international borders. In total, there are 5 ‘gates’ you can easily meander from one country to the other and back again. Sometimes I envy the convenience of belonging to a country located on the mainland.

Sihanoukville — a great place for a beach bum

This kind of seats might disrupt my tummy Traveling by land is always more comfortable than traveling by sea or by air. I believe that boats, ferries, speed boats and other watercraft will always result in an unpleasant journey, like I had when I traveled in Thailand. Thus, I decided that I would avoid sea travel if there are still other options to choose from. ​Traveling by plane is undoubtedly fast and sometimes cheap, but what if the country you are traveling to doesn't have reliable airline companies? It wouldn't be a smart idea to put your precious vacation at risk. ​So when I traveled around Cambodia,…
