CAMBODIA

November, 2017

I went to Cambodia to specifically see Angkor Wat and the Killing Fields. I was blown away by both. Here are a few tips and tricks, and some photos to share from both places:

SIEM REAP

Accommodation: Mad Monkey Hostel - This place has suck a cool vibe, and the top floor is a beach bar. Vaughn is an awesome tuk-tuk driver and can be booked directly through the hostel, if you aren't comfortable on a motor bike.

 

Food: Happy Siem Reap - try the chicken amok curry.

 

Activities: Angkor Wat - Honestly, if I had more time...I would have gotten a multi day pass here. Angkor Wat is HUGE and you could spend days exploring different temples. We rented a motorbike and drove all through the park, stopping at the places that interested us. To end your day, watch sunset at Phnom Baking. 

Floating Village of Kompong Phluk - There is a much bigger floating village that is much more touristy, but this one is WAY more authentic. It's $21, and another $5 to rent a canoe...which I highly recommend!

PHNOM PEHN

Accommodation: DJ Guest House

Activities: Killing Fields - This is the reason I came to PP. It's one of the most sobering and moving experiences. I rented my own motor bike to get here, but you can take a tub tub for about $20 if you aren't comfortable. Enterence is $6. You have the option to do an audio tour...DO IT. Normally, I hate things like that but it was pretty phenomenal. Allow 2+ hours, and you probably wont want to do much afterwards.

** PP is dark and unfresh, very chaotic and a lot like not other big asian metropolis. I wouldn't not stay more than 2 nights. **
