Post dated: Traveled July 2014
Magical, Stunning and Amazing these are the words came out of my mind when I saw Siem Reap . I felt the magic on how the Cambodian’s ancestors build this City and temples over 1800 years . Stunning! The details and how precise each rocks and sculptures in each temples. It is truly amazing .
I’ve traveled last July 2014. And on my first day, I took the “Small tour” as they said . We went to Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Victory Gate, Thommanom,Chou Say Thevada, Ta keo, Ta Prom (Tom Raider movie) Banteay, Kdei, Sras Srang and other temples for just 12 usd in a tuktuk . Tuktuk is a 3 wheel motor vehicle might be good for max 6 persons but I suggest to have it 4 only for a comfortable sit.
Because of my vain knowledge about Cambodia and their Temples, I’ve decided to have a tour guide. Lucky, The Golden Temple Villa Hotel where I stayed in gave me an amazing tour guide Sov Sothik for just USD 30. He will tell you everything, you need to know about the temples and their history. Also he took some pretty cool pictures of the temples with me as model hahaha.
On my 1st night, I went to Koulen restaurant to see some Aspara dance and had a buffet dinner for just 12 usd . Those performers dance gracefully . They able to tell their audience their history and culture through dancing . Though I won’t recommend the food is not on my taste, I rather go to some cheaper restaurants on street . #solotraveller #SiemReap
