  • Cambodia 2At first glance Kratie (pronounced krat-chay) seemed like yet another strange and peculiar Cambodian town, but first impressions turned out to be wrong and it turned out to be a busy little place with lots of charm. After a six Posted by MalcolmB in Mal's Asia Trip 2015 | Nov 8, 2015
  • Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, and the Tomb Raider TempleMy previous post covered my thoughts, and I guess disappointments, of my time in Siem Reap.

  • People don’t take trips, trips take people.Blog Entry 4 – Siem Reap The Chatuchak Bus Terminal looks like a confusing open-plan mess when you first enter, but if you spend 5 minutes looking around you realise a more accurate term would be organised chaos, with counters for Posted by kay_bramm in GetLost | Sep 29, 2015
  • Crossing the border from Cambodia to LaosThe border crossing from Cambodia to Laos was a crazy affair.

  • Kratie - our last stop in CambodiaAfter being held up in Siem Reap a little longer than anticipated we were left with only a few days before our Visas were due to expire.

  • The grand finale - Angkor Wat & Angkor Thom We visited Angkor Wat at sunrise. Arriving at the site just after 5am, we hoped to see a nice sunrise over the glorious Angkor Wat.

  • Day One: Prah Khan, Neak Pean & Eastern MebonTo visit the Angkor Archaeological Park we are staying in Siem Reap, the closest city to the area.

  • I want to run away to the circus Another morning run, this time earlier and we watched the sun come up. Evan met some locals playing an unusual game sort of like hacky sac crossed with badminton.

  • Battambang - what a cracker of a town!Battambang is a fairly quiet town and upon first glance the streets seem sleepy and sedated with not a lot to see or do. Look beyond this however and you will be rewarded with a delightful town that has so Posted by Evalikat in Honeymooning | Jul 23, 2015
