  • Exfiltrated from Nam / R&R in CambodiaSo after we made our narrow escape from Vietnam (that sound exciting enough?) and with 5 hours left on our visa Josh and I got to Cambodia, glad that we had gotten rid of our bikes and ready for some Posted by reinder.prins in Athens to Australia, the scenic route | Aug 1, 2011
  • Day in Phnom PehnAfter a good night's sleep we had a lovely breakfast and then met the group to start our tour. We met our local guide, Long, a very sweet man. We left for the Royal Palace. It's not just a building Posted by adventuregirl88 in SE Asia | Jan 16, 2015
  • Siem Reap, Kingdom of CambodiaWhat a great day! We flew from Phnom Pehn north to Siem Reap. Our bus took us to an artisan school where we saw them making wood carvings, lacquered bowls, stone carvings and more. It was very impressive. Posted by adventuregirl88 in SE Asia | Jan 17, 2015
  • Angkor WatFor me, this is one of the highlights of the trip. A World Heritage site, it is a very special place. Upon awakening this morning, the Seahawk game was in progress and in the 4th quarter. What a game! Posted by adventuregirl88 in SE Asia | Jan 18, 2015
  • Back to Cambodia Flight times mean that the next 3 days are largely taken up with flying. Today we return to Siem Reap from Pakse (retrieving some luggage we left at the hotel) for an overnight stay. Pak Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Nov 21, 2017
  • Day 3 of templesAnother day, another temple (or two) – this time an isolated one 30km to the North of Siem Reap. But the drive out through the countryside was very pleasant and when we got to Banteay Srei, it turned out to Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Nov 16, 2017
  • Out and About in Phnom PenhPhnom Penh is located at the confluence of the Mekong and the Tonle Sap Rivers. I think there are couple of others around there also, but we have been sailing on the Tonle Sap and will get on the Posted by pscotterly in Down Under | Nov 16, 2017
  • Some Cambodian CultureOne night on the [[https://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/review.cfm?ShipID=1020|Amadara]], we had performances by young students of traditional dance and music.

  • Day 2 of templesWoke to rain, which we were told was good as it would be slightly cooler, but humidity was 100%! Drove first to the Angkor Thom complex, starting with the South Gate then the main Bayon temple [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/908766/1040348_01.jp Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Nov 15, 2017
  • To Angkor Wat Short internal flight to Siem Reap - from the name and accent the captain was Irish; wonder which airline he escaped from! Met our new guide and stopped for (excellent) lunch before check Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Nov 15, 2017
  • The Killing Fields of CambodiaThis is a very sad part of Cambodian history. I think it is important to recognize it and understand it. I remember reading abo Posted by pscotterly in Down Under | Nov 13, 2017
  • Back to Phnom Penh To Sihanoukville station for the train back to Phnom Penh, theoretically a 7 hour journey. Rumours of a steam engine proved to be illusory but the diesel certainly looked vintage. Amazing Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Nov 13, 2017
  • Into Cambodia 4th flight, 3rd country – early start for 8.30 flight and arrived promptly; but as only 5 of us in the group had got visas in advance, it was some time be we were all on the Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Nov 13, 2017
  • Ox Carts and TrishawsThere are some things one would never do unless with a tour group. Perhaps one shouldn't even do them when on a tour group. Riding in an Ox Cart might be one of them.

  • Blessing and Offering We visited the largest temple in this territory. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oudong|The Oudong Temple]] cost $10,000,000 USD - predominantly raised locally. Somehow, as poor as these people are, I find it rather sad they still will provide so much gr Posted by pscotterly in Down Under | Nov 11, 2017
  • We Visit a Floating VillageWe piled into little boats - forced to wear life jackets because we are a Western bunch! - and headed out to [[https://www.rent-a-guide.com/tour/12385-experience-the-floating-villages-of-koh-chen-gcdtp2|view a floating village,]] [img=https://photos.tra Posted by pscotterly in Down Under | Nov 11, 2017
  • On the Road in CambodiaIt was time to move on, We boarded another bus. Uh oh, I have just been terribly rude. As I write this, I am on a ship with my tour. A fellow traveler Posted by pscotterly in Down Under | Nov 11, 2017
  • Out and About in Siem ReapBecause of the beautiful resort and the quality of the tour, I only spent a brief afternoon on my own. I waited for the downpour to stop. I put on my trusty purple raincoat that hasn't seen much use lately Posted by pscotterly in Down Under | Nov 10, 2017
  • WOW Again![[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Mouhot|Most of us have read about the temples]] found in the jungle in the early 1900s. Probably first saw them in National Geographic.

  • Living in Siem Reap CambodiaIn my mind's eye, I had expected Siem Reap to contain only monks dressed in saffron or orange. There were no monks on the streets. This is how I lived [[https://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-3123-sofitel-angkor-phokeethra-golf-and-spa-resort/index.shtml Posted by pscotterly in Down Under | Nov 8, 2017
  • SimpleNot that we're complaining, but so far in Cambodia, we've settled into a bit of a routine of temple hopping, followed by stuffing ourselves with some fine Cambodian eats, both modern and traditional. While we still did those same Posted by vagabondvoyager in Good Eats: Nibbling Our Way Across Asia | Jan 15, 2014
  • NGOPhnom Penh gets mixed reviews, and we weren't quite sure what to expect of Cambodia's capital, only knowing that it was a bustling, chaotic, big city. It also has a bit of a reputation for not being the safest Posted by vagabondvoyager in Good Eats: Nibbling Our Way Across Asia | Jan 16, 2014
  • RealityPhnom Penh is the ultimate Cambodian reality check - they say that coming here helps you truly understand this country, especially for those that manage to stay hidden within the tourist bubble, who only hit up the temples of Angkor, Posted by vagabondvoyager in Good Eats: Nibbling Our Way Across Asia | Jan 17, 2014
  • AtmosphericPeople come to Siem Reap for one reason - to quickly get the hell out of here and go to the temples of Angkor! To most travelers, Siem Reap is little more than a base for visiting the area's Posted by vagabondvoyager in Good Eats: Nibbling Our Way Across Asia | Jan 13, 2014
  • SpoiledAngkor Wat is the region's most famous temple, and in fact, many people think that all the temples of the area are collectively known as Angkor Wat. It's actually the largest temple around, and is more than impressive - Posted by vagabondvoyager in Good Eats: Nibbling Our Way Across Asia | Jan 14, 2014
