The journey from Myanmar to Cambodia felt more like a marathon of doing nothing when in reality we were going to be flying into and out of three countries that day. As a tip never plan for a 9 hour layover, it’s boring and airport food is expensive and nasty! I was way too close to eating some McDonald’s gold!
We are currently in the latter end of our visit to Siem Reap, the booming little town in Cambodia known around the world as the place to stay whilst you explore the nearby Angkor Wat. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves on this one, but overall it was not one if my favorite places so far. The shift from Myanmar, which was very genuine and not very touristy, to Siem Reap where there is literally a hostel or hotel every 5 feet, has been tiring to say the least. The temples were fun to explore though and are built in a really cool style. The heat and our laziness, as well as the daily $20 entrance fee, kept us from walking through every major temple but we rented bikes for a day and bopped around exploring the sites and finding some hidden gems!
Tomorrow we are going to try and hitch to a town called Battambang. We here there are some rad coconuts and that is neat. What more reason do we need?
