i Heart Cambodia!

Yes, I do!

After months of waiting, I finally conquered Siem Reap! And my expectations were all met! Woot woot!

Went with my friends from previous work and the more they made this trip a memorable one! It was an exciting experience! Exploring the temples and having a taste of Cambodia’s culture was, indeed, a learning experience.

Cambodians are nice people! From our driver Song, to the hotel’s receptionist, to the waiters and to the stall owner’s! I just enjoyed dealing with them… well, I got a little tired (well maybe a little more haha) negotiating with the sellers in the old and night markets. They gave me a hard time with their merchandise! But it was fun and all worth it! I got my money’s worth, I think hahaha!

Paying in US Dollars was a little intimidating. But what can we do…. I estimated to spend only about $100 for my entire Cambodia trip (even noting that I’ll be eating like a King! Haha) but I actually spent double that amount ($200). So better prepare more to survive any Cambodia trip financially 🙂

Their airport looks like a resort! Just enough size but cozy.  That explains the very pricey terminal fee (@ $25/each)

Again – i Heart Cambodia! I can’t wait to go back!
