Angkor Wat is something that almost everyone visits when planning a trip to Cambodia. Undoubtedly once – in – a – lifetime, must – see sight.
This trip was my boyfriend’s idea, some of the travelers that he had met on one of his far east trips recommended Cambodia, mostly because of its historical treasure.
But what is there to see in Siem Reap except these grandiose temples?
Pub Street is the place where Westerners gather and enjoy Cambodian and international food and drinks.
There are places where you can actually cook your own dishes (of course with the help and assistance of the staff) that creates an unique experience.
For shopping addicts there are a lot of street vendors, shops and markets where you can buy all sorts of souvenirs, candles, scented sticks, scarfs, jewelry, clothes and lots of other stuff.
I bought dozens of things over there. Scarfs in different colors for my friends, silver earrings for my sister and myself, candles in all colors and shapes.
Some of them I used immediately when we returned to our room in order to make up a little romance that we would’ve missed out during the day.
For the book readers there are plenty of book stores where new and second – hand books can be bought for decent prices. I was so eager to buy books, that in the end I hardly packed my suitcase without leaving anything behind 🙂
The adventurists can book a one day excursion to floating villages of Tonle Sap Lake to encounter people with totally different lifestyles from the one we’re all used to see and live;
Or take the laid back approach and just enjoy the city scenery without much planning ahead.
Either way you’ll truly love it!
