Cambodia: The Sleeping Lotus

CAMBODIA | Tue, 24 Mar 2015 | By wtarmstrong | Views [539] | Comments [1]

These things happened within 12 hours of my arrival in Cambodia: (1) I bribed an immigration official so that we could cut to the front of the long visa stamping line; (2) I went to a pizza restaurant that was out of pizza; (3) I saw a tourist in a ... Read more >

CAMBODIA | Fri, 28 Nov 2014 | By dinagosse | Views [435]

Big day!! We got up extremely early to meet our tuk-tuk driver  at 4:30 am . We had to go get our entrance ticket for the Angkor temples. Popular place, and ticket lines can be long; I wish I'd remembered that to get our tickets yesterday. We could ... Read more >

: We say goodbye to Thailand, and fly into a new country for both of us: Cambodia!! A quick one-hour flight from Bangkok, we touch down into a very hot day. We thought Thailand was hot....   Arriving at the airport, we discover that we need ... Read more >

A Game of Cat & Mouse

CAMBODIA | Wed, 26 Nov 2014 | By mtmmeyer | Views [415]

Sorry it has taken so long to write.  I have been out rather early in the mornings (i.e. out the door by 5:00 am for sunrise over Angkor Wat).  The temples have been simply awesome (in the literal sense) and each has had its special moments;... Read more >

Cambodia - Siem Reap

CAMBODIA | Sun, 19 Oct 2014 | By megandrob | Views [213]

From Battambang, there are buses to Siem Reap that take about 3 hours, or a boat ride that takes about 6. We decided to take the scenic route for a change. We headed to the dock at 7am, and found that this "big boat" we had been told about, was just ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 3-4

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [241]

Cambodian BBQ.  Similar to Korean, but the grill is surrounded with vegetables and water that becomes a delicious soup with all the meat being grilled. We've got 7 kinds of meat here, chicken, pork, beef, kangaroo, squid, crocodile and fish. ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 3-3

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [279]

Pub street in Siem Reap. Literally every place is a bar, restaurant, massage parlour, or some combination of all three. Don't assume that pub street during the day is the same at night. Once the sun goes down the street transforms into a plethora ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 3-2

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [201]

If you get to chance to try Khmer food, I highly recommend it. Must cheaper than western food, and much more filling. This is Amok, a curry dish with meat and vegetables served in a coconut along with rice.

Cambodia - Day 3-1

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [219]

Ankor Thom area, another temple site. Don't underestimate how large these temples are. Bring lots of water, sunscreen and food. Otherwise be prepared to have to bargain hard with the vendors to get a half decent price.

Cambodia - Day 3

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [243]

Ankor Wat. Pictures and words do not fully explain how big these temples truly are. If you come to Asia, do not miss this experience. Also, if one vendor offers you 10 postcards for $1, and another offers you 1 postcard for $1 and you get 9 ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 2-1

CAMBODIA | Mon, 29 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [217]

Ok...Ha may have been onto something. After a shower, a massage and a bed, we're starting to feel like human beings again. Cambodia, you may be starting to redeem yourself.

Running Amok for Fish Amok

CAMBODIA | Fri, 26 Sep 2014 | By connectlocally | Views [5241]

The bowl is steaming hot. I deeply inhale the lemongrass and galangal and immediately start salivating.  And as soon as I put a spoonful in my mouth, my tastebuds "rush into a frenzy" - the original Malay meaning of the word "amok".  ... Read more >

Siem Reap - 3 months of experiences and fun

CAMBODIA | Thu, 25 Sep 2014 | By gina_holley | Views [641]

I recently finished my 10 weeks of teaching at Learn4Life in Siem Reap. My students ranged in age from 13 years old to their late 30’s with the majority being either High School or University students. Most of the University students also worked ... Read more >

Siem Reap and Learn4Life

CAMBODIA | Mon, 28 Jul 2014 | By gina_holley | Views [725]

I came to Siem Reap to teach at Learn4Life – another volunteer NGO which gives young adults/adults a chance to learn English at a very reasonable cost ($20 per semester). I am very impressed with the set-up here. The volunteers have the option ... Read more >

Preah Vihear Temple

CAMBODIA | Wed, 23 Jul 2014 | By gina_holley | Views [400]

Preah Vihear Temple is well worth the effort to go and see. Australia and other countries still have warnings about going to visit the place because of previous disputes between Thailand and Cambodia, but at the moment it is perfectly safe ... Read more >

La octava maravilla del mundo

CAMBODIA | Wed, 2 Jul 2014 | By miguel_rubi | Views [413]

Con una gran emoción en la piel y grandes expectativas, por fin llegábamos a una de las paradas que más anhelaba de este gran viaje: Angkor Wat. Ya me había leído todas las recomendaciones posibles: que no hace falta ... Read more >

Sunrise in Siem Reap

CAMBODIA | Thu, 5 Dec 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [1542]

I am cold! For the first time in the six months since I left New Zealand I am actually really quite cold. It is 5am, dark and the tuk-tuk is buzzing along the road that leads to Angkor Wat. Along with hundreds of other tourists, we are heading to the ... Read more >

Hats Off

CAMBODIA | Thu, 4 Jul 2013 | By martinbradley | Views [319]

I usually have little trouble with children. They know their place and I know mine. In rapscallion moments I have been called a ‘dinosaur’, a ‘mountain’ and things in Chinese I have not the wit to translate. Over time I have ... Read more >
