Travel Blogs from Siem Reap
When planning this blog, we had every intention of writing updates every day. Honestly, they were the best intentions! However, we stupidly forgot to calculate in the fact we both like a drink which can easily lead to an entire days plans being written off!
On Thursday night we met up with an old friend from Cornwall ( …
It's much easier to get up at 5am when there's something like Angkor Watt to go and see. However, it still won't stop me moaning like a child. After sitting in a cold shower for 10 minutes and with Craig and Emma already in the Tuk Tuk waiting for us outside (our driver was a kind local man named Ti, who for $15 would drive our lazy …
... found out my favourite elephant shirt, purchased in BKK a few weeks ago shrunk in the wash, devastated is an understatement. Although, it now fits like all of my other clothes. Alice's breakfast was pretty decent, the biggest bowl of museli and fruit i've ever seen whilst my breakfast burrito ended up all down my elephant shirt...I was still going to wear it to the temples. After a decent breakfast in the beach bar (all of the floor was sand) on the 4th floor of ...
... left it was steep drop to the moat and the right was dense jungle bush and tree roots, rocks, mud patches and low lying branches where what we had to avoid along the path. There were a few falls (myself not included) and near misses but everyone made it safely, but those that fell were a lot less clean then when we started. After another photo op riding through the North gate we cycled a little further to a café where we stopped for our pre-ordered lunch. Tired ...
So leaving Laos now and off to Cambodia. We've heard some good, bad and ugly things about Cambodia especially when it comes to this country’s history. Khmers have been to hell and back struggling with poverty, political instability and genocide all within the past 40 years. Despite this we've heard they are amongst the friendliest of people you’ll ever meet. So we were looking forward to learning a bit of Cambodia’s culture, meeting people and investigating the ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
This is a great guesthouse located on street 20 in Wat Bo. It's at the end of a lane of guesthouses, away from street noise and traffic. The rooms are spacious and spotless have WiFi and are great value at $8. The guesthouse is behind the main house with a relaxing restaurant/lounge area that makes you feel hidden away from the outside world. It has a nice family atmosphere between staff and guests - always lots of smiles and laughter. It's just a very easy going, relaxed and charming place to stay. The old market is about 10-15 minute walk along the river and the Royal Gardens about 5 minutes.
I've stayed here a couple of times for extended periods and have always found it to be peaceful and quiet for sleeping - I can leave the windows open all night and not be disturbed by any noise save for crickets and the occassional dog (and I'm a light sleeper).
I really recommend this place for anyone who wants a quiet place to chill out at, friendly people to chat to, a good night's sleep and to get away from the hustle and hassle of pub street.
