Travel Blogs from Siem Reap
Yeah, thats right, I'm in Cambodia. Sorry for the delay in the blog, but I have had quite a busy transition from Hanoi, back to Ho Chi Minh City, and eventually to Siem Reap.
My week wasn't anything special. Despite my wishes, on Friday I was involved with the "International Day" where my program traveled to Eastern International University to discuss about our culture and participate in other cultural activities. I say "despite my wishes" because I was ...

We arrived in Siem Reap bus station at 8.30 pm after 13 hours on the bus. We then took a tuk tuk to our hotel.
