Hello lovelies, how have you all been? Just got back from a little overseas break and wanted to share with you some highlights. Cambodia was the best developing country destination I’ve ever experienced. It was even better than what friends had foretold. Despite the widespread poverty, dusty air, and basic lifestyle, the charming animals, lingering smiles and saporous food of the Cambodians captivated all of my senses. Although it was only a short trip, you will see that we made full use of our time in Siem Reap. So without further ado, here are some momentos from Cambodia, in chronological order.
We got around in a tuktuk, the most authentic way to sightsee. Our driver Poh (an absolute delight) can be hired at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We learnt how silk is made at Artisans Angkor, enjoyed the best full-body massage at Frangipani House, got addicted to Cambodian food, got a kick out of $1 cocktails at The Ivy and played with flirtatious kittens, visited ancient temples (including Angkor Wat, the Tomb Raider one and various others which started all to look alike…), indulged in a few buffets, enrolled in a stone-carving class, and visited a children’s charity, ‘Anjali House‘, set up to teach impoverished kids photography, English and other arts, as well as providing them with food and medical care. We cannot wait to go back and volunteer!
A special thanks to a dear friend who recommended the best places for us to visit, eat and experience in her adopted home. You made our short voyage the focal point of our trip. *’Thank you!’ in Cambodian*
