Just like the first couple of times, I didn't know what to expect. Cambodia's ever changing landscape is full of surprises.
For my third trip, I travel with my wife Pa, her sister Pep, her boyfriend Sam, Thao, Savong, and Matt, who's never been to Cambodia before. We shared the same excitement and overwhelming feeling of anticipation. Returning to a place our parents called home, a country we're not accustomed to but consider our home, at least for me anyway.
The flight on Asiana Airlines from Sea-Tac airport to Phnom Penh was about 18 hours. Ten hours to Incheon, Korea with an hour and a half lay-over plus another five hours to Phnom Penh. It was LOOOONG.
I planned to write some deep meaningful, soul searching bullshit but the photos of the country and its beautiful people says it much better than I can.
Note: It was about 97 F with 100% humidity everyday we were there. You know its hot when the locals says its HOT!
Pro-Life-Tip: Visit around November to February for a cooler experience.
I copied that from their website because its true! Highly recommend to stay there.
Wat Phnom, New Year Celebration
Pub Street, Siem Reap
We stayed at Advaya Residence, in my opinion, the best hotel experience during the trip. The rooms were pleasant, the staff attentive, and the food was terrific.
After we settled, we decided to go out to check the famous Pub Street in Siem Reap. Pub Street is where it's at for the nightlife experience Siem Riep, its an all-out party with bars, clubs, and restaurants that stay open until 4 am.
Phnom Kulen National Park - Waterfall
I fell in the water with my camera - surprisingly it still kind of works!
It is still beautiful as ever.
