SIEM REAP : DAY TOUR 4TH DAY

Suggested itinerary for Day Four in Siem Reap :
 
Option 1 - USD13
In the morning visit ancient temples at the Rolous Group - Lolei, Preak Ko, Bakong and later the floating village of the Tonle Sap.Take the boat trip to the see the floating market and fish farm.
 
Hotel staff where I stayed don't encourage me to go for this trip.
According to them many people will try to disturb and many scammers there. So, I followed their advice and give this a miss!
 
Option 2 - USD 29
In the mroning go to Beng Melea and on the return visit the Rolous Group.
 
Aisshhh... ruined temples again???? OMG!!! although I am dying to see Beng Melea..but since they told me this place is in the jungle...mmmmm...I have a mixed feeling about this long journey and go to jungle. What if somebody kidnap me or ask me to join the guerilla ??? hehehe me with my imagination again.
 
Option 3 - USD18
In the morning go to the Kampong Pluk on the return visit Rolous Group.
 
hehehehe... I end up go for option 3. Ok... but I got very annoyed when that boat driver keep asking for tip tip tip...
 
I end up shouted at him on the way back...
" Bring me to the shore NOWW!!!! I give you the damn tip!!!"
 
After said that...of course..I feel a bit worry if he would thrown me into that huge resevoir....OMO!!!
I am sure drown....here goes my damn precious life!
Who asked me dare enough to shout at people just because he is damn annoying!!!
 
Yeah... it is my intention to reward him some cash...but I hate people asking me like that!!!
I felt awful...
I gave him USD5/- just because I saw his mom collecting empty cans and bottle to sell.
He must be very poor...thats how I feel.
 
 
 
There...there... that annoying boat driver!!!!
 
He also not satisfied because I don't take that small boat for another USD5 to visit the the mangrove area...he keep delaying a drove slowly and keep asking me to take one...and I keep saying nicely...NO NO NO NO (yeah...now I sounded like singing that APink Song)
 
View of Kampong Pluk...worth to visit...despite the annoying people I met!



 
see see..that waiting boat made me hesitate to take the small boat to visit the mangrove area...
They are waiting to push sale...and that I hate the most...give me a lot of stress yo!!!
I don't think I strong enough for not blowing up my temper!!! hahahaha....
I just don't want to scold people at foreign country...Oh I end up not coming back in piece...hehehehe



 
On the way back visited the rolous Group...you see that pink place...apparently there are local wedding going on...I can say their culture is almost similar to Malay Wedding here.

 
Lolei is the small ruined temple

 
the only one with cow statue is Bakong


 
I love Preak Ko the most because this place was huge like Angkor and surround with huge lake too..


 
amaze me the most is how the seashell and sea sand on top of this temple????
 
The end of my Siem Reap visit!
 
I will try to write on Siem Reap visit tips, the Do (s) and the Don't (s) soon.
 
My next trip will be a short visit to Hatyai in early December.
This will be a family trip before sending my Dad off for Surgery.
Hope he recover soon and hope he could enjoy the short trip too.

SIEM REAP : DAY TOUR THIRD DAY

2 days of temples trip....oh gosh!!! I am sure I am overdosed of all those ruined temples by now...I decided to go easy on myself hhehehehehe...my body need some treatment yo!!!
Woke up lazily on day three in Siem Reap.
Ah...you think I will go shopping???
Ah! me not a shopping freak when travelling....Old market? night Market?? I think I am going to vomid going through that place over and over again..basically I was there everyday every night...I saw they are selling the same thing on every stall everywhere.
Mostly Thailand and China made. Being an asian myself...all those items is nothing new to me.
I can even get it from my home country.
So shopping??? Not necessary for me.


Place I stayed near to donated school...so every morning...full of student laughter.
If hair salon at my home country full of branded shampoo line up on the shelf...here in Siem Reap i can see the hair salon with Rejoice,Head & Shoulder and many more common brand shampoo.

Found this place call Bodia Spa.
I can say whoever visit to Siem Reap shouldn't give this place a miss.
Seriously the tonic massage which give me experience of khmer lymphatic massage cost me USD36 is totally worth it!
Beautiful place and very relaxing after all those temples visit last two days!




After a refreshing treatment...treat myself with nice khmer lunch...that street vendor selling spciy dried cockles and I was told that snack is common and favorite among local.
mmmm... wonder how it taste but its too bizzare for me to taste.


got myself a half day tuk tuk and went to visit War museum.


an eye opener to me....and horrified real story on war....I can say I don't think any of us want to experience those horrible war!


I told ya froggie...danger! mines!
Kboommmm!!!1
You don't listen....
Look at you...'mati katak'....flat to the ground froggie!!!!
God bless!!!
Oh... you need to pay entrance fees USD5.
I read in review were saying some local there will act as tour guide and tell story for USD20 fees.
I was quite lucky for having chance to tour the place quietely on my own.
I guess they dare not disturb me because I look more like Cambodian...kekekekekeke
But I being generous...end up putting in some USD into the donation box.
The least I could do to help!


You can always visit Land Mine Museum too...
It is interesting here too.
I read and watch inspire and bravery story of one man.
You can read the story about Aki Ra at  http://www.cambodialandminemuseum.org/
You need to pay USD3 for entrance fee.
Oh...don't forget to be generous here...donate some for the children who live behind the museum.
I donated USD10 there...

On the way back I visited angkor Market (just a small mini market) WTH!!!!
and also visited Lucky Mall....my verdict on this Mall??? WTH!!! just small mall...Oh well...what do I expect in Siem Reap???
