One must remember, when you visit Siem Reap you need to be prepared to visit temples and temples and temples again. Just like Bagan,Myanmar in Siem Reap if you don't need to spend too many days to do your day trips. 2 to 3 days is fine to visit all those major temples. Suggested itinerary for day 1 : In the morning take the small tour to Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom , Bayon,Victory Gate, Thommanom, Chau Say Thevoda, Ta Keo, Ta Phrom, Banteay Kdei, Sras Srang, Prasat Khavan and finish it with Sunset at Phnom Bakheng - normally tuk tuk price is between USD13 - 15. Some charged you up to USD20. Not higher than that price. My itinerary for day 1 : In the morning take small tour to South gate Angkor Thom then visited Central angkor Thom ( Bayon , Phimeanakas , Terrace of the Elephants , Terrace of the Leper King ), Prasat Kavan , Banteay Kdei . Go back hotel for shower....very very hot...don't think I can continue without freshing up first. Then continue my tour in

HANOI - Ancient Village Day Trip

My first day trip in Hanoi is a visit to Duong Lam Ancient Village. I hate day trip by the way. I prefer walk on my own freely explore the place. No choice, Hanoi don't have the infrastructure like Seoul or Beijing.     Rise and my french style buffet breakfast place   anxiously waiting for my tour leader to come pick me up at 8am. It was a small group. Me and another senior citizen couple from Taiwan. They are so loving couple by the way.   on the way ...this is my first sight of Hanoi City...OMO!!!! so dirty ar??? Aiyo!!! I have too high expectation for a developing country like Vietnam.   people busy eating breakfast. our place have 'mamak style' coffee Just sit on that lowered kindergarden style stool and they can just enjoy their breakfast there... mmmmm.... how am I going to adapt to this culture???? worryyyyyyy!!!!   everywhere about motor motor headache seeing them
