First day in Seam Reap
Angkor Travel Blog› entry 1 of 8 › view all entries
For Cambodia trip, it's very easy me to get the VISA, it's take only 1 day by a lot of agency @ Khao San Rd. (1,200 Baht). I go to Seim Reap by booking the bus @ Khao San Rd cost @ 500 Baht per person. It's seem quite cheap ticket. The bus will get u @ guesthouse in Khao San since 7.00 AM but bus will leave on 9.00 AM. please dont beleive that the bus will arrive as the schedule. As the schedule the bus suppose to arrive Seip Reap @ 5 or 6 PM..but u might not belive it!!
I arrive Poipet @ 3 PM and reach Siem Reap @ 11.30 PM. How crazy bus too late. Note u: It's the tricky of the bus to arrive Seim Reap too late becasue they would like to take you to their contract guesthouse. You will not know where are u now, and i am sure that if u were all of traveller in the bus as us you will not move to anywhere til tomorrow morning.
For my case, Approached guesthouse by the bus is not too bad, it 's quite cheap (really cheap)..so it's not dififcult me to overnight here (Winter Guesthouse). Aha..not only me..but all passenger stay here. .. so tried for the frist day of trip...
In early morning i suppose to get moody coz this guesthouse is out of my plan but so surprise with all staff are very friendly, it's so warmful..it's quite impression for me to continious staying here. After i survey around my guesthouse and find that it 's quite far from downtown as old market that i can enjoy nightlife and hang out here. So i decide moving my ass to Old market where i can find a lot of guesthouse. However, before i leave from Winter Guesthouse, i have a chance to survey a big wet market (really local market, not same as old market anymore) Wow, i 's stuck me, it's the real life, u can absorb the local life.
As it 's a very big wet market, that 'a why there are a lot of thing here, and i can get a new backpack bag here, everything is same as i buy Alpha North in BKK but Waaow..it's cost only 15 US$, on the hand i spend over 100 US$ for the sameone in BKK. How cheap!!
Okey ..it's time to leave here, i take the tuktuk from winter guesthouse drop me @ Oldmarket, and as i feel the driver looks so kind. Therefore i ask them to service me for all this trip to Angkor Wat.
Note u: All of guesthouse will have the tuktuk belong to them, because u can be sure that u are safe because the tuktuk will not give u some tricky because u can comment all to guesthouse. Anyway, all tuktuk charge can negotiate!!
