i scanned thru our pre-tour emails after we got back and one of my friends stated the siem reap is a must-see for seeing angkor wat is the whole point of the trip and really, siem ream did make a point.

it was another 6 hour trip form phnom penh to siem reap and we took the Mai Linh bus again. and we arrived at siem reap at around 2pm and went to Ei8ht rooms hotel as to where we will stay.

we were suppose to go next to Thailand the day after arriving at siem reap but we were told that borders to Thailand are closed for the meantime and that there has been an advisory to cancel travels to Thailand. so we decided to check for airlines that would take us back to the philippines and decided to take a flight to singapore and spend a few days there and take a singapore-philippine route.

now at the hotel, they suggested that we buy tickets to Angkor Wat for the following day to avoid long lines of tourists who would want to see the temples. we did as what we've been told and proceeeded to Angkor Wat after arranging our things inside our rooms. we arrived at Angkor Wat at around 5pm, bought tickets for the following day, and to our luck, they allowed  us to go inside since its already late in the afternoon and that we have tickets already for the following day. so, having bought a 20usd one-day ticket to see a UNESCO Heritage site, we head on to see the sunset. it was a spectacular view and it was quite pleasant to see our bus mates at the Angkor Wat also. =)

we headed back to our place, went out again to look for other hotels since we only have one night reservation at Ei8ht Rooms and that we needed a cheaper place to stay in considering we've made extra spendings on unexpected flight bookings. we found one, quite father than the previous one but it was lovely and they have a pool and what more can you ask for 20USD/per night/per room and we stiill have to divide it into four since there's four of us staying in this big room.

it was actually fantastic that we decided to stay at siem reap for three nights. and even three nights wasnt enough!
