Discovering Siem Reap, Cambodia

Siem Reap = Angkor Wat Most absolutely right! That's the synonym of Siem Reap.
Day 1 Our flight AK 542 left Malaysia for Siem Reap at 6.50am. We landed around 8.30am local time.
Right after landing, our driver, Safy already waiting for us
First view of Siem Reap town. Wow, dirt road and whatnot. Our first destination was the Tonle Sap Lake to check out the water village
Ticket is USD 15 per person.  An additional USD 5 if you choose to ride on the small boat at the village.  We opted not to.


Floating Village of Kampong Phlouk
We checked in at our hotel afterward.  Had a nice rest before heading out to Night Market / Old Market We had our dinner at Muslim Kitchen Family Restaurant, just nearby the market. USD 28 dinner for 7 was reasonable & affordable. I tried Khmer food : Spicy soup & sour soup. Sedap!
Day 2:  Temple Hopping USD 37 per person -  1 Day Pass
First stop - Angkor Thom. Our luck, it was cloudy and grey that day 😌
