Siem Reap, Cambodia!

Our first stop was actually Phnom Penh, we spent around 5 hours in the city by exploring and having dinner before getting on our sleeper bus to Siem Reap. The sleeper bus was probably the comfiest transportation we went on throughout the trip. We had a bunk each and were given blankets, pillows and water. The best thing about the bus? THE SUPERFAST WIFI. The wifi in the bus was better than some hotels we stayed at. I managed to watch an hour long YT video with no disruptions whatsoever.

We arrived at Siem Reap around 5am where we were greeted by our Tuk Tuk driver sent by our hostel, The Siem Reap Hostel. It was by far the most luxurious hostel. It had a beautiful large pool, a delicious buffet breakfast, LARGE rooms, cinema room and everything else you would want. I had the buffet breakfast every morning and it was sooo healthy and delicious, we got to enjoy fresh fruits and pancakes everyday!

The main highlight of Siem Reap was of course the temples. They were all so beautiful but Ankor Wat, the biggest one, was definitely the most majestic temple I’ve been to. As soon as you’re there, you can just feel how majestic it is, it not only looks like a palace but feels like one too. All the other temples were gorgeous as well but nothing compared to Ankor Wat.

The only downfall was, it was raining like crazy in Siem Reap, so we didn’t get to enjoy the sunset at Ankor Wat as we had hoped (and paid for) but it was still beautiful. Not only was it royal, it rained royally as well.
