In Cambodia you can pay with to different currencies. ~
One is the local currency called Riel ( only notes) and the other one is USD (only notes) ~
Both of the currencies are widely spread and payments with a mix of both currencies are accepted. ~
Do not get confused if you pay in USD an get your cash back in Riel. 1 USD = 4000 Riel. At an ATM you'll be able to withdraw Riel and USD. 📷 @thelosttravellerblog

Inside the temples of the Angkor Park area.
We sometimes get the question if it's possible to buy the 3 Day ticket for the Angkor Park area, use it 2 times and then sell it to an other person.
This is not possible - because a picture from you will be on the ticket 📷 @kimmyhouston
Located inside the Angkor Thom temple district ~
for visiting the temples you need to buy an Angkor Park ticket ~
you have the following options - 1 Day ticket USD 37, 3 Day ticket USD 62 (available for 7 days) - 7 day ticket USD 72 (available for 30 days) ~
during your visit make sure that you don't loose your ticket - at most of the temples you need to show it 📷 @tinetinelp

All roads lead to Milawa... that's how the saying goes, right? 🤔
Well this one did at least and it brought me to the @brownbrothers Spring Wine & Food Festival where I sipped Prosecco in the sun while enjoying some really great live indie music.
It was a convenient 15 minute drive from @qualitywangarattagateway and the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
How did you spend your Saturday afternoon?

Look for the small street behind Pub Street, festooned with Chinese lanterns and step inside for a sip of old Shanghai.

Banteay Srei temple - one of my favorites (or my favourite temple I should say,) at the Angkor complex…
🔷
It is one of the few temples in Angkor to be commissioned by a Brahman instead of a King, perhaps the tutor of king Jayavarman V who was too young (15 yrs). 🔷
Considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of Angkorian art, Banteay Srei is cut in the stone of a pinkish hue and includes some of the finest stone carving anywhere on earth.
🔷
Banteay Srei means citadel of women and it is believed to have been built by women as the elaborate carvings are too fine for the hand of a man…

Temple visiting will definitely be a part while travelling in Cambodia.
~
The Angkor temples are located next to Siem Reap.
~
Here are 3 tips for visiting the temples:
~
1 - Preparation or guide -
The temples are massive, their lot’s of them around and they do have a lot of details. We aware that not everybody is interested into the history or the architecture. But we think to take the best out of your temple some preparation is necessary.
Alternatively or if you more the lazy person it's excellent to go on a tour with s licensed guide.
~
2 - When to buy your ticket?
~
If you have the time, buy your ticket the evening before your visit. With this ticket you’ll be able to see the sunset at one of the temples.
~
3 - Book a Tuk Tuk with us
~
We do offer Tours to the temples. Our drivers will give you basic information about the temple, will choose a different route to avoid the big crowds and supply you with free water during your tour. -
Click now the link in our Bio - choose category Siem Reap and then Tour 3. ~

Miss Wong Cocktail Bar picnic lunch for Travel Indochine Exploration
Phnom Penh - the capital of the Kingdom.
~
If you're travelling to Cambodia a visit of Phnom Penh should be definitely on your list.
~
It's a vibrant, multicultural and currently the fastest growing city in South East Asia.
~
For the length of your stay we recommend you something between 2-4 nights.
~
Here a 3 things on how you can spend your time.
~
1 - The Toul Sleng Genocide Museum & the Killing Fields -
In the 80's Cambodia turned into a communist state. Over 25% of the former population lost their life, caused by the Khmer Rouge.
The 2 places we mentioned above will show you the tragedy and will help you to understand why some people in Cambodia still struggle today.
~
2 - National Museum ~
If you're just somehow interested into the former Angkor Empire, the National museum is a must see.
Inside the National Museum are over 14.000 items, covering the prehistoric times to periods before, during and after the Khmer empire.
The items you'll see there will show you how deeply developed the former empire was.
Life sized statues and small items which once decorated the temples will be found in the museum.
We highly recommend you to take the audio guide.
~
3 - Tonle Bati Lake and the 2nd Ta Prohm temple
~
Around 30km south of Phnom Penh is a beautiful place for picnic and relaxing next to a lake. Near the lake you'll also find the temple.
-
It's a perfect place to have a quiet day outside of the capital. There normally are less tourists and under the week less Khmer people too.
Take a book with you, the hammock is waiting for you 😉 ~
