Last stop in Cambodia was in a town called Siem Reap. A town that has effectively built up on the international tourist circuit due to its proximity to the temples of Angkor Wat.
We stayed in the liveliest hostel in the town, Funky Flashpackers! Really cool decor, pool, 24 hour roof top bar and house music keeping the atmosphere going both day and night! Great place to stay...
As with Phnom Penh there were both parties to have and historical sites to visit. We spent a day at the jaw dropping Angkor Wat temples, built over a huge area and with immaculate detail they really deserve to be called one of the World's man made wonders.
Another interesting trip was to the Cambodian National war museum. An interesting insight into the modern wars that have affected Cambodia over the past 60 years or so. The guides are also all people affected by conflict and genocide in Cambodia themselves so that added extra impact to the visit.
By night we partied in the hectic bar street until the early hours. What made the stay even better was the rendezvous we managed to organise with a lot of the guys we travelled Laos and Phnom Penh with! On the downside though that meant more goodbyes as everyone went their separate ways!!
Overall I think I've enjoyed Cambodia the most of Asia so far, the people, learning about the history and always the parties too.
14 hour bus journey to Vietnam... Writing this entry from the back end of the journey, which has been interesting to say the least! Sleeping in something that resembled a coffin to start, crazy change mid way though and another weird boarder crossing!
Always look forward to the next stage in the trip and Vietnam promises to be one of the best!
