So we spent the last few days in Siem Reap just chilling out…
**WARNING this post is in no particular order and i’m hungover so i’m not even sure if it makes any sense but its been a while so needs must**
Incase anyone missed it there is more about our fave things to do in Siem Reap here! As always thanks for reading like, share and comment! Enjoy.
We found an amazing place in Siem Reap that does $3 pizza. We headed there for a drink and then some scrummy food one sunny afternoon! The order got a bit messed up and I ended up with this…
…instead of a margarita PIZZA but Joe was happy to drink it and I got some pizza after I re-explained myself to the waiter and we all had a pretty good laugh about the situation. We didn’t do much for the remainder of that day and chilled by our pool and in our still very hot room.
Since we’ve been in Siem Reap I have literally developed a mango shake addiction to the point where I am researching the quality of Mango’s in NZ. So Joe ran out to get me one before bed! What a hero.
We had one mad night out at a little cocktail, roadside bar/cart we chose this one in particular because they had a laptop and you could choose what you wanted to listen to. Me and Joe went straight for the country and western and that pretty much guaranteed that we had the place to ourselves for the evening apart from one other Australian guy who turned out to be really really weird.
Safe to say in the morning we had headaches. But no problem we headed to the nearest cinema and for once Joe agreed to watch my choice of film. Moana. It was brilliant and we had a private cinema room and lots of snacks and coke. All for about $10 each not bad. Joe enjoyed it so much he watched 15 minutes then slept the whole time.
The last thing on our Siem reap bucket list was to get a Khmer BBQ, we’d scoped out the place that had good reviews and looked like the best value for money. It was amazing, we were so full that we had to keep having breaks i’ll load a picture of the set menu we had. As well as the meat you get alot of veg and noodles all cooked in a broth and the meat you all cook yourself so you can take your time. I would highly recommend it I personally think it was one of my favourite meals to date. Normally when they serve you here you get flags in the meat to tell you whats what. Although just before we ordered they had run out of flags so it was a bit like a bush-tucker trial trying to differentiate between the different meats but i’m pretty sure that we worked it out in the end.
We ended up leaving a little bit earlier than planned due to the hotel telling us at the last minute that they have no more availability due to it being New Year. We booked a night bus and already knew that Sihanoukville was to be our final Cambodian destination before spending the last few days of our trip in Bangkok!
