Stop Four: Last Energy

Siem Reap, Cambodia
Planned: 2 days, 1 night
Reality: 3 days, 4 nights

I arrived late on my first day. I lost my interest anyway, because I was in love already with Vietnam. And I blacklisted Phnom Penh due to some reasons. But I got to go, because my flight back home was from Bangkok. And the nearest city to Bangkok is? Siem Reap. And better yet, the biggest temple complex were just right around the corner. It'll be your one and only visit to Cambodia, Vick, so be it! I said to myself.

But then again, as I always been doing along this trip, I changed my mind again. And perception about Cambodia -Siem Reap, to be honest, because I won't ever change my perception about Phnom Penh. So yea, the city, once again, had my mind blown away. Temples aside, you know it's fascinating, Siem Reap's atmosphere was, oh well, so damn convenient.

Streets in Siem Reap
Pub Street, one of a few reasons I want to go back to Siem Reap
Angkor Wat, Angkor Temple Complex
Ta Phrom (Jungle Temple), Angkor Temple Complex

People, whoa what can I say, as always, were wonderful. Met some more international citizen but the highlighted nation was France, and China. I was trapped among these two people. Met this fancy French guy who introduced me to his gang, all speaking French and I was like, oh okay oh cool and stuff. Also this Chinese lady, my adventurous-temple-exploring-mate, who brought along her Chinese friend, and met so many other Chinese tourists along the temple trip and of course, all speaking Chinese, I was just like, oh okay oh cool and stuff. What a smile-making memory.

After all, I didn't go to any other tourist attractions but the temples. Just laid back, saving my energy for the temples, temples, restoring my energy before departing to Bangkok, and done. But I spent my last energy for something so, so delightful. I made a good decision.

Well I'm sorry I can't tell much about it.
I didn't explore lots of things in Siem Reap.
Because its best stuff, I conquered


  1. Hey soon-travel-writer!
    Keep inspiring the reader. And don't give up on your passion. Dreams don't work unless you do!
    Speaking about your writing, i think you should add more informations about the place you've visited. Such, "things to do", "how to get to", "what to eat" and bla bla bla :p
    It sounds mainstream, but at least most of the readers would like it. And it's just IMHO. You decide what to write :))

  2. Hahaha no I don't have enough space for that. However, I planned to use some other way to tell the readers more about detailed stuff. And I'm working on it now. Just wish the best for me ;)

    Thanks anyway for the support!

  3. Yeaaaah, that's better! Every writer has it's writing style. You need to show it off soon :p

    Anyway sir, may i have your signature? :))

  4. Kaka tulisannya bagus, siapa sih yang menginspirasinya? Suzanne Collins kah? :p
