For The Love of the Kingdom of Siam

Wrapping up our travel to the Land of Khmers, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap is really a timeless beauty. I am just so overwhelmed with the experience I got and I will definitely go back and have more time in that place.

We have already arranged a minivan going to our next destination at 1100 in the morning. We did not know there was a tuktuk waiting for us in our hotel. The tuktuk driver was outrage of the delay, while we were being transferred to another hostel. lol The minivan is stationed about 10 minutes away from our hotel. We were on the road at 1130 in the morning and the ride was really cool while we were listening to the local Khmer sound.

Now, we are really off to the place I have been wanting to see for quite a long time already - the Kingdom of Siam, or now known as Thailand.

Siem Reap: The Great Gate to Angkor

No comments:
From Paris of the Orient to the capital of the Land of Khmers, our Asian Adventure continues towards the Great Gate of Angkor, Siem Reap.

We have departed at Phnom Penh before midnight via bus. After 5 hours of travel, we saw our hotel guide waiting for us on the bus stop bearing our name. It was seven in the morning when we were greeted with warmth at the hotel.

After early check-in, we took our breakfast and got ourselves excited riding the tuktuk going to the gates of Angkor. It was a precious moment for me because this is one of the places I wanted to go before I die, my big dream to see the stunning beauty of the Angkor Wat and I was like overwhelmed with this excitement.

Shia LaBeouf Naked Transformation

The Transformers actor Shia Labeouf had transformed like you've never seen before. A heartbreaking (and naked) interpretive dance of Shia LaBuff and actress Denna Thomsen is shown on Sigur Rós' new video for “Fjögur Píanó”.

Before I continue my posts on the Asian Invasion that my kumare and I had, I just want to share once again this song by Angeline Quinto, "Piliin Mo Ang Pilipinas". My friend Tsai, from Taiwan is totally loving this tourism video promotion that was launched for Choose Philippines Campaign of ABSCBN.

Top Tourist Attractions in Ho Chi Minh

It was a little bit weird when we got to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I have always known that as a tourist or a foreigner, I should never give away my passport to anyone in any foreign land. But the case is not always the same like in Ho Chi Minh. As you checked in to the hotel, your passport are being held in the reception until you checkout. Even in the travel buses, the conductor gets to keep them while you are on board. It was a bit uneasy like we were held as captives. But it did not stop us to enjoy the Parisian like city of Ho Chi Minh.

Here are my top tourist attractions in Ho Chi Minh, the Paris of the Orient.

Cambodia: The Land of Khmer


I barely knew Cambodia about its history, culture and its people. But I still got a memory of this beautiful place that captured me and got on my travel bucket list. I've seen it from the books and to the big screen Lara Croft: Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie. It is a treasure that have been known to the world, the grandeur of Angkor Wat.

Ho Chi Minh: The Paris of the Orient


Just what my fellow travel blogger, Chyng, said: "Summer is forever". And indeed it is. So here's for another Asian Travel, probably a continuation of my Amazing Race from Singapore to Malaysia after two years. Like what I said in this post, I will continue my Asian travel. This time to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Actually from Singapore, you can travel to Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam with either a train, bus or coach and minivan as they are interconnected by Land.
