Visit to Cambodia

Here a few pictures of Cambodia. Our visit was quite short but full of interesting stuff to see. Cambodia is definitely a place I'd like to go back to. I had heard that Angkor vat is amazing but didn't think I'd be so excited about old temples. The day at the ruins was great in the end. All the buildings had their own special feeling and I got really excited taking pictures of the arcitechture. And the challenge of the day was trying to get as much as possible with the money we already paid our tuktuk driver, since he's interpretation of 'I'll take you around where ever you want for the whole day for 12dollars' was a bit different then ours.

The most peaceful market I've been to

Night bus first class
From Siem Reap to Koh Phangan we had quite a journey! In total we spent 30 hours sitting on a bus to Bangkok, then one to Chumphon, then a ferry and a tuktuk taxi to our hotel. In Chumphon the bus dropped us 7km from the city centre at 4 a.m. and continued towards the centre... There was a really helpful gentleman offering a terribly overpriced taxiride waiting for us on the stop. Great how they take care of us travellers here! Well we said politely no and started walking towards the direction we thought was right and luckily some genuinely helpful picked us up and took to the train station for free. There we where able to book the ferry to the island then. And luckily we met irish Alan who came all the way from Siem Reap to Koh Phangan also. The journey would have been quite an experience alone.
