    Perfect time to visit post covid. With less crowd and better social distancing, this gave me ample opportunity to capture sunrise view from Angkor Wat. There are lots of history and story behind Angkor Wat. I would recommend one to engage local tour guide to bring you around as he shares stories of the construction of Angkor Wat. Try to complete the tour before 9 am as heat can be taxing here.

    I had a nice time discovering and learning through the free tour about pepper plantation ! The view is amazing, the taste of every spices La Plantation makes was lovely and very helpful to know how to use all the spicies.
    We also did the buffalo tour (I recommend doing it in the morning first thing cause in the afternoon it gets very warm for the buffalos and makes things harder for them)

    We visited Koh rong in April 2022, it is a beautiful island, 40 min boat ride from Sihanoukville. But a trek from Siem Reap. We can tell it is currently a skeleton of its former self. Post pandemic it is clearly been hit hard. the tourist dependant island has some run downs bars, abandoned businesses on 4k beach and maintenance is needed from top to toe. Coming here will help the locals, so spend lots of money - they need it.
    • Travel / Ferry (40mins) from Sihanoukville to Main Beach. We paid $25 open return ticket per person. We got the night bus from Siem Reap.
    • Resturants - We stayed 6 days and went to Encafe (great italian), Tree House (lovely bar on beach walk past white beach), Nest Beach Club (Amazing burgers / young traveller vibes / parties / cheap beer) and grabbed street food some days.
    • Night / Nightmare Bus - Siem Reap - Sihanoukville Nightmare - 12 hrs of tec music, noisy bus drivers, horns being honked every 3-5 seconds, bumpy roads, over 1,000+ stops and a crazy bus driver - we didnt sleep at all/but we survived)
    • Travelling Around the Island?
    You can walk some of it, but a motorbike is needed $10 per day, rent from main beach/ near pier. Or boat Taxis.Or enjoy the area you are staying in.
    • Where to stay? Depending on budget, you can pay £200+ per night for a resort, or you can do £25 per night for a basic beach front bungalow (like we did)
    • Shops: Pharmarcies, Snacks, Clothes, Street Food, All your essentials are here - but at a premium. Expect to pay more as they had to transport it here.

    ******TOP TIPS*****
    • Bring high level DEET spray. You will be eaten alive by Sandflies & mosquitoes as all the accomodation is mainly on the beach front.
    • Bring CASH* no where takes credit cards and there is NO ATM!!
    • Get a room with A/C.
    • Bring Handsanitiser, not everywhere has sinks or handwashing facilities.

    Okay these photos are from 2007 so I guess it has changed a bit.

    When I went there was just me and a Japanese woman.

    The roads were less than perfect but the experience with my 1 USD unlicensed guide was fantastic.
    You'll see it had only recently been cleared of mines but you still had to stay between the HALO markers.
    Just having a reminisce.

    This was not what we were expecting. It far exceeded our expectations.
    The guy running the place gives a really good guide and explains the history and techniques of growing the pepper. He is fun and knowledgeable and extremely passionate about what he does.
    The trip into the farm from Kep has beautiful scenery. All round, we had a really pleasant trip.

    Nicknamed the Tomb Raider temple, the movie was filmed at this location. The trees here are gigantic! Officials been working with UNESCO and other bodies to restore the ruined temples. The powerful forces of nature (roots of trees) have overtaken the stone built temples. Bring lots of water with you as well as mosquito repellant! Else, they'll leave you with lots of lovely bites on your arms.

    We was on a cruise , got a Tuk tuk outside the port for 5 hours and this was one of the stops. Cambodia being a poor country made the journey there very bumpy due to the terrible roads but an experience. This temple a bit worn but beautiful, lots of different parts to it so making it an interesting historical place with there own not so wild monkeys about.

    So there are 3 main activities here -

    Kulen Waterfall - amazing must do and do take dip in pool
    1000 Lingas - on the way and interesting place
    Pagoda - a temple at top of mountain with huge reclining budha statue

    All in all its a good full day plan and is recommended as it covers nature, history and local culture.

    Also on the way you will get some good food options and joints

    This is another beautifully preserved temple dating to around 967AD The Citadel of Women has intricate carvings that will take your breath away. The ruins are minature compared to Angkor Wat, but this little gem hidden in the jungle about 20 miles from Angkor, is worth the visit.

    Go first thing in the morning before it is too hot and over run with other tourists. Take some water too. Good footware is helpful but there is minimal climbing here...so mobility constrained individuals will have an easier time of it. Love it!!

    Bayon is our favorite temple amount the Angkor complex. A three-day pass was perfect for getting to see the most important sights.

    We stopped at the Wat Krom Temple and marveled at the beauty of the site. Initially you see isolated stupas (where the deceased are honored) and then you travel up the road to see other sites, including a great view of the city from above.

    Sihanoukville is an amalgam of contrasts (from dusty city streets to the calm of different temples) - don't be put off by the city streets and all the dirt. This is a city in transition and it will be interesting to see it in 2 - 3 years. The people seem particularly industrious and energetic.

    Not far from "Neak Pean", stands the small "jungle temple" of "Ta Som"! It was also built, in the 12th century, by the famous "builder king" of the Khmer empire, King Jayavarman VII and follows the well-known "Bayon" architectural style. "Ta Som" is a single tower monument, surrounded by three enclosing walls adorned with beautiful carved "Apsaras", the "celestial dancers" that are also another symbol of Cambodia. "Ta Som" has never been restored and an old fig tree can still be seen around one of its entrances. As it is far from the "Grand Circuit", it is not very much visited, allowing lovely moments of peace and enlightenment. Enjoy!

    NOTE: At time of writing (February 2022), the Royal Palace is currently closed due to Covid-19 and entry is prohibited, meaning you cannot get inside the gates to look at Silver Pagoda nor the other palace buildings. there also appears to be maintenance work being undertaken on several of the buildings, so a lot of scaffolding up.
    However, there are several rooftop bars providing nice views of the palace grounds, including at the Palace Gate hotel, which is where we stayed.

    Wat Banan Temple is for those who likes a serene quiet environment away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The Hill itself is pretty much the highest terrain in the area overlooking the flat rice fields. Don't forget to explore the hidden caves. Some even speculated that the caves in Banan reaches all the way to Thailand? Can not confirm. You will need full energy climbing those stairs, but at the top the scene is amazing!
