Good morning Cambodia! Free hotel breakfast, at long last.
Cambodia was a former French colony, hence the baguette.
We got two tuktuk through Bou Savy and a tour guide named Sen for our trip to Angkor Wat.
This is Sen.
You can actually rent a bicycle to go around Angkor Wat, but are you kidding me. (I’m not an athletic person, as you can glean from my posts.)
The stone structures and engravings are incredible.
These huge tree just grew around the ruins.
Lunch! I had this yummy lychee-flavored soda.
Here we are, entering the main temple. Angkor Wat is the largest religious (first Hindu, then Buddhist) monument in the world.
This post has hardly any words, but words and even these photos are inadequate. You have to be there, to fully appreciate the scale of this complex.
Heaven and hell.
We planned to wait for the sunset at Angkor Wat, but we finished the tour at 3 PM, and I personally couldn’t wait three hours under the hot sun in my sweaty clothes. So off we go to Bou Savy to freshen up and fix our things.
Look at the chandeliers in Cambodia’s airport.
We boarded the 10:30 flight and arrived in Manila at half-past two. Home. :)
Total expenses for Cambodia is USD 206.
Total expenses overall: USD 898.58 or around PhP 42,000.

Thanks to Grace for making the Excel file. :D
I almost didn’t go on this trip, but I’m glad I did.
My thanks to my friends, especially to June, who painstakingly read every blog post ever written about trips to these countries, and so I pass on this information to you. :)
