The Cambodian Landmine Museum and School
67, Cambodia
+855 15 674 163
www.cambodialandminemuseum.org

My friend wanted to see the Landmine Museum so we passed by on our 2nd day since it was on the way to the temples. Honestly, if it were just me I wouldn’t really go out of the way for it unless you may be really interested. It will tell you the history of how landmine’s were in cambodia and how they actually find it and deactivate it. There were also samples of the different kinds of landmines.

Bantaey Srie
National Road No. 6a,
Siem Reap, Cambodia

This is one of the temples which is around 45 mins away from the city. Its not that big but its very beautiful. It had pinkish sandstones that covered the walls which made it more beautiful. There are other temples in the same area that are better than the ones near Angkor Wat.

Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor
1 Vithei Charles de Gaulle,
Khum Svay Dang Kum, Cambodia

We researched on things to do in Siem reap and this was one of them. To watch an Apsara traditional dance in Raffles Hotel. We went on a friday, but you will have to ask your hotel to check if there is a dance on that night. Honestly, I think its very similar to the Thai traditional dance so I actually didn’t care to watch this again. But if you are interested in their culture, its nice to see maybe at least once.

Food was nothing great for the price, this is where I tried the very popular Amok which is their most famous Khmer dish. It wasn’t really my type but others actually liked it.

Bayon Temple
Siem Reap, Cambodia

The third temple on the first day. It would have been nice if we went here when it wasn’t raining. This temple is still near the Angkor wat area so its easy enough to go here after Ta Prohm and Angkor Wat, since it was too hot already around noon, we went back here before sunset.

Angkor Cafe
Angkor Wat , Siem Reap
Cambodia

I realize that I am not a fan of Cambodian food in particular but I like trying new things. So the food here is good enough for you to try some traditional food like curry and shrimp rolls while you can see Angkor Wat from here. Its also a good break in the temple area to get some cool air from the air conditioner since its just so hot outside.

Siem Reap

Travel Tips:

-only Cebu Pacific flies directly from Manila every other day and usually around 13k pesos
-they accept dollars so no need to change currency but make sure you bring lots of lose change
-its extremely hot any time of the year so bring enough clothes to change at least 3 times a day
-its best to rent a car and driver to bring you around, its too hot to take the tuk tuk
-I wouldn’t come here to eat but if you love temples, this is the place to be
-wear rubber shoes because it can get muddy when it rains

Ta Prohm
Siem Reap, Cambodia

The famous temple of Lara Croft. This was our second temple of the day and arriving here around 10am was a bit too hot although, its small enough for you to finish before lunch time. The one thing beautiful with this temple is that they really preserved the trees. So anywhere you go, there are trees even on top of the temples, there are trees. Love it.
