Old & Night Market

After arranging our stuff at Bou Savy Guesthouse, we requested Bovorn to get us a tuktuk for our city tour. We first went to Mekong Bus office to purchase our tickets to Ho Chi Minh from Phnom Penh. Then we went to Capitol Bus office and purchased our tickets to Phnom Penh from Siem Reap, and for our accommodation at Capitol Guesthouse as well. We proceeded next to the Old Market.

Psah Chas is the local term for the Old Market, it is where you will find souvenirs and may have a taste of authentic Cambodian cuisines.

2

Khmer people are very artistic in nature and you can see their masterpieces at the Art Center Night Market which is adjacent to the Old Market.

Bou Savy Guesthouse

Bou Savy Guesthouse is a very cozy abode which is located inside a compound. Bovorn, my contact person is very accommodating not only in emails but also in person. We also booked to them our tour guide to Angkor Wat and the van.

Many fellow (and mostly) Filipino bloggers have attested the credibility of this guesthouse. Let me add myself to the number of satisfied customer. The Certificate of Excellence bestowed by Tripadvisor from 2011 up to present serves as a proof of their Cambodian Hospitality.

Room cost 18USB for 2 pax/night inclusive of free breakfast

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Siem Reap is the gateway to the famous Angkor Wat. From the Thailand-Cambodia border, Siem Reap province is another 4 hours travel by land.

When roaming around Siem Reap, you can ride their tuk-tuk, a local version of our tricycle.

Cambodia

You can reach the border of Cambodia from Thailand by land. You can either choose from a 4-5 hour bus ride or 6-7 hours train ride. We chose the former.

1

We woke up early the next morning to catch the casino bus going to Cambodia. We initially plan to take a cab but there’s nowhere to be found so we end up walking more than 2kms of what we have expected because the bus was relocated away from Lumphini Park.

Aranpayet and Poipet is the border of Thailand and Cambodia, the casino bus will drop you off to Rongkula Market and from there you just have to walk through the immigration of Thailand and Cambodia.

2

There have been numerous advice from fellow bloggers about scammers at the border of Thailand-Cambodia. First are the locals who will approach you and will tell you that you need to pay for visa. Second are the taxi drivers that will offer you pricey ride to Siem Reap. Fortunately, we did not meet both.
