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.

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.

Thailand Chow

Your trip to Thailand would not be complete without trying their famous Pad Thai. And you can find authentic Pad Thai in the Food Street along Lumphini Park.

For a decent dine-in experience, you can eat at The Hub in Khao San Road.

2

For beer tasting (which was part of our itinerary), try the Singha and Chang beer.

Patpong

From Khao San Road, we rode a taxi to Patpong area. And from Patpong, we just walked back to our hotel.

Patpong is a night market, but is more famous for its bar, lady boy and the “ping-pong show”
