When I first crossed the border from Thailand to Cambodia, I had no idea I’d be in Siem Reap for so long. I’d laid out a big itinerary that would take me to the far corners of the country, and assumed that SR would be just the first stop of many. But alas, my backlog of work took much longer than expected, and time was now running short. With huge summer plans on the horizon, if I was going to hit even the essentials of Cambodia I had to get moving…

  1. I wanted to take this boat ride. Instead my friends all agreed upon taking the boat to Phnom Penh even though I said I saw terrible reviews about it. It was pretty horrific.

  2. SOunds like a fun ride…..be careful of the sun though….skin cancer is no joke…..wear sunblock!

    • Yeah, I know – and I did. It was bunk Chinese sunscreen though that was apparently made of mayonnaise and water or something. Go figure.

  3. Great pics!

    These bring a new meanings to house-boat and mobile home for me. Really amazing. I guess the whole area is under water for a portion of the year right? But why floating instead of stilts?

    • Because if they don’t float, how could they always be at boat-level? 😛

      Also, I can’t imagine it would be easier for them to swim under the river to build stilts to the bottom.

  4. seems like a pretty incredible ride – seriously like something out of National Geographic. thanks for sharing!

  5. Half the photos have waving kids in them 🙂
