42: Cambodia Travel (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Angkor Wat)

December 06, 2018

Our adventure to Cambodia included celebrating the Water Festival (Bon Om Touk) while in Phnom Penh, discovering the beauty of Siem Reap, and taking in the mystery of Angkor Wat. The massive celebration in the country’s capital city brought in over a million visitors and we had the chance to take in the festivities alongside them. Eating insects, watching the boat races, and hearing the fireworks were all part of the 3-day massive party. Our time in Siem Reap helped us understand why it is a backpackers heaven with many pubs, cheap dining options, and the bucket list mystery of Angkor Wat. The magnificent Temple from the 12th century will leave you asking questions of what was built. Our journey to Cambodia was amazing. Listen as we share what we learned along the way.

It had all of the comforts that you could wish for.  We really enjoyed working out at the Angkor Interfitness. It had awesome equipment, a yoga room, and a sauna.  Angkor Wat has been high on my bucket list for a while based on all of the history.  It is crazy how it lines up with other mystical sites around the world mathematically described in this short video.  Be sure to have your complete legal names on all of your travel documents so you can leave the airport properly.
