Where We Went: Siem Reap + Koy Samui
Craziest Thing We Did: Get picked up from the airport in a tuk tuk. It actually didn’t seem that crazy to us, but I guess that’s what 8 weeks in Asia will do to you.
Best Thing We Did: Exploring the temples of Angkor Wat and beyond.
Tastiest Thing We Did: Coconut and Taro ice cream in the heat of the day at the temples.
Dumbest Thing We Did: Get an airport taxi on Koi Samui. Took an hour and got us to our hotel after dark. Should have walked another 100 feet and found the public taxi stand. #Learning
Coolest thing we Learned: Sombai is their local, flavored rice wine and the word sombai translates to “more rice, please!” We went on a “tour” which was a cocktail making class and made delicious cocktails using sombai as the liquor.
Biggest Surprise: They use the US Dollar in Cambodia.
Mystery Solved: As we’ve been reading about this area, there are many articles saying there is a huge underground city that spans out from Angkor Wat. Mystery unsolved in this case!
