Personal highlights

  1. Siem Reap: the overly touristy city next to the historical temple of Angkor Wat
  2. Pub Street: where the tourists have a western bite and beer after visiting the temples
  3. Snake Stick: it tasted like chicken but was much more crunchy, not very healthy for your teeth
  4. Central Market: mostly filled with souvenirs, but there are some hidden gems like local deserts
  5. Road trip: once more, I've rented a motorcycle and drove solo to Tonle Sap
