Backpacking Cambodia and Vietnam: Chillin’ in Siem Reap

The following day, we woke up excited for what’s going to happen.  We were scheduled to visit the Angkor National Museum in the morning and see the Apsara show in the evening.  In between was open for anything.

So, we had breakfast at the Golden Mango Inn by their beautiful garden.

Then, rode on a tuktuk to get to Angkor National Museum.

We rented an audio guide that provided us the story of everything that we saw inside the museum.  All of us love history and so we enjoyed every bit of our stay there.  Taking of pictures was not allowed inside so we just took pleasure in having these turista shots outside the museum.

We then asked our tuktuk driver to bring us to anywhere where we could have our lunch.  There were a number of restaurants all around but we chose to eat at a market stall.

We were going to visit another tourist spot afterwards but we just all decided to spend the rest of the afternoon at the Formal Garden of Grand Hotel D’Angkor.  Angel, Ivy, and Yula went around to take pictures.  Angge, Tin, and I stayed at the park to chat and eat!

Then, we went back to Golden Mango Inn to freshen up for the evening’s Apsara show.  We rode the tuktuk to Angkor Mondial Restaurant.

We had buffet while Apsara was on stage.

To be honest, the performance was so-so.  But, it was interesting to figure out who were the real ladies and the lady-guys.  They all looked beautiful!

Then, we went back to the hotel to rest and prepare for the next day’s activity.  Angkor Wat, here we come!

    1. :-( But, that’s okay… I’m sure you’ll have another chance to visit Siem Reap. I think Angkor Wat is worth seeing more than once in your life. So when you do visit Siem Reap again, just include the Apsara show in your to-see list! Plus, the buffet dinner wasn’t bad at all. :-)
