Me and my 15-year old daughter started in Bangkok and spent two intense days exploring China Town, river cruising, visiting temples and Khao San Road. We took the train to the challenging border crossing in Aranyaprathet and entered Cambodia. Breathtaking Angkor Wat was by itself worth the whole journey. And when we add the amazing, beautiful islands with puffy white sand and crystal-clear water, the trip became one of our best.
Our active days contained zip-lining in the jungle, biking in Angkor Wat, and snorkeling off the beautiful island Koh Ta Kiev. But we also had calm days on the fantastic island Koh Rong Samloem. All thanks to new found friends and helpful locals.
We had several intensive evenings in hectic cities. In Siem Reap, we did not dare to test the big hairy spiders, Skuon, grilled and salted, or the scorpions. In Phnom Penh we celebrated New Year by the lit temple by the river with thousands of locals but also ended up in neighborhoods, we had to hurry away from.
We spent the last days of our trip in Thailand where we visited friends, learned to go three on a motorbike, and tried many delicious, new for us, local dishes through our knowledgeable and food interested friends.
The best experiences are found outside your comfort zone when you venture out into the spaces.
