Our trip to Cambodia

Happy Summer! School is out, Summer is in! My family and I started our vacation in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

At the airport, the lines were long. Also, surprisingly, they mostly took USD when you paid for things. Even the banks gave USD! Our hotel had a nice pool, and our room was big, with two bathrooms, and 3 beds. A separate room with two desks, a shelf, the fridge/freezer, and a dining table were included too! We all enjoyed our first night in the hotel.

The second day, we went to visit the temples. We went to see Angkor Tom, Bayon, and lots more.

We even saw a temple that was broken apart and held together by tree roots! By the time we were finished with the first two, we were all templed out. The last temple we saw was the great ANGKOR WAT! We learned it was dedicated to VISHNU, a god of Hinduism. When we all got home, we were amazed, but all tired.

On the third day, we went zip-lining, it was really fun! We went to various heights, and some very high points! There were two courses, one with 8 trees, and one with 15 trees. We did the 15 tree course, and it was definitely worth the spend! We all loved it!

The fourth day was a hangout day, except for the evening. We went to a Cambodian Circus called Phare. I loved it! We got to sit in the front rows, in section A! It was a total amazement!

On the last day, we went to the wet market, early in the morning, to eat breakfast. A tour guide showed us around the wet market. My brother and I found it gross. He also showed us how to make rice noodles, mango paper, and much more! Then it was back to Singapore!

We definitely spent our time well, doing stuff we recommend! We hope your start to Summer was as spectacular as ours was!
