my trip to Siem Reap and Angkor
I will be flying off to Siem Reap on Tuesday morning.
I will be there until Sunday.
My flight departs at 6 am. so I probably have to be there by around 4.30-ish.
I will be staying at Kazna Hotel (http://www.kaznahotel.com/)
It cost me only $188 for 5 nights stay. The hotel comes highly recommended. they even provide free internet access and airport transfer. if you think that for what I paid, I would get a budget hotel standard room, well... take a look...
should be fine since it is only me.
I have also planned my itinerary whilst I am there. although this is not definitive and is subject to change.
