Jan 28, 2017 - Last day in Siem Reap -wonky haircut

Finally got the courage up to get my haircut. Lady couldn't speak English so opted out of highlights and just asked for the ends to be cut. She then proceeded to shear me with a gadget up the back and on one side before Tim stopped her and we walked off without paying! I now have short back and side! Spent day planning, got an elephant T-shirt for $3 £2.42 - lovely. Pub Street for a couple the Sok San Street Boutique. Met up with Billy, stayed way too late.

Jan 27, 2017 - We LOVE Siem Reap

Spent the morning shopping. It's really expensive here for face cream and the like, even if you shop around. Had to pay $11.90 for a pot of Olay Active Hydrating Cream £9.48! Ouch! In fact I wouldn't have bought it had I realised it was that much! I couldn't even find a cambodian cheapo brand! Pots, sun cream, shampoo etc are very expensive here. T Shirts are $2-3 & beer is cheap 50c in Happy Hours. 40p. Afternoon planning... very tiresome but necessary. Pub Street then Sok San Street Boutique...had a laugh with Ozzies Ang. Matt & Kirt,...

Jan 25, 2017 - Floating Village and Jungle Temple

Up too early to get a breakfast then driver didn't show until 7.20 am. Did Kompong Kleang first; had to pay $15 £12 each for the boat trip (man initially asked for $20 each but we walked off). Amazing to see how they live in house on stilts ready for flooding in May, June & July. Washing their clothes in the river! Then did Beng Mealea, the 'Jungle Temple', very good. Tim had an ant attack! Driver very dangerous - made/received around 70 -80 phone calls while driving.

Jan 24, 2017 - Siem Reap Shopping & War Museum

Feeling VERY Scruffy but too scared to get highlights & a trim for $12 £9.54 so bought a Toshiba Travel hairdryer instead for $8 £6.36 - Tim not very happy about it as been moaning about 'all' my stuff since we left England! Got a tuk-tuk off the street to Post Office ($3 to post 4 UK postcards £2.39). Then on to the war Museum which was greally. Got to handle all the guns. Surprised how heavy they are. Embarrassed at how little I knew about Cambodia and the wars. Booked up a trip to Beng Mealea, Jungle Temple and the floating village of...

Jan 22, 2017 - Temples out in Siem Riap

Picked up at 9am by young tuk-tuk driver. Drove from temple to temple starting with the Tomb Raider one and finishing with Angkor Wat. Absolutely exhausting! Not the best Pics I've ever taken so may do another temple trip before we leave here. (Lots more to see too). Can't get any more nights here so booked Siem Reap Holiday Garden £13 a night for 2 nights. Bought some T Shirts from here Siem Reap Hostel $5 each £4.04 Mine & Tim's read: AKON-MUKAPLOO which means thanks a shit load. James' red one reads Siam Reap Hostel as is one of the...

Jan 21, 2017 - Round the market - booked temple tours - Siem Riap

Walked round 'Cambodia-Made-Market' and the Old Market where Tim bought me some Rock- Chick earrings $6 £4.85. Lots of butterflies everywhere. Looking for other gifts but shopped-out! Booked a half-day 'small - circuit' trip round some of the many temples tomorrow. Decided against the 4.30 sunset tour due to crowds and no guide in case of painful broken English. Got Tim some Anti-Biotics for his cough (he'd also got the runs by the evening) and me some anti-allergy tablets as well as some face masks for tomorrows trip, Had a thai curry out...

Up at 7 Flew to KL - Air Asia Pocket Pie en-route (again). 1 hour flight Then to Siem Reap - 2 hour flight - now 7 hours ahead rather than 8 - offered another pocket pie but gave them back, pre-ordered a curry each. Filled out 2 forms on plane then it took around an hour to get a 'visitors Visa' $30 US each and a photo required. A tuk-tuk picked us up FOC and took us to The Siem Reap Hostel half hour away...great ride although must get a nose mask for the dust & smog. Can't believe we are here being as we didn't know where to go last...

Felt better today apart from that bloody mozzy! I have 4 bites on my face now and 2 on my arm so bought some room spray.
