Siem Reap here I come in August !!!!!

I will be going to Siem Reap in August with ... amazonman ... one of the bloggers who had become a dear friend. Anyone had been to Siem Reap before ? Any suggestions for budget affordable hotels to stay in Siem Reap ? Any suggestions will be great.

I am really looking forward to taking pictures. And also to recharge myself before I look myself till Nov for my exams. ( that is if my appeal gets through end of this month ... so please keep this matter in prayer ).

So do give me any suggestions ... where to eat ? What to look for ? Where to take pictures ? Where to stay ? What are cheap ? The food ? Thanks alot :D

poohbearee said...

Angkor Wat! Sounds exciting. Take more pics!!! No tips to offer cos never been there. Backpack trip?

Stay in one of the hostels in Pub Street. That's where all the action is. And do check out Blue Pumpkin when you are there. It's Lonely Planet's pick, as is mine. The best cafe for desserts and snacks. You'll have a field day taking photographs. Just bring enough CF cards!

wow...another holiday..i thought you just had one?

i agree with fibrate..have enough CF cards and try taking RAW pics..then you wouldnt need to worry about over exposure and can do some photoshop adjustment later. Better still.. get one of those portable hard drive or perhaps an ipod to keep all your pics..

have a great time..

Have a great time. I have never been to any of these places, so I can only envy from afar with no advice to offer.
