I am seriously obsessed with Cambodia! The people are SO incredibly nice and the culture is so fun! We went and explored the Angkor Wat temples which was incredibly beautiful! There’s so much amazing history and beauty here! Our tuk tuk drivers were so nice and helpful!

We loved this place! They were seriously so helpful in arranging everything!
– Angkor Wat Temples: these are unreal beautiful!!! We decided to do it for sunrise, so we got a tuk tuk driver at 4:30am(our hotel arranged it for us!!) and we paid him like $20 for the whole day to take us around to the temples – it’s so cheap for transportation here!! I would suggest getting a driver for the whole day because it makes it way convenient. They’ll take you to the ticket office to get the temple tickets($37) and then to the temples – there are a bunch of them so you can pick and choose which ones you want to go to! Also make sure to wear something covering your shoulders or something you can put over your shoulders or else they won’t let you into the temples. Side note – the breakfast at Angkor Wat was unreal yummy!!!! So I would suggest getting it there before you head out to the other temples.
– KSEDO Orphanage : this was an experience I’ll never forget! We went and spent the afternoon at the KSEDO Orphanage and it was so much fun! They had dances and songs prepared to show us and then we played soccer with them the whole afternoon! A lot of them speak pretty good English so it was fun to be able to talk to them and get to hang out for the afternoon. They have such a light in their eyes and are so cute, loving, and stoked to have us there!
– Markets: there’s the old market that goes on during the day and then the night market that is obviously at night haha both are way fun and have similar things to buy. The night market is especially fun to just walk around in, get yummy food, and hang out.
We drove from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh on a minivan bus for $11/pp and it’s about 6 hours. I’m glad we drove because we got to see the countryside and it’s so beautiful!!!

– Khmer Rouge Killing Fields: This was really eye opening and amazing to learn about!! I honestly didn’t know a ton about this genocide and it was SO CRAZY to listen and learn about everything that happened!!! So nuts!
