So it has almost been a month since I left sunny South Florida and headed to Asia. So far, everything has been great and I’m still enjoying my time in The Philippines. To date, I have been to Manila, Baler to go surfing, Hong Kong to visit my friend Matt and check out the city, to Cebu City, the island of Bohol to enjoy the beach, back to my Cebu hotel to work :(, and now I’m headed to the hard to reach island of Siargao to try my hand at surfing again.
I have a flight to Cambodia on Oct. 4th to the city of Siem Reap to check out somewhere I have always wanted to visit, Angor Wat. It was the seat of the Khmer Empire, one of the most powerful in South East Asian history. Supposedly, just a day or two isn’t enough to really explore the site as it was a former city and not just a couple temples. I’ll probably opt for an escorted tour on this one to not miss any of the details.
found out after doing a little research that I’ll have to fly from Siem Reap to Thailand if I want a 30 day visa instead of the poop 15 day one they give you if you cross the borderoverland, but just my luck, the airline who holds the route has a monopoly and it’s over $200! Oh well, win some you lose some.
After I fly to Thailand, I haven’t decided which direction I’ll head, north or south of Bangkok so any suggestions or must-see places are much appreciated!
