Siem Reap and Angkor Wat Cambodia

I had the fortune to take a short trip from Malaysia to Cambodia. I flew to Siem Reap, famous for Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples at Angkor Thom, Banteay Srei, Kulen mountain, and the largest lake in south east Asia - Tonle Sap.

Siem Reap has a strong tourist orientation, the airport allows visa on arrival at a reasonable cost and in very short time, and everything for tourists is usually priced in US dollars. In fact I did not see anything in the local Real currency, which given the exchange rate is enormous only makes sense.

I stayed at the Angkor Tradition hotel, which provided excellent air-conditioned rooms in a pleasant garden surrounding, it was out of town some distance so not so convenient if you want to make a bar crawl, very quiet as not many guests there but very well priced and close to the golf course. Since you have to use vehicular transport to Angkor Wat in any case, I thought it a good deal. I used a tuk-tuk, a 3 wheeled motor cycle driven transport for my visit to Angkor before dawn and for the day around Angkor Thom.

Siem Reap also has two world class golf courses, I played at the Angkor Wat country club and took a lesson with the Scottish born St Andrews bred golf pro Alan. The golf course was designed by Sir Nick Faldo and is definitely a resort course (a small number of real hazards) and very enjoyable. The price is up there on the international scale so don't expect a bargain, but with golf cart, which is necessary due to the tropical heat and humidity and a caddy, who should help read the greens - mine did!.
