My Last Day In Cambodia

This is my last post on my 6-day trip to Cambodia. Finally! You must be heaving a sigh of relief! But I hoped you have enjoyed reading about my Cambodia trip as much as I have enjoyed writing about it.

Jam, his friend and I had spent 3 days in Siem Reap looking at temples and ancient ruins, and another 3 days in Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. Well, actually to be more exact, it's only 2 days in Phnom Penh, as we took almost a whole day traveling from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh in what must be the slowest bus ride we had ever experienced!

There was one thing that we did almost everyday in Cambodia and that was going for massage! Seriously, if you like massage, then Cambodia is a heaven for you. The reason being that it only costs between USD5 - USD7 for an hour's massage! And if you have been to massage places in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia or even Philippines, you will know that this rate is dirt cheap!

And so on the 6th and final morning in Cambodia, we went for one last massage. We found this outlet called Royal Massage near our hotel - and it turned out to be the best and most professional service we had encountered during our entire trip! Yes, it was only USD6 per hour and I was most satisfied with the massage! Definitely a far cry from the so called 'massage' in our hotel room the night before.

After the massage, we went back to our hotel to check out. Our good friend and host (I really am so grateful to him!) who had paid for virtually everything during our 3-days/2-nights stay in Phnom Penh then brought us out to a Chinese restaurant for lunch.

These were what we ate...

Roast duck rice with plum sauce

Wanton noodles

Chicken feet

Rice with prawns and vegetables

During our 3 days in Phnom Penh, we drank beer at almost every meal. That's because our host would always bring along his friend who loves Heineken beer! I am not a beer drinking person, but out of courtesy, we had to drink along with him at every meal.

After lunch, our good host drove us to the airport. And while waiting for our plane to arrive, he even bought us ice creams! Can you believe it? I wish I have more of such friends LOL!

Now this is a funny ice cream. It's called the Original Blizzard ice cream and it is served upside down. If it drops, you get to eat it free!

Well, we were not given an 'upside down' ice cream, so Jam tried it on his own. He turned the cup upside down and waited. After a few seconds, the ice cream dropped off! Oops! There went his ice cream! I did not do that so I finished all my ice cream haha!

Soon it was time to enter the Departure Hall and we bid our good host and his friend good bye. I enjoyed my Cambodia trip very much and blogging about it helped me to relive those good moments of my life.

Now if you have missed any of my Cambodia travel posts, feel free to check them out below, all sorted out in chronological order.

So was it home sweet home after I returned from Cambodia? Not so fast!! This was a 10-day holiday plan for Jam, his friend and me, and we had only spent 6 days in Cambodia. Where did we go for the next four days?

Well, after accumulating all those dusts from the temple ruins in Cambodia, it's time to wash them off in the waters of Redang Island. Haha! Yes, that's where we headed off for the next few days!
