Cambodia (part 6)

Today, let’s visit Siem Reap.   Siem Reap today—being a popular tourist destination—has a large number of hotels, resorts, restaurants and businesses closely related to tourism.  This is much owed to its proximity to the Angkor temples, the most popular tourist attraction  in Cambodia.

It has colonial and Chinese-style architecture in the Old French Quarter, and around the Old Market.

We did not try to feed the fish.  Have you ?

Must be laundry day !!

Here we can buy  gasoline in bottle.

I was told the monks are not allowed to drive a car or a scooter. Did you know that ?

A useful bike to carry anything you want. Siem Reap is an interesting city.

I will have one more post on Cambodia. Thanks for reading.

  1. What a fascinating city! So many different things to see. And this is a grand collection of interesting photos of this place. I liked seeing the markets and the orange laundry, and the monks being driven around. The plastic bottles of gasoline were a little scary, actually! And the little temples in the city are lovely.
    Wow, what a trip this was!

    • It was a great trip and because it was so different than any other trips we have done, I really wanted to share it with ..whoever wants to read it. Your are so kind in taking time to write your comment. Thank you my dear Mary.

  2. Hi France. Nice pictures. Siem Reap doesn’t look as a rich town, but the old market is refreshing. So, you didn’t try to feed the hungry fish with your skin ? I saw that kind of tank with cousins of your fish doing the same job ( eating dead skin on the legs of people sitting on the side of the tank ) in Denmark and Sweden a few years ago 😉 But I didn’t try it 😉

    • Cambodia is certainly not a rich country but people are very kind. I will always remember that trip. Thanks for taking the time to read and write a comment. Hope all is well in your part of the world. As for myself – as you know- I am a permanent traveler. I get a bit tired of people who say to me : “You are on a trip again.” Now I will say: I travel all the time except when I am at home and I go home to rest . LOL ciao Philippe.

  3. Tellement de choses me surprennent dans ton récit; que ce soit au niveau de l’architecture, de la nourriture, les vêtements, les sculptures, etc. Je suis surprise, non pas parce que je ne connaissais pas leur mode de vie, mais parce que c’est tellement différent de nos façons de vivre à nous.
    Mais c’est tellement enrichissant de côtoyer, de rencontrer des gens différents de nous. Tu as eu cette opportunité et tu as su en profiter.
    Bonne soirée France!

    • c’est un des plaisirs de voyager dans des pays qui ne ressemblent pas au Canada.. et rencontrer des gens avec qui ont peu echanger. Tout ca nous donne de bons souvenirs. Merci bcp pour ta visite Mado. bisous
