With a 4 day weekend, why not?! The flight was only 2.5hours and accommodation is lovely and so cheap! We left Friday afternoon and were at the hotel by 7pm and what a treat it is: Ladear Angkor Boutique. The staff were friendly and welcoming upon arrival with a welcome drink and cold flannel! They also provide one way transport to the airport on your trip included in the price... and this is our chariot we arrived in...
So funny when then man arrived in this and we got our tuk tuk all the way to the hotel. A great way to start the trip :-)
Buffet breakfast is also included in the room rate which is excellent! Our room is one with the garden view pool access, it is so lovely waking up to the greenery outside and pool view and so convenient for relaxing and reading by the pool too. The room is very spacious and has all that you need and is clean with a nice decor in keeping with the Siem Reap temple vibe!
Our first full day here we made use of our free 30minute foot massage (definitely have one!) and relaxed by the pool enjoying life :-) More adventures and exploring to come over the next 3 days, including the acrobatic circus and Angkor Wat temples but mainly a chance to recuperate and prepare for the last 9 weeks of our first academic year here at BSG.
