Let Me Run Away From This Dry Market

Siem Reap in North western Cambodia has many things to offer .This city is becoming a very great Tourist attraction for its impressive Angkor wat ruins,night life and food.The tourists flock this place year after year for its cheap markets and tasty street food.One can get around this busy city in many ways.One of them is to walk around its markets.

One of the appealing features of these markets are they are in flat ground.You do not have to climb up the steps in this hot sun panting and puffing all the way till you find a place to sit.There are plenty of markets around the central area for you to shop around.

Apart from markets where most tourists throng around to have spicy food,fresh fruits and vegetables direct from the farm is the UNESCO world heritage site of Angkor wat ruins,Tonle Sap Lake,and the surrounding villages.All these talk about Khmer architecture but the markets entice you with aroma.

The market is the real place to meet the locals from nearby village selling their goods and catches on a daily basis.You come to know about their culture and history.Also lies the delicious street food meal after your exhaustive trip around the markets.

The markets is the place where it is not hard for you to spend your cash as they do not accept credit or debit cards and actually nice to splurge.There is no better place than the markets to relax and have a nice time before entering the long arduous task of entering the Angkor wat ruins.

The pub area around this old market is a good place to hunt for  a different lunch be it a French,German,Mexican,Italian rather than an asian style cooking recipes which you encounter all the time.

This Dry market is one in the central area where you will get all the delicacies of Cambodia in neatly packed and at affordable prices.Cambodian they like these dry stuffs more than any one else and there is a clamour for purchase.

How To Reach EDU Hostel In Yogyakarta

I came out of Adisucipto Airport exit looking for the local bus stop to find the Trans Jogja Bus Line to Neabean bus station in downtown Yogyakarta in Indonesia.Normally I will be able to see many travellers carrying their backpacks walking towards the Bus station.But here i could not see any of the young Backpacking crowd.May be all the youngsters head towards Bali where fun and frolic entertains them.

On A Passionate Plan-Cycling Around Angkor wat In Siem Reap

I always use the first opportunity to get into cycling.In that way you can see the life around the city with ease and take memorable shots with your camera.Many travellers prefer to have a guided tour,rent a car,share a tuk tuk or take a scooter to see the places in and around Angkor wat.

These bicycles can be rented at much cheaper rate of US$ 1 per day and if your hotel manager recommends no need to pay the deposit or leave your passport.It is much simpler no carbon emissions.Good health to keep you fit and agile.

Of late I hear many tourists abandon their bicycles once they become tried in and around Angkor wat complex which forces local to charge higher rentals and heavy deposit.But I am conscious of my responsibilities and duty and people trust me.

Yes I can do walking instead of battling around for my space with cars,buses and motor cycles on the road but will not be able to cover more places on foot.So I prefer cycling on my own and all these crowd is till you are in the down town ,once you are out it is a beautiful ride all the way into the numerous depleted temples and unexplored ones.

I had to cycle nearly 8 km to reach the Angkor wat monument area to get my 3 day pass and go around.The waterbodies were very much dry in this season and I kind of had the place to myself.The APSARA Police checks you at regular intervals in main intersections and ensures that you have the relevant valid pass with you.

The temples are covered with huge trees which gives quite a good shade around as you bicycle on the road.
