Happy International Beer Day!

Wait, do you even know that today is actually International Beer Day? If you don’t, then just know that there’s such a thing like International Beer Day and it’s celebrated around the world… This Friday!

As a beer enthusiast myself, beer is one of the alcoholic drinks that I can’t simply say no whenever I get offered. More especially when I travel overseas.

It’s the only drink with alcohol that makes me feel like I’m a responsible drinker. Anything stronger than beer, and I start rambling about my life problem. God knows why I am like this. LOL.

So today, I’m excited to present to you a piece of collaboration about beer. Together with more than 50 fellow bloggers slash travelers, we would like to share the local beer around the world with you that you can add on your bucket list.

Oudong, the Old Capital of Cambodia: Is It Worth the Day Trip from Phnom Penh?

In case you don’t know yet, my way of travel will probably be classified as ‘scattered’ for some people. Unlike most travelers who would outline their itinerary when they visited a place, I wasn’t like that. That’s also what happened when I was in Cambodia.

After I decided to turn down Sihanoukville from the list of cities to visit as a part of my Indochina tour, I eventually stayed at The Mou Hotel in Phnom Penh for 4 days. You may think I had visited a lot of places in Cambodia’s capital, but truth be told, I had not.

After visiting the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum on the first day, I ended up having some Khmer massage at Anna’s Spa. On the second day, I was swarmed up with the virtual meeting, so I only went to the riverside later at night for a date with my Indochina fling. LOL.

On my last full day, since I realized that I didn’t know when I got a chance to come back to Phnom Penh again, I decided to force myself to go out. And this time, I went to Oudong, the old capital of Cambodia.
