Review: Angkor Pearl Hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia

Hi everyone!

After talking about what I did in Siem Reap for a day, it’s time to share my experience staying at Angkor Pearl Hotel the other day!

One thing that I noticed about Siem Reap was that the average hotel rate is relatively higher than in Phnom Penh. If you haven’t recognized my traveling style already, I like my accommodation to be affordable yet comfortable.

I’m in my 30s, so hostels are definitely out of my options. I won’t say I’m so demanding when it comes to the accommodation, but I usually have one thing that is usually on my filter when it comes to searching for my ideal one: the elevator.

The Mou Hotel, Phnom Penh: Is It A Recommended Place to Stay in the Capital City of Cambodia?

As you all probably know, my last trip to Indochina was my first time in Phnom Penh. I had no clue about Cambodia’s capital city, but at the time, I already knew what I wanted to do when I was there.

This trip alone was the umpteenth attempt for me to live a semi-digital nomad life. So apart from the tour related to the Cambodian genocide, I decided to stay a little longer than any other place as I spared a day to do nothing much at the hotel.

Before heading to Phnom Penh, I already got an appointment with my local Indonesian client to have a virtual meeting. So I figure, I just had to empty my traveling itinerary for a day and focus on the meeting in the capital city of Cambodia.

I barely researched the recommended accommodation to stay in Phnom Penh, and instead just booked one that looked convenient, reliable, and not too pricey. That’s when I ended up booking The Mou Hotel in Phnom Penh for my 4-night stay there.

Review: Two Moons Hotel Kampot in Cambodia

Hi everyone!

I had been quite swarmed up with work in the past few days that I didn’t even have time to start writing about more things for my last Indochina trip. Now that it’s Saturday night and work has been quite slow, I’m so glad that I could finally get back to my writing mood!

Review: River Hotel Ha Tien, Staying Overnight on the Way to Kampot from Vietnam

After weighing in whether or not I should stay overnight in Ha Tien on my way to Kampot from Chau Doc, with the limited number of minibus going to Cambodia from Vietnam on a daily basis I decided to just stay in Ha Tien for one night.

I created a brief itinerary about some places to visit in Ha Tien, but I ended up not going anywhere except for dinner because the weather was too hot and I found out that Grabbike wasn’t available in the city. So yes, if you want to get around the town in Ha Tien, the best option is to take a taxi.

But since I was traveling solo and on the budget at the time, I decided to just stay in the hotel where I stayed overnight there: River Hotel, Ha Tien.
