Anna’s Spa: Where to Go for Brazilian Wax and Khmer Massage in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

In case you didn’t know, I regularly go to waxing parlor every month for two main things: eyebrow threading and Brazilian waxing. Ever since I moved back to my hometown, I’ve become a member of Waxhaus to get some extra benefits from being a regular customer in the parlor.

However, on my last trip to Indochina, I spent almost 2 months on the road that I had to find an alternative place to do this form of self-care.

After I did my last waxing session in Bandung before I flew to Kuala Lumpur, I figured I needed to get some Brazilian wax again when I reached Phnom Penh.

The reason for that was crystal clear, I didn’t like to be bushy down there, and I matched with someone on Bumble that I felt like I might have a holiday hookup at the time. LMAO.

Review: Giant Ibis, the Best Bus Operator in Cambodia

Ever since I started planning my last Indochina trip, I knew that I wanted to travel overland from my first stop in Ho Chi Minh City to when I flew back home from Kuala Lumpur

At first, I didn’t think much about the transportation that I’d opt for my journey. However, since I took the minibus from Ha Tien to Kampot, I figure that maybe the best choice that I could make in terms of transportation would be by bus. It would be more convenient for me since I brought big luggage, and the bus will have a space for it without me feeling guilty that my bag took too much space on the trunk of the car. 

So when I left Kampot to Phnom Penh, I decided to just book a bus ticket by Giant Ibis through Bookaway

I initially planned to book a sleeper bus from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. However, when I was about to book it, the sleeper bus was sold out, so I ended up using the same bus operator again for the road trip in Cambodia. 

So, I’m going to share my insights on using their service as the transportation mode in Cambodia. What’s my review on Giant Ibis, possibly one of the best bus operators in the country? Check this out!

The Best Tour Options and Things to Do in Kampot: Bokor Mountain or Pepper Plantation?

Hi everyone! 

I’ve been feeling demotivated lately, and I’ve been packed with works to the point that it takes a while for me to continue another post covering my last Indochina trip. So, apologies as it took a while since I published the review for Two Moons Hotel Kampot

So today, I’ll be sharing with you on things to do around Kampot. But before you continue, just a friendly reminder that I traveled slow, and I wouldn’t consider myself as someone with the FOMO. So yeah, there are a lot of things in Kampot that I missed out, but I’m not even sorry. 

I enjoyed Kampot so much that I kind of regret my decision to only stay there for 3 nights. Well, what did I do in Kampot and which tour option that I took around the town? Let’s check this out!

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!

So, after my last few post on the mini bus from Ha Tien to Kampot, this time I’m gonna share with you my firsthand experience of staying at Two Moons Hotel in Kampot. The hotel was the accommodation I chose to stay for 3 nights in town.

Well, how was my stay in Two Moons Hotel? Let’s check this out!

Vietnam-Cambodia by Land: Ha Tien to Kampot with Champa Mekong Express Bus

Hi everyone!

I know I’ve been missing in action for the past week because I got sick. I was planning to write about the review of my journey to get across Vietnam-Cambodia border by land last week, but then I just didn’t have the energy to do it so here I am!

It’s Idul Fitri holiday here in Indonesia, so anyway Happy Eid Mubarak for those who celebrate it… Anyway, I’m not so big at the celebration itself, so in this post I’m gonna share with you my experience to cross Vietnam-Cambodia border with Champa Mekong Express Bus.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I couldn’t find any transportation option from Chau Doc to Kampot online. Going to Ha Tien first was my only way in order to get the bus ticket to Kampot, since most of the transportation options from Chau Doc to Cambodia go directly to Phnom Penh.

After staying overnight in Ha Tien, I took Champa Mekong Express Bus from Ha Tien to Kampot and I’ll share with you the review of my journey with them here! 🙂
