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.

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: 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! 🙂
