What You Could Get in Bath for $10 – Various Things to Do on the Budget in England’s UNESCO World Heritage City

It’s not without a reason that we barely cover any city around the UK in the $10 series. The United Kingdom is known for its high living cost, that the budget seems so little to spend around the region.

However, it doesn’t mean that $10 USD is impossible to spend anywhere in the UK, especially in England. We’ve covered the capital, which is London and other cities like Cambridge and York.

And today, after months of not covering any city in the region, we have Karen of World Wide Writer to cover another city there: Bath.

Cambodian Genocide Tour: The Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh

I have a thing with dark tourism. While it may come across creepy for some people, I think I could see it from a different perspective in a way that there were times when humanity failed that we should never go back to where it was.

It’s the same reason why I like reading books related to dark history like the Holocaust. The top of my bucket list includes visiting Auschwitz and Srebenica if one day I get a chance to land somewhere around Europe. I’d also like to go to where the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy took place in America.

Who am I kidding? I definitely wouldn’t miss Sarajevo if one day I go to Bosnia, so I could see the spot where Franz Ferdinand got shot. The list goes on, and my interest in dark tourism is also why I couldn’t miss the genocide tour when I was in Cambodia.

Apart from a cemetery, I think the dark history is also something that I could trace back in my travel to remind myself that I should never take things for granted with the life I have now. As hard as it feels like in some days, I’ve got it easy.

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.

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!
