WPC: Favourite Place

I wouldn’t mind going back to Cambodia (Siem Reap) again. It is one of my favourite places to (re) visit.

Drink, Drink and Drink

I was going through my photographs that were taken in my phone and found this funny set.

In Siem Reap, we decided to check out the famous Pub Street, after visiting all the temples and walking around a lot.
This was when we entered the place at around 5 or 6 pm I guess.

A little later when things were getting a little lit up (from inside and outside)

A little after the happy hours at a Mexican place and then it was time to go else where and check out other places which offered happy hours too. Would be very unfair to the rest isn’t.

And when after all those hours have gone by and too many shots have been consumed and when it was really really time to go back! (Its the same place as the first photograph but taken from a pub above)

SL-WEEK 13: Ecology

ecology

Posted for Sylvain’s theme of this week, Ecology.

I don’t know if it counts if we post pictures of places where eco-tourism is promoted. This is one such place in Siem Reap. It is called Kompong Phluk, where the mangroove forests are submerged in the water from the Tonle Sap lake (which is quite huge). This also has the famous floating village and it takes a boat ride of almost 20 mins to reach them. You can go inside these forests in the small boats (which we didn’t do because we were getting late for our sunset over Tonle Sap). I had one doubt though. If they were really trying to promote eco tourism they shouldn’t be using motor boats to get to these places, should they ? Of course they don’t use it for a tour of these mangroove forests, its only until here and to the lake they use it, but still …

Wanna drink this ?

I really need to share this photograph I took in Cambodia. We were shopping for some local wine to try in Siem Reap, while on our way from National Museum. In that store while my friends were doing the shopping I was doing some clicking and look what I found 🙂 This one really grossed me out for a few minutes and I was wondering if it was a plastic one or a real one. Look at the way its sitting like a yogi inside the bottle. There were others too, like scorpion and stuff. But I couldn’t bring myself to click them 😳
What do you think? Would you try this drink ? I know I wouldn’t ! I am not that adventurous.
