Xin Chao Mrs Than Mai .. Thanks for a very nice arranged program
and all the experience .. I send for you now some information on my trip
Phnom Penh Anise Hotel - The hotel quite small and old, but the
staff very friendly and good service. Location quite reasonable to walk around
and everything not so far. The price a bit expensive for this hotel, because
room quite small and old, maybe more about US$ 35 would be reasonable, but the
service and staff quite good. I see a few other hotels nearby the river, little
better location near to the shops and restaurants, around the same price of
US$45 so I might change if go again.
Siem Reap Sonalong Boutique - Very nice hotel, beautiful scenery and big room
with balcony. The price of this same Anise but more new and with big garden and
swimming pool. The hotel is quite new and clean and friendly and good service
staff. The manager of hotel always available to meet the guests and assit to
check in. Location a bit far to walk to main road but tuk tuk available at the
door. I might stay this hotel again if I visit Siem Reap but again I see other
hotels for same price close to shops and coffee shops.
Phnom Penh Miss Nara - Very friendly guide with good information and good
english. Always take good care of me and show me around to enjoy the programs
and give me a lot of information about everything we see. In the last day,
invite me with her friend to restaurant for coffee and ice cream and dont let me
Siem Reap Mr Souvan - Very friendly guide, little bit ok english but have a lot
of knowledge and take good care of me also.
In both place, drivers also very friendly and all the programs in both place,
have a very good time together, so that we are more like friends not tourist and
Everything well arranged with good timings and lot of time to walk around and
relax. Lot of cold water and cold towel available all the day, and restaurants
for lunch very nice and local to try Cambodian foods and meet local people. I
learn also a few words in Cambodian that I try to talk and make a lot of new
friends. Nearby hotel in Phnom Penh, I make friend with motorbike taxi who take
me around after the program just to drive and see the local sights for only US$
2 or US$ 3. In Siem Reap one time the car breakdown after the 1hr foot massage
program but I enjoy to sit and talk with the local people, and waiting till the
car ready to go.
Overall I have no complaint at all for anything and enjoy everything a lot. I am
sure I need to go back to Cambodia to visit some other places so we will discuss
about that after a while. I plan to visit during late November.
Only we had a little confusion about the schedule because I think book 5 nights
in Phnom Penh and 5 nights in Sieam Reap, so when I book hotel in Sieam Reap is
from 4th May but from your side 3rd May. But is ok because the hotel have no
problem to arrange me arrive 1 day early, after I tell to the guide if not
available I can sleep one night in the temple with monk. ☺
Thank you very much for all the booking Mrs Than Mai, really I enjoy it all a
lot with no problem at all.
