Kuala Lumpur and Siem Reap in April

While enjoying  the last week of my 20’s I decided to post something here. It’s about my visit to Kuala Lumpur and Siem Reap back in April. I don’t travel much. But I always try to visit at least one place I’ve never been every year.

This year i went for seven days. I spent 2 nights in Kuala Lumpur then flew to Siem Reap. We had a very fun time and left us a good impression of Kuala Lumpur. They have a comfortable, easily available and reliable public transportations (compare to my island: Bali), good food (well the slogan is true, it does represent a truly Asia) and to me the trip was still affordable (compare to its neighbor Singapore :D). The only problem was we didn’t spare enough time to explore more. We only managed to visit Batu Cave, Petronas Towers and getting around Changkat Bukit Bintang.

From Kuala Lumpur we flew to Siem Reap. We were so lucky that turned out it was a day before the three-day of Khmer New Year’s celebration. We stayed at Blossoming Romduol Lodge, perfect place for budget travellers. The staffs were helpful, good location and only within walkin distance to pub street or just $2 with tuk tuk. Although US dollar is the preferred currency I still found it cheap for me. We spent most of our times visiting Angkor and Pub Street, where the New Year’s celebrations were focused on. The party, the cultural events, I felt like seeing the old Bali in the 90’s. Just remember to be very careful of the scams, such as the “baby milk” scam, Airport arrival scams, the quick prayer to get your $10 for a blessing incense stick in Angkor. Those were the scams I had seen. I bet there were more. Make sure you get there in the right season. April was the peak of their dry season i guess. It was so hot and dusty, I do recommend you to wear sunglasses and face mask when you ride on tuk tuk.
