    Attractions

    Backstreet Academy

    These guys bring together local craftsmen and tourists for fun-filled arts n craft classes. Its worth going if you want to learn how to make some Cambodian craft. Allow at least two hours.

    There are no words to describe the beauty of Angkor Wat Temples. 250sq miles of structures that just boggle the mind and senses. Hundreds of years in the making honoring religions, deities and kings.

    These guys offer a genuine insight into the lives of the animals they save and protect, and with our deeply knowledgeable guide I came away excited that the animals have such a team of advocates on their side.

    Very sad and haunting experience, but definitely worth a visit. The site is informative and appropriately respectful of the genocide that occurred here, although visitors may find it overwhelming as bones and clothing of prisoners are still being unearthed by rain and litter the site. The guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and speak excellent English.

    This is the house of veteran Martin Wickramasinghe turned into a museum. The artefacts are displayed really well with lots of descriptions in a English.

    Places To Eat

    Kanell

    The best Khmer food I had in Siem Reap, served in a wonderful garden that makes you forget that you are in a busy and loud city. Great food and perfect service. Not too close to downtown but easy enough to get to.

    Tucked away in the back streets, it is probably a wise idea to take a tuk-tuk there as it was a bit tricky to find in the dark. It's worth finding as the food is incredible and the staff are so friendly.

    James

    In a word fantastic. Location, superb. Caters for Eastern and western tastes. Staff really amazing, friendly and good sense of humor. Wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend.

    A training restaurant with very high standards. The food here is excellent Khmer cuisine and the service was impeccable. I love the fact that my money is going to a good cause.

    James

    This is a great restaurant. The food was extremely tasty and the service was good. They also have nice cocktails. A must if you are in Phnom Penh.

    Traveller Tips

    Explore Phnom Kulen National Park

    This place is a world of it's own. About 50 km from Siem Reap and up a mountain. But once in the park, the giant carved reclining Buddha and swimming at the waterfall are worth the ride.

    Check out the Royal Palace

    The Royal Palace is comprised of a number of different buildings and monuments, all surrounded by lush gardens. It's a nice place to walk around and admire the lavish architecture of the khmer culture.

    Explore Sinharaja Forest Reserve

    Sinharaja is a world on its own, far from everywhere and ideal for the real nature lovers. You can walk the trails on your own or get a guide.

    Visit the Kandy Garrison Cemetery

    A well maintained place near the center of town. Be aware there is a closing time. It gives a sobering insight into the harsh and dangerous existence of Dutch and British colonists in Sri Lanka.

    James

    Visit the Gangaramaya (Vihara) Buddhist Temple

    Although a bit hard to find this temple is well worth a visit. The temple is absolutely loaded with artefacts and offerings from people over many years. They've put everything on display there including gold and silver jewellery, wrist watches and coins.

    Yelagiri an emerging weekend destination

    Gone are the days when this little virgin hill station popularly known as ‘ The Poor Man’s Ootty’ needed an introduction. Situated in Vellore Dt, TN, 220 Kms from Chennai and 150 kms from Bangalore, today this little hill has become the favorite weekend destination of the Bangaloreans and Chennaites, thanks to the ‘Golden Quadrilateral’ highway network between Chennai and Bangalore that is further developing into a six lane super highway.
    Just deviate from this highway at Vaniyambadi and drive up to Ponneri from where the ghat road ( 17 Kms from Vaniyambadi) with 14 hairpin bends leads you to the beautiful, unexploited nature … Yelagiri.

    Getting About in Anjuna

    Renting a scooter is a wonderful way of getting around here. Be aware that the only road law is to give way to all cows!

    Yoga Retreats

    Anjuna on the northern tip of Goa is famous for people in search of the hippy in them. There are many yoga retreats. This place swells in the dry season so booking is recommended.
