Siem Reap

This is a complete list of posts and information concerning our trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia.

We stayed at the boutique hotel Terrasse des Elephants and ate most of our meals in the town of Siem Reap.  We also hired a private car to take us around the temples of Angkor.  Our drivers name was Sorn Ram and you can contact him by email at or by phone at (855) 1257 1459 or (855) 6962 8555  While he didn't give us tours within the temples, he was very knowledgeable about the sites as well as Cambodia's history.
