Island korong samloem
Ankor Wat temples in Siem Reap
The plan was to land at Phnom Penh and travel from it right away, but my partner felt sick so we had to stay couple of night. Eventually, it was good thing because I spent the time learning the history of the Cambodian genocide. That experience made me feel more connected the country and to the people.
The day after we split, and I have traveled to Siem Reap in the North. I met some cool people in the hostel and we hired some bikes, riding to Ankor Wat Temples.
After a few days in Siem Reap I traveled to Banlung where I met a Cambodian guy named Neran, who guided me and another Israeli girl to 3 days jungle trip, which was crazy intense experience.
After the trek I took a bus all the way to the Sihanukville, nice city in the South beach. From there I took a boat to Corong Samluem, the most beautiful island I have ever seen.
I spent an amazing relaxing week on this clear natural island, enjoyed every magical moment in such a dreamy place.
I could stay there all my life, but I had to come back so I took the boat back to Sihanukville and from there traveled all the way back to Israel.
