I talked with a guest a few days back, she was in Phnom Penh by coincidence, She had gone with friends to see Ankor Wat, and since she now had a 30 day visa to Cambodia, she decided to stay here and see the country, a country she did not even know by name before arriving. Now she was asking advise about what to see, where to go, where to stay and what to eat. At 6 AM. Just of the night bus from Siem Reap.
Another guest was buying a bus ticket, only he had not quite made up his mind where he wanted to go, SihanoukVille or Siem Reap, or perhaps Kampot. He went to Siem Reap, it turned out that was the next available bus.
Then we had a couple who arrived late in the evening, got up early, went to the killing fields, the genocide museum, the palace, the national museum and took the architecture walk in the early evening, they then took a morning tour of the city and left by bus to Siem Reap right after lunch. Their entire trip planned from home, including room bookings, all tours and bus tickets,
It is interesting to see how differently travel can be planned.
