3.) City of Siem Reap!

Yes, we just said Siem Reap. The temples are amazing and leave us later on the list because you already know that Siem Reap is the gateway to Angkor Wat. What you may not know, however, is that Siem Reap is one of the nicest small cities in the world that is full of colonial charm. Old and new buildings do as well for a border of fun and life buzzing around. Street pubs for the night market all the way to cultural events that can be found on the front of the inviting river city of Siem Reap is full of activities and adventures.

The Killing Fields and S-21 Genocide Museum are not made so unpleasant and gore. Instead, they allow you to embrace the beauty of transformation and progress has become an essential part of what has allowed the Khmer people that emerge from this terror with an open heart to what the future holds.

The coffee in this country is incredibly rich and delicious and available hot or iced at any time of the day for an average price of $ 0.75 or $ 3,000 Riel! They can be found for even less and are usually served with a delicious serving of condensed milk. The coffee is rich as a pure delight of dark cocoa and is absolutely refreshing for warm days of exploration. Vietnam neighbor has a competitor with the likes of coffee roast Mondulkiri and other places too. If you are a coffee lover, you know how frustrating satisfied with Nescafé can be repeated, especially in Southeast Asia.

The Mekong River Irrawaddy dolphin is almost extinct and the highest concentration of them remaining in the Mekong and one of the highest in the world are here in Kratie! Transport can be organized and a van ride from Phnom Penh or Siem Reap you there in less than 3 or 4 hours! It is the ride and drive out of the observation area Dolphin is quite beautiful and lets you peek into the most humble of the Khmer community already distinguished.

7). Sihanoukville and the coast of the Gulf of Thailand.



Most people only think of when they think of Angkor Wat in Cambodia and they do not realize how small this spectacular country has to offer. With many fair coasts in the Gulf of Thailand, Cambodia offers some beautiful beaches and incredible islands and secluded for those who want to get away. Sihanoukville is a hip city on the coast which offers entertainment, restaurants and just about everything you need. Popular with expats, travelers and backpackers alike, Sihanoukville offers dream beaches to dream price. If you want to scoot off the beaten path a bit and enjoy something a little more relaxing, going to the beach Otres where there is enough life for you to get three meals a day that are not the same and do some mixing on the beach. The cabin of fungi and their cottages hip at the Golden Sunset and huts dream with the roller on the walls of thatch literally on the water, there is something about Otres for everyone! The islands are abundant as well and you can take a trip to the dreamy and idyllic Koh Rong where the last survivor series for France was filmed. The beaches are among the clearest in the world and can again be as far as one might be able to imagine or mixing with the local town and a few other tourists to Monkey Island! The possibilities are endless and a decline in fresh coast should certainly be a part of your trip to Cambodia!

8.) Phnom Penh.

Most people do not think much at the beginning of the charming capital and Sleepy Cambodia because there is not a huge nightlife scene or the like Khao San Road in Thailand, but do not look at this simple afford to miss the magic that is Phnom Penh, Cambodia. There is nothing not to love this capital city of the river front is filled with restaurants that are arranged back-to high-end. The town is small and easy to navigate anywhere in a tuk-tuk for less than $ 4 a still enough variety to keep you entertained. Beautifully constructed parks and plazas with monuments and statues occupy the city and they are perfectly aligned with flowers, plants, trees and monks walking. The whole river front is nicely paved and goes to meet the Naga Casino and Carnival of the water! Much is served in stylish and charming Phnom Penh. Fantastic restaurants can be found within the French colonial structures, picturesque and welcoming and if you're in the middle of a great trip, everything you might need can be found. The central Russian market department stores offer less than half the price of neighboring Thailand and if you need a visa to go to India or anywhere else on your way, it can most likely be easily found here!

9). Angkor Archaeological Park and Angkor Wat.

Angkor

This is one of the most amazing sights you can still see in your life and is a must for all travelers from around the world for many reasons. It is amazing to see the preservation of the work that has been done there over a thousand years on some of the temples and the level of detail and the perfect construction was before modern tools and means of construction were available. It really does make you think. When you visit the park, you get to cruise through the calm and happy life of the Cambodian people appreciate and see the family, cows and dogs as you venture through the vast park that make up the kingdom of Angkor. Once a decision-making for much of South Asia, the story is rich and you can enjoy kissing the end of each structure that you follow the story and the change of scenery of the watch as a rule religious change. One of the most interesting things about this empire if it was respect for the rule of religion previous rule, although religions have changed. It is curious to learn from the masters of the world, as they claimed to be at a time and see how the Khmer kingdom once triumphed before the tragedy. The story gives you an understanding of the wonderful people who are Khmer. Enjoy being close and personal with the temples without much interference of security, etc.. You can ride your bike, take a tuk-tuk, travel by bus and more throughout the park and are able to really see the detail close to making it even more enjoyable. There are so many temples that you may want to organize your days and time right so that you can beat the crowds and have the opportunity to see and photograph the temples without tourists everywhere, which is surprisingly easy to do.

10). Changing lives.

Most people do not think about their holidays, vacations and travel in terms of being life changing. We often think that other important elements, such as the food they serve, cleanliness and safety, availability of Western equipment, cost, etc. The amazing thing that Cambodia has to offer is a change in your perspective. It is almost impossible to travel across the country to learn from the history of the Khmer people have lived and see the Buddhist monks near Shrinesgenuine smiles on their faces today as they laugh at what many react to and not think that maybe there is something more to learn about life. People may appear to be poor by the standards of having "stuff", but they are rich in satisfaction and gratitude to them a very happy bunch of people leaving. The energy of happiness can be felt and the synergy of their lifestyle just screams at you. They understand that they need each other to survive and try to understand another fight against, knowing that need. It does not mean it is perfect, but it is beautiful and offers something to learn that will make you go home and look at life a little differently. This is something many look at how the Khmer people work together to survive and thrive, and it is possible for other crops that feed their socio-economic circle smooth symbiotic.

Traveling to Barcelona on a tight budget: 5 activities to enjoy the city without breaking the bank

Barcelona is known to be a must-see city. Its history, its main arteries, its incredible architecture and its sandy beaches make it one of the most attractive cities of the Mediterranean coasts. The city is huge, we have selected some activities to enjoy the city up.

1. Undeniable venue of tourists, the Gothic quarter nevertheless offers a myriad of small charming squares, which plunge the Walker in the medieval history of the town centre. The only Cathedral, Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulalia, is inevitably full of visitors (and, surprise, of snow geese that inhabit the courtyard of the cloister), but some more intimate places than any outstanding - as the Church of Santa Maria del Mar, which has one of the largest rosettes of Europe; El Call, the medieval Jewish quarter; and the Plaça Reial, residence of the counts of Catalonia, built in the 13th century. Orange Donut towers and Runner Bean Tours agencies offer a free tour of the district.
2 Markets Barcelona, live and exciting, you'll be ringside for a total immersion in the Aboriginal newspaper. Two not La Rambla, you will be muted by the merchant shouts of sellers of the Mercat de la Boqueria. With its majestic entrance and its stained, the place is a true architectural and culinary journey. Other markets are also worth a visit, as the Mercat de Navarro, but la Boqueria is the most common - and most expensive - of both. Here you will find many local specialities: Pan con tomato and Queso manchego will make a picnic perfect for a walk in the Park Güell.
3. The Parc Güell seems to be straight out of a fairy tale. A giant gingerbread man marks the entrance, opening onto a fancy ceramic statues, fountains and benches created by all the Barcelona Architect Antonio Gaudí. His creations, often mimicking the forms of nature, mingle perfectly with the vegetation in the Park. Exceed la Torre Rosa, curious little building which houses the Museum of Gaudi (need to pay to see the furniture designed by the architect); sit on the bench in the shape of serpents on the main terrace and enjoy stunning views of the city. The entry has long been free - its price will be € 8 per person from October 2013.
Gaudi, it tell you?
Lovers of Gaudí and his particular interpretation of art nouveau and modernism can admire the impressive Casa Batlló, Casa Milà and the emblematic Sagrada Familia, all available to the (outer) gaze of the public.
4 Platja de Barceloneta the beach of the city, is a beautiful place to relax after these wanderings. Stroll along the promenade, enjoy a drink at the water's edge and you will be seduced by the sight.
.. .and if it's raining?
It does not often rain in Barcelona, but Apartment Barcelona still thought of internal activities. In the event, unlikely, precipitation, CaixaForum Barcelona exhibition will fall timely.

A good deal

Phnom Penh, basic travel guide

Phnom Penh: the pearl of Asia Cambodia

Phnom Penh. Whether taken from the 1984 film The Killing Fields, or tales of hedonistic backpackers, the words themselves are guaranteed to evoke a particular atmosphere of their own, and for good reason. Phnom Penh, with its mix of chaos rude, shocking poverty, quaint charm and quiet beauty, is unique in the world, and quite a destination in its own right. The French called the "Pearl of Asia", a title he's quick appropriates.

Getting there

Most visitors fly in Cambodia from Phnom Penh International Airport, making it easy to get there. However, some entering the country by bus or theft of Siam Reap, the seat of the great ruins of Angkor Wat. Siam Reap, there are two options to make your way to Phnom Penh by bus along the excellent modern road built by American engineers, or by boat on the river / lake Tonle Sap. It will be available during and after the monsoon, as the dry season will drain the Tonle Sap to the point where the boat traffic on the lake area becomes impossible. Similarly, bus and boat into Saigon in Vietnam is possible with boats up the Mekong River.

Practice

To date, Cambodia is one of the countries that require special visas for tourists from almost all visitors. Chances are they will not just stamp your passport when you arrive at customs and immigration. Check with the Embassy of Cambodia regarding the requirements. Most Westerners can not get a visa on arrival, presenting passport photos and pay a slightly higher fee, but avoiding the hassle of passport at the embassy.

In 2006, there was an ATM operating throughout the city, which was a marked improvement. In the case of a technical failure, make all the money you need, mixed between checks and cash travel.

Move

Parts of Phnom Penh that will interest most visitors are located in a small area of ??travel. You will most likely not need a ride to get to most places in the city until the heat and humidity you drain. In addition, walking is strongly encouraged as a way to take in as much of the city as possible.

While taxis, rickshaws and tuk tuk (a tricycle passenger motor) are available, much more common and also more in tune with the way people do things is to hail a guy goes about his business on his motorcycle , tell him where you want to negotiate a price, and hop on the back. Sometimes it will seem most people who drive motorcycle in Phnom Penh moonlighting as taxi drivers improvised. Sometimes these motorcycle taxis part-time do not know where you're going, but they are pretty cool about it so do not be shy about making them get directions they seem to have no idea where they will . As long as you do not quit and they do not lose the price, they will be happy.

Do not rent a bike yourself. Trafficking in Cambodia is chaotic and dangerous even by Asian standards. Only expatriates should even dare to try to move on their own in any kind of vehicle. To illustrate this point, the author has a T-shirt with a winged motorcycle and "Phnom Penh Motorscooter Club" emblazoned on the back. On the front is a target.

The City

Phnom Penh sits at the confluence of the Tonle Sap and Mekong River and is the undisputed center of the country. With a population of 1 million people, it is relatively low compared to its rivals in Southeast Asia (Bangkok weighs 6.7 million euros, for example). The capital of the province of the French Empire until the 1950s, the city remained the capital of sleepy backwater of a country whose export was leading rice until the Khmer Rouge took over in 1975. The civil war that followed their fall lasted two decades. The result was that when Phnom Penh began to leave his past trauma in the late 1990s, it has been well preserved since it was not overdeveloped, and had always something still stood its architectural heritage (which turned out to be a lot). This is not Bangkok or Jakarta, littered with ugly concrete buildings stained by the accumulated pollution of millions of two-stroke engines. While the streets may be littered with trash, the look and feel of the city are such that it takes little or no imagination to see what it must be like in 1965, when he was often called the "Paris of the Orient "and" Pearl of Asia ". The result is one of the most physically beautiful cities throughout Asia, especially along Sisowath Quay, the main street along the river.

The other side of the city is that it is bad. While in general are much Rouge friendly, you should expect to be harassed by street children who sell trinkets, touts and scammers around any place frequented by tourists. The best way to treat them is to treat them as local color (if the local color often unpleasant), and remember that losing your cool in Cambodia is wrong pal important and rarely get you anywhere.

Attractions

Although smaller than its grandiose counterpart in Bangkok, the Royal Palace is beautiful. Complex closes at noon (sensitive Rouge beat the heat by taking a nap), no photography is allowed and you are required to show modesty and respect for the king (who still lives there!) Not wear short shorts and tank tops. However, the castle, the Silver Pagoda and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha worthwhile. The Emerald Buddha is a relic of precious jade, while floor tiles unique silver Silver Pagoda were lucky to escape looting by the Khmer Rouge.

The National Museum is a good stop for a primer before going to Angkor Wat, if you've been there it will seem disappointing. The infamous giant bats do not live in the roof of the building, after being cleaned during renovations in 2002 (how is that history is in the guides?). Wat Phnom and the stupa hill are doing a nice visit and great pictures. Another Buddhist temple to visit is Ounalum Wat, the largest temple in Cambodia active. The abott is widely regarded as the nominal leader of Buddhism in Cambodia.

No visit to Phnom Penh would be complete without at least two visits to Sisowath Quay. With most of the above attractions located along or near the road to the river, walk during the day. Then be sure to come back for dinner one night while you're in the city.

For a taste of the colonial era, or the heyday of journalism in the decadent 1960s Phnom Penh, be sure to make stops at the famous Raffles Hotel and the Foreign Correspondents Club. While it is undoubtedly the most expensive city for food or drink places, atmosphere both are simply not to be missed.

The Dark Side

Phnom Penh hosts two major monuments of the monstrosity that was the revolutionary regime of the Khmer Rouge. In the city itself is Toul Sleng, a school that was converted into the infamous S-21 prison. While most people who died under the Khmer Rouge were murdered or starved and worked to death in the country, S-21 had 14,000 inmates through his small enclosure under the Khmer Rouge. Only 8 survived.

The others were tortured until they confessed to be reactionary or traitors, and then they were released in the second memorial in Phnom Penh, the Killing Fields of Cheoung Ek. It is a serene-yet-morbid place. The main monument is a Buddhist stupa where hundreds of human skulls were stacked in a tower. The main features of these grounds are the remains of where mass graves were dug, and incompletely to the following: dirt is visibly compacted with bits of bone and clothing. One aspect of the wildest west of Phnom Penh is available on travel to and from Cheoung Ek - "Ranges" of the city, where for a small fee, you can shoot pistols, shotguns , assault rifles, machine guns powered band, and throw grenades. These facilities do not offer the possibility of RPG fire and small tank guns, even if it can be arranged if you are willing to pay a pretty hefty pot of wine.

Worse than this is the ongoing tragedy of Meanchey Garbage Dump Treng, where hundreds of poor people (including children) in the region to look something of value they can find. This is the worst kind of macabre "people zooism" beggars the imagination and how it even gained a reputation as a sordid attraction. A better use of time for those who are curious about the poverty in Cambodia is to visit a reputable NGOs working with the poor as a child Pour smile or an arts and traditional job-training program like Artisans Angkor.

Shopping

To get an idea of ??life in Phnom Penh, a stop at the 1930s art deco glory Psar Themy, or Central Market, is simply a must. They sell everything from clothing, electronics, jewelry, tourist trinkets, fresh (or maybe not so fresh) meat beef and fish, food, spices, everything. A good tip is that Gap and other clothiers have factories outside Phnom Penh, and denies them (often with very minor defects) wind for the main market for pennies on the dollar. Add a few ways to negotiate your krama (traditional checkered Cambodian scarf)! Another market worth a visit is the "Russian Market", so-called because of its major customers in the days when Vietnam ruled the country.

Ideal lake

Near Wat Phnom, the calm Lake Beoung Kek. A string of guest houses and bars are located on a narrow cul-de-sac street, just far enough from the main streets to preserve a bit of calm. Most guest houses overlooking the lake, with its lotus flowers and small fishing skiffs. It is an ideal place to relax in a hammock with a beer, watch the sunset and catch a cool breeze. Even if you do not stay around Beoung Kek, you may want to visit to get a break from the rest of Phnom Penh. In addition, the open end of the alley is the only center of Islamic studies in Phnom Penh, sponsored by Saudi Wahhabi (the same branch of Islam that gave us Osama bin Laden!)

Night life

An institution of the city dating from the early 1990s is pleased Herb Pizza. Embracing the local tradition of the use of certain drugs in the kitchen, you can guess what they use instead of oregano in the preparation of the pizza! Good Herb is now surrounded by imitators, but do not be fooled and go directly to the original.

Another institution Phnom Penh, bar Sharkey in a noisy environment. A cut above in terms of Sharkey edgy atmosphere is the heart infamous club Darkness. Staying up late: after 3 or 4 in the morning, the cream of organized Khmer and youth spoiled county political elite crime will start to turn up, with their bodyguards in tow. If someone asks you to move, it is advisable to give up your seat. From time to time someone gets shot either in front or behind the bar, but most of the time it's just a nightclub that attracts a large and really weird mix of people. Friday and Saturday nights are always packed.

Tourists Chinese caused the boom of hotels in Hong Kong

Hong Kong needs to almost double its hotel rooms over the next decade to meet the growing demand, according to a government task.

The working group specializing in industry conference and exhibition in tourism has also noted that the number of tourists visiting Hong Kong will increase significantly over the next 10 years, visits driven by a steady increase in the number of tourists from mainland China, fueling the need for many more hotel rooms.

In 2012, Hong Kong received a record 48.6 million visitors, up 16% from a year earlier, according to the Tourism Commission of Hong Kong.

Among these visitors, 71.8% came from mainland China. About 68,300 hotel rooms in the city have enjoyed an average occupancy rate of 89% last year.

"If the Chinese economy continues to grow in the coming years and if the earnings and incomes continue to rise, while mainland tourists continue to be a major source of tourist arrival in Hong Kong," said Raymond Yeung, senior economist at ANZ.

Analysts expect that the tourism industry in Hong Kong continues to increase after the implementation of major development projects, including the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge and the railway connecting Hong Kong high-speed Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

While the government has invested in exhibitions, trade fairs and marathons, Mr. Yeung said that the government should work harder to attract tourists as Hong Kong faces competition from cities in mainland China. Tourism accounts for about 5% of the gross domestic product of Hong Kong.

Despite the increasing number of visitors from China, the growth in the hotel industry in Hong Kong has been tempered by a decline in the number of tourists from the United States and the rest of Asia. tourism saw a temporary windfall in 2011 while visitors from Japan went to Hong Kong after the earthquake.

Michael Li, executive director of the Federation of owners of hotels in Hong Kong, said he expected the number of hotel rooms in the city going to rise to 76,000 compared to the current figure of 68,300 in 2017 with the help of expansion projects.

The call for a greater capacity of the hotel also comes at a time when the shortage of land in Hong Kong causes more uproar among residents, prompting the head of the city, Leung Chun-ying, has recently pointed out that the need for hotel rooms must be weighed against the demand for housing.

Although the number of tourists increased last year, nearly 25 million of them were day visitors, and therefore the hotel occupancy rate in the city is unchanged for 2012.

Li urged caution against the too rapid expansion of hotel capacity. It indicates that the expansion of hotels requires a very careful examination of the behavior of tourists and other economic trends. Invest in hotels is a long-term which usually takes at least 10 years to get a return.

In addition, Li said that with the increase in the number of hotel rooms, there should be a simultaneous increase in frontline staff and management leadership, something he is not sure the Hong Kong education system could bring.

Visiting a city in the South of the France

I finished my school year early so I was already able travel a little bit. Certainly, it was a short trip, but it always.
I went on holiday in the South of the France to see a longtime friend. It is always a good way to go when it already has someone you know in a place that one has not yet visited.

Indeed, so I decided to go on holiday in Toulouse. I have family also the bottom, but I don't see that in the large family meals because the journey is quite expensive if we decide from the often and more family. I was first asked in a hotel close to the train station to avoid having too many road to ask my suitcases. I'm the kind of girl to bring any of his wardrobe on vacation so it is not practical to have to make the way to ask.
Then, I joined my friend so he could let me know a little his favorite in this city and of course tourist places places. I was lucky, as seen that it was not really in high season, there was therefore not many tourist. What facillite things to visit. Then, I was doing a little bit of shopping to bring back memories. I love to bring things of the places where I'm going. It's like a kind of trophies for me. It is also the opportunity to buy souvenirs for your family and your friends who remained where you live. In the evening, I wanted to discover the city at night.

I find that it's completely different to visit a city day and night, it's a bit like visiting another city. So I went to a restaurant with my friend in order to eat a little bit and then we went walk us. Indeed as early as the dark, buildings, monuments and other old town are lit, this is, I think, a good development of this city.
I could not been long since I had to return home fairly quickly, but I find that leave out the summer to also of the good. If you have a holiday off the two months where everyone goes on vacation, go relax somewhere. You can be on that there will be less tourists than in the high season, and it's a plus to be better able to relax I find.
