In my first book, The Long Road From Pub Street, I tell the story of my trip across Cambodia, from Siem Reap, to Phnom Penh.

Siem Reap

Pub Street, Siem Reap's backpacker street which gives its name to my book. Here, you can find delicious food, cheap hostels, and $0.25 draught beer.

 Angkor Wat

Visiting Angkor Wat is one of the main reasons that people go to Siem Reap. The best time to visit the famous temple complex is just before dawn, to watch the sun rise behind the ancient Khmer ruins.

 Angkor Wat was the greatest city of the ancient Khmer Empire.

While I don't exactly agree with riding elephants (see THIS article or THIS ebook for more information), I thought that this picture of the elephants, tuk-tuk, monks, and ruins of Angkor Thom really captured the spirit of visiting Angkor Historical Park.

Angkor Thom

Although most people visit Angkor Wat as tourists, the ancient Hindu-turned-Buddhist temple complex is still a holy site in Cambodia.

Sihanoukville

On the road, we stopped for baguettes, and... well, you know the story!

By the time we arrived in Sihanoukville, Typhoon Chaba was picking up. We ended up stuck on the mainland longer than we had intended.

Koh Rong

Our bungalow! Home, sweet home while we were on Koh Rong! We were really and truly roughing it, but it was definitely an unforgettable experience.

Mosquito netting was a must!You can see, above the bed, the gap between the wall and the roof. That's where the monkey came into the bungalow one morning!

The bathroom was open to the elements! Luckily there was nobody around except monkeys. It was really just like camping.

But despite the rough accommodations, the island was beautiful!

After the typhoon passed, the sky was blue, the sand was dazzling white, and the sea was clear as glass.

Phnom Penh 

The Independence Monument in downtown Phnom Penh. It's modeled after Khmer-style architecture, like at Angkor Wat.

For our last evening, we went out on a sunset cruise along the Mekhong River. The skyline of Phnom Penh isn't so built up yet. It was a perfect way to end our trip to Cambodia.
