^kasi naman nakaka sunog talaga ng skin yung araw nila by 9-10 am na, and what more pag noon! kaya sobrang swerte napabili kami ng hats during day 1 for the temple walking. it also helps to bring a very sheer shawl, kahit yung shoulders ang sakit ng tama ng araw pag mid-day. dala ng tissue/smal towel lagi dahil sobrang mainit talaga. Winter pa raw tong time na to!

June 8 - Angkor [textspeak!], city tour
June 9 - travel back to HCM and a little bit shopping
June 10 - 1:00 am check in to travel back to Manila

june 6- water puppet and city tour, ok...yung cu chi sis, 1 hour kasi ang byahe diyan..what time ba ang dating niyo sa hcm? mas ok kung maaga, para kahit sa hapon maisingit niyo yung cu chi...kasi kung late kayo makakarating sa saigon, baka, city tour lang ang magagawa niyo...and i guess yung water puppet na rin...although may gumagawa ng cu chi, na yung tipong paalis na sila ng vietnam, kasi parang sabihin na natin mag-allot ka ng 2 hrs for cu chi...

june 7-12 hrs ang travel to SR from saigon. gimik at night? kung hinde pa kayo pagod...pwede why not? nung pumunta kami ng SR, dumating kami ng medyo late na pero since open naman ang night market, dun kami pumunta, nagtingin-tingin lang...maraming foreigners ang nagna-night market...kaya masaya...:-)

june 8-yes one day ang angkor visit...dapat maaga ka, para mas maraming mapuntahan. bring extra hand towel, umbrella and ofcourse water...mainit kasi dun at ofcourse, wear comfortable shoes...yung city tour within SR, maliit lang kasi yun eh...so kahit mga around night na kayo mag city tour...sayang naman kasi kung di niyo makita yung paglubog ng araw sa angkor...maganda daw...kasi kami nun, di na namin binalikan...napagod eh...LOL

^ sis, why don't you concentrate on hcmc first? if pupunta kayo sa sr, wala na kayong time for hcmc. bus hcmc to sr is 6 or 6:30am.

sample it
aug 18 hcmc to sr
aug 19 temple tour
aug 20 sr to hcmc

Sobrang init sa Siem Reap!  Favorite temple ko Bayon and Banteay Srei.   :D  Nakakapagod nga lang ang 12-13 hour trip from Saigon to SR.  :'(  Hindi na kami nanood ng Apsara dance, ayaw ng mga kapatid ko - pinambili na lang namin ng t-shirt.  Nasayangan lang ako, kasi talo ako ng majority, sila lahat ayaw manood.  I want to come back to Siem Reap - para manood ng Apsara dance!  ;D
