The bus fare includes a Tuk-tuk service to your hotel. Most of the establishments in Siam Reap accepts U.S. Dollars and the bus company office has a money changer inside if you want the local currency.
My Tuk-tuk driver offered to take me on the Temple tour early morning the next day for 50 USD, but most hotels can arrange this for you.
I have booked a room at Golden Banana Boutique Hotel through Agoda, because of its proximity to the night market and Pub Street for 25 USD. I will only be staying for the night since the tour starts early morning, and would return past the check-out time.
|My charming room at Golden Banana. For a little more than 1000 pesos, its a good value. I just wish I had more time to stay.|
To make the most of my trip, I decided to explore the night life of the city. I went around the night market, had a bowl of Vietnamese noodles near Pub Street, followed it with a foot massage and explored the Gay Club called Barcode.
The entire Pub Street is a mix of restaurants, shops and bars. Barcode is located at the far end, on a more quieter area. They have nightly performances of impersonators and a wide selection of drinks.
|Foot Massage! The price is almost the same as here in the Philippines!|
|I haven't tried Cambodian food, so I went for the familiar Vietnamese Pho|
|The Night Market|
|Barcode Drink of the Night!|

I would have stayed and drink all night but my temple tour would start in a few hours.
