In September 2019 we decided to make a round trip to Asia and we found at Lidl Holidays, a very good offer. We found a round trip to visit 3 countries: Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand-Bangkok for 12 days with all visits included and breakfast .We paid 1300 euros per person and honestly I did not have high expectations from hotels considering that these countries are quite poor. Surprise, however! Lidl company exceeded all expectations, we had some beautiful hotels and rooms in this trip, and the breakfast was always rich and tasty.

If you want to visit Cambodia and you have the entrances at the main attractions not included you can buy tickets from Viator or Get Your Guide,You will save a significant amount of money.

Angkor Thom

We were extremely satisfied with the conditions offered in relation to the price, and the tourist guides who accompanied us during the trip were very nice, joking and helping you with whatever you needed, at any time.

Of course, although we had visits included,we also had a day off, sometimes. We chose to visit as many as possible.We did not stayed at the hotel at all.

Now that we have told you about the good conditions we had,we will continue to tell you about the trips we made. We have already presented the first part of our trip to Vietnam in a separate article, and now I will present the continuation of our trip to Cambodia.

Day 1 -Early in the morning, after breakfast we set off by speed boat on the Mekong River and after a few hours we managed to get to Cambodia,Phnom Penh.Arriving in Cambodia we got on the bus, and on the way to the hotel we stopped at the museum, and then at the Royal Palace.

Day 2- We went to visit the Ruins of the Temples of Cambodia that are in that forest for hundreds of years. There were many groups of tourists, and the locals when they saw the tourists, smiled at them and asked them if they wanted to take pictures with them.It was a nice experience.These are our memories:

Day 3 – We set off for the floating village of Tonlé Sap. It was wonderful to see the lives of the people there, but also sad to see their poverty .

On the last day of our trip we finally arrived in Siem Reap and were very excited waiting for the main attraction of the trip: to see Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Here were many world famous people: Jacqueline Kennedy, Japan’s Prince Akishino, Bill Clinton , Mark Zuckerberg, Hillary Clinton, Beyonce, Michelle Obama, David Beckham, Eva Longoria and Angelina Jolie, who filmed scenes for the movie Tomb Raider.
