We moved to another hostel cause there weren’t any more available rooms in the current one. We weren’t picky at all so we just took the first budget option we found on the internet. 5 bucks per head – I think that says enough.
The window looks into the storage room, water smells like rust, there are wires sticking out of the wall, the toilet can’t be flushed, and at 1 AM there was a power cut that lasted for a few hours (so did our fan stop working). It was so tragic that started to be funny.
Butna, the driver, recommended me to try the traditional Cambodian meal – Fish Amok served in a fresh coconut. It’s kind of a fish soup with vegetables, but with a strong coconut flavor. It wouldn`t be an exaggeration if I say that that’s the only meal I could never eat the whole plate. After a few bites, I tried to take out the fish parts, but the flavors were already pretty married. Fish + coconut, hmm, I really wouldn’t recommend.
In the evening we went to try fish foot massage. 15 minutes foot massage + cold beer in a can costed us exactly 1 USD. And no, it’s not a typo. We’ve got some huge fishes which acted pretty violently. I didn’t like their attitude so I left them foodless and drank my beer. But Ceda enjoyed it. He likes rough.
Fish Foot Massage Siem ReapWe stopped at some 2-dollars-cocktail-bar to drink a few Long Islands, but the lady that works there seemed not very familiar with cocktails. Ceda, a former bartender, then got inside the bar and showed her how to do it which made not just her super excited, but also everyone around the bar.
Is there any dish you’ve tried you would never recommend? Why don’t you share it in the comments?
