11 March 2018 – Travel Day – Koh Samui, Thailand to Siem Reap, Cambodia

Headed to the upstairs to enjoy our last breakfast in Thailand. It is another travel day, as we leave Thailand and are head for Cambodia.

I don’t understand some parents. The father had to coax the kid up onto this netting. It wasn’t too secure, IMHO, as it was only held on with what looked like cup hooks. And it was a long way down.

Waiting for the taxi to take us back to the Samui International (Disney like) Airport.

They offered free snacks and there was even a huge fish tank in the ladies washroom.

It was boarding time for our flight to Bangkok. We had to change planes here for Siem Reap.

As we took off there was that temple at the top of the hill. This time from the runway.

As were we flying with Bangkok Air we got a meal. It was Shrimp Pad Thai and was really good. I think the cake was some kind of green tea cake with a yummy coconut icing.

Flying into Bangkok you could really see some of their huge road systems.

And the sign that greets you. I’m not 100% sure but I think that Suvarnabhumi International Airport is one of the largest airports in the world.

The entrance to our gate was up a level from the actual gate and they had this there.

The meal which was served on our next leg, Bangkok to Siem Reap, did NOT get eaten as it was duck in the sandwich.

Landing at Siem Reap International Airport was like night and day from landing in Bangkok.

We had a driver from the hotel picking us up and the poor guy must have been waiting a long time. Not only was our plane late, it took a long time to get our Visas and through the immigration line. I also had to get some Cambodian money as you can not get it outside of Cambodia. I found out soon after that they also take US$ in Cambodia. Our hotel, Treasure Oasis Hotel, was great and everyone so friendly when we arrived.

Even though it was getting late the restaurant was still open so we went in to have a late dinner. It had been a long day. Doug had fish and chips. I had the chicken strips and fries. Both were really good.
