In our TENTH episode, we visit Siem Reap, Cambodia, home of the famous Angkor Wat! We get a room in a Siem Reap hostel, hire a Khmer guide to show us around, visit a lotus farm, hang out with Cambodian kids, play volleyball, eat a ton of Cambodian food and street food (like snake soup, grilled mouse, and beef lok lak). Then, we visit the Night Market and Pub Street and top the day off with a sinfully delicious chocolate banana pancake and a cold Angkor beer – all for 20 U.S. dollars!
Total cost to travel Siem Reap for a full day:
Twin private room: split, 2 people = $5 apiece
Local guide: $5 apiece
Iced coffee: $0.50
Beef and yellow noodles: $2
Lotus farm visit: $0.50
Snake soup: $0.75
Grilled mouse: $0.75
Bunch of bananas: $1.22
Scallion & cabbage cake: $0.50
Beef lok lak dinner: $2.50
Chocolate banana pancake: $1
Angkor beer: $0.50 (34 cents over the budget)
TOTAL COST: $20.34!!
*If you visit Siem Reap, you must visit the ancient Angkor Wat. It’s an incredibly well maintained temple site with massive, ornate, well- preserved temples and other buildings. Admission into Angkor Wat costs $20 for a day pass, so for my fellow $20 per day budget travelers, be sure to factor this one in to the cost of visiting Siem Reap!
