10 Things To Do In Siem Reap

Siem Reap is the city adjacent to the ancient city of Angkor that hosts travelers from around the world who’s main objective is explore the temple of the ancient city of Angkor. However, there are other things to do in siem reap beyond the temple hopping experience in Angkor Wat Complex. Here’s a quick list of Other Things To Do In Siem Reap

    1. Pub Street

      It may not be as wild as Soi Cowboy in Bangkok but Pub Street does offer a good number of bars. Beers prices start for as low as $.50 and food can be priced at your usual bar prices. Just make sure you don’t bring valuables cause the night can be a bit too crazy and intoxicating, you wouldn’t want to wake up losing your wallet.

    2. War Museum

      Cambodia as recent as the 1970’s has seen the horrors of war. Visiting the war museum is one of the other things to do in Siem Reap. It showcases the arms and equipment used during the time of struggle to gain independence from the vicious dictatorship of Polpot. Siem Reap was one of the places where people were sent to farm for the country, which unfortunately was a bad decision snce they were city people who do not know how to farm.

    3. Tonle Sap Tour

      South east Asia’s biggest lake, the Tonle Sap hosts to communities who have adapted living on water. You will find restaurants, houses and even schools floating on the lake. Be careful though with scams about the orphanage. Tours usually include the Kampong Phluk Floating Village (pictured below) which is by a flood plain by the river. When the water level rises the whole village seem to look like it is floating as the plains become part of the river as well.

    4. Cambodian Circus

      Catch the performance of the Pharem Circus near downtown Siem Reap can be one other things to do in siem reap that you can put on your list. The circus features acts by specially trained performers from the same province

    5. Apsara Dancers

      You can find different Apsara Dance shows in hotels but they might be a bit expensive. You can however check out Koulen restaurant’s buffet dinner with Apsara Dancer Show at about $12 a person. You can call them to reserve a seat but I don’t think that will actually reserve a specific table for you even if you ask so be there early. Try to locate you selves near the stage since the back side of the room can make it hard for you to see the show because of the pillars. The food they serve are mainly Cambodian food so expect that there’ll be lesser meat and more on the vegetable side. You may want to ask if they still offer pick-up service from the hotel you are staying with for your convenience.

    6. Cambodian Cultural Village

      Never actually been here but a friend did visit the park once. They say that the park was okay, there were shows that show cultural dances and other things about Cambodia. There are also places for photo-ops that shows some kind of sized down Cambodia (think of Nayong Pilipino)

    7. Lotus Farms

      Lotus are a main accessory in Buddhist worship and plays a big role in its history. You can find various lotus farms to supply the demands of the faithful several kilometers from downtown. It is best to visit the farms during harvest season where you can find Lotus flowers blooming. A visit to these farms can be really special during bloom season and is a perfect activity if you are thinking of other things to do in Siem Reap

    8. Watch Shadow Puppetry

      One of the Cambodia’s cultural heritage is shadow puppetry. Traditional shadow puppetry is shown using a big bonfire at the back of a white linen where the shadows are projected. Paper cu-outs mounted on sticks are used to be able to create these beautiful shadows.

      Bikes are available almost at all hotels in Siem Reap. If you are looking for a guided tour though you can check out organizations like ButterflyTours to help you find off the beaten path routes around the city or even the entire province.

    10. Mt. Kulen

      About an hour away from down town Siem Reap, Mount Kulen is not the first thing tourist think about Siem Reap. But after all the temple hopping and partying a trip to Mt. Kulen and its waterfall can be literally refreshing!

A Night Of Good Food With The Saigon Free Walking Tours

Whenever someone asks me “what is it there to see in Viet Nam” I always reply with “You are asking the wrong question, you should be asking what is there to taste in Viet Nam”. So it was a delight to learn that there’s a group in Ho Chi Minh that provides free tours for tourists thanks to the Saigon Free Walking Tours.

The Saigon Free Walking Tours offers several walking tours that will take you around and introduce you to the city. Their tours includes Saigon City Tour, Night Tour and Food Tour. We chose to take the food tour since we really wanted to taste and experience the food that locals eat every day.

Our tour guides from Saigon Free Walking Tours fetch us up at our hostel with their motorbikes ready to roll down the streets of Saigon. I got to ride with Bao the senior in the group in showing people around.  It was quite exciting riding around the streets of Ho Chi Minh at the back of a motorbike along with the rest of Saigon.

Our first stop was for Snails. Call me a bit squeamish but my last encounter with snails as food wasn’t really that appetizing.  I left the decision making to my friends John and Prey. We thought that we can try all except one (we that type of snail in The Philippines). Oh yeah here comes brave Ian willing to try exotic food. Honestly I thought that I’ll just try a couple then I’ll let them finish everything.

The store staff took our snails and sent them back to the kitchen. We sat on stools inside the store property as we wait for our snails to be cooked. It felt like we were really immersing into the Vietnamese way of life as we were the only non-locals there. I cannot imagine any tourist finding their way after how many turns and alleys our motorbikes took.

We were quite full already after this stop but as they say always leave room for dessert! Our next stop was for dessert. Now, we have Haloit.halo back here in Manila and this dessert maybe some kind of a relative to it. Prey ordered Lotus seeds with milk while I asked for one on the sweet side with  Durian and Jack Fruit (I think) and a generous serving of milk. It was a little bit too sweet for me but the fruits in it made me finish the entire glass!

The tour ended at Nguyen Hue street plaza in front of the Ho Chi Minh city hall. There were honestly more food found on the street but we were just too tired from the day’s activities we had and are too full from the first stop. Ughh… so there’s one quick tip for you don’t stuff your self so much on your first stop… but it was just soooo good! Our tour guides were really awesome giving us more than a food tour. Some history and facts about the country made it a little more interesting. This is why having a local to take you around really is awesome. But not only that, you also help these students practice their English skills as they take you around Saigon.

saigon free walking tours

We walked all the way through the plaza till we reached the Saigon river where flags of different nations are hoisted. The night was indeed still young but it has been a long day for us. We headed home and retired to our beds, we just can’t get enough of how awesome food in Saigon can be. In fact, I thought that I may want to spend a week in Saigon just to taste all the different food that they have. That is how beautiful the food culture is in Viet Nam. I can say that we really had a great time with Kim and Bao 🙂

Must Try Food In Taipei

They say Taiwan is how China could have been if it wasn’t for the cultural revolution. They shunned many of their traditions and beliefs and turned themselves to the communist ideology. None the less, there is one thing that China and Taiwan shares best; Food Culture. Not known to many Taiwan is one of the best places in Asia to discover flavors that you did not know existed. Food combinations that can be quite odd but taste so good.

On my recent trip to Taipei, Taiwan’s beautiful capital I’ve indulged my self into an eating free in one of their famous night markets and some other random street foods. Here are a few of the Taiwanese food that you should try when in Taipei!

Huajiao Bing

Pepper seasoned pork filled bun baked inside a tandori looking kind of oven. Unlike other pork filled buns, The Huajiao Bing’s bread is hard outside and crumbling inside.

Carbon Barbecue

Bacon or Chicken fillet wrapped spring onions wrapped barbecues grilled over charcoal. They are cooked in batches and are sold separately. Each one are individually skewered with a toothpick to keep them together. Each one cost about NT24 a piece.

Taiwanese Pancake

Also known as a  Scallion cake, this pancake is cooked on a flat pan like a roti. Scallions or onion springs are added to the batter mixture giving it its name scallion cake. It is a cheap yet filling food that you can bite on if you need something to eat yet don’t have the time to eat a proper meal.

Stinky Tofu

Probably the most famous dish that comes as a dare to a lot of western tourists. Before being grilled or fried and topped with vegetables.

Cranberry Juice

Made from fresh Cranberries you can find several of these stalls around Shilin Night Market. This is a perfect first stop before starting your food trip around the market so you’d have something to drink along with your food.

Gong Rou Fan

Rice in a bowl topped with tender pork chop that just melts in your mouth. The dish also has pickled cucumbers to cleanse your palette. The best Gong Rou Fan can be found in Ximen area  and costs about NT65

Hot Star Whole Chicken Breast

Though Hot Star has branches here in Manila, I’d say that it is still worth trying out this food on where it started. You find this stall with a line of customers most of time waiting for another batch of fried chicken breast goodness to be served.

 

Bubble Tea 

It wouldn’t be right not to try out Bubble Tea from its place of birth. Yes, the bubble tea that wee know was born in Taipei! It’s amazing how many flavors one can try with each Bubble Tea shop that one can find in every corner of the city.

Ice Cream Burrito

I am not sure if this is a Jiufen specialty but I didn’t notice this sold anywhere else. The Ice Cream Burrito (just made that name up -can’t remember sorry bad memory) is basically a scoop or two of ice cream wapped together with peanut shavings and cilantro in a spring roll wrapper.

Taro Balls

Also found this one in Jiufen, where they serve it either hot or cold with milk. Its basically just taros shaped in spheres served with milk. I specially liked this one hot when I tried it in Jiufen when it was freezing cold that day. Oh yeah, this reminds me of our Filipino Ginataang Halo-Halo

Hover Over Trees At The Maokong Gondola

Blessed with a mountainous topography, Taiwan is rich with mountains and hiking trails that you can leisurely trek in one of your visits. Together with a good climate, it could actually be a good place to grow herbs such as tea. Maokong is a little village at the top of the hills of Taipei.

Maokong is specially known for its awesome teas and plantation. However, recently this small village is starting to be known more for something else. Last 2010, the Taipei MRT (operator of the Maokong Gondolas) launched a new type of cabin called crystal cabins. These cabins features a clear glass that allows passengers to see the ground where their gondolas are hovering over. maokong

After taking a leisurely ride on the Maokong Gondola, you will arrive at the terminal station of Maokong. As soon as you alight the station walk uphill until you see various tea shops offering different kinds of teas, food and the beautiful view of Taipei from a distance.

How To Get To Maokong

The most convenient way to get to Maokong is via the Taipei MRT. Just get your self on any line (they are all interconnected) and get off at the Taipei Zoo MRT. From the MRT station walk about 400 meters south of the station then take the Maokong Gondola.

Gondola Fares

What To Do In Maokong

Riding the gondola alone is an experience in Maokong. However, I think that one must also experience dinning and sipping that cup of tea at this hill top village. The calming effect of the tea is complimented by the breath taking view of Taipei. There are also shops that havegood selection of food choices that will just tickle your taste buds.

The Hot Springs Of Beitou

One of the best things that the Japanese colonizers has left in Taiwan is the Hot Springs or Onsen culture. Beitou, a district at the northern end of Taipei is where you’ll find the best onsens. Throughout the district you will find Onsens that range from a local hotspring just like the Lung Nai Tang to high end facilities. With so much choices, here are my favorite Hot Springs Of Beitou

XinBeitou Area

This area is the easier one to get to. Just take the Red MRT Line to Beitou station then change trains to the Branch line going to Xin Beitou. This area is the toursity part, but for a good reason. Here are some of the spots that you can check out while in XinBeitou.

Hot Springs Of Beitou

Long Nai Tang

The Long Nai Tang is the oldest still in operation public bath house in Taipei. The bath house traces its history back to the Japanese era when the colonizers introduced the Onsen culture to the Taiwanese people. Do not expect much with the facilities though. The public bath is as local as you can get. There are no lockers just some shelves where you can put your clothes in. The shower area is on one corner of thee bath house where you use a dipper to clean your self from the cold flowing spring water. There’s no separate wet and dry area where you can change, basically its just one space (about 25sqm) where you undress,clean and bathe. Though it lacks the glamorous facilities, its historic value as the oldest hot springs of  beitou sure makes up for it.

Hot Spring Area

Most of the mid-range hot springs resorts are located in this area. The resorts are built around the sulfuric hot springs where the therapeutic waters are sourced from. Price range from this are varies from 200 – around 500 NT

Sakuraoka Hot Springs

Aside from Lung Nai Tang, The Sakuroka Hot Springs resort is the other hot spring resort that I have tried so far. Sorry I don’t have any personal photos of it because I forgot to take a photo when there was still light. Then, it was dark already when I got out because I really enjoyed soaking in their hot tubs.

Yes, you are required to be naked while taking a bath. I strongly suggest you try it, you’ll bathe together with families of fathers and sons for me and mothers and daughters for girls. You’ll feel relieved in the sense that you’ll realize that there’s nothing to be embarrassed about bathing together in public.

I promise to make a proper review of the place when I get back to Taipei. This is a good one though.

Hot springs of beitou

Other Spas that I recommend

Emperor Hot Springs – Better than Sakuraoka Hot Springs as per reviews.

There are gay spas so please ask the reception if they are one. I mistakenly got into one, there are no signs like the LGBT flag on their doors and reception. I just kept an open mind. They were all behave…. it was way too early for the rush hour people to come in anyway… hahaha!

Suggested Itinerary

You can go around the Beitou tourist area first and visit the museums and eat ramen for lunch then later in the after noon you can go to the hotsprings and enjoy the therapeutic waters of the hot springs of Beitou.

How To Get To The Hot Springs of Beitou

To get to Xin Beitou, just take the Red Line MRT the change platforms to the branch line going to Xin Beitou. If you want to go straight to the Onsens, just take the red line and get off at Shipai Station. Get on a 509 Bus and get off at Xing Yi Lu San bus stop and walk down the street. Fare from Shipai Station is NT$15

Beitou: Bathing Nude In Sakuraoka Hot Springs

One of the activities that I look forward every time I visit Taiwan is a visit to one of their Hot Springs. The Beitou district of Taipei is heaven for hot springs junkies like me and if you are comfortable bathing nude in public you will absolutely enjoy this activity.

On my second time in Taipei, I went out of my way hunting for this particular spa; The Sakuraoka Hot Springs Spa. I knew about this hot springs facility way back but couldn’t find it. So this time I made sure to find it and experience the spa. I was really interested by their website where they show that can see the Taipei 101 and a good view of the forest while dipping in their hot tubs.

So i got off at the XinBeitou MRT terminal and started to look for the place. Maps.Me seem not to be working so I tried to use Google Maps. Both couldn’t find the address so I keyed the name of the place instead. It worked! But….. the map threw the pin on an off road destination in the mountains. I checked if it was walk-able but it’s just too far, and the incline could be too taxing. So I hailed a cab.

Finally, I got to the Spa.

The interiors are okay nothing grand but gives you a sense of Japanese influence to it. I approached the counter asked for admission.

Entrance Fee: NT$ 200 (Monday – Friday), NT$ 250 (Holidays, Friday night till Sunday)
Towel Fee: NT$ 50 (you can bring your own)
Visit Duration: Unlimited

One of their staff walked me to the bathing area. I then undressed and kept my clothes in a shelve, of course I’ve got no photos of the wet area, I mean people are naked… duh! LOL!

The Men’s area has two pools. One has water jets that are really relaxing. The wet area isn’t that huge so it can be crowded specially on weekends and holidays so always check first before you commit. That applies to any spa that you go to. Their second pool in the men’s wet area is the hot tub, and when I say hot -it really is hot. It takes some time to adjust to the pool’s temperature, but once you get comfortable it’s just gonna be heaven.

 photo from sakuraoka website

How to get to Sakuraoka Hot Springs

  1. Take the MRT and get off at the Shipai Station in the red line.
  2. Take any of the buses 508, 535, 536 or 612
  3. Get off at Xing Yi Lu San bus stop and walk down Lane 300 take the road down hill on where the road forks. The spa is on the right side.
  4. Fare is NT$ 15

You can always take a cab either from Shipai or Xin Beitou station, costs around NT$ 150.

 

For someone comfortable in public bathing like me, this was one of the best that I’ve experience, comparing to what I’ve experienced around Asia (note: haven’t been to Japan though). Soaking for hours while staring at the forest with the Taipei 101 emerging like its one of the trees there was just relaxing. Honestly, I’ve never felt so much peace of mind ever than how I’ve had while I soak in the tub. It felt like it was just me, the tub and nature communing. Not a single negative thought came across my head.

I’ve also heard that there’s another Hot Spring spa in the area that’s better (there’s actually a lot of hot spring spa in that area including a gay spa so be careful if you don’t want to end up in one like me, LOL!) called Emperor Spa. But that’s for another visit. If you haven’t done public bathing the Japanese way, I strongly suggest you do. You’ll appreciate your body a lot more and it will feel very liberating. It will make you think, why have I been embarrassed on doing this; there’s nothing to it really!

 

 

 

Best Free Tours In Taipei
