Best Drunken Advice Ever

Best Drunken Advice Ever

by Jayanta
(Mumbai, India)

We were staying at the Raffles in Siem Reap and every night at bar we would run into this really drunk guy who just kept asking... Did you go to Beng Melea? You must go to Beng Melea. Finally after 3-4 such reminders we found ourselves with a free day. We hired a tuk tuk (USD $25 return) and went all the way to Beng Melea.


The ride itself was an interesting look at the Khmer countryside, especially after we took the turn off the highway to PP.

At Beng Melea we bumped into an old English gentleman who had spent many years in this area doing some non-profit work who sat us down on the roof of the temple and told us the stories of this and other temples- especially the Preah Vihear one.

On the way back our tuk tuk broke down, but the driver fixed it quite adeptly. One thing I realized that Khmers were actually very hardworking people. We thought that after having earned USD $20 for a day's work this driver would go buy booze and get smashed for the rest of the week. However, after dropping us he went and waited outside the hotel again for more work!

The timing of an excursion in NEW
by: Anonymous

The timing of an excursion in Germany's new government district should be wisely chosen. A rule of thumb: The best time for such a walk is early in the morning. And the closer it is to the weekend, the earlier it should be started. Such timing will save you a multitude of passersby and the loud music emanating from the speakers of a passing cruise ship on the River Spree.

One criticism of the constructivist approach is it caters to extroverted, group-oriented studnets, who tend to dominate and benefit from these teaching methods more than introverts, however, this assumes introverts aren't learning by observing. custom essay writing service

Beng Mealea
by: Peter G

Agree with you about Beng Mealea. When did you go there?
I was there last August in the wet season, and here is a link to some of my photos.

The country side was really nice and green in August. I was in Siem Reap in January this year, and would not got back again in that season. I didn't go to Beng Mealea in January, as my regular tuk tuk driver said the place was all brown and dry as its the dry season.

Recommend going from July to September .
