The next day in Cambodia included a tour of the floating villages. It was so strange to think about people living their entire life on a river; rowing to school and to the market without any of the luxuries of the modern society I am accustomed to. While in the floating village, we also went on a tour of the mangroves and visited the village school. Back in Siem Reap, we spent the rest of the day shopping the markets, eating dinner and ice cream and buying $10 bus tickets to Bangkok.
At 8:00 am our bus left for Bangkok. After too many rest stops, a two hour border crossing into Thailand, switching from a Bus to a van (and right side driving to left side driving), speeding through the Thai countryside and a solid hour in Bangkok traffic we arrived to our hostel at 7:00 pm.
Bangkok was a busy city, with a lot of cheap shopping and delicious cheap food. We spent time shopping at some malls, visiting some Buddhist temples (getting there by boat to beat the traffic), getting traditional thai massages, eating Pad Thai on the street and visiting the famous backpacker hub: Khao San street.

The trip wrapped up with spending a night in the Bangkok airport and flying back to Singapore. I still love Singapore the most and I'm so excited for my parents to visit me next week!
