Siem Reap, 6 Days 5 Nights Educational Trip


Gosh, Malaysia Airlines messed up our holiday! Our flight KLIA-Siem Reap, MH764, 29 Dec 2011 , Siem Reap-KLIA, MH765, 3 Jan 2012 was rescheduled/delayed 24 hrs without notification ..... no email, no phone call, no sms, nothing!!!

I was lucky enough THOUGH, trying to check-in online 48 hours before departure, and that, to my surprice our flight schedule changed! HHmmm , it was like a bomb, my head was blank, then kelam kabut...calling and emailing here and there, the customer service officer cannot even tell us the reason of the changed! Their service is really 'memalukan'.

The children got to miss the first day of school, thought of cancelling the trip..... BUT.... I do not want them to be disappointed....


OHHhh, I have had enough of that....here you are,

Tips:
Clean and delicious local food at Golden Temple Villa with reasonable/cheap price and nice atmosphere. However, stay is not recommended. The tap water smells bad.
Quiet stay at Palm Village with unique Khmer-styled palm wood bungalows. Food not as good as Golden Temple Villa.
