This page is automatically created by the automated computer text translator, and originally written in Russian (Переведено сервисом «Яндекс.Переводчик»). The original version of this page in Russian is located here. We are apologize for any possible inaccurate and incorrect translation of certain phrases and expressions below.

The entire trip was arranged completely by yourself.

The tickets I bought through the Internet on the website of Aeroflot (EKB-MSK-EKB) and Emirates (GMT-Dubai-BKK-Dubai-Moscow time) by telephone to the Israeli transport company TAL Aviation (air pass (ticket to Asia) on Bangkok Airways BKK-Siem reap -BKK-Samui -BPC).

Excursions-transfers ordered through the Internet.

Air passes through Asia (it can only be bought outside of Thailand in Russia I found only one firm that was able to do everything quickly - booked for a 15 min phone call) cost us 24 000,00 for 2 people, which was cheaper than standard tickets to 300px.

Guide called Kimli (lived 5 years in Russia - very good Russian language)

Plan to stay in Cambodia (Rip) was like this (in brackets the price is for 4 people with a guide and car for the day)

28.09.2009 - meeting at the airport. Transfer to the hotel. The excursion starts at the middle temple (80$) Tours started at the South Gate of Angkor Thom, then - the complex of Bayon, the temples of Baphuon and the Phimeanakas, Terraces of Elephants and Leper King. After lunch myself Angkor Wat. Next - getting to the temple on mount Bakheng (I was not raised) to admire the sunset over the ancient city. This is the program for the temples of the Angkor period, located close to the city.

29.09.2009 - the second day tour of middle temple (80$) Visited one of the most famous temples is TA Prohm, overgrown by jungle, the temple of Banteay kdey, Srah srang or the Royal Baths, the temples, the twin of Thomanon and Chow SAI Tevoda. After lunch, the temples of the Great Circle that represents Khmer architecture at its Prime. This is Nick Pen, Pre RUP, one of the Khan, TA Som and some other temples-temples-temples.

30.09.2009 - Waterfall + Banteay SREI, Samre, Cravant (140$). All the expropriations had to be cancelled (the money for them, we partially Gimli back, but I don't remember how much, something around 80$, because it took us only 14 hours) due to the fact that 29.09.2009 in Cambodia came the echoes of Vietnam a Typhoon that killed in Vietnam 39. This day went to Banteay SREI and Cambodian village.

Independently visited the local market, several shops.

01.10.2009 - solved with the guide in place. Decided not to go, because for the previous 2 days the legs were erased from ear to ear, and the head just did not take the abundance of information. Went to a few stores.

Gimli with driver and ran into the airport.

Total: 300 for the program.

The hotel Angkor Holiday 3*: the cost to bed and Breakfast everywhere, in TF, on the hotel's website, it turned out that the reception was 110$ on Agoda, it was sold for$ 45. Everyone was asking for 100% advance payment. And Kimli we bid$ 33 per night * 2 rooms * 3 nights = 198$ free of charge + bonus 1 dinner in the hotel restaurant (I never thought that "bonuses" can be SUCH and fed us like pigs before slaughter) in any convenient night for us. I should say that in addition to the reasonable prices and the bonus of dinner was another surpryz early (at 09.30) free check in at the hotel.

Only: excursion tours + hotel (with Breakfast) for 4 turned out to 498$.

One of the sites I read saying that only after a visit to Siem reap of Riapa was considered correct by 100% - "After the 3rd temple begin to understand that all churches are confused in the head and the abundance of information received exceeds the possible amount to digest and remember".

I have to say that I liked Bayonne. Next place "distribute" as: Angkor Wat, TA Prohm, Nick Peto (temple of pharmacy, temple, clinic).

Interesting fact: in Cambodia, we flew on a plane with James Belushi (played in the movie "K-9: Canine working")

If you mean "counterfeit", then Yes, there is a problem. Just look at the quality of the bottles, labels, etc., or buy a cheap local. And so no guarantees there. But on the other hand, theoretically it is safe, because instead of the normal foreign can fill cheap local rice moonshine, and not technical alcohol from the impurities of methyl alcohol production, as in the more developed industrial countries. ...
