Six Scenic Flight Tours Around the World

One of the best ways to see a new city (or an old one) is from above. And I don’t mean staring through your tiny circular window as the wheels drop over a new destination. I mean preferably with the wind in your face soaring over the best natural and manmade wonders your location has to offer. After trying a few flying adventures, we can definitively say this one of our favorite types of exploration. You can gain a new perspective from the air: an improved sense of scale and...

Countryside Motorbike Tour In Siem Reap, Cambodia

Cambodia is a country rich with culture and historic terrain begging for explorers to leave the tourist centers and venture out into the countryside. Aside from visiting the famous Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, we knew we wanted to go off the beaten path to see what life is like for most Cambodians in the countryside. With Tinggly, a company that facilitates giving the gift of travel, we took a motorbike tour through remote neighborhoods down dirt roads and got to meet the locals. If you’ve ever been stuck with a...

Borei Angkor Resort And Spa Review

As soon as we walked into the lobby of the Borei Angkor Resort and Spa, we felt close to the culture and the enormous scale of historic Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Huge blocks the size of boulders make up the walls reaching up to a soaring ceiling, and the staff wear traditional Khmer attire. Despite the colossal aesthetic, we were greeted warmly and invited to take a seat on a comfortable sofa. The staff were all insistent on asking our names and telling us their own, always pointing at their...

La Rose Suites Phnom Penh Review

La Rose Suites in Phnom Penh echoes the spa-like design of its sister property La Rose Boutique Hotel, but with five-star facilities. The hotel is hidden behind a high wall that shelters the pool and lounge area from the road. We entered through a tunnel of vines and twinkling lights and walked into the dimly lit lobby. Staff met us at the entrance to take our bags and urged us to take a seat. The hotel is in a convenient location to explore popular spots like the Royal Palace and Wat...

Lotus Blanc Resort Siem Reap Review

The Lotus Blanc Resort in Siem Reap is set back from the busy road that runs in front of it, accented by calming lotus ponds and tropical plants. This boutique hotel is a peaceful stylish accommodation conveniently located near Angkor Historic Park. We were greeted immediately upon arrival and led to a comfortable seating area while our reservation was confirmed and our room was readied. The front desk staff were very friendly and gave us a quick tour of the grounds before leading us up to our suite. [gallery type="rectangular" ids="4278,4275"] The...

Heritage Suites, a small boutique hotel tucked away in a quiet residential section of Siem Reap, Cambodia, is an ideal escape from the dusty city after a day of exploring the famous Angkor temples.

La Rose Boutique Hotel Review

La Rose Boutique Hotel and Spa in Phnom Penh is a true boutique hotel with only 10 rooms. The hotel is on a quiet stretch of the main road leading away from Independence Monument. We were greeted with smiles and treated to a tasty welcome drink as we confirmed our itinerary and spa reservations at check in. Throughout our stay, the staff made it clear they were available for our every request and made sure to make us feel at home in Cambodia. The Hotel is in a great location, a...
