A tuk tuk took us to our hotel - the Golden Banana, and it was a good thing we had heard about the warnings of a scam with tuk tuk drivers taking unsuspecting customers to a place other than what they had requested and getting commissions from the vendors whose sites they take these new customers...because our driver tried that with us and Shannon was very firm and insisted many times that he take us to the hotel immediately...yeah Shannon!

Siem Reap is filled with international visitors and it is really fun to hear so many languages surrounding us. Our hotel room is especially nice with a beautiful balcony overlooking one of the three pools at the hotel compound. The Golden Banana will be reviewed in my overall reviews of the hotels we stayed in on this trip. the sights here are incredible and so I will just give you a glimpse of our last several days in Siem Reap...enjoy - bringing you food and travel from my table to yours...
