Pissa Italiana – Siem Reap

"The wood-fired oven was producing a fair amount of both heat and smoke, so we hesitated to sit down there. Fortunately they've got tables out at the back, in a little alleyway running parallel to Bar Street.

The Temples of Angkor

"The entrance to the complex is controlled by a big tollbooth of the sort you get on motorway toll roads, bridges and tunnels in the UK. It costs $20 for a day pass, although you can save money by getting a three-day or week photo pass if you're keen to explore the whole place in depth.
