I was asked about where my most memorable night’s sleep has been on my travels. There have been some incredible places that I have stayed around the world but nothing more magical to me than my time in Siem Reap, Cambodia. My mum and I stayed at the Angkor Howard Hotel in 2006 for that year’s Asian Mission Conference. While I had been to the neighboring country of Thailand before this was my very first time in Cambodia. From our first day to our last we were greeted and met with such hospitality and many smiles from the hotel staff. From our time in the hotel and out in the city I have never met a culture of people who have been so nice, friendly, and smile as much as the people of Cambodia.
The Angkor Howard hotel was a great location for our conference with spacious rooms for the lectures and guest speakers, an outside area for dining and entertaining, and an amazing pool where we witnessed a baptism of one of our convention’s attendees. While I awoke every morning well rested and excited about the day’s activities it was the food I most enjoyed at the Angkor Howard hotel. They had a wide selection of food boasting local fresh fruits and vegetables and I was in heaven eating the delicious Khmer cuisine. It was a great place to spend my first time in Cambodia and I know it will not be my last.
