Up at 9am to get "whore" to get me to Siem Reap Airport.After fighting with him for last 3 days about cost of 4 days Tuk Tuk round temples,settled on $35 but only if he dropped me at the airport included in the price! Arrived at tiny airport in plenty of time...until check in-"sorry sir,you have to pay $30 as your bag is over 15kilos!"
So i take out 4 books,still $16 dollars and with no money on me ask where the nearest ATM is,5minute walk to other end of the airport-"are there any other charges i have to pay?" No Sir just your luggage.So get to the bank,who charge me $5 just to withdraw against my Visa card and trudge back to the check in desk.Hand over the money and continue to departures,where I get asked to Pay $25 departure tax!!!So back to the money place all over again to withdraw yet more money with another $5 charge!Managed to sweet talk the manager into letting me have second one with no charge explaining the desk told me no more charges and finally board the plane for K.L
The bumpiest flight ever with really bad turbulence for 2hours,but finally back in Kuala Lumpur-for the 3rd time! Getting an expert now on routes and trains and after 1 1/2hours,jumped on skybus to K.L Central,then monorail to Masijk Jamek and onto Plaza Rakyat and into 4th floor Pudu hostel,sharing with 3women for 12rm a night in dormitary,woo hoo!Got talking to Alicia from Germany soon as I arrived and arranged to go out to the bars that night,watched the world cup final after paying 3quid a bottle in some of the bars!The streets were crazy,theyd closed off the whole main road through the golden triangle part of the city and were having a carnival,with big screens,live bands and games all the way,couldnt believe it!just thought imagine if they actually were in it or even had a team themselves!
