I personally adore involving the gourmet moments in our trips.What about you, food matters much when you’re traveling or it’s not really your priority?Share with us at the comment below!💙
The first cinema of Bangkok was open on the 1960’s and still working nowadays.
Well located, vintage looking and super cheap; as convenient as it can be for those spending a long time or living in town.
The ceiling is specially beautiful, but even the uniforms the doorman wears are something that always catch my attention.
There’s two separated buildings that merged into one cinema, you can buy the tickets in both locations.
They’re 3 min walking distance from each other, if going for the looks Scala is your pick.

Part 4 is here to unveil more of our incredible journey in Siem Reap.
Prepare your hearts to absorb all the beauty this fantastic city has to give!
Something different happened in Southeast Asia, I don’t know what it was, but everyone is heart warming nice!
Not a little bit; huge amounts of kindness, honesty, love, respect, compassion, contentment, and the list goes on and on.
We most definitely have something to learn with these people.
Having the opportunity to appreciate their culture and their environment is something i’m grateful for. It’s an experience that here is complete, because people count, more than you think about when planning a trip.
I’m not saying everyone is perfect, but the majority of people are being consistent on giving their best and that’s impressive and of course welcoming.
I admire the grace, smiles and energy the place emanates.
Oh, The Energy
The mix of everything is mesmerizing.
There’s this energy that is hard not to feel. You don’t have to be a person that pays attention to this kind of stuff to get that something is going on in the air around here.
I am not sure how to explain it, it’s surreal, like an elevated dimension. Something you will just understand by feeling it.
If you like/want give it a go/practice meditation make sure to try some out here, sometimes is easy to let such things pass when we are entertained with the changes on the exterior world.
Exotic flavorful dishes all around and for all budgets.
Vegans don’t need to worry at all, even in between the temples, fresh fruits are available at small stands along the pathway and the restaurants offers traditional dishes that can be ordered without meat such as the recommended vegetable curry.
Street sellers with eye-catching unfamiliar fruits tasting like “i will never leave” can be found all around town.
Street food talking, try out some savory coconut rice cakes and fresh cane juice.
Here the restaurants we visited at the videos:
Vegetarian Restaurant, Vegan Friendly
Address: Wat Bo Rd, Siem Reap*
Vegetarian Restaurant, Vegan friendly
Address: The Passage, Pub Street Area, Siem Reap*
*They can be a little more complicated than usual to find due the lack of numeration.
Angkor Complex Restaurants
During the day while visiting the temple complex we ate at the restaurants around them.
There’s many distributed on the park, most of them will have no problems adjusting the dishes to be vegan.😄
Plenty of snack carts can be found around the city, make sure to try some, it’s worthy!😋
High end hotels are available but it’s a simple city.
If night markets, ruins, exotic food and alike enchants you, way to go.
But if you’re looking for golden handles on expensive looking modern streets with fancy shopping malls, not for you.
