The idea about backpacking in Cambodia happened exactly a year ago while i was at my cousin's birthday party on 29 September 2015. I still remember, i didnt even knew how to spell the word Angkor Wat! As months pass and my national service comes to an end, i started to find out more about the country using YouTube and researching it using Google and Guidebooks. From there, i was able to get hold of small bits of information from every book or information i came across.
About 3 months before the trip, i chanced upon a offer for discounted travel via Jetstar, which gave me largely discounted price to travel.
From there I gave myself about 1 month to decide on the accommodation, where it was based on comfort, cost and user reviews.
As a consistent user of TripAdvisor and Agoda, I relied on it to give me accurate analysis on the accommodation I chose before booking it. In planning wise, I pre planned things to do - Financials and the trips essential items to travel. Important Documents were backup to the cloud and available over print and digital formats. The plan was being foolproof, and being prepared in event of any emergency.
A week before the trip begins, I begin preparations for the trip. Preparations include changing money, packing my bag and setting aside expenses.
So what you're seeing here is a detailed report of my thought process before the fun begins. Check back soon for when the fun begins! ✌️
