Aww!! Such an amazing blog, I can’t take my eyes off from that amazing pics. Would love to explore it soon!!
Hi! I just began reading your blog, and it’s amazing!! A friend and I are backpacking next year, and we are going to New Zealand, Australia, Thailand and Vietnam, and then we only have time for one more place, and we can’t find out whether we should go to Cambodia og Bali. I just read your posts about both Cambodia and Bali, and both places sound amazing. What place would you recommend? 🙂
Hey Pernille, thanks for the kind words 🙂 Sounds like you have an amazing trip planned! Honestly, I think you’ll love both Bali and Cambodia, so you can’t really go wrong. They both have beautiful people and landscapes. Here are a couple pros/cons for both to consider:
+Hospitality is amazing and your stay will be very comfortable, from the food to hotels
+Culture is very vibrant and all around you
-Some of the main cities are very Westernized and are catered to tourists instead of feeling completely "authentic". You’ll have to search a little bit harder to find this. If you do go to Bali, I’d recommend reaching out to Ring A Bike Tours (We mentioned this company in some of our Bali posts, and we’d be happy to connect you with Ring 🙂 He’s amazing!)
+The people in Cambodia have been through a really rough couple decades, so by traveling here, your money will help support and rebuild their economy
+It’s easier to get "off the beaten path" and see how "real" Cambodians live. Siem Reap is very touristy, but outside of that city, you’ll really experience Cambodian life. The poverty can be a little hard to see at times.
-Transportation can be a bit uncomfortable and not always up to "Western standards", which could be a pro or con depending on how you look at it.
Hope that helps your decision. Keep us updated. We’d love to know where you end up choosing to go!
