It was also my first experience of visa on arrival which went without a hitch at Bangkok! Tourism Authority of Thailand was quite gracio...

The Road Trip- Poipet Siem Reap

By Mridula Dwivedi October 25, 2013 16 Comments , , ,

I have long given up trying to click pictures from a moving bus. I mean I do click a few when I see beautiful landscape but without much hope. Most of them get blurred. My road trip from Poipet-Siem Reap was an exception. Poipet is on the Thailand-Cambodia border and popular for road crossing. The sky was full of wh...

The Smiling Faces of Bayon- The Center of Angkor Thom, Camboida

By Mridula Dwivedi September 28, 2013 24 Comments , , , , ,

Out of nowhere the rain started falling heavily as we were nearing Angkor. My heart sank, I have had way too much of rain on many of my trips this year. I was left wondering if I would see Angkor in pouring rain! It was not what I wanted. Heavy rains mean the camera stays in the bag and the umbrella comes out. I did...

Sunrise at Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia

By Mridula Dwivedi September 27, 2013 25 Comments , ,

After strolling through the Pub Street and the Night Market I managed to hit the bed by mid night. When the alarm went at 4.30 am the next day in spite of being disoriented I did not want to fling the cell phone against the wall. You see, I was going to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat. I had only one night at Siem R...

What do you do when you see pretty flowers on your dining table? When I saw the bunch that is featuring below we started a discussion, whether the lotus flowers were real or not! I mean have you seen a lotus flower arrangement like this before? I had not, for sure. Are These Lotus Flowers for Real? My first questi...

The Pub Street and the Night Market, Siem Reap, Cambodia

By Mridula Dwivedi September 23, 2013 22 Comments , , ,

After the glittering dance performance (about which you can read here) at Siem Reap we were dropped back to our hotel, Sokha Angkor Resort which is a mighty fine hotel. It was surely not beyond 9.00 pm. We had just one night at Siem Reap so we wanted to cram in as much as we could. A group of us decided to head out ...

The scene was like this- we were be...

I am not much of a spa or pedicure, manicure person. I have never had a facial in my life till date. Thailand and Cambodia are full of massage parlors but I was not really looking for a massage. I have been to a few spas in the course of my travels but I really do not seek them out. We had one night in Cambodia a...

Dress Code for Women in Cambodia

By Mridula Dwivedi September 16, 2013 29 Comments , , , , , ,

I usually search for the dress code when I am about to visit a new country. Being from India I cannot go really wrong as we are conservative in our dressing sense. But the advice I see often is done without any photos. I have now made it a habit to do a post on the dress code myself after coming back from a new coun...

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quite my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
