Best Travel Adventure: Laid-back Life In Cambodia | Clozette

Cambodia has so many things to offer— delicious cuisine, kind-hearted people, well-preserved culture, and a very relaxing travel destination. It was a two-day adventure with my siblings last June 14-15, 2015, and nothing can compare the experience when you travel with your family.




Upon arrival at Siem Reap International Airport, I was stunned by its simplicity; it reflects how simple Cambodians' lives are. Since we arrived late in the afternoon, we took some rest first at the hotel and spent the night at the Pub Street and Night Market. We had dinner at Khmer Family Restaurant, the restaurant also offers other Asian fusion cuisine, but we went there to taste their local food. There were lots of shake stalls too along Pub Street, and we capped-off the day with a refreshing mixed-shake for only USD1.


We woke up early on the second day for the temple hopping. Our first stop was the famous Angkor Wat. I was totally in awe when I saw the sun slowly radiating the worlds’ largest and greatest temple, every detail in the temple was made and carved intricately. We have also visited other temples; one of those was Ta Prohm where Angelina Jolie shot for the film, Tomb Raider. In the evening we watched a cultural show, where it represents classical Khmer culture. 







Two days may have been too short to explore the country, but this is my best travel adventure so far. I could not have any experience being in a place where almost everyone is kind, accommodating, and would make you feel at home. We did not even have any trouble communicating with the locals as they could speak-well in English. If I want to be away again from the hustle and bustle of the city, Cambodia is surely my place to be.

If there's one pair of shoes you can wear for extreme comfort what would it be? Sneakers, of course! And for the past week, the fashion community has been showing it some love as more and more Clozetters have been wearing their sneakers with their outfits. And take note, we didn't just spot sporty looks, we also saw edgy, preppy, and even feminine styles!


Get the sneaker-fever with these top 5 looks that made it to our OOTD Roundup this week!


--------------------------


AngelAndrade

How about a classy look while wearing sneakers? Pull off this look just like how Clozetter AngelAdrade did--with a classy pair of white Nike sneakers and a black dress coat. It looks crisp and effortlessly chic!

Viviannvee

(clozette.co/Viviannvee)




Silver may not be the obvious colour choice for your sneaker but Star Clozetter Viviannvee made it work. The key is to balance it out with basic pieces for it to be the star of the show without being too loud. In this case, she made the look even more creative by wearing a comic, graphic top and a silver backpack to match her shoes. 



auracharisse

(clozette.co/auracharisse)




There are three things your top needs to sport a preppy look: it should be buttoned-up, printed, and tucked in. That's why Star Clozetter auracharisse's look is an A+ preppy look--with her white sneakers sealing the deal perfectly. 



pupuren

Who knew a flower necklace, maxi skirt, and abstract print shoes would look good together? And despite the "chaotic" combination, Start Clozetter pupuren's OOTD shot seems so calm and serene. So yes, clashing styles can co-exist in one look as long as you know which pieces to put together.  



christyfrisbee

For Clozette Ambassador christyfrisbee, dressing up casual-edgy is natural. This look is a great example of how to own a trend--making it work for you to express your personal style.
