Sneak Peek of My House in Siem Reap, Cambodia

After 2 long days of searching for the house (cycling around Siem Reap and asking people around, visiting 10 local houses and 4 flats in total), we have finally found the place of our dreams- 3 bedroom semi-detached house for me, Cez and Barbara (joining us very soon). Let’s have a look how we, tramps, are going to live for the next few months in the “Land of Smiles”.

Ladies and gentlemen, make yourself home… :)

The front door

Our corridor. I love the Cambodian masks hanging on the wall!

:)

Apart from the masks, we have also plenty of Cambodian pictures hanging on the walls all over the house.

My bedroom. It’s very modest and pretty big. I have a huge wardrobe in the corner, TV and make-up mirror.

Have a closer look.

That’s Barbara’s room. Hope the green colour will make her feel energetic and positive all the time :).

Cez’s working here right now until Barbara’s back.

Cez’s room (it was supposed to be our living room hehehe).

Our kitchen fully equipped with stove, fridge and water container. Our landlord makes sure we have everything we need.

Let’s look through the window.

There are adorable kids always playing outside our house.

We have lovely neighbours here.

And very funny :).

Our garden and the landlord- extremely hospitable and friendly lad!

Mini temple so we can pray to Buddha :).

Recycling place :).

Palm trees surrounding us!

It’s green, sunny and beautiful every day :).

The road is a nightmare though.

Mud’s everywhere.

But kids look like they don’t mind it :).

Green, green, everywhere’s green!

And the flowers I water on a regular basis to keep our house flowery.

I have been over the moon since moving in. I wake up in the morning and make a breakfast in the garden enjoying the beautiful weather (unless it rains). Love Siem Reap, so happy to be living here <3.

From now on, I will be sharing my work and travel experience in Cambodia living like a local and tramp.

Stay tuned.

  • Love that your neighbors seem delightful… I constantly have a “I can’t believe how nice people are here” moment when I’m sitting on my balcony in Phnom Penh and my neighbors are smiling and waving to me! Definitely the best when it happens while I’m skyping my parents are they’re like “Who are you waving to!?”
    Your whole setup looks awesome – seems like you’ve picked a beauty of a place. Congrats!

    • Yeah, that’s so true. Cambodian people are so polite and friendly. Cambodia is indeed the “Land of Smiles”. I’m making myself home in Siem Reap, best place I’ve ever lived in. Planning to stay here longer than I thought. How’s Phnom Penh? I passed by when heading to Siem Reap but I will be back there in a month to extend my Visa. We might meet. Let me know if you come to Siem Reap, would be my pleasure to host you. Enjoy!!

  • I love seeing the interiors of homes in other countries. It’s so interesting to see how people live! This looks like a lovely home…I could easily cope with living there, especially with a tropical climate! Makes me wonder how I’m going to make it through another UK winter ;)

    • We love the house as well and the weather isn’t that great at the moment. It keeps raining every day. I’m going home to Poland for Christmas and guess what… it’s freezing there as well so welcome to the club :)
