SIEM REAP-January 8-19, 2014

January 8, 2014

    We take the free shuttle from our hotel to the airport.  Fingers crossed we will be in Siem Reap tonight!!  Flight takes off as scheduled.  I breathe a sigh of relief and finally start to relax.  I have received an e-mail from Asiana that our bags have been in SR since Jan. 6th and a rep from the airline will be waiting for us in SR to handle the paperwork to retrieve them.
We are finally on our way to Siem Reap.

Our flt. to SR leaving 6:45 pm

Our Air China plane
     The flight is fine.  Good service, ok movies, and not too bad food.  I honestly don't remember what I watched or ate!  We arrive in SR on time.  I have our passport size pics and two USD $20 bills.  We see the Asiana rep who waits for us to get our passports stamped with the visa.  This process takes about 5 minutes or so.  The rep takes us to an office and there I see our bags!!  We complete the paperwork, sign our names in several places several times, thank the rep and quickly find a car to take us to our hotel.  Cost $7.  Before leaving the airport I pick up some tourist pamphlets for SR.
     We arrive at our hotel ROYAL ANGKOR RESORT & SPA and there's several staff waiting to welcome us (I had been e-mailing the hotel apprising them of our travel woes as we were supposed to check in on Jan. 5th).  A cold towel and a refreshing drink.  Then we are escorted to our room, #411.  All I want to do is sleep.  I will unpack tomorrow.
