Srey Koulen Restaurant, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Our first full day in Cambodia was spent hiking through the jungle, up a hill to Kbal Spean or the ‘River of a Thousand Lingas’.

This magnificent spot is home to a sacred river that gushes over a river bed into which thousands of Lord Shiva’s Lingas have been carved and other deities have been carved.

On our way back we stopped of for a much need break at a restaurant called a Srey Koulen, a typical tourist trap type spot which served decent enough Khmer cuisine.

This restaurant is located in the Banteay Srey Village which is close to the beautiful temples of Banteay Srei and Banteay Samre.

There is nothing more refreshing than drinking a fresh coconut water after a tiring day or trekking and sightseeing.
