I still have some photos from Cambodia that I still haven't posted! Will just split it into 2 posts since it's kinda photo heavy:) Anyway, on our last day in Seam Reap, we decided to kill time by spending it inside the Silk Farm and the Cultural Village. Last few hours well spent! Here are photos from the farm!:)
From event shirt, Cheap Monday jeans, Bangkok blazer, SM Surplus flats
Wearing some of my top travel essentials! White shirt, denim jeans, blazer, sunnies, watch and pretty ballet flats. Had to take off the blazer though when we went to Cultural Center coz it was sauna hot there. :(
Just had to take more outfit shots when I came across this little place inside the Cultural Center...

After the tour we went inside the souvenir shop. So fancy the things sold inside! If you're fond of silk everything, YOU MUST GO HERE. I wanted to buy a silk scarf but Mich said wag na coz burara daw ako. Weh. Haha. So if you're in Siam Reap, Cambodia, iavail niyo na this tour. It's free anyway, very educational pa!:)
after the tour, we chilled at the ice cream shop outside
free cold towel! thank you kuya! hehe
Took us 2 hours to tour the place and chill for a bit:) Afterwards, we headed to the Cultural Center where Mich and I had so much fun. Photos on my next post! Toodles!:)
