It has been close to half a year of working non-stop without a break, so my husband and I decided to go on a short getaway to Siem Reap, Cambodia. In all, we spent 4D3N there, and our total expenses came up to about $600 per person for the entire trip.

Here’s a quick breakdown:

Item Cost
Flight (Jetstar) $290
Accomodation $80 for 3 nights
Travel insurance (FWD) $14.40
Tour – Angkor Wat $17 (tour) + $48 (entrance fee)
Tour- Fishing Village $25
War Museum $6.50 admission
Food $60 (approx. $15/day)
Transport (by tuktuk) $34
Shopping & others $25
TOTAL per person $600


Flight tickets
