Also for Fans of Lara Croft : Tomb Raider

Not too long ago, there existed three divas from Singapore. Clubber Diva, who loved having a wild time anywhere, Shopper Diva who loved procuring anything under the name of beauty and Greedy Diva who loved the art of degustation. One day, these three divas decided to go to Cambodia together and started planning for a wonderful diva-licious time there.They decided, upon their arrival, to go straight from the dusty roads of Siem Reap to the cool oasis of Grand Hotel D'Angkor. And they did. They had a sumptous buffet meal and an intimate soiree of a ballet once enjoyed by the Angkorian Kings of yore.Fortified by the experience, the divas charged forth and headed for an ancient city of stone temples. They spent 5 days looking at tombs, monuments and deciphered long-forgotten stories imprinted on stones. And they conquered it all and had a good time.

The Divas meet the Lonely Planet Ambassador

Now, along the way, Shopper Diva and Greedy Diva lucked out and met the grand ambassador of a worldwide book cult called the Lonely Planet. They paid their respects to him and he , in return gave them permission to take a photograph with him. This sent the divas to seventh heaven and they bragged about it the whole day to everyone they met. To read more about it, go to the Angkor Wat page

The Divas' Idol and Goddess

Above it all, all three divas visited all the film sites that once graced the High Goddess of Adventure, Lara Croft. It gave them a real high to know that great adventure can be had at Angkor, with or without dancing stone monkeys..To check out the filming sites, click my 'to do' page.
