The Borann L'Auberge Des Temples Hotel

The Borann L'Auberge Des Temples Hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Located only about 10 minutes' walk from other major hotels, this nicely spare hotel is popular among European travelers.

Breakfast is included. The pineapple juice has a strong, pulpy texture, as if the outer core has been blended as well.

Jams, butter, and salt and pepper.

Poolside tables.

The anti-mosquito spray was slightly unsettling to watch -- and smell, as it seeped inside our rooms.

Found a small frog in the courtyard.

The bathroom, which has a sink in one corner and a toilet to the left. It took me a day to figure out how to make hot water come out, but I quite appreciated how spacious the room was. The body soap and shampoo are locally produced, and very good.

The big vase was filled with water to pour over your head when you shower. I don't know if this gecko was startled and fell in, but it rather valiantly swam with its head above water for a good five minutes before I fished it out. Every now and then, it would try and scramble out, giving the surreal impression that it could walk on water.
