Siem Reap Trip Santai 2016 (2) - Sightseeing Lagi...

Selepas dari Killing Fields tadi, akak ke Senteurs d’Angkor Workshop pula. Tempat ni pun akak tak pernah sampai lagi... jom tengok apa yang ada di sana.

Senteurs d'Angkor Workshop

What to experience?

The moment you walk into our Senteurs d’Angkor shop you are immediately struck by an explosion of the senses with heady aromas floating from every corner. It ‘s can be difficult to choose which kind of scent you prefer so you can start with an everyday indulgence by trying our coconut oil-based handmade soaps. Available in a variety of scents including jasmine, orchid, cinnamon, lemongrass, green tea, mango. lotus and orange, our soaps are all made by hand, using traditional techniques and extracts derived exclusively from plant oils and 100 % natural ingredients..

Afford yourself some pampering, some “me time” with our delicately perfumed massage oils, body creams, body scrubs and bath salts, to ease the ache and pains of visiting the temples and send the body into a state of blissful calm.

For scents of a more aromatic kind, tease your taste buds with our fine selection of Cambodian spices including authentic Khmer curry, Lok lak, Satay, lemongrass, cinnamon, chilli and the famous Kampot pepper.

For an over the top indulgence, intoxicate your senses with the silky delight of our mango jam, the rich aroma of our flavoured tea and coffee from Ratanakiri, or the potent rice alcohol (brandy) from Siem Reap.

For those wanting to see more of what goes into making the scents and colours of Senteurs d’Angkor products, visit our workshop. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a wide variety of brightly-coloured sugar palm leaves drying in the sun. See the weavers producing the lovely boxes that carry all of your purchases home. Then you can see how our natural soaps, moisturising creams, scented balms and aromatic candles are made. From there, move on to discover the different steps in the preparation of spices (Kampot pepper, lemongrass, ginger, chilli) and the mixture of subtle combinations which make traditional Khmer curry spice, satay and lok-lak.

How does it help?

Senteurs d’Angkor prides itself on sourcing all of its products in Cambodia, from our raw ingredients to our packaging materials, which is not easy task. In line with our philosophy of ‘home-sourcing’, most of our packaging comes from the sugar palm tree, an abundant, natural and recyclable resource in Cambodia..

This philosophy ensures that jobs and incomes stay within Cambodia, helping to address the country’s poverty and reduce dependence on imports. We use the finest raw ingredients sourced from all over the country.

We employ 110 people and provide regular work to another 100 people, mostly women from the rural area, 10% of the workshop staff are handicapped, and all benefit from good work conditions (salary, profit-sharing, insurance, working environment…)

2 gambar ni akak ambil dari Google...


Ini ialah kedainya. Oopppssss.. tak leh ambik gambar kat dalam ye..

Akak cuma beli 2 ketul sabun ni je... saja buat souvenir :))
usd2.5 each

Ok, dah penat sightseeing untuk hari ni, rasa dah lapar pulak.. 
nak pergi makanlah..

Alhamdulillah, mmm.. sedap masakannya di sini.. pedas, 
kena dengan selera akak... 
soup sour daging dan ikan goreng sambal.

Semasa bersembang dengan beberapa orang kenalan di sini waktu makan tadi, mereka beritau yang harga tiket masuk ke Angkor Wat tu akan naik bulan februari 2017. Woww.. mahalnya, akan naik ke usd37 ! What? Sedangkan harga sekarang ni usd20. Ini bermakna kenaikannya hampir double! isshh..isshh... susahlah pelancong nak masuk situ, jawabnya.. pikir banyak kali..

So, pada mulanya akak tak berniat pun untuk pergi ke Angkor Wat lagi pada trip kali ini sebab dah pernah masuk sebanyak 2 atau 3 kali semasa trip yang lepas (lupa dah). Tapi, memandangkan harganya akan melambung naik tu, jadi akak pun decide untuk masuk buat kali yang terakhir..esok.

Ok lah, akak nak balik berehat ye.. 

esok pagi insyaAllah nak ke Lotus Farm
