Siem Reap - Singapore Airport - Friday, 10 February 2017

Bye bye Cambodia

sunny 38 °C

Great sleep last night and for the first time in a long time, we woke up naturally, without having to worry about setting the alarm. All packed, now going for a late breakfast.

We checked out a bit early and went down to say goodbye to David and Margaret and Peter and Yvonne who are continuing on to Laos. Then our lovely black limo arrived and we had a smooth 15 minute ride to the airport.

Check in, immigration and security were a breeze and now we are sitting in the Silk Air lounge waiting to board our flight. Ingrid and Elfie weren't allowed to come in as our guests, but we will try again in Singapore as we are there for six hours.

I glanced up at the departure board and noticed our flight was boarding but it was a long time before the flight was due to go so we wandered into the terminal to find Elfi and Ingrid, who had noticed the boarding sign too, but weren't in a hurry. So we ambled to Gate 5 and suddenly found ourselves being ushered onto the tarmac and into the plane. Gosh, we thought, we nearly missed the flight! But the boarding process seemed to confuse a lot of other people too as they drifted onto the plane in dribs and drabs. Finally, when everyone was on board, we took off, 11 minutes before it was due to leave!!

Bye bye Siem Reap.

The flight to Singapore was two hours and we were served a three course meal. Pity I wasn't hungry. Dozed and read my book and before we knew it we landed in Singapore.

We now have a six hour wait so we went up to the SilverKris Business Class Lounge and asked if Elfi and Ingrid could come in too. I am allowed one guest on my Platnium Virgin Card but the girl at the desk was SO nice and let both of them in.
