Free air trip

Pssst… want a free air trip to almost anywhere? All you have to do is score a hole in one on Angkor Golf Resort’s hole 17, an attractive par 3 which has already yielded four hole in ones.

The hole in one prize is being sponsored by the partnership between the two national carriers, Cambodia Angkor Air and Vietnam Airlines.
Anyone scoring a hole in one will win a free return trip on any flight to any destination in the world served by the two airlines.

Cambodia Angkor Air’s CEO said the promotion highlights the two airlines’ “commitment to promote Siem Reap as a world class golf destination”.

There’s only one small hitch, as Angkor Golf Resort’s manager Adam Robertson points out: “Getting a hole in one isn’t easy.”

Vale Justin

Many of Siem Reap’s expat community have been in mourning over the death of Briton Justin Davies, the 39-year-old owner of the Eden Guesthouse who was found dead in his room last Thursday, September 16.

Justin was cremated during a small and sombre ceremony at Wat Damnak on Thursday afternoon. He leaves behind a Khmer partner and an 11-month-old baby.

Despite the usual pernicious rumours around town about his death, he died of natural causes.

Jason’s death was initially confirmed by Jamie Rossiter, owner of the Sports Bar, opposite the Eden Guesthouse in The Alley.

Jamie said: “I was called in by the staff at Eden in the afternoon. They said that he had gone to bed the night before, but that he hadn’t got up. I found him and saw that he’d passed away in the night.

“He’d been visiting the doctor for some weeks now. He knew himself that he was sick and his friends knew that he wasn’t well. But he was very private about
his health.”
