Angkor Wat




Yesterday we visited the famous Angkor Temples where we spent about 6 hours in total. The most famous one, Angkor Wat, was the one we started with as early as 05.00 to be able to see the sunrise over the temple. Unfortunately it was pretty cloudy so we didn't see much of the sun until it was higher up in the sky.. It was still worth waking up early though, since the temperature was really nice compared to later in the day where it got extremely hot. 
We did the so called 'small circle' and hired a tuk tuk driver to take us around to the different temples, where he waited around for us until we were done and wanted to continue to the next temple. At 11:00 we were done with the circle and couldn't wait to get back to the hostel and jump into the pool. We paid the tuk tuk driver $15 and gave him a pineapple and an extra dollar in tip which he really appreciated.

The most impressive temple was definitely Angkor Wat. Besides that all the temples were pretty much the same to us (two girls not too interested in temples). It was definitely an interesting and fun day though, and I was more impressed by the temples than I thought I would be!

The rest of the day was spent in the pool with loud music playing and later in the evening in the sky bar. All in all this was probably the best day in Cambodia.
