We arrived on Sunday the 8th and shall spend three nights here visiting the many temples mostly built in the 12th century
We’re staying at this charming little hotel called le Chanthou. Our first day here we all booked a massage and pedicure, we sure felt like we deserved it and you can’t beat the price of 20$ for a massage!
The sunrise over Siem Reap on our first morning!
Our amazing guide Haan was a true historian. We were blessed to have him. He got us into the back gate of Angkor Wat and there were No lines!! That’s amazing in itself . His driver took very good care of us making sure we stayed cool with a cold lavender towel every time we finished viewing a temple
This video tells the story of all the temples and beautiful art work we’ve seen.
My favorites were Bayon because of the fact that each tower had the face of a king sculpted on each side. There are 18 towers standing today out of the original 37, and of course Angkor Wat, amongst the at least 12 temples we saw!
We met Jimmy while visiting Ta Keo temple and he took beautiful photos of us!Meditating In Ta Keo temple
Nose to nose with a King at Bayon temple
These trees are massive and destroyed many temple, note how small we are next to it!
Getting sticky rice in bamboo shoots, on the road, delicious!
We relaxed by the pool before we left and planned our next adventure to who know where! Cat and I have visited 6 countries together over the last 3 years.
Time to say good by and how befitting is it to leave for the airport in a tuk tuk!!
