Today we started our 2-day tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Angkor Archaelogical Park and it was fantastic. Our private guide, Tea, picked us up about 8:20 (20 minutes late because I gave him the wrong hotel address 🙁 ) and we spent all day visiting the Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom sites.
As usual, I’m pressed for time (and energy) so I’ll just add a couple of the best photos and tell you that our guide is great, the scenery even better and we’ve also been really enjoying the Cambodian food. Dinner last night and lunch today were both really tasty. We returned to the hotel about 3:20pm for a rest and Tea will pick us up at 7:30pm tonight because we expressed interest in trying some local foods. We look forward to the adventure!
Tomorrow we start at 6am – earlier is better to avoid the crowds and the heat – and we’ll visit the “Tomb Raider” temple (not sure what that means, yet) – we’ll return to to the hotel about 10:30am for a mid-day rest, then head out mid-afternoon for more adventures.
