Day 16 – Siem Reap

Up at 4:30 for a 5:00 trip to Angkor Wot for sunrise. The crowds were building even at that time of day, but well worth the effort. As it turned out we didn’t have an overly spectacular sunrise, but Wow!

Once the sun was up – about 6:15 we headed into the wot. It’s hard to say what is most impressive about the place – the scale of it all or the fine detail. Every surface is covered in intricate, fine carving. Every surface.

We then headed back for breakfast, followed by a Khmer cooking class with 5 others in the group. Just like the cooking class in Vietnam, it involved a market tour, and just like in Vietnam it was lots of fun and delicious.

It was then back to the hotel for a short rest before heading off for drinks and dinner at another small local restaurant. Another $7 meal, including drinks.

Lastly we hit a sky bar for a nightcap,  before heading back to pack for the bus trip to Bangkok tomorrow.
