If , like me, you are looking for a beautiful hotel in the local architectural style, in this case Khmer or more accurately Khmer/French, you will be delighted with this find. A stylish hotel with a beautiful, river style swimming pool and large rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast is no more than fine and staff struggle somewhat with communicating but their English is a far sight better than my Khmer. It is a little way out the town but no more than 5 minutes in a tuk tuk and we haven't found that to be a problem at all.

Decided that we would do 2 tours during our 4 night stay, one to the 4 main Wats qnd second to the Sacred Mountain, so for today we arranged with our tuk tuk driver, from the night before (he works for the resort), to do a drive around to several Wats that we would not see on our tours.
We left at 9.30 and drove to the ticket office for a 3 …
Took a tuk tuk to the bus depot and waited for the bus. The last Mekong Express was a relic so I had high hopes that this one would be a bit more modern and comfortable and didn't rattle - DISSAPPOINTMENT. Not sure that this bus could be registered anywhere else in the world - not a problem, I managed with the mind over matter thing on the previous …
... Wat. We also learnt that the temple had survived intact for so long due, in part, to the moat that surrounded it which hadn't dried up as it had with some other temples that weren't so lucky. When we reached the 'front' of Angkor's outer ring - which includes a long stone path leading down to the moat and a series of ponds - we then entered the inner section, beginning to rise up towards the higher, more sacred parts. As we passed ...
