Up at 6:30 for the flight New Year's Day only to find out on arrival at the airport the flight was cancelled! This meant a joyous 8 hour wait, nursing hangovers stuck in the airport!
Finally landing in Siem Reap, Cambodia we queued up for our visas, not having passport photos we were 'fined' a whopping $1 each and we were on our way in the Tuk Tuk to the hotel!
We dropped our bags off and to the market ...

Temple four: Preah Neak Poan, approx AD 1175
Getting to this water temple was something. It was down a raised wooden walkway across a wide man made pond. The temple itself was relatively unimpressive, four smaller pools around a large central pool with a temple island. The water features weren't working for some reason. Only 900 years old.

Our third and final day was arguably my best, saving the best til last, a 4.30am alarm ...
... scariest thing, we have been on two night time Tuk Tuk rides, and they are so fun! The Toul Sleng prison and killing fields were really sad and confronting, it was so upsetting to think that that is something that actually happened and not just something on a movie.
