Oh Angkor Wat. So much has been written about this I don't really see the point in adding to the volume.
I arrived after my night bus trip which involved driving all the way back to Phnom Penh...when I opened my eyes around 1am and things looked familiar I was a little surprised. And I was generally peeved that I had back tracked the …
Six hours on a bus is not the best but the air con did work and we met an American guy who knew Siem Reap so got some tips from him.
Arrived at Green Village Palace (last part of name is a more than slight exageration) which is clean and very handy to town and pool looks very nice. Walked into town for dinner and tuk-tuk back.
Still not over the time difference (3 hours)
Early braekfast then off to the temples before the masses - wrong - Taiwanese tour groups everywhere.
Spent the morning going through a number of temples (will upload photos soon).
Back to our palace for a swim lunch in town another swim then back to see Angkor Wat. Absolutely stunning. The sheer scale of the whole complex and the intricate …
Decided on an easier day so had breakfast then wandered into town. A bit of shopping then came across a place where the did Cambodian cooking classes. Absolute winner. 3 hours lesson cooking starter and main of choice then we got to eat it too! Plus we got all the recipes. Tuesday nights will have a definite Cambodian flavour after our return.

We had 2 king size beds with hand carved wood headboards, hand carved doors and wardrobes. A grand spiral stair case leading down to the main floor .. . .almost made you feel like you were in the movies. A swimming pool and breakfast for 2 included for $14 US dollars a day . . . .
On the amusing side was there were always frogs in the upstairs hallways in the morning (WHERE did they come from???) and pools with crocodiles on both sides of the property you could see from the balcony.
The staff were friendly and spoke English.
Just a few minutes walk from the tourist area of town.
