... glad we have seen it though. We spent a few more days in Siem Reap, which is when my phone got stolen from my bag. I am so glad Tom was with me, as I would have chased the girl out of the club & probably got myself into trouble. We then headed to Phnom Penh by coach. We found a nice place to stay & headed out for the evening. We spent quite a lot of time in our hotel , as the streets were so dirty & it was either raining or amazingly hot! ...

Amongst the ruins still stands three bell like towers where monks regularly visit to meditate, another ...
