    Angkor Wat

    July 31, 2017 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Today we got up at 4 am!! We made our way to Angkor Wat in the pitch black and managed to get the most perfect seats across from the main Angkor Wat temple for sunrise. Angkor Wat was built in the 12th century and is the largest religious complex in the world. The entire site measures over 162 hectares so we travelled around from temple to temple by tuk tuk. We spent over 6 hours looking at the different temples, they were all amazing (particularly the Temple used in Indiana Jones, which is over run by trees) but nothing beat the sunrise, although the monkeys were very impressive. We got back to the hostel at lunchtime and went straight to bed. When we eventually woke up we went to the pool for a few hours. We spent the evening in the rooftop bar where we met some girls from Scotland who had been in our hostel in Hoi An and Phnom Penh.Read more
