It's all about the temples!
It really is all about the temples here! So as soon as we arrived we struck a deal with a tuk tuk driver and set off to buy our passes for the next day, and went to Phnom Bakheng Temple to see the Sunset. The walk up to the temple was beautiful, it was kind of like being in the middle of an
! And when we arrived there were absolutely hoards of people on their way to do the same………..but the views were stunning & even the crowds didn't spoil it. So we were both excited of the day ahead to see many more.
Unfortunately I was sick that evening (a spot of nasty food poisoning we suspected), so the next morning Danny set off & visit the temples on his own. And I watched cable TV from my sick bed & was well & truly gutted. When he came back that evening & told me they the temples were probably the most amazing he had seen - ever - well I was even more gutted!
We had planned to leave the next day, but I wasn't really well enough to travel, so we stayed an extra day and I managed to pull myself out of bed.
Bless Danny we saw the same temples as he had already seen, but these were the 5 main big ones which included the infamous Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm, or better known as the 'Tomb Raider' because they filmed the movie here.
