Siem Reap

Siem Reap (35) After a few weeks lazing around at the Beach we had to get back to some sight seeing. Siem Reap is the Cambodian town from where you can see the many temples of Angkor, supposed to be the most impressive temples of SE Asia.

Siem Reap (3) Iain had been having a few foot problems so he tried out a fish massage in preparation for all the trudging around temples that was to come.

Siem Reap (6)  We tried to see sunset at Ta Prohm but there were a few people in the way.

 Siem Reap (21) We were the only people at Angkor Wat for sunrise but we had a terrible time keeping our eyes open after having to get up at 5am.

Siem Reap (36)  The temples were worth all the trudging.

Siem Reap (55) Our favourite – the Tomb Raider one, with the jungle trees clinging to the buildings as they’ve grown through them.

Siem Reap (80) We managed to meet up with Amanda and Tony (from Hove) on the last night in Siem Reap. They had the temples to look forward to the next day.
