Siem Reap To Phnom Penh By Bus

IMG_4543.jpg

We left the hotel at 8:15 to catch the bus to Siem Reap werch was only $15 US per person. It had the Canadian and the 2 circle outlets. It had wifi that was strong enough to play minecraft together but not enough to check your email. The bus ride was around 4 hours, I think. We stopped twice, the first time was to have lunch and the second time was to stretch your legs or maybe to grab a drink of sugar cane juice. The view was amazing! I could see there houses and shacks. We got there and got a tuk tuk to our hotel. The tuk tuks had mesh around the back and sides to prevent people to scooter next to you and steal your bag.

Temples In Siem Reap, Cambodia

The temples were AMAZING! They were big and had lots of hallways. The first temple was called ‘Angkor Wat’ and it was bigger than the other five temples. It had lots of hallways and stairs. It was built out of stone and held together by a vegetable-based formula. It is surrounded by a moat that is spanned by two bridges; one that was temporary and the main one that was getting fixed.

I liked at the end of Angkor Wat where there were three ladies selling carved pineapples and mangos. We bought one pineapple and one mango to start with, then we got another two from a different lady. We also bought three t-shirts and almost got a violin with a drum attached to it. We didn’t buy it because we couldn’t pack it and he wouldn’t negotiate low enough.

After Angkor Wat we got in the Tuk Tuk  to drive to the next set of temples. At the third temple they all started to look like the same. The temples seemed to get bigger and taller as I walked. The second last one called ‘Baphuon’ had a lot of stairs up to the top that’s sort of like a view point. From there I could see lots of trees and could hear the rain pounding down on my pink tiny umbrella. It took us seven hours and thirty minutes to look at the temples without out a guide (a guide takes longer).
