Cambodia - Siem Reap

We overnight bussed in from Sihanoukville to Siem Reap - took around 12 hours. We had bought some Valium over the counter at a chemist and it saved us - we slept the whole trip through! Arrived in at 8am and luckily the hotel had sent someone to pick us up and they let us straight in to our room too! We stayed at the Angkor Pearl which is a newer place - less than a year old - very nice rooms - $20 a night! We went for a wander to get some breakfast and through the day markets and quickly figured out that Siem Reap is very quiet during the day! At night it is bustling with lots of little cafes, pubs, amazing night markets and food stalls all over! We woke up at 4.30am for sunrise of Angkor Wat - very early morning! It was very cool watching it get from dark to light but didn't really do any oranges or colours in the sky! We spent about 6 hours around the temples and were both well and truly ready to leave by the time we got to the 10th one! Lahni and Eleanor arrived in a day later and then we spent some time with them before bidding farewell to Cambodia!!
