Day 64 - Siem Reap

My enjoyment of my first full day in Cambodia has been hampered by more-frequent-than-healthy bowel movements. I have however been impressed by Siem Reap as a city and have had my first views of Angkor Wat (I'll leave thoughts and reports on that until later). Expecting a pretty shitty city before we arrived, it was a pleasant shock to see landscaped gardens and the like. It's undoubtedly going through a boom stage with numerous hotels in various stages of construction. While I don't pretend to be of the ilk who wish places remained untouched by tourists (I appreciate a good choice of places to stay and eat), I can't help but feel that Siem Reap is nering saturation point and will soon not be nerly as pleasant a city.
