We hired a tuk-tuk for the next day (c'mon, you don't expect Dan to cope with 2 days of exercise). Another reason for getting motorised transport was we left our guesthouse ('Smiley' - good rooms but bad food) at 5.20am to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat. This was the first time I had purposely got up to watch the sunrise, a good experience but I may wait a while before I repeat it!). The early start meant we had lots of time during the day to visit a 9 wats in total. (Pictures will be uploaded soon so I won't bore you with too much detail). All the wats are different so it didn't get boring, it was fun to climb and explore them and then sit peacefully admiring the views.
We finished Angkor at Ta Prohm on Sunday evening (9th). Ta Prohm was the location for the filming for Tomb Raider for those of you that have seen it. I shall have to add it to the list of videos to rent.....
