Pick up by tuk tuk driver Chhon at 7:00 am. Bought our 7 day passes for $60 pp. The pass is laminated and has your picture on it. You show this at the checkpoint stop at the Angkor site entrance and it gets punched until all 7 days are used. I had prearranged tuk tuk drivers for 6 days and a car for 1 day. I did this with the help of TA forum regular lenny.

ANGKOR WAT We will explore everything except the bas-reliefs. We will climb all levels. Spent 3 hrs. here
|No words needed|
|View from 3rd level|
|Stairs going up|
|Apsara with teeth showing|
| BAKSEI CHAMKRONG not allowed to climb so around 15-30 minutes here.|
Back to our hotel around 12:30 pm. Pool break for 2 hrs. Was able to relax and feel refreshed. Picked up by Chhon at 3:00 pm.
BAYON One of my favorites and only here for 2 1/2 hrs. but I could have easily spent much more time here. Back to our hotel 5:45 pm. Cost for the tuk tuk $17. There is an extra charge if you want to do a split day like this.

Dinner in town IL FORNO for pizza and pasta. Under $16. While husband explores I have a drink at the RED PIANO. Pina colada pricey at $4.50 but this is a good people watching place. Used Narak tuk tuk round trip $6.
