JANUARY 10, 2014: ANGKOR SITES


January 10, 2014


     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.
Our 7 day passes

     ANGKOR WAT We will explore everything except the bas-reliefs.  We will climb all levels.  Spent 3 hrs. here
No words needed

Apsara with teeth showing


     PHNOM BAKHENG  State temple of the first capital at Angkor.  Many people come here for sunset.  About 1 hr. here including the climb




View

Almost there







     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.
