Cambodia - Sunrise

On our 2nd day in Siem Reap Tim got me out of bed at 4.30am
to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat.

I am not a morning person and had previously told my husband
that i would not be bothered if i never saw a sunrise in my life.

Well, i was a good wife and got up and watched it.
And that i hope is enough sunrises to last our whole marriage.

He managed to get me to the sunrise by promising me an elephant ride.

Our original plans had been to spend some time at 
the Elephant Sanctuary.
You get to go and hang out and look after Elephants that had been misused by tourists.

Unfortunately due to the shortness of our trip
we werent able to get out to the jungle to go there,
so i had to settle with being one of the evil
tourists who rode elephants....

i guess in someways i was still contributing to 
keeping the Elephant Sanctuary in business.

We saw a bunch of other temples on our
2nd day which honestly now i dont have my Lonely Planet
i cant for the life of me remember the names off.

They were slightly quieter though which was a bonus!


  1. I'd love to visit Cambodia -- looks awesome!

  2. Seeing the sunset at the Angkor Wat temples is worth it. Plus that's the only time it's semi cool in Cambodia.

  3. Beautiful photos!
