I got to Siem Reap around 10am and boy was it hot. I’m in town for 4 full days (including today), which is quite a long time, so I did not feel bad in the slightest when I spent all morning lounging by the hotel pool.
But I did get out that evening, to go have a quick sunset view at Angkor Wat. Built in the 12th century, it is the largest religious monument in the world, and is the most famous site in Cambodia (it’s even on their flag).
The directions given on where I should go to see the sunset were vague and unhelpful, so I ended up seeing it set on the moat. But I wasn’t concerned – I got to see a bit of the temple today, and I’d be back tomorrow with a guide to show me around.
