Two completely different countries that are only separated by a 100 metre stretch of poverty. We have now arrived in Siem Reap, we are all ready to get back on the bikes tomorrow to explore the famous temples of Angkor Wat and the local area of Cambodia… more miles to cross off the tally!
We only managed to do 27 miles today due to the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap, one of Cambodia’s busiest cities. What a place!
We embarked on an early morning cycle through the streets of Siem Reap. There were motor bikes everywhere, horns and noise took over the air in stark contrast to the peacefulness of the Khao Yai national park.
The noise and restless energy of the city took to a standstill when we reached Angkor Wat where the temples were set amidst towering trees and the lush rain forest. The temple resembled something out of Tomb Raider but alas there was no Lara Croft.
Angka Wat is one of the most awe inspiring wonders of the world, unbelievable architecture and a stunning place to visit. I can safely say it is now crossed off my bucket list, I will always remember this. The ride back required a lot of concentration as the temperatures to 30 degrees, only 50 miles to do tomorrow!
