Up before dawn when fortunately jetlag was working in my favour. Most of our gang had opted for the tethered balloon and some wimped out. So I entered Ankor Wat on my own, to be greeted with a sea of Chinese with selfie sticks. God they can be obnoxious !! However after a bit of pushing and shoving I managed to get a vantage point and see over the top of them. One of the advantages of being much taller than the average Oriental !! However sunrise was a bit of a damp squid as the photo shows. Sunset would have been much better (front lit) as the photo below (that I didn’t take !) So we can tick that one off the list !!
Made a new friend on the way out before finding the trusty Sam with a Tuk-Tuk to take me back to the hotel for breakfast and a day of temple overload:
This is what sunset should look like
