Day 3: Cambodia👉Angkor World Heritage, Siem Reap

ANGKOR WAaaaaaaaaaaaT!

A dream destination for me.😍

I love heritage sites and am always wowed by how people from centuries ago built those establishments with great architectural details and high quality materials that last for centuries.

On the third day of my backpacking trip, I woke-up at 4am and depart at around 5:30am. I hired a tuktuk for a whole day tour at $20. It’s highly suggested than getting expensive tour package from tour agency. There are tuktuks available as early as 4am in front of the hotels waiting for tourists going to Angkor Ticketing office or hoping to be hired for a day tour.

Agreed to have the small circuit tour, we head directly to the ticketing office around 20 minutes away from the central area. The ticketing area was crowded. All counters had long ques but the management has addressed it well. Purchasing the Angkor Pass was quick enough.

After having my Angkor Pass, we went straight to Angkor Wat temple hoping to catch for the sunrise.

It’s cloudy.😞

Mr. Sun is not yet showing up….

Luckily, I met again the three fellow Filipinos I met on the Ho Chi Minh to Cambodia bus the previous day. We waited for the sunrise for few minutes but then decided to just start the Angkor tour.

Let the “temple run” begin 👣👣👣😁…..”walk” rather😁

The end of my small circuit tour….

It’s truly amazing!!..😍

Feeling tired but worth-it. Experiencing the Angkor World Heritage is one of the grateful experiences I have. It’s nostalgic. It’s like walking back to history.

It’s better to see amazing things once in your lifetime than read it in books a thousand times.
