Floating Village,Temples and Ankor Wattttttttttttttttttttttt

sunny 30 °C

The day after we arrived we took a tuk tuk to the Floating Village. We hired our own boat to take us out on to the lake. The floating village was pretty cool although not as big as i thought it would be. As we drove past one part of lake bit there was smoke bellowing out of it and our driver told us that someone was being cremated !!
After a nice but dirty swim in the lake we visited a fish farm, which is really just a ploy to get tourists to buy something.
That evening we headed to ankor wat to try and see if we could catch a sunset...it wasnt a brilliant night for it unfortunatly.

The next day we hired motorbike drivers to take us around the temples. First stop was the one with all the faces..(i forget the name) it was very beautiful, amazing detail and its pretty cool cos you can clamber all over it. (i did feel alittle bad but we are never allowed to touch anything in england) We also visited the temple with the trees where Tomb Raider was filmed, fed some naughty monkeys, who tried to steal my camera, some bananas and then renegotiated our terms with the drivers to be able to go and see the sunset at the top of one of the temples. Unfortunatly for us there was no sunset that night!!! dohhhh....

The next day we took the early morning boat (very early!!) to Phenom Phen.
