Psar Hun Sen (Hun Sen Market) - Hun Sen is a Crook
On my final day in Siemreap, I pretty much took it easy and was at Angkor Wat from dawn to dusk. Even then I did not manage to visit every corner of Angkor Wat, as there is just so much to see and admire. The complex is HUGE and has carvings all around. I seeked out for the much famed Smiling Apsara with her teeth showing. I managed to find it after some very close looks at all the apsaras on the entry gopura.

I soon learned that there was also another unique and funny Apsara at the top of Angkor Wat, the apsara figure is posing with her tongue sticking out. Of course I only managed to find it after closely keeping an eye out on every Apsara figure I passed and asking the local caretakers for directions.

Most of the time I just sat there on the corner and admired the magnificently large structure, I just could not get sick of it. I met a few travellers who all said they've been there countless times, weeks on end. I wish I had that luxury LOL.

Sunset at Angkor was amazing as the evening sun lit Angkor Wat up so it looked all gold and mystical. I caught a motorbike back to Psar Chas and walked back home in the dark unlit streets of Siemreap.
