we woke up at around 4am and left the hotel at 5am to see the sun rise behind the temples of Angkor Wat.. we arrived there and to our suprise, there are about a hundred tourists waiting at the grounds already, with their dslr and tripods ready to capture the moment. with just our fashonista cameras at hand, we decided to drink some coffee first at a food stall nearby, while waiting for the sun to rise. the coffee was one of the finest coffee i've tasted so far. bad thing i wasnt able to buy the beans to bring back home.
its is Khmer New Year, by the way, so imagine the tons of people you'll see at the Angkor Wat.
the temple grounds was huge. and i swear, as much as we want to travel around, our bodies and feet cant anymore. we spent around 30-40 minutes inside one temple just taking pictures and walking around the grounds. later, after admitting that we are all tired we decided to head back home just right in time for lunch.
after, we checked in at our new hotel and took advatange of the hotel's pool becasue it was really hot that day. after a few hours of being submerged in the hotel's pool. we hurriely changed clothes for dinner and clubbing afterwards. we walked along pub street and decided to drink at angkor what bar. it was a long night, you really can stop drinking the bar's mixes. it was really good plus 2 bartenders there are from the same country as we are!
