Siem Reap – Day 1 The arrival
We arrived safely in Siem Reap after a 2 hour flight from Luang Prabang. Visa on arrival was an easier process than it was when entering Laos, but another $20 entrance. Taxi was reasonable $7, although the driver spent all the time trying to sell us day trips. We took his mobile number and said we’d phone him. I will, honest.
Hotel OK, Khmer style. Bed is hard. Not quite as hard as the Thai beds which equal “wurtzite boron nitride”. I guess these beds are equal to the 2nd hardest substance “lonsdaleite”
Anyway not to disappoint all you Wat lovers, this is just over the road from our hotel and is very colourful. If you look closely you can see monks hiding in the shrubbery.
