We booked a taxi to drive us from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap (5 hours) where we checked in a very pleasant hotel with a wonderful pool. The next morning, we took one of the hotel's tuk-tuks to start our week-long exploration of the Angkor temples and ruins. Needless to say, we were all completely breathless. Even Matthias and Oscar could not believe their eyes, especially at Ta Prohm, where trees have overtaken the ruins. After an intense morning in Angkor, we headed back to the pool and later on to Siem Reap for the best pizza in Cambodia! The next morning, we headed towards Angkor Wat which was huge and impressive and took the whole morning to explore. Once again, afternoon was for swimming and relaxing.
