The tempels surrounding Angkor Wat

Jane and I met this morning at 9am to go visit some tempels by bike. After making the Cambodian quality bikes ready for our ride, we took off. We rode a few kms and bought a three day ticket. We first visited the biggest temple, Bayon, then the tomb raider temple, Ta Prohm, end ended with the sunset view temple, Phnom Bakheng. It was exhausting! The things I liked most was riding with the bike from one temple to the other. Almost like riding through the jungle. And so many butterflies!!! I tried to take a photo of at least one of them, but… It’s a butterfly. When you think you have it, it’s already gone.

There was also one part where we had to cross a water that wasn’t on the map. We had to get off the bike and walk next to it to arrive where we wanted to be.

We deserved a good meal so had it in an Indian restaurant.

The day ended with a visit to the night market where I couldn’t resist to buy another 2 pairs of pants. It’s a good thing my backpack was so light when I came here.

    Tempels bezoeken met de fiets lijkt me ook wel leuk, ik vrees alleen dat er geen kinderstoeltjes zullen zijn…

      Dan regelen we toch gewoon een tuktuk of zo… Een prijs regelen kan ik intussen als de beste 😉
      En wie weet, Thailand is Cambodja niet, misschien is er daar wel een kinderstoeltje te vinden… O ja, ik heb intussen ook mijn verblijf in Bangkok geregeld, tis een straat of twee van jullie. Penpark place. (Hahaha, de automatische spellingscorrector wilde penpark veranderen in penarie… hopelijk niet!) 6-8 sept… Ik kijk er al vree naar uit om je een knuffel te kunnen geven en Liene even vast te houden!
