Hello and welcome to today’s daily edition of my blog. The sun and subsequent taste of the Taiwan tropical typhoon has left me a bit spent. However I am happy to chart a written course for the tail end of our adventures in this part of the world.
We are heading back to Phnom Phen today for a couple of days we will then catch a bus to Siem Reap and will spend three days at Angor Wat. We have it on good authority that watching a sunset and sunrise at Angor Wat is one of the best things you can do in this part of the universe. Being well versed in sunrise watching (sometimes unintentional) I shall do my best to catch and distill the experience.
From Siem Reap we will head towards Bangkok and perhaps stay along the coast to enjoy the beach a bit more. West of Bangkok are the Tiger temples where Monks and Tigers live in harmony. This photo of one of my diving buddies sold me on it instantly.
From Bangkok we will head north again to Chiang Mai to complete our hill tribe trek. Roll up the Buddhist mountain to be blessed for good luck. We will have a second attempt at the all you can drink Heineken bar. Then it will be back to Bangkok and a flight home.
