It wasn't insanely hot - it was almost as hot as Japan in summer. I don't know what it was, but my friend sweated so much and we could literally see seat coming out from her arm pores and it made a tiny sweat puddle on he arm, which really cracked us up.
This guy in pink showed us around. Later he turns out to be a scam...At least we did learn about the history of the place.
What was as interesting is the Chinese (I presume) tourists in vivid colors. Interesting contrast to the monotone sculptures. I secretly admire their boldness :P
Very crowded (again, with Chinese tourists) but we managed to find time and explore the place when no one was there.
The trees and how they are covering the ruins is surely something that I had never seen before. After the tour I finally got why people call it a "Power spot". This is after I came back to Japan but I remember wanting to go back to this place 2 days after I returned. During this trip I could only verbalize my feeling with 2 words : Majestic and Holly. lol
At night we went to a random restaurant nearby and I had a burger. 2 days in Cambodia and I had already craved for something other than local food.
After dinner we found this super cool looking bar/restaurants where you can sit in a big swing-like sofa. We had a couple of drinks. It was hard to find a tuk tuk on our way back to the hotel, so we asked for help at a random hotel nearby. The staffs were so nice to us, they even gave us a bottle of water.
This was a different location, forgot where it is but close to the lake? Again very surprised to see this kind of design. So much western influence....
