Siem Reap, the city of Angkor Wat


When we reached the Thai-Cambodian border, we were asked to step out of the rickshaw, to get our visa to Cambodia. What we did not know, was that the office that we were shown into was not the Cambodian government office, so the visas we bought there cost nearly three times what we were supposed to pay. This was something we did not realize before we had spoken to the other people in our taxi to Siem Reap. But even though we had paid a lot more than the normal price for the visa, we had gotten it without stepping into a long queue which is common for Asian borders.When we first got to Siem Reap, we visited the famous night marked, which is a good place to get lost in the many shops and come home with a lot more than you had planned. Here you can find almost anything, to a really good price if you are willing to barter a little bit for it.
The next morning we started a sightseeing tour at 5 o’clock in the morning, to catch the sunrise at Angkor Wat- the worlds biggest religious building, before we went on to the temples of Angkor Tomb, where the famous movie Tomb Raider was shot.
Even though everyone reccomends spending 3 days of sightseeing in the Angkor Temples, we found it sufficient with full day, where we had a rickshaw driver to show us around.
