We didn’t realise that the grounds of Akgor Wat close at 5.30pm so just as the sun was setting behind the 8th wonder of the world… we were whistled at and told to get a wriggle on.  We don’t have the best luck with temples at sunset.

After our sunset calamity we headed to the Cambodian circus. All of the acts are children and adults from difficult backgrounds. It was incredible, there are no words to describe how talented (& flexible!) they are.

  • I’ve seen loads of pictures of Angkor Wat before and knew it was very iconic but 2000 people is still a lot!! Thats the only problem with very famous places isn’t it, glad to see you are doing a mixture of these and less well known places! x
