We headed to Angkor Wat in time for sunrise, along with another 2000 tourists
The famous Ta Prohm temple where Angelina Jolie filmed tomb raider.
Bayon, the temple of faces.
The slowly eroding elephant terrace
… Where ironically these two fellas were chilling out right outside.
Luke in his absolute element
We decided to head back to Angkor Wat for sunset where a Cambodian wedding was taking place
Such a lucky shot
Getting jiggy with it
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.
