We were met in our hotel lobby by Thy in a nicely air conditioned Lexus SUV, we had almost melted when we did the Angkor circuit in a tuk tuk, so that was nice.
We went to visit a floating village, which was both fascinating, and eye opening. In the afternoon we visited Bing Mealea, a huge temple still in the grips of the jungle. Thy took us through an "alternate" entrance to the temple, scrambling across ledges, over stones, and across the top of a wall, lots of fun. Thy's knowledge of the temple, and stories of Hindu mythology made for an interesting visit.
While we were driving, Thy told us stories of growing up in Cambodia, Cambodian history, as well as his personal, and terrifying experiences with the Khmer Rouge.
At the end of the day I left my camera in the front seat of the car, and Thy cheerfully dropped it at the hotel within 15 minutes. All in all, a great experience for us.More
