My second time to the Ang Kor Wat temples after 20 years, as I wanted the kids to see this stunning world heritage site. Temples still look in good condition but the whole place was packed full of tourists. I really enjoyed my visit 20 years ago and it had felt truly exotic and mystical back then but now it just felt very touristy. Having said that, I’m happy if the tourism helps generate income for the country. And the temples still look stunning in the sunrise, no change there.
Got a good deal with our tuk tuk driver for $20. He picked us up at 4.30am and took us to at least 3 different temple sites before I decided I was too tired to continue and returned back to our villa at 4pm. Tuk tuk driver was great, he made sure we had lunch and had ice cold bottles of water. Nice.
