Today was our second day for the Angkor Archeological Park. We started early at about 5 to catch the sunrise over Angkor Wat. However it was cloudy so we could not see the sunrise. Still the transition from darkness to light over Angkor Wat was fantastic to see. In the morning we choose to not go inside the Angkor Wat Temple. We instead went to the farthest off temple i.e. Bantaey Srei which is 30 kms away from Angkor Wat. On the way back we saw Prasat Neak Pean, Ta Som , Pre Rup, East Mebon, Preah Khan and Banteay Kdei. This was a day long trip and we had fun climbing the stairs of the temples and experiencing the magnificent architecture.
It was late afternoon by the time we finished seeing these temples. We then headed to Angkor Wat temple. Its the biggest of all the temples. We explored the temple , saw its magnificent architecture and carvings on its walls. We have another early start to the day tomorrow.
