Well, last night I slept like a baby as I was so tired from walking the day before. I’m hoping it was due to the heat or else I’m screwed with regards to Nepal. As I already had a ticket for today for Angkor I wasn’t going to waste it. However, I wasn’t in the mood for more walking especially as I now have a blister on my right heel. So, I decided to go bankrupt and get a tuk-tuk for a trip round the place. It was worth it as I saw loads, much more than if I’d been walking. We stopped off at 6 different temples. Some were just knock-offs of Angkor Wat scaled down but others were really cool. One in particular was over-run with large trees.

You may also download “world-tour-2007-10-08.geojson” directly or view “world-tour-2007-10-08.geojson” on GitHub Gist (you may need to manually checkout the “main” branch).

Angkor as a whole is very impressive and you certainly need to spend a few days looking around. Tomorrow I’ll go to Angkor Thom and walk around then nip back to Angkor Wat and then grab a moto back to Siem Reap.
