The bus trip is 5 hours long and as many are not feeling well most of us sleep quite a few miles away. Pauline looks particularly unwell.
I decide to take some photos from the bus window of the countryside and in the small towns as we race past.
We stop on the way at a Road House, where some buy food and souvenirs, the cafe is situated on the edge of the Lake we were meant to sail down so at least we have seen some of it. In fact the balcony is right out over the water.
There is a very colourful shrine to some God or other in the centre of the cafe.
We arrive at the Sofitel Sngkor Hotel another wonderful 5 star place of great luxury, amazing we never expected luxury any hotel would have done. There is a welcoming group of musicians and dancers all dressed up. We were just pleased to get to our room and relax with a cup of coffee before we have to be back out at the bus to head to the first really big Angkor Temple.
There are some pretty carvings and statues along the walls that still look as good as when they were carved. There are a number of big steps to climb so I didn't quite go right up to the top.
I have so many photos from this Temple that I shall make a special blog on its own for amazing Angkor Wat including the early morning sunrise that didn't happen photos. have to admit I am not at all sure which temple is which they all looked a lot similar.
In the evening there is another big welcome dinner held at several different restaurants because none can handle 100 people in one sitting, we chose to go to Madam Butterflys and enjoyed a pleasant meal with about a dozen others, we went both ways in rickshaws.
