The day begun at 4.30am, we were all up and about early to celebrate Paul's birthday🎂, there was much celebration. We followed up the early start with a visit to a few temples that have been found in the area. Quite impressive waited from 5 to 6 am watching the sunrise over the temples of Angkor Wat.
Sunrise over Angkor Wat
After wandering around the temple for 4 hours we finally made it back to our very patient tuk Tuk drivers who were expecting us around 7.30.
From here we moved on to Bayon Angkor Thom, another temple, had trouble seeing the ruins thru all of the tourists, managed to find our drivers without too much delay.
Our third and last temple Ta Prohm, made famous by the Tomb Raider movie, Pop picks us up a tour guide, one of the local police force (Buoc) who happily guides us thru these ruins, clearing a path thru the ever present tourists, a great move by Pop as we learnt a lot about the temple with people getting out of our way we were thru in record time.

The return to the hotel resulted in a quick dip in the pool to cool down, then a bite to eat. This was followed by a nanna nap for all.
Evening brought us all out of our shells, we hit the bright lights of Siem Reap to celebrate Paul's 52nd Birthday, Back to the hotel to eat birthday cake kindly provided by the hotel Manager Kevin.
