I always think the best part about travelling is not the things you do and see, but the people that you meet doing them, and Siem Reap proved this tenfold.
|What is the most important thing? It is people! It is people! It is people!|
That night we met up with our old kiwi friends Matt and Greigh, the third place that we managed to see them after Vang Vieng and the 4000 Islands! We dragged Laura along as our token Australian and had an amazing night at Angkor What? It was great to see the guys one last time and play some traditional kiwi drinking games in the bar (eggs anyone?).

Bayon was my favourite. I absolutely loved being able to ramble all over it exploring the different passage ways and courtyards. The way the faces all look the same is amazing.

Wednesday found us all in need of some more relaxation time so we walked down the road from the Mad Monkey and into the first hotel with a pool we saw. We had to pay $6 for the use of the pool (a whole nights accommodation at our hostel!) and ended up being sucked into paying $6 more for the buffet BBQ lunch. Best. Idea. Ever. Delicious chicken wings, steak, ribs, potatoes, capsicum (sorry, PEPPERS), bread, salad and CHOCOLATE BROWNIE. Needless to say we chowed down on that one.

I would just like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you guys because you made our time in Siem Reap amazing. And don't hesitate to hit me up in Edinburgh or Kim in Australia! xxx
