BANTEAY SREY TEMPLE

PREVIOUS / NEXT

CAMBODIA by KRISS on 29 january 2017

Woke up at 4.45am this morning, our tuk tuk driver probably did the same.
He is taking us to see the sunrise over Angkor Wat temples and we are leaving Siem Reap around 5.30am.
The ride to the temples feels cold, it’s the first time in days I feel cold and I haven’t missed it !

Fortunately half an hour later we are in front of the main temple and already huge crowds are packing on both sides of the lakes with cameras, iphones, tripods etc.
I have brought a joby gorilla pod and I will post a further review to attest this is a useless piece of equipment.
At least I am packing light but this is absolutely useless ! Standing on the ancient paved pathway to the temples we get as close as we can and there is absolutely no one.
The atmosphere is hot and humid and I’m in heaven.

Unfortunately it is a cloudy morning and we have witnessed no sunrise.
We have a walk inside the beautiful temples but we want to go to Banteay Srey before scores of coaches packed with Chinese and Korean tourists get there.
So we’re back to our tuk tuk, eat a couple of bananas and we’re on our way ! A little less than an hour later after a cold but stunning ride through the Cambodian countryside we arrive at Banteay Srey.
Rose was asleep in the tuk tuk all the way.
For now there are just a few tourists but already a couple of buses arrive.
The ruins of Banteay Srey are different from the ones we’ve seen in Siem Reap and Angkor.
The stones are red and these are lower buildings.
Kate grabs the camera and starts shooting details and stuff.
These are mostly her shots I am publishing for this post.
