I landed at Siem Reap Airport in the morning and was whisked away to my hotel, Lotus Blanc, a very nice resort. I’ll stay here for 3 nights before heading back to Phnom Penh.
I spent today getting acclimated to the area. There’s a lot to do here, but most of it revolves around the many Angkor temples that can be visited. To get started, I thought I would take a helicopter ride ($90) around the major Angkor temples, including Angkor Wat. It was a great flight; the pilot was an Australian who moved here a few weeks ago. The other passengers were from China.
Some videos of the flight:
Tomorrow I have a full day of visiting temples!
