This was the apex of this trip for me. Angkor Wat did NOT disappoint. It is a wonder. The level of craft is remarkable and the complex a fascinating mix of spaces, ritual areas, ancient stories carved in long story sequences.
The temple was surrounded by water features of on kind or another. A real benefit in this climate. There was a massive moat a mile on each side and more than one lake inside the temple complex. One treat was to see a reflection in the lake in front of the temple. Although the best time to see it is sunset, we were the I. The morning and even then we could see an impressive image.
It was hot as the hinges of hell and very humid. But I was delighted to be there sweat not withstanding.
