My final day in Siem Reap I visited the Bakhong in the Roluos group, 13km east of town. This was where the first city was built before being relocated to Angkor Wat, and it was a fitting place to enjoy a sunrise without any crowds. In fact there was only me and two others. I'm sure Angkor Wat makes a good sunrise shot too, but it's nice to try somewhere different.Photos of Roluos group
The rest of my day in Siem Reap was spent shopping and getting myself a massage. My back has been a bit sore lately so I went for a two hour torture session. Yes it feels a bit looser, but I swear I've got bruises! Can't wait to get back to Geraldton and get Brad back on the job again.
Today I took an eight and a half hour boat ride along the Sangker River to Battambang. Here I'll rent a bike for a day and see some sights and then it's back to Bangkok and onward south down to Singapore. Two weeks ago I wasn't ready to come home, but now I've completed everything on the wish list (Angkor being the last one) I can't wait. I've even started checking out the seabreeze website to keep an eye on the wind and waves! If there's wind on the 22nd, expect to see me at Coros!!
