We made a last minute change to our schedule by staying one more night in Battambang so we rolled out early to hop a 3 hour bus ride to Siem Reap. Siem Reap is home to one of Asia's largest attractions...Angkor Wat. Today we found out why. Angkor Wat is one of those places that archeologists can't explain. No one understands how ancient civilizations could build these temples and palaces that cover miles and miles of land. Angkor Wat lived up to its reputation and we really had a great time.
This evening, we went back to the hotel to freshen up and get ready for dinner. Our tuk tuk driver, Sak, suggested a dinner place that blew our minds. Best meal yet. It is called Meng BBQ. It is all you can eat. Five dollars per person, and a fresh raw meat bar with everything from the basics like beef and chicken to seafood, pork, liver, squid, and others. They bring a coal fired BBQ that sits in the middle of the the table. You pick your meat and cook it at the table. They also have a few tables with sauces, rice, noodles, and spring rolls. Awesome food. I highly suggest it for anyone coming to visit.
Tomorrow morning we leave at 7am for a 5 hour bus ride back to Phenom Penh. Can't wait to spend more time with the kids.
Up next: back to Phnom Penh
