August 11, 2014. Day 2 of our Cambodia adventure. After our buffet breakfast at 8:00 am our guide fetched us in our hotel. I'll post the buffet breakfast separately. :))
Post for today is all about Grand Angkor Wat Temple-  7th "wonders of the world" It is also a UNESCO World heritage site. And the heart and soul of Cambodia. We explored the beautiful bas-reliefs and devotion etched in stone. No words to describe it's BEAUTY! A must in your travel bucket list! <3
Tips at the end of post. :D



Good morning face from us! :D We own our service van! haha
This is our guide, his name is Mr. Huot, he is the best guide so far and knows everything about Cambodia.
