Lunch was mainly Khmer food which tends to be sweeter than normal, full of vegetables and coconut milk.
Next stop, the only temple that faces West in the Angkor Archaeological Park…

The tour ended early for today. My sister and I decided to join a Quad Bike tour with Siem Reap Quad Bike Adventure (booked through the hotel with free pick-up and drop-off). There are two companies – do choose Siem Reap Quad Bike Adventure because of their newer bikes, professionalism and regard for safety; the other company seems to condone reckless speeding with older bikes. Do try the Sunset at Padi Field 1-hr tour (US$28 per pax) and remember to wear long pants to protect your legs against the engine heat. More information at http://www.srquadbikeadventure.com/
After Quad Biking, we went back to the hotel for the Raffles’ Apsara Terrace BBQ Buffet Dinner. The classical Apsara dance was captivating, but the BBQ Buffet Dinner was okay and not really worth the price in my opinion.

Been a long day. More temples tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.
