Baphuon and Sunset at Pre Rup

semi-overcast 37 °C

After taking it easy the day before we decided to go back out to Angkor and see Baphuon and finish off watching the sunset at Pre Rup. Instead of going during the hottest time of the day like we did the first day, we went in the afternoon which was a great idea! Much more bearable.

Every Wat seemed to have something different than others. Baphuon had a long walkway that led up to the main building that was held up by pillars. They were all still in great condition and very neat to see when looking under the long walkway that led up to the building.

Another different thing that Baphuon has is that it was two large pools. One for the women and one for the men. The women had the largest and the men had the smallest. Finally, the women got the better of the two for once!!! :)

After Baphuon Mr. Lek took us to Pre Rup to see the sunset.

Unfortunately it was cloudy and we didn't get to see a nice sunset, but it was really neat being on the top of Pre Rup drinking a beer looking out over Angkor.

That was the end of day two. Once again, we went back to our hotel and went for a swim in our refreshing pool!
