After the chaos that was Phnom Penh, it was great to get out of the capital and see some real Cambodia. The little city of Battambang is much calmer and restful, and the circus show that we mainly went there to see was fantastic. Really talented entertainers. Siem Reap is another story completely. I had no idea that were so many ancient temples here. We were heading for Angkor Wat but spent the whole week going round all the other stuff before we even got to the Big A! Our Tuk-Tuk driver Mr Ra was great to have along and helped us find our way around. And people mostly in this part of the world are really friendly and helpful. The local food is delicious and there are plenty of Western choices for when the kids get tired of being “challenged”.
