Smaller temple in the Angkor Wat complex
If you leave your self open to the unexpected but plan just enough to get to your destination, you find that life gives you little gifts of beauty waiting there for you to take in. I came across this smaller temple in the outskirts by chance. As my tuk tuk driver was in the process of passing the road that went into this temple i stopped him and decided to investigate. Although a smaller temple compared to the rest of the Angkor Wat complex, still worth a visit since its a living temple ware the locals go to worship or pay there respects as a monk was doing while i was there. With the lack of tourist, a quite peaceful atmosphere lies present waiting for you to experience. As for getting there like much of the rest of the Siam Reap temples you need to rent a tuk tuk driver for a day. Best way is to split it between a few people. But for the ridicules price, mines was $25us a day with tip, you can get to many more places than the normal tourist temples. Bikes could be an option if your fit, but there is lots to see. The other thing is that as you travel further from the main Angkor Wat temple complex the temples in the surrounding are more raw and untouched by reconstruction. Something to think about when your counting your penny's and being a tight ass with your money deciding between renting a bike or getting a tuk tuk driver aka local that nows the are.
