My friend and I did a tour around Hoam Kiem Lake. At night the lights come on around the lake and the area fills with people out for a social stroll.
We managed to find a nice place to have a beer while the everyone swirled around. The weather was fantastic. We spent a couple days of touring around city while waiting for the bike tour to start.
We did a bit of wandering one night. The multicolored street night life was quite exotic. And agressive. I had to disentangle myself several times from the various people that would not take no for an answer.
We eventually had to get out of there intact and get back on to the main street. This was a bit more calm with some nice music and of course the local beer.
The outdoor restaurants and markets in Bangkok were fantastic. Here we went to potentially best restaurant in Bangkok to sample some of the wares. We were slightly warned off eating at the outdoor restaurants. We never encountered any food problems throughout the entire trip.
Before Cambodia, Brent and I did a preliminary walking tour through Bangkok. Even Ronald MacDonal was culturally appropriated. No, we never ate there. There are any number of temples in the city. A few amazing ones coming up.
We also had an opportunity to bike through Angkor Thom. Here the temple has been left in more of its natural state. The ancient trees are actually holding the temple together now so they decided not to remove them.
It was an early morning in order to get to Angkor Wat for the sunrise. The guides had us along part of the wall so that we could take some unimpeded photos. The crowds gathered, as did the monkeys. Which got quite agressive.
