I found when travelling through these out of the way ancient sites it is imperrative to carry plenty of fresh water with you , although in some places it is available ,the heat is so intense you will use a LOT of water..The sites here are situated long way off the roads and sometimes entail long walks ...so be prepared and AWAYS have your water with you..
crWhen purchasing bottles of water ALSO make sure that the bottle cap seal has not been broken and the bottle has been re- filled with nastty water..
A common scene as you wander around the sights are children trying to sell souvenirs such as postcards as well as drinks, bracelets, scarf’s and such like. They're quite persistent, even bordering on annoying but at the same time they are quite sweet and only trying to make some money. I got chatting to a few of them when I had a little something to eat at one of the food shacks that overlook the Bayon on Angkor Thom and asked them about school to which they replied that they went to one but I wasn't so sure they were telling the truth.
