The boat ride leading out to the massive open waters of Tonle Sap lake was very relaxing. We had the boat to ourselves and the open top deck gave me an uninterrupted view of my surroundings. Tonle Sap was huge, with its quiet calm waters expanding into the horizon. I felt I was in another world where time stood still.
Slowly, the sky turned orange, creating a spectacular painting of golden hues across its borderless canvass. Does the boat driver realise how lucky he is to witness this transformation every evening?
Angkor’s temples are magnificent, but if you ask me about my happiest memory from this trip, it would have to be the leisurely boat ride on Tonle Sap, touching the wind, breathing in the natural scent of my surroundings and watching the sky change colour.
What a beautiful way to wrap up the day!
