(Causeway leading to Angkor Wat ) I recently visited friends in Vietnam, as they were working during the week, I jumped the border over into Cambodia and spent a couple of days there wandering around the temples reclaimed from the Jungle. If you are around that region it is well worth the effort and a few short flights. Truly amazing and just looking over the pictures again today makes me want to head back and explore some more. My flight was with Angkor Air which is 49% owned by Vietnam Air which means the flights to Siem Reap do not get discounted much. Being a smaller operator there was the usual joy of a bus out to the plane. The airline is new and so are the planes. They have jets that leave earlier in the day, but I was in no rush to get out of bed and got one of the smaller prop planes that seat around 60 pax. No surprise that the plane was full considering the destination. The flight was enjoyable, a small meal was served by two lovely FA's and by the time clear up was under-way it was time to begin the descent. On approach to Siem Reap a vast lake was in evidence and I learned later that this fills during the rainy season and then empties back into the mekong river as the season changes.
