So today was the day, we got to see the infamous temple complex of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. We hired three bicycles for $2 each and made our way to the temples, missed the entrance where we were supposed to buy tickets, had to cycle back to buy the tickets and then after all made it to Angkor Wat. The main Angkor Wat temple was packed with tourists from all over the world and wasn’t too impressive so we decided to move on to the smaller ones and we weren’t disappointed. Away from the large crowds we saw some old temples that were fighting against collapsing and the jungle. So we hopped from temple to temple but what is better than visiting old ruins? Visiting old ruins with a beer! So I bought one at one of the many popup mini-markets that you can find everywhere on your way.
I decided to go for an Cambodia beer. The Angkor would have been more suitable considering where we were but I screwed it by having it the first day. So to the beer, it smelled sweet malty and looked like a typical lager, pale golden with not much of a head. The taste was also pretty standard, it was slightly bitter with a sweet malty note. The solid 5 percent alcohol content rounded up the package. Not too bad of a beer that is easy to drink and is not too weak.
