Cambodian Barber Shop
After a short flight from Bangkok, we arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia last night and took a tuk tuk to our hotel. Over the next few days we will explore the temples of Angkor and of course, enjoy delicious Khmer dishes.

The central tower of this temple is encrusted with colorful porcelain. We climbed these steep and narrow steps for a great lookout over Bangkok.
Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho
Wat Pho is the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok, dating back to the 16th century. It houses Thailand's largest reclining Buddha, measuring 46m long and 15m high. The figure's toes has mother-of-pearl inlay in various patterns.
Today we explored the grounds of the Grand Palace, the former Royal residence. This is truly one of the most beautiful places we've ever visited. The architecture is incredible and the (real) gold on the buildings shimmers in the sun.
The Chatuchak Market is one of the world's largest weekend markets. It sprawls over 27 acres and has over 15,000 stalls. There's everything from crafts to antiques to housewares to clothes to pets, etc. We even saw miniature bunnies in dresses(?!?). We were completely lost in the maze of stalls for most of the day but thoroughly entertained.
