The flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap is only about 1 hour on a little prop plane via Cambodia Angkor Air. We caught it early in the morning so that we could be at the famous Angkor Wat temple by lunch time.
My expectations of Cambodia were blown almost immediately, when we arrived at the airport. I have never been in airport that looked so much like a 4 or 5 star hotel. This was just a foreshadowing of the rest of my time in this wonderful, and yet tragic, country.
