Driving by the moat after a full day spent viewing Angkor Wat, the Bayon (smiling faces) in Angkor Thom and Ta Phrom (overgrown by trees), we spontaneously asked our Tuk Tuk driver to stop to photograph Angkor Wat moat.
At first we just wanted photos of the moat with a dreamlike quality, but when our guide mentioned he knew a place with that quality plus with monkeys, we were doubly interested.
And there were Monkeys. Well-mannered ones at that.
Although on this day we hired a Tuk Tuk on other days we hired a car for the day and it was a great option. Having your own driver makes it easier to make photo stops like this.
Amazingly considering that Angkor Wat gets two million visitors per year, these guys were not in the least interested in us and seemed content foraging. This is not the case within Angkor Wat Temple where the monkeys can be problematic. I hope these guys stick to foraging in their natural surroundings.
