Vietnam: Day 11 - Siem Reap, Cambodia

For our last full day of vacation, we decided to take it easy.  We hung around our beautiful hotel until about noon when we went off to downtown for a little while.  Soon, we were ready for lunch and doubled back to a restaurant within a butterfly garden.  Jon and I both ordered some relatively traditional Khmer meals and we did some reading there until about 2 in the afternoon.
Then, we headed back over to our hotel for our Khmer massages.  They were not as bone crunching as the ones we’d had in Thailand, but they certainly weren’t what you’d think of as a massage! I never even knew my feet could pop in so many ways.  Completely relaxed, we wandered back into town and took up residence at a café called the Blue Pumpkin for the afternoon.  It was nice to relax and get some more reading time in until we were ready to go get some dinner.
We ambled over to a restaurant a little ways from downtown and had a very nice meal, but soon it was time for us to admit that we had to hit the road.  We walked back over to our hotel to collect our bags, and then a nice driver took us to the airport.
Despite the late hour, the Seam Reap Airport was buzzing with activity.  There are quite a few red eye flights to Asian destination and much to my surprise, there are 4 flights to Korea alone!  After sorting out which one we belonged on, we settled in for our red eye to Incheon Airport in Seoul.
