Location 10 - Revealed

Superchilled Race Around the World was keenly contested in this leg. With contestants essentially working together to find the final correct location. Craig correctly got there first "Ta Prohm Temple" in Cambodia, part of the Angkor Wat temple complex, as initially suspected by Brenton.

We travelled there in 2005 when The Frenchman had a work seminar there and figured we should take advantage of the free accommodation in a place that we had heard great things of. It was much greater than I expected and Ta Prohm was my favourite location (featured in one of the Tomb Raider films). It's the awesome trees growing over the top of everything that makes it even more sensational. The gastro that I developed in the last 2 days. when we had planned farther afield day trips, was not so sensational, well, perhaps it was, but for all the wrong reasons. Overall though it was a great although limited experience of Cambodia.

On this leg Geoff gets the 'most creative' prize with tourist photos of everyone BUT himself at the temple and locations resembling Ta Prohm. Well done everyone.
