Cambodia: Siem Reap – Part 1

Visited Cambodia, from Siem Reap, took the local bus to Phnom Penh, and flew back to KL from Phnom Penh. Was a 5 days trip.

Siem Reap – visited the “Floating Village” at Tonle Sap Lake, where fishermen and their families lives on the water and it is also the largest permanent freshwater lake in Southeast Asia.

The following day we visited the famous Angkor Wat, one of the most beautiful and fascinating place on the planet. Made by the Khmer kings in a process that last almost 4 centuries, this magnificent area has been abandoned and hidden by the thick forest. Re-discovered by a French man about 150 years ago, now Angkor Wat has become one of the most visited archaeological and artistic site on the planet.

We moved to the Ta Prohm Temple which was built in AD 1186 by King Jayavarman VII. Short history for you… :)

At the Ta Prohm Temple you will see trunks of trees twist amongst stone pillars, and spread their gigantic roots over, under and in between the stones, probing walls and terraces, making the temple even more attractive.

After the Ta Prohm Temple we visited the Bayon Temple, one of the most popular sites in the Angkor complex. Over 200 large faces carved on the 54 towers, which at that time represents the 54 provinces in The Khamer Empire.
