Finally, Siem Reap

Siem Reap was the other major country in our two-week Indochina trip which we really looked forward to in visiting. Not having been to famous Angkor Wat before, I was often advised by friends who have been there that I should wear comfortable clothing as it was hot and humid.

East Gate

We visited three temples one morning. The world-famous Angkor Wat, the Ta Prohm, known for its appearance in the movie Tomb Raider, and Bayon Temple.

That famous Angkor Wat sunrise

The details were intricately done. Amazing.

Ta Phrom

And that famous tree from Tomb Raider!

Bayon Temple

Bayon Temple is more admirable from a distance

We were also supposed to visit Bantay Srei but the crazy weather did not permit. Nevertheless, we still had a nice time in Siem Reap.
