Journey to Cambodia #2

Getting to Siem Reap was over five hours by bus; it was an uneventful trip through the countryside.

When we arrived, we got a tuk-tuk to our (surprisingly comfortable) hotel. The next day, we hired a guide to Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat!

The area north of Siem Reap is a syncretic Hindu-Buddhist complex of temple complexes, built-up over several centuries before being mostly abandoned in the 16th century. But, then again, you probably already knew that.

The main draw, Angkor Wat, is something I can't describe better than the pictures can, so here's the link to my gallery of photos. They cover: Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and a few lesser temples such as Pre Rup, Ta Prohm and Ta Som.

Coming-up: Finishing Angkor Wat and our last day in Siem Reap.
