Angkor, Cambodia

1 border, 2 taxis, 2 buses, and 7 hours after leaving Bangkok we arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is good that there is not too much to see in Siem Reap, because we were able to devote all of our time to Angkor.  Angkor is Southeast Asia's most impressive ancient ruins. It was the capital of the Khmer empire (present day Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia) from the 9th-13th century.  It has over 300 wats.

The temple complex is in the middle of a beautiful jungle.

These guys look content.

This is Murray. He took us around Angkor for a day and a half.

This is the entrance to Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is the world's largest religious structure, and is known to be the Tikal of Southeast Asia.


  1. Besides you guys, Murray and the monk, it looks like it was desolate! Absolutely stunning photography. And yes, those statues looked JUST like you and Fred. Made me laugh. I've never wanted to go to Cambodia until I saw those photos. Wow.

  2. I love these pictures on your camera, very beautiful the tree was amazing and the peaceful ancient nature

  3. Can't wait to visit Thailand after seeing your pics! Hopefully Italy will work out for you two:-)

  4. Yay! Thanks for posting your pics!
