Siem Reap and Angkor Wat

Last stop in Cambodia but not the least one: the world famous temples of Angkor. With Borobudur in Indonesia (visited in 2010) and Bagan in Myanmar, this closes the “Big 3” of the most important temple complexes in South East Asia!

The Angkor Archeological Park is worth the $40 of the 3 days ticket! The temples are impressive! Some are almost lost in the forest, other get very touristic. The bas-reliefs in Angkor Wat, Bayon are breathtaking! The details in Banteay Srey are so fine! We did one day with tuk-tuk and the 2 next with bicycle. What a pleasure to bike around the temples! The last day, I spend one hour biking on the “city walls” of Angkor Thom: great!
