Angkor

I think I have covered enough of the darker sides to visiting Cambodia. It is an amazing country and shouldn’t be missed when travelling through south-east Asia. One of the biggest motivators for people to travel to the country is also worth a mention. In this case pictures speak louder than words has never been more true.

Outside of Siem Reap is the temple complex of Angkor, a UNESCO heritage site with beauty that exceeds your imagination. Each temple different to the last, the momentous task of construction and the smallest details that you would think were beyond the abilities of any human being. From Ta Prohm where the trees have taken over, to the smiling faces of Bayon, to the iconic towers of Angkor Wat, each temple a symbol to those who constructed them those many years ago.
