Temple Runs in Siem Reap

When one thinks of Siem Reap in Cambodia, it means Angkor Wat. Yet, when I stepped into SR coming from Viet Nam, I learned that there  are more temples aside from the famed Angkor Wat.

It was a hot day touring the complex but it didn’t deter Vanny, our guide, Besty and me to stop and be amazed. Words can’t give ¬†justice how amazing those edifices were eventhough some were reconstructed. Visiting Angkor Complex reminded me of one of my many ambitions when I was younger — to be an archeologist!

Angkor Thom and Bayon, Baphuon, Phimeanakas, Ta Phrom and Terraces of the Leper King and Elephants and of course, Angkor Wat – some of the most visited areas in the whole complex. A day is not enough to see all the temples that were constructed centuries ago. This means only one thing —plan the next visit to Siem Reap!
