Angkor Wat Part 2, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Here are some of the friezes and bas-relief in Angkor Wat. If they whet your appetite, there is no shortage of reference materials you can dip into.



 


Angkor Wat temples are scattered over a vast area. It reminds me of  Bagan in Burma where I saw thousands of pagodas.

A 1-day, 3-day, 1-week pass costs US$20, 40 and 60 respectively.

I bought the 1-day pass. For me it was enough. With my bicycle my range was extended but to cover the whole area would have taken me days.

(BTW, have you booked your ticket to Siem Reap? Seems air tickets from Singapore at least are selling out very fast.)

  4. Far from being an expert! Air Asia flies to Siem Reap from KL I know so I'm waiting for your pics. Easy to travel about.

  5. Wow! The national monument of Camdodia that even appears on its national flag. An eye opener.

    Looking forwards to seeing your coming posts about the great Angkor Wat.
