My week long sojourn in Southeast Asia began with 4 exceptional days in Siem Reap, Cambodia. After a quick introduction to the tuk tuk, the preferred method of transport, our explorations of this amazing UNESCO World Heritage site began: waking up at 5am to watch the sun rise over the magnificent Khmer temple of Angkor Wat, climbing up Angkor Thom and other temple ruins dating as far back as the 9th century, marveling at intricate Hindu wall carvings still so much in tact, laying poolside at the stunning Le Méridien, watching Apsara dancers tell mythical stories through their graceful dance, visiting local artisans, and savoring copious amounts of exotic fruits in tropical heat. Cambodia was absolutely sublime and utterly unforgettable.

I was in Cambodia this past summer, all of your pictures bring back such fantastic, rich memories.
The day we were at Angkor Wat it was pouring rain and rivers of water cascaded into all the ‘pools’ and down every surface, it was magnificent. All your dry, sunny pictures make it look so different- beautiful in a whole other way.
Thanks for sharing!
P.S. I hope you got a fish pedicure in the central market in Siem Reap?!
Mon dieu! Seeing all of those baguettes makes me wonder whether these photos were really shot in Cambodia, or in Paris! It’s all about the baguettes here in Paris; I guess I would be right at home in Cambodia too!
Thanks for sharing! I hope to got there sometime soon!
Smiles and all the best,
did you plan your own trip or did you go through a travel site? your pictures are amazing!
I’d love to reblog this to my Meandering In My Mind blog. I don’t see an option for that, so I’ve linked your URL to today’s post.

WOW I would LOVE to go to Cambodia one day!
This reminds me that when I was a little kid I watched Tomb Rider (with Angelina Jolie), and I thought that this was the coolest place ever! ha
I actually just got back from China, and here’s my 1st out of 3 posts about everything you need to know when traveling to Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.
Today’s post: Beijing!
It took a big effort to write the whole thing, and I will really appreciate it if you read it, or at least see the pictures! 😉
Awesome pictures! Siem Reap and Angkor Wat are without doubt my favorite travel spots!
@ann, I planned my own trip. Feel free to email me with any questions or tips on my favorite spots!
Did you go to Banteay Srei or Beng Melea? I went to them this last summer (2012) and loved them! Also did you get a chance to see the floating village? 😀
May I ask which hotel you stayed at. Thinking about going myself. Tks
@Tyfoon I stayed at Le Méridien Ankor – it was lovely and very close to the temples. @Kendall I made the extra trip to see Beng Melea – it was totally worth it!!!
I am visiting Siem Riep via Singapore from South Africa in mid April. Cannot wait. Your pics are exquisite!
I’m in search for a new camera and saw all these amazing photos,
what camera do you use? or any recomendations? I’m not a beginner but not an expert either! 😉
Gorgeous! As an expat who does live in Cambodia – these photos definitely do it justice. ♥
Easily my most favorite place on Earth. Cambodia is incredible and I highly recommend everyone go to not only Siem Reap, but the southern ocean-facing areas like Kampot and Kep. I was there exactly two years ago and miss it!
did you book for a tour guide or you just went there by yourself? my husband and i are planning to go and i was curious if we can manage to go to the temples on our own or needed a tour guide. thanks!
A little behind on your posts and just saw your beautiful pics from Cambodia…I just got back from 6 weeks around Cambodia and Thailand and had an amazing time too.. Always interesting to see another persons visual interpretation of the same place through their pictures! Thanks for the post, El
Amazing photos! This is on my list of places and you’ve just helped me move it up to the top 3 🙂
Siem Reap, located in northwestern Cambodia, is the gateway to the world-famous Angkor temple complex, which includes the magnificent Angkor Wat. The province also contains a vibrant capital city boasting many luxury hotels, beautifully-aged colonial buildings, a buzzing Pub Street, silk farms, markets, and much more.

You ought to take part in a contest for one of the most useful blogs online.
I most certainly will recommend this website!
One or more projectors are used to process programs. He,
along with the other townspeople, watches the beautiful
theater being demolished. Hence, the people are well educated and highly concerned about the
development of the region and keenly look forward to make
their lives always easy.
