Log/Pic 14 Siem Reap, Cambodia
So these are my pictures from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Its about a five hour bus ride from Phnom Phen. We stayed for a week just checking out all the temples/ruins of Angkor Archaelogical Park and the surrounding area. We rented bikes for a week and just rode to different place each day. I had many more photos selected but had to narrow it down (there are seven more on log/pic 13). We started at the famous Angkor Wat (vat), and spent the whole day here. Other places we went were Phnom Bakheng, Angkor Thom, which includes Byon and is the largest of the temples. This area also includes the terrace of leper kings and elephants, Baphuon, Phimeanakas, and Preah Palilay. Preah Khan, Neak Pean and Ta Som were done in one day. Prasat Kravan, Banteay Kdei and Sras Srang were done on my last day. Ta Prohm was my favorite because of all the roots still growing wild throghout and within. This was the site of some tomb raider shots. We did sunset at Pre Rup. Good times!
