This is what we saw upon arriving!
Some of the statutes at the entrance of Angkor Wat was headless because people stole them away! How can they destroy their own culture and history?!
The entrance gate of Angkor Thom
You can an elephant experience too there but I think it costs around 20USD
Bayon Temple, Its AMAZING, ain't it?! A hidden city found hundreds of years later!
some artistic shot of the corridor
There are still massive restoration projects going on at Angkor Thom involving other countries such as Japan, Germany, India, China and etc. Most of the pillar at Angkor Thom has collapsed so please try to go soon because then you would be able to see the original architecture.
Another good thing visiting Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat is that you can basically TOUCH whatever you SEE there! No restriction whatsoever. I remembered we can't even go near to Stonehenge in England!
all the stairs are real steep!I pity the people last time, have to climb so much everyday!
on top, the Sweetest smile among all, according to our guide
with the face that smile the best!
They call this the walk to Heaven!
Unfortunately it is closed due to restoration work going on
Moving on to the Terrace of the Elephant where the King usually sits to witness the elephant fight
These engravings are the Flying Garuda, which is commonly found in most of the architect in Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat.
Another small temple, sorry can't remember the name.
by now, it was FREAKING HOT!
where the King kept his book, his small library
Next up, the infamous Angkor Wat which includes Ta Phrom! The place where Angelina Jolie filmed the Tomb Raider!
