once the seat of the khmer empire 1000 years ago, angkor today is still impressive. it is big by our standards but for the 12th century it was gigantic. best to have your bicycle with you to get around.
the main temple angkor wat…
and the view from the top.
these faces can be seen all over angkor thom.
waterways and streets connect the buildings over an area of 1000 square kilometers.
some of the temples like preah khan were left almost unrestored and preserved their own charm with the vegetation growing out of the ruins.
for me one day was enough to see the area. the next morning i left for the border to thailand.
