After the initial shock after arriving (there aren’t any taxis in Cambodia and only scammy Tuk-Tuk-drivers welcomed us) everything was pretty good.
Our hotel resort in Siem Reap was great – even though we got there by accident more or less.
It was called the “Central Boutique Angkor Hotel”, and I can recommend it pretty much to everyone.
One of the first temples you see and probably one of the most known of the temples. This is the actual Angkor Wat. The (surprisingly vast) area you tour is called Angkor.
Amazing small temple or house (I’m being honest with you I don’t have a clue).
Goddess cleaned up by a relatively old cleaning lady.
Delicious “Amok” served in a coconut.
These were the most amazing buildings there, called Bayon, huge and with faces of Bodhisattva Lokeshvara (a buddha).
Built in 1181 by King Jayavarman VII..
Little girl who sold bananas for a dollar. USD was the mostly used currency there, you get your change back in Cambodian Riel, which aren’t that popular…
Approximately two thousand year old statue.
Monkey eating a banana and overthinking his recent life decisions.
Boys who fought the monkeys all day long. Not as a job but for fun I think…
Amazing eight-armed goddess statue.
Ancient relief inside of Angkor Wat, the faces where often destroyed in those and in statues, I don’t have a clue why…
Old worker going home, in the background is a policeman who patrolled the temple area.
Outdoor buddha statue.
