Angkor Wat Travel In Afternoon

  • By on August 1, 2009 | 4 Comments

    On the second day of Siem Reap Travel, we woke up early in the morning just to catch sunrise in Angkor Wat and proceed to visit the Bayon Thom in City Of Angkor.

    Angkor Wat was built around 12th century as the capital by Suryavaman II and I recommend you to visit here in the morning for the sunrise and afternoon for the whole temple visit.

    We are back to Angkor Wat again, this time is the afternoon visit and we were just lucky under the good weather πŸ™‚

    Good pose, but I need more light from to shine from us below. That will be perfect shot onion-good

    This is Ah Hong from Travel Escape, what you seeing here is the Angkor Wat temple with the unique structure of blah blah blah… monkey-hehe-1

    Take a note on the water inthe pond of Angkor Wat, it’s quite dry in the month of March.

    I guess those professional photographer with DSLR would love to see the pond full with water for reflection shot πŸ˜€

    So try to visit Angkor Wat during the end of raining season πŸ˜‰

    Amazing structure inside the temple of Angkor Wat, you can move like a train here πŸ˜€

    I feels like standing in the LRT station, you will realize the structure was straight and flawless.

    Imagine people from 12th century built this temple, what is the engineering technology used back then?

    There’s wall carving in the right side of picture and among it describe The Battle Of Kurukshetra, an epic of the ancient time that you shouldn’t missed πŸ˜€

    Make sure you listen to the story if you come to Angkor Wat and for sure you need a tour guide to tell you the story πŸ™‚

    This is the upper level and tower from the courtyard of second level.

    Too bad the tower was closed from entry due to some restoration in progress, but good for my acrophobiaΒ monkey-safe

    Even DiGi Yellow Man can’t enter to this tower due to overweight in climbing up πŸ˜€

    Argghh…I need to at least fake in my Angkor Wat climb to show the others I am not acrophobia monkey-scare

    Hi Ah Hong,

    You guys went into the temples in bermudas/shorts…..no problem? As I have read from some forum that bermudas/shorts are not allowed

    Hi Geraldine. We are not aware of that rule. Saw lots of other tourist wearing shorts as well and nobody stop us. Think it should be safe with shorts πŸ™‚
