Angkor Photo Tour

One of our first destinations on our map for Cambodia were the famed Angkor temples outside of Siem Reap. Instead of going into great depth of the history of these remarkable creations, we thought we’d let the images speak for themselves.

Ta Prohm – By far our favorite and great to see at sunrise.

Bayon Temple – Famed for its smiling buddhas, it is understandable how this temple complex has become widely popular with photographers and tourists.

Preah Khan Temple – Another favorite, north of the frequented routes with plenty of overgrown sections and breathtaking miniature courtyards around each corner.

Angkor Wat – The famed Angkor Wat often steals the thunder of many of the astonishing temples in its close vicinity. More than the temple itself, what made our experience memorable was following a procession of monks around the temple complex… and yes, we did our best with being respectful as we took photos.
