Beautiful Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is one of those places in the world where your mouth opens in awe, regardless of how many pictures of it you’ve looked at before. The temples were masterfully constructed in the 12th century and have withstand the past of time in almost perfect shape. The surrounding nature makes the temples stand out and enhances their beauty even more. We spend two whole days (from sunrise to sunset) touring on the back of a tuk-tuk and enjoying as many temples as we could.

I won’t try to describe the beauty and magnificence of the temples, I’d rather show it to you with some pictures. I hope you enjoy them πŸ™‚

Bayon, the famous temple with faces carved on each of the sides of 54 towers, was definitively one of my favorites. The faces are supposed to resemble both the face of the Buddha and that ofΒ King Jayavarman VII and you can certainly feel a calm yet powerful gaze upon you at all times. We went to Bayon twice to make sure we could enjoy the sunset’s soft lightβ€”totally worth it.

After two whole days admiring the temples it was time to move on. Our time in Cambodia was running out but we knew that Thailand would be waiting for us with open arms!
