The Angkor Temples

Boy oh boy have I seen some temples during my world travels. Particularly through my extended wanderings across China, India, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. But in terms of grandeur and scale, I’m not sure anything can compare to The Angkor Temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Bayon Temple, Angkor. Siem Reap, Cambodia. November 2015.

The temples of Angkor are epic in proportion, intricate in detail and sublime in symmetry. These logic-defying structures are the result of Cambodia’s ancient rulers battling to outdo each other with each ambitious creation. If you’re new to the whole Asian temple malarkey, you could easily spend an entire week here. For me, I made do with a day trip taking in three of Angkor’s big-hitters.
