Siem Reap, Angkor Wat, second visit (with family)

dscf3912

Second visit of Angkor Wat (or third day for me). This time, I’m not cycling. Because we are three, and we pay only for one day, we choose to go by tuck-tuck. One day = $20 and three days = $40. From February 2017, the prices are going to rise a lot! Anyway, the temple remained exactly the same as few months ago but fortunately I’ve seen places I didn’t or couldn’t visit the preview time. I took a lot less pictures too.

We’ve started by the classic, the well known Angkor Wat itself. This time, I can enjoy a better weather.

For now there is not too many people yet.

Ah, last time I was here, I arrived too late to the stairs were closed. Let’s have a look.

If you got extra money to spend you can get in this balloon over there.

That’s inside the temple, still on the top level.

Baphuon temple. Last time I stopped here. I didn’t have the energy to visit this one but today we are doing it.

Walking around the base of the temple.

There is some stairs coming.

Yes, be careful!

Nice view :-)

This one is Thommanon, a small temple where you can have a walk around it.

Ta Keo temple, well the flowers on top of Ta Keo temple :-) The “full” visit is here.

And Ta prohm where we got a bit lost…

Ah! I’ve been in this temple last time, took some time to visit but never ended here where the “famous” tree stands.

The movie Tomb Raider used this place for one of their scenes.

Ahah, I know where are all the people now. The temple is quite big and we met few people here and there. But as soon as we got in the real center of the thing large groups of Chinese took over the place. I don’t want to bother taking a better picture than this. That’s it for today.

  1. Pour la petite histoire (j’ai trouvé ça dans le livre acheté au Temple) le temple de Ta Prohm a été volontaire laissé à l’abandon. Les seules “améliorations” consistent à éviter qu’il devienne trop dangereux d’y circuler. En conclusion, si rien n’avait été fait, tous les temples d’Angkor seraient dans cet état. La végétation a pris le dessus, surtout les immenses séquoias.
