    Angkor Wat Things to Do

    So with the waves of people flocking on the west side of Angkor Wat to see if the sun will light up the clouds or break through for a nice orange ball, I decided to try something different. From my experience, I knew the clouds were not going to break and it would not be much of a show this morning. I walked to the east side of Angkor which was an...

    Angkor Wat Things to Do

    The four tiers of aspara here are incredible. They are more than 700 years old but many are extremely well preserved, likely to be a result of them having been covered over by the front wall. Extraordinary that these figures were simply covered over. It is believed that this was undertaken to simply extend the length of the platform which is...
