    5 out of 5 stars

    Siem Reap Restaurants

    I really appreciate my diner in Sky River restaurant. I was really suprise by the place, on a rooftop on the riverside. The view was great with a very good panorama of the city. I choose western food and this was very tasty. The service was good and the cocktails too. My best restaurant during my three days in Siem Reap.

    After a few hours within the Angkor Wat complex we eventually reached the last building which would lead us to the causeway and the market to the right.By now we were tired and hungry, but life is not that easy and we had stragglers in our group, maybe some were lost and our guide had to go back and find them.It was an opportunity for us to have a...

    Phumi Siem Reab Off The Beaten Path

    Now this is a really weird sight: Cambodia's former dictator Pol Pot's toilet seat!As you might know, Pol Pot was "Brother No. 1" of the Khmer Rouge and as such responsible for the murder of 2 million people! He formed a communist guerilla organisation and eventually managed to come to power. His idea of communism was that of an archaic rural...

  • Exploring the Royal Palace Wall

    Angkor Thum Off The Beaten Path

    Situated between Baphuon and Phimeanakas temples is a large wall that encompasses the Royal Palace area. There is a trail that runs along side the wall. It is worthwhile to take some time to explore this trail and walk along the wall. Many parts are still in good condition and it is a great way to get away from the crowds at the temples. Not many...

  • The 200 Faces of Bayon

    Angkor Thum Favorites

    Bayon is one of my favorite places. I went twice because I enjoyed it so much. My second visit was in the late afternoon. Bayon is known for the many faces of Lokesvara, better known in Buddhist mythology as Avalokitasvara, a Bodhisattva that is widely revered. There is said to be 200 faces around the upper tier. I didn't count but there is a lot....

  • Outer Gallery of Bayon

    Angkor Thum Favorites

    The outer gallery of Bayon has beautiful carvings that are still in very good condition. Some walls show a procession of the Khmer army marching. Another wall shows activities of daily life at Angkor. This was one of my favorite things to do. I could spend hours just studying the carvings and imagining how life must have been for them in the 12...

Ruines d' Angkor

  • Bat Chum Temple

    Ruines d' Angkor Off The Beaten Path

    Bat Chum is a small temple with only three towers. They are in line but surrounded by a moat. The towers are now encased in some crude scaffolding as some restoration is underway. It out of the way and not really worth the effort to get out here with the restoration going on.

    This temple is not on the typical small or Grand circuit of Angkor temples. It is considered part of the complex and your Angkor Archeological Park ticket will work to gain access to the site. It is out of the way but worth the effort to get out there and visit. The temple is completely restored and very impressive.The most unique feature about...

Being that Ta Prohm was constructed around the 12 century, they hardly had the technology to determine what a Stegosaurus looked like even if they unearthed some dinosaur bones. Others believe is is a Rhinoceros with...

    GrumpyDiver told me that when his group was at Beng Mealea in March 2009 that they were the only ones there. When we visited in February 2010 that was not the case. It was not even close to being as crowded as the Angkor temple complex, but there were plenty of people visiting. I have included some pictures of them. Also, the south walkway video...

    Phumi Boeng Mealea Things to Do

    Wikipedia has a drawing that outlines a walking tour, but we added more locations on the east side, back (north) and west side. The beginning of the tour is a set of wooden stairs to the right of the unrestored, impassable south gate. The walking tour mostly follows a boardwalk that was originally constructed during the filming of the movie, Two...

  • West Gate of Outer Wall

    Phumi Boeng Mealea Things to Do

    We did not try to go inside through the West Gate. We just went under its platform and continued south. Actually there was a huge building just to the west of the platform. From the Beng Mealea diagram it is the same shape as a structure on the east side. The East Gate was the main entrance in ancient times but is now closed due to dangerous...
