Travelling has always been one of my greatest pleasures in life, and visiting every country in the world is a dream which I’ll use my lifetime to fulfil.
In September 2015, I had the chance to visit one of the UNESCO World Heritage, Angkor Archeological Park located in Siem Reap, Cambodia!
The Park houses several important architecture from the Khmer Empire (9th to the 15th centuries). Though they may appear ruin-like, the magnificent structures do not fail to keep me in awe throughout my time spent there.
Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom are perhaps the most famous of the temples located in the Park. That said, tourists (myself included) are swarming these places, making them impossible to enjoy… or so I thought. Venturing deep into these temples, away from the crowd, there is much beauty and serenity waiting for you to find and explore.
I felt like an explorer, much like Lara Croft (neh, I don’t do raids), going around and discovering the faces looking afar, the sculptures and inscriptions on the walls, and at times, that perfect photo moment!
In the meantime, be Adventurous, be Brave, and be Curious!
