Angkor Wat, Day 1

How could we be so close and miss Angkor in Cambodia? (Especially with such cheap flights)

Everything about it is impressive: the size of the whole site, that it disappeared in the jungle for centuries, the strangeness of the buildings, and the beauty of the bas relief.

We hired bicycles and spent our first day visiting the closer temples.

One temple is laid out in perfect north / south east / west formation with a phallic statue at the centre (last photo).

 

Se trouver en Asie du sud-est sans aller à Angkor, au Cambodge semblait inconcevable (surtout avec des vols si bon marché).

Angkor est impressionnant par sa taille, sa situation dans la jungle, l’étrangeté des bâtiments et la beauté des bas-reliefs.

Nous avons loué des bicyclettes le premier jour et visité les temples les plus proches de la ville.

Un des temples, parfaitement aligné nord-sud-est-ouest a une statue phallique (selon le guide) au centre.
