Visiting Siem Reap has been on my list quite some times. I tried several times to go there and cancelled airline tickets once before I actually went there last week. I would love to explore the whole Cambodia including Phnom Penh, but having only several days, I focused my trip on exploring the only thing that has been on my mind, Angkor Temples.
Although Angkor Temples in Siem Reap were popularized by Tomb Raider movie, I was first caught its glimpse on the game in my old Nokia cellphone several years ago. I don’t even remember what’s the name of the game, but in order to win the game, I need to collect diamonds in many places and one of them is Angkor Wat. But of course, it wasn’t until I saw the giant tree and its root coming out from old temple ruins that I was mesmerized and open the calendar to plan the trip.
