Angkor Wat

Four years ago, Michael my husband and I got married here in Wolfenbüttel's Standesamt. That was on 4th of November 2005. But this entry is not about our wedding or maybe yes, some part of it. We decided before our wedding we will spend our honeymoon trip in some parts of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. I never been to Laos and Cambodia that time, but in Thailand we travelled before way back 2003. I was so excited because Michael said Angkor Wat is really an interesting temple. I will share our trip in Thailand and in Laos later.


After travelling in some places in Thailand and Laos, we are finally in Cambodia.


Cambodia - also called Kampuchea, with a population of about 14 million, Siem Reap is the capital city. The people are working mostly in farms and rice fields. Angkor Wat is the country's pride, for it is the world's most or best preserved temple and it became one of the Wonders of the World.

  2. Siem Reap, Angkor Wat, is my next destination, if possible. I have planned so many, but always stops by time limitation.

  5. Car, I love your photos, those temples are beautiful! The huge roots look creepy but interesting. Inviting, makes me want to see Cambodia. When we were in Thailand, we found out that WAT means temple. You are really privileged to have seen those wonderful places (and more)
