Goofing Around the Angkor Wat Ruins


Angkor Wat Ruins cannot be reached

When every one else were following tour guides or trying to explore the temple in groups, we simply took our time and explored the temples of Angkor Wat on our own. After seeing the movie Slumdog Millionaire, it gave me the idea of just following tour guides or sticking close to one so that I can eavesdrop on the history of a certain place that I will visit in the future.

So, amidst all those huge blocks, my friend and I found the time to goof around a certain area in the temple.

Pardon the picture quality since the digicam I borrowed from a friend got busted on the morning we arrived in the Angkor Wat temple. At first I thought that the photos could be salvaged after a couple of tweaks using photo editing tools so I still took shots but I was wrong. Everything got exposed…everything that will remind us of the tour of the temples of Angkor. Goodbye to the $20 I paid for that 1-day tour. There were still a couple of photos that I can tweak like the one on top but it would really be a tedious task if I do so. This was also probably the reason why I am documenting this tour after almost two years. hehehe. Well, let’s see if I can still recall what happened during that time.

As for Angkor Wat, everything is simply majestic (probably not as majestic as Taj Mahal) but the other kind. I was really mesmerized by the whole place that I vowed to return here someday to claim my photos. My friend on top thinks otherwise. To him, Siem Reap was boring compared to the bustling city of Bangkok that awaited our return the moment we landed in the Suvarnabhumi Airport. I can’t really blame him for he is such a part-goer and would prefer the city life than this side of the country.

Next year, if all goes as planned, I’ll be going back to this place to experience more of Angkor Wat and Siem Reap.

We only stayed here for 2 nights. If not for my friend’s desire to see Patpong, my other friend and I would have stayed here for 1 more day to explore the city.
