Siem Reap: Temples and People

More than the temples, what fascinates me are the people inside it; locals, tourists, merchants, temple guards and caretakers. These people bring this organic feel to the place; they give soul to the temples. And with that, lemme share to you some 'people' photos taken during our temple tours in Siem Reap.

Templed Out Siem Reap – The Grand Tour

Still nursing our hangover from Pub Street the temple tours the day before, me and my buddy started the day early by buying some French bread and Iced coffee from the nearby market - our breakfast for that day.

Templed Out Siem Reap – Angkor Group and the Small Tour

French speaking local tourist guide with his flock in tow greeted us as we entered the first temple for the day. And in pure admiration (and astonishment) I told him how great he was. He said that he’s been doing this for so long and that there are many local guides who speak different major languages. Amazing!

Templed Out Siem Reap – Rolous Group of Temples

Temple run, Templed out, Temple overload, Temple pass; too much temples to explore and so little time. This templed out edition is part of a three-day love affair with Khmer temples in Siem Reap. After exploring some of the major temples in three days, I must say that Siem Reap is much more than the Angkor Wat.

Kampong Phluk’s Floating Village and Forest - Siem Reap, Cambodia

Do you wanna swim on the lake?
Huh? I can?

That was our boat driver urging me and my buddy to jump into the Tonle Sap Lake. As if knowing my love affair with waters, he gave his most convincing grin that set me off to his crazy idea (totally forgetting that I’m not wearing my bikinis).

Angkor Tropical Resort – Siem Reap, Cambodia

Four days and three nights in Siem Reap; we needed to find the perfect place to chill after our temple runs and food trips around the city. The perfect place that would give us the local vibe of Siem Reap.
