Dawn Over Angkor complex

The morning of the New years day 2015 found us watching the pink and purple sunrise from Phnom Bakheng, a temple on a hill overlooking the Angkor Wat complex.

On the whole this has been a very good day. On this day we:

  • Watched the sun rise over the Angkor Wat archeological park
  • Rode on on elephant at Angkor Thom.
  • Visited several other ancient temples
  • Watched an Apsara dance performance.
  • Received some sad news, which will take quite a bit to process

Angkor Wat Complex

Today we visited the Angkor Wat temple complex. We spent several hours wandering around the temple grounds, taking in the sights and taking pictures.

It deserves a post all of its own, and that will come soon.

Here is the view of the outer walls of the main temple site.
