Siem Riep is one of the most beautiful villages I’ve ever visited. The warm air, the serene atmosphere, the ancient temples and the gracious people who have very little, yet they exude so much kindness – makes this a unique and special cultural destination. The temple complex of Angkor Wat is fascinating to see. It is vast, sturdy, intricately designed, and it’s a mystery how it was built. Not surprisingly, the most intriguing temple for me was the temple of Ta Prom with a tree growing above the temple and the roots wrapped around its edges. Most people recognize this temple from the movie Tomb Raider, but it is truly an incredible sacred experience to see it in person.
