Even though I rode an elephant around Angkor Thom. I wish I rented a motorcycle for that day but I think it’s necessary to get a tour guide that would explain to you all the all the engravings and the statues or why there are random stones laying around. If I were to check out Angkor myself, I guess it would’t be the same or I guess that’s what listening to an audio tour or a podcast is for.
One can’t do Angkor for one day but this was our last day in Siem Reap and I think we covered a lot of ground. There will be a lot of walking and make sure you bring water. I didn’t have any water on me until after Ta Prohm.
Anyways, this is Ta Prohm — nicknamed the “Tomb Raider Temple”. On the way into Ta Prohm, you’ll see musicians sitting along the side of the walkway — they’re landmine survivors. They may have lost their limbs but they still have their lives and they make a living as musicians.
