1st Day in Siem Reap! Angkor Wat babeh!

Hey Peeps!
i'm finally back from my Siem Reap trip
and finally have the time to blog a bit about it =)


so for those who didn't know
I've spent my Valentines & Chinese New Year at Siem Reap, Cambodia
as there was death which made CNY not celebrate-able
so it was decided that me, my mom & my sisters
went for a 4days 3 nights trip to Siem Reap
from the 13th-16th of February

We started our journey with Air Asia
as the tagline says: "everyone can fly"
so it wasn't so costly and we departed for a 2 hour flight to Siem Reap

At the LCCT Terminal
Sisters & I
Siem Reap Airport
Our transportation which is the Tuk tuk

so as we checked into the hotel
we headed out to Angkor Wat for sightseeing
We had to pay 20 USD as a fee to get into that place

1 thing that everyone gets mistaken on is
Angkor Wat is not only a temple
Its actually a GIGANTIC LOCATION
with plenty of temple ruins built by different Maharaja's
& also the biggest temple which is named Angkor Wat

i can't cover all the temples in this post
so i shall do it post by post =)

as for this post
i'll be about the main temple ruin Angkor Wat
my day pass
That is the bridge and walls in front of Angkor Wat
The Bridge to Angkor Wat

just imagine the number of slaves and workmen to just build this place
Hydra's lurking around the place
The Library near the main temple
Ponds of Water lilies near the temple
Now thats the main building of Angkor Wat itself!

The building is being fixed up
thats why those green nettings are there
carvings of what happened in the past

it stretches for more than a kilometer around and inside the temple
It mainly shows of heaven and hell
of Devatas (gods) and Asura's (devils)
and of course the famous
"Churning of the Sea"
bricks and pieces of rubble from the temple
The staircase to get into the temple
The onion shaped tower

so as we left the temple to go onwards to the next temple
we were able to see the bridge
which resembles:
"The Churning of the Sea"
The Asura's pulling the snake to churn the sea

So well thats all for this post=)
Shall update on the other temples soon
coming up next is the Bayon Temple

stay tuned!
