Day 106 to 110 Superfantastic Siem Reap in Cambodia

Majestic Angkor Wat

20161012_134704Oh myyyy! What an incredible journey we have had in Siem Reap! Our top priority was of course Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and Bayon. Still we also got to visit the nearby floating village (where people lived in their homes on the river/lake) and the national war museum. In addition to get to see and visit all these fantastic places we also got to try out the local massage (niiiiice) and to see the night market. Riding the Tuk-tuk made our hot bodies get a rest during the very hot days. Angkor Wat is the largest religious temple in the world. It was originally built as a Hindu temple under the Khmer empire but was gradually transformed into a Buddhist temple. It was originally designed as the Mount Meru, the home of the Hindu Gods. Angkor Thom was the last capital of the Khmer empire and covers an area of 9 km 2. Inside this city is situated Bayon (“the four faced temple”). Such a beauty and fantastic handicraft…

  1. Frogs are eaten in Canada. NOt frequent, but eaten.
    However, for the “rats” are they considered day-to-day type food? Or, is it considered a delicacy?

    • Well, I do not think rats are considered a delicacy… I think they are more a day-to-day type of food for the peasants/inhabitants in Cambodia. There are lots of them and not too expensive… 🙂
