Discover the amazing CAMBODIA in 25 pictures

Probably you already heard and knew that Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world. But Cambodia is much more than just Angkor Wat. There are so many fascinating things to do and see while in Cambodia, such as the amazing ruins, ancient temples, jaw dropping landscapes and so much history to discover.

Even though Cambodia has a horrific past,  the people are warm and very welcoming and will be proud to show their home country to you.  I hope you enjoy a trip to this amazing country through my photos!

Sunrise in Angkor Wat is definitely one of the most incredible experiences, as the colors and shades change creating a living canvas in front of your eyes

The Temple of Banteay Srei was my favorite. It is a thousand year old temple located one hour way from Siem Reap by car or tuk tuk
The Banteay Srei temple contains the finest, most intricate carvings to be found in Angkor.
Temple of Ta Phrom - just amazing how the trees grow directly on the buildings
It is fascinanting to see how powerful nature is

Temple of Baphuon is located in Angkor Thom. Built in the mid-11th century, it is a three-tiered temple mountain built as the state temple dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva.
What makes the Temple of Pre Rup different is because it is made with brick, laterite and sandstone, hence its reddish glow.
