Week 1 Continued

We left the capital city and drove for an entire day to Siem Reap, which is a quickly growing city north of Phnom Penh. In Siem Reap we visited many temples including Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, Neak Poan and Bayon. It was so interesting to learn the history of these ancient 12th century temples. I was lucky enough to visit Angkor Wat at sunrise. Personally, my favorite temple to visit was Bayon. There was a bridge with a bunch of statues lining each edge, interestingly some of them were missing heads, or looked like their heads had been replaced. At the end of the bridge, there was a tower with 4 stone faces in each direction. Bayon also had tons of interesting carvings that our guide told us about. Most of them were battles fought by the king of the Khmer empire.
