Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia

I don't have much time because we are sitting here eating breakfast at our hotel, the Pavillon Indochine, eating breakfast. Today we go out to the Tonle Sap for a boat ride and then later to seldom visited Beng Melea temple, but I wanted to post some pictures from yesterday. We visited the well known, Angkor Wat, where we saw many monks. We shot the huge stone heads at Bayon and photographed a beautiful Apsara dancer, and later in the day we visited Preah Khan another amazing, yet less visited temple. Enjoy the images

I read a book about Laos and it mentioned the Pok Au caves where the Pathet Lao holed up during the uprisings in the 70s. If I remember correctly, the book even mentioned an entire villa built inside the caves.
