  6. Traveling Ted says:

    You cannot tour temples 24/7, so it is nice to have a guide for alternative activities after visiting Ankgor Wat in Siem Reap.

  7. This post really makes me miss SR. I visited 4 times on my last backpacking adventure in SE Asia.

  8. Your pics project a cleaner, more swept up image of Siem Reap than I remember from early 2008. I suppose it has developed very quickly.
