Cambodia- Beyond Siem Reap

On our third day after ditching our guide we hired a driver for the day and went to

Preah Kahn
Beng Mealea
Koh Ker

I would definitely recommend anyone going to
Siem Reap to take the time to
get out of the Angkor Wat complex and see some of the temples
further away
(it was about a 3 hour drive to koh ker, and 2 hours between each destination)

We loved the fact that here we had the temples
all to ourselves.

The atmosphere was completely different,
i felt more connected with the temples and nature
and it felt more historic and not like

Beng Mealea was by far Tim's favourite
the guides show where you can climb all over the ruins,
he felt just like Indiana Jones. 

(my pictures werent actually fuzzy,
i think my crappy internet connection has just 
uploaded them that way...


  1. I'm so glad you got to spend time outside of Siem Reap. Cambodia outside of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap is SO different. It's cool to see these temples, I was never able to make it out there.

  2. I'm happy to see you posting about adventures again! I was beginning to miss them, but then I have to remind myself your internet access is far from convenient :)
