Destination: Angkor, Cambodia



I am Lara Croft, Tomb Raider.

Most Destination posts get one photo, maybe two...but this one alone gets three. The Temples of Angkor in central Cambodia are seriously the most breathtaking thing I've seen on this trip. These temples were built between 900 and 1200AD. When the Irish were building castles, the Khmer (ethnic Cambodians) were building these absolutely magnificent temples. You owe it to yourself to take a look at these pictures.

FYI - Tomb Raider was filmed at the temple that I am standing next to in this photo. Indiana Jones' Temple of Doom was modeled after one of the Angkor temples.
