The City of Temples " Angkor Wat "

Siem Reap, Angkor Wat "City Of Temples"

Hi guys! Just as I promised you from my last post, I'll share to you all how magnificent Siem Reap is. This photos was taken when me and my family went on a vacation tour to Siem Reap,Cambodia. The whole trip was so much fun and full of wonderful views. I would say that this place is the most amazing place I've been to so far!
Siem Reap has the largest Hindu temple and the most number of temples in one province. That is why they call it "The City of Temples" or from the famous name Angkor Wat.
So here's the temples we went to.
here's a link for you guys of the temples we visited...

 If you think this photos were awesome just imagine how much more awesome it is if you were seeing it with your own eyes. You'll have unexplained feelings just as I did. You'll definitely feel you're in a different world, different time. Until now the memories of this places and temples still lingers on and on and on...

I wanted to capture all the tourists that came to witness this magnificent temple. This is not even close to half of the people who came here. This was taken at Angkor Wat 5:30 am. Yes! You read it right 5:30 in the morning. You might ask what are they looking at... hmmmm...Photobucket Photobucket
This is what they are looking at... See how beautiful it is. Every one of us woke up pretty early just to witness this breath taking view! The sun is almost rising, and lights start feeling up the place. Look how beautiful the colors of the sky. If you are a photographer you know why we what to take photos at this time of the day. We call this the magical hour. The lights is subtle, soft and everything is calm. Perfect to take photos! And I'm so happy I captured that moment. Best to take photos at sunrise and sunset...

Some of you may know that this place and temples was also the same place Angelina Jolie shot the movie "Tomb Raider". The temple you saw with big trees and vines " Ta Prohm Temple" (top photo) is one of the location. Some even call this place "The Land of Tomb Raider" ahahahaha..
We couldn't resist goofing around and mimicking Lara Croft's action poses. So here's our photos posing everywhere, goofing and having loads of fun!!
