While waiting to find the time for a new ticket on my own travels, here is my latest find of traveling video: The Angkor Temple Experience.

The video

In just over 4 minutes, an express tour of the temples of Angkor, Cambodia. Superb restitution of the atmosphere, between pressed tourist crowd and luminous faces of the locals.

Angkor, I love ... A truly magical place, despite the tourist affluence.

I went there twice, a long time ago. And I will return! The beauty of the temples (especially the Bayon and the Ta Phrom), the villages and the forest, the vastness of the site, which one could go at one's pleasure with the nose in the wind, on a rented motorcycle (or a bicycle, for the brave ones), made a strong impression on me.

Update : Yes, I returned, a little less than a year after writing this post! See here :
Cambodia - February 2011

Memories in pictures

My first trip to Cambodia was in 2001. At the time, no digital photos. But I scanned my film and you can find some of these photos on my other site, Carnets d'Asie du Sud-Est (South-East Asian Diaries) :

My second trip to Cambodia took place in 2003. Like, the photos are on my small online gallery:

  1. Oh definitely, the technique of time-lapse is on the rise, I have the impression to see more and more!

    Très jolie vidéo, merci pour le partage 🙂

    And Angkor, mythical place if there is one!

    When do you come back to Asia?

  2. @Fabrice: I am sure that we can go back several times, tirelessly.

    @Thib: Yes, time-lapse is popular. What I appreciate in this video is that it is not permanent, it has a less "mechanical" side than in some other videos and it is well articulated with the breaks on the faces of small sellers of memories and Cambodians.
    I can not wait to return to Asia ... When exactly, I do not know too much. A trip in July, I hope.

  3. Ah! ... Cambodia, I'm dying for it. In reality I would like to make the triangle Vietnam / Laos / Cambodia. But I do not have enough time to prepare that. I loved China so much last year and Indonesia the previous years ...

  4. @Max: I do not know these islands of Vietnam ... An idea to dig, why not? The thing I miss is the time ...

    @Fabrice: 😉

    @A World Elsewhere: Yes, I have visited Vietnam several times, I have been to Cambodia twice, once in Laos, I would like to go back there ... Me the same, I miss the time !!! Good luck for your next trips, Marie-Ange.

  5. Deadly this video! The images of the Cambodians are superb: I find exactly the faces that I left a few years ago ... this corner of the planet (Southeast Asia) attracts me like a magnet, it's crazy. Same fight as you all: time ... I had also done a small editing but I was far from this sumptuous result.

  6. Je viens de revoir mon passage sur Angkor en 2008 🙄 , merci pour cette super vidéo.

    Je comprends que tu sois en manque d’Asie, moi aussi j’ai le cafard, je reviens tout juste de 3 semaines aux Philippines (c’était génial)et j’ai déjà envie de repartir 😥 , petit niveau 1 a grandi depuis Sipadan (grâce à toi), après mon AOW, je viens de passer mon Nitrox 8) , prochaine étape: Rescue Diver 😀 .

    Ton Blog est toujours aussi sympa, bon prochain voyage 😉
