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:
