While waiting to find time for a new ticket on my own travels, here is my latest travel video finder: 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've been there twice, a long time ago. And I'm going back! The beauty of the temples (especially the Bayon and Ta Phrom), the villages and the forest, the vastness of the site, which you could once roam at will with your nose to the wind, on a rented motorbike (or a bicycle, for the brave), made a strong impression on me.

Update : eh yes, I went back there, 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. Same thing, the pictures are on my little online gallery :

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

    Very nice video, thanks for sharing 🙂

    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. I just rewatched my time on Angkor in 2008 🙄 , thanks for this great video.

    I understand that you are missing Asia, I too am feeling blue, I just came back from 3 weeks in the Philippines (it was great)and I already want to go back 😥 , little level 1 has grown since Sipadan (thanks to you), after my AOW, I just passed my Nitrox 8) , next step: Rescue Diver 😀 .

    Your Blog is always so nice, have a good next trip 😉
