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:

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 :
