Cambodia is supposed to be a dangerous place, but let me tell you that if you go to Siem Reap, you won't feel in danger at all. They are going to have a total of 2 million visitors this year and that number makes perfect sense once you see Angkor area.
I was expecting the worse from Siem Rep, but I was so wrong! The airport was organized and everyone spoke understandable English, even the taxi drivers, I was offered to go to my hotel by motorcycle or by car, fixed prices, no need to bargain and worry about being over charged. The hotels are relatively cheaper than the rest of Asia and the service is really good.
I visited several temples; Angkor Thom, Preah Khan, Ta Prohm, and finally Angkor Watt, I have no words to explain how wonderful that place is, every temple has something unique and magical, so much history behind every temple and the stories I was told, the stories form the walls in the temples, were amazing. Have you watched Tomb Raider, the movie? It was filmed in Angkor Area. I have some cool pictures to show.
I want to come back with my family, specially my grandmother and my mother, they would love it. Angkor area was Hindu and then it switch several times to Buddhism and back. Right now it's a Buddhist temple. The cool thing about this is that you get figures and architecture from both religions.
I met a friend of mine in the top of one of the temples, it was very fun and unexpected. I saw a little boy playing around in the Angkor Watt temple and made me feel sad about the poverty of the country, but at the same time, you could see that he didn't need any expensive toys to have some fun, just his imagination.
I took a tuk tuk back to the hotel, again, the driver was very nice and spoke English too.
