Tourists @ Angkor

“Mountain People Mountain Rocks” would be a new phrase to describe the flood of tourists overflowing at every tunnels and every roads in side the Angkor Archaeological Park. Luckily we decided to engage an experienced local guide to swim against the traffic. So we managed to cut down 95% of the tourists during our visit to Angkor (Siem Reap).

Having the 5% tourist could make a difference to travel picture with dead object and scenery without human or other live subject.

That gives you a sense of clothing and style other tourists were wearing during the winter (dry) season in Siem Reap.

If you like to visit the temple tower inside Angkor Wat, make sure you wear long pants and less revealing attire. Shorts have to cover knee, and spaghetti T-shirt, tripods were not allowed. Some ladies have to wait for their boyfriend or husband to take off their shirt so that they could visit the temple. It is general respect for local culture and religion.

Some tourists were creative. 扮扑街。

Some paid detail attention to the explanation guide. This local visitor patiently read out every single words in the writing. It took her few minutes to finish. I have even more patient than her, because I am standing beside her listening to her reading. Smile
