Cambodia lies entirely within the tropics, its low-lying central plain bordered by low mountains and uplands. In its transitional plains, forested elevations are found as the landscape extends outwards. And it is in these geographical changes that you will find some magnificent temples, royal palaces and other ancient architectural marvels by which to be enthralled.
Despite centuries of political turmoil, depredation and horrors of war, this nation stands as yet another testimony to the essence of endurance, a vital spirit of the human condition. Not only is its culture rich in lowland ethnic majority but also in its diverse hill tribes. In its enchanting landscapes, Cambodia has temples and beaches that attract seekers of raw elegance.
Meanwhile, renowned for the Angkor Wat ruins, Siem Reap is a province in which ancient temples exist amidst natural geographical beauty.
Like most Asian countries, Cambodia too comprises centuries of history in its varying terrains. So you may breathe its air, bathe in its light, and return with many memories to fill you travel memoirs.
What to see and photograph:
Trip to Thailand and Cambodia will begin at New Delhi Airport. Buddhist monasteries there will make for interesting photography subjects and kindle your vision and imagination, coaxing you gently into making evocative images.
Dedicated to Shiva, the pink limestone walls containing the best bas reliefs of any temple at Angkor, Banteay Srey will charm you. The wooden houses on tall stilts in Kampong Kleang are a delight to watch. At the Tonlé Sap Lake, floating houses and people’s way of living are some amazing details you would want to record as photographs.
The magnificent remains of the Khmer Empire, the Angkor Archaeological Park will be a breathtaking encounter visually, architecturally and artistically. Explore and photograph the hidden temples, temples of Bayon, Baphoun and Terrace of Elephants and The Leper King. Visit the main temple, Angkor Wat, which is arguably the main reason many visit Cambodia.
In the remains of Roluos Group of Temples, the first major capital of the Angkorian-era Empire, visit the Lolei, Preah Ko and Bakong temples. In Bakong temple area, the largest and the most interesting of the Roluos Group of Temples, there is still an active Buddhist monastery.
