Mighty Angkor

2/20/2009

The sights in Asia that attract most visitors are The Great Wall of China and the temple ruins of Angkor outside of Siem Reap in Cambodia. The Angkorian Empire reached its height during the 12th century, when the capital city was probably the largest in the world, with approximately one million inhabitants.

The key to the high culture was the ability to irrigate which enabled several rice harvests per year.

The most famous ruin is Angkor Wat, city temple. If you don’t have a specialist interest, it’s enough visiting this temple as well as Angkor Tom and Ta Prohm – after a few hours the ruins have a tendency of all looking the same. Att Ta Prohm, which we liked best, they’ve been very careful with the clearance and the trees’ huge roots continue to cling on to the stones.

The entrance fee to Angkor is 20 US dollars. The best way to get round the area (we measure the distances in kilometres here!) is to hire a tuk-tuk driver, who normally based around the hotels or guest houses in Siem Reap. The hire fee is about 12-15 US dollars per day.

Cambodia’s currency is the Riel. 5,000 Riel are the equivalent of about 10 SEK. However, they use the Dollar as a currency parallel to their own, which Westerners will make use of 90% of the time. Make sure you get a wad of small denominations in addition to the larger ones from FOREX Bank!
