Siem Reap – Angkor Wat

In Cambodia most visitors come to see the temples of Angkor and for that travel to this place called Seam Reap. I must admit  that I never heard of the place before, but soon I knew it was the place from where it was close to get to see the temples. 
In Seam Reap itself are allot of tourists and tuk tuks seem to ride in the streets around the clock, the traffic never stops, vibrant town it sure is. There is a street called pubstreet, one bar after another, music comming out to the streets where streetvendors try to sell some souvenirs or food to the tourist.
I visited the Angkor Wat Temple,The Bayon Temple at Angkor Thom,Tha Prohm and Banteay Srei.
The most famous Temple is Angkor Watt and I started my visit in the early morning to see the sunrise over Angkor Watt on the riverside.
The old corridors, ancient carvings and steep steps to the upper level from which you can see over the temple complex and its area, makes this temple so special.
