Re: From my recent trip to Cambodia

Thank you Fotogeorge and welcome to the forum. I did not see any McDonald's or Starbucks. I agree tasting the food in that restaurant could have told another story. Or even at one of the several Indian restaurants. Even the local restaurants we visited offered a variety of non Cambodian items (e.g. ...

Re: From my recent trip to Cambodia

Here is an example of the collaboration with India. BTW, this is the only place I have seen an overt display of collaboration information. At Ta Prohm. I think the image has enough resolution to zoom in and read the text. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2492/32928075141_e73cecf9c3_b.jpg This is the ph...

Re: From my recent trip to Cambodia

Yildiz, Thank you and the link is appreciated. It is a pity that such actions are taken. I have seen it quite often in India too. Unfortunately, it is often too late we realize the severity of these actions. On a positive note, Siem Reap province seems to be very proactive in preserving and even res...

Re: From my recent trip to Cambodia

Thank you Andy. Ta Phrom. More info. at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ta_Prohm . This temple was in Lara Croft Tomb Raider and since then it has been called Angelina Jolie temple. In fact, I have heard people refer to Angelina Jolie temple, a travesty. It is amazing how the trees have taken over the...

Re: Show us PORTRAITS

Very nice shot, Henry. I am getting inspired by the B&W theme here.
Gotta try my hand.

On the lighter side.... The ubiquitous touching nose photo. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/278/32039944443_b65c154d84_b.jpg This is as common as many Tower of Pisa photos with tourists "pushing" the tower straight. Like this one https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/287/20202630895_b6b9ef678e_b.jpg

Moving on to the next iconic temple Bayon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayon This temple has quite a few towers with 2 - 4 faces on each tower.

Re: From my recent trip to Cambodia

Thank you Jeff and Andy. Jeff, no we did not try the Mexican or other familiar (American/Italian) food. Stayed with local options throughout including (Angkor Beer). Siem Reap province gets 90% of its revenue from tourism. Since I visited only Siem Reap, my observation is based on that stay. Right f...

From my recent trip to Cambodia

Couple of weeks ago I was in India to attend the wedding of my niece (some photos shortly) and on our way back to US, we took a 3 day detour to visit Siem Reap, Cambodia. Siem Reap is one of most tourist friendly places, on par with Peru and Costa Rica, IMHO. Very budget friendly place where one can...

Re: Weather Today-In Your Vicinity/2017

Thanks Sury. Btw, when you were in Peru did you go to Lake Titicaca? I remember the Cusco/Machu Picchu photos but not the Puno/Lake Titicaca shots. Maybe I just missed them. Or more likely, I commented on them and then lost my mind sometime later. :D I think it is more like you losing your mind, Je...
