Cambodia - Angkor Wat temples

Smiley faceJune, 2019

The part of the temple complex that interested me was Ta Prohm which has the banyan trees embedded in the rocks of the buildings. They are destroying the buildings. They have made great efforts to keep the banyan trees established but reinforce the structure so that it doesn't collapse. The buildings create dark shadows which make high contrast with the beating, glaring sun. It makes it hard to get a good camera exposure. Also the flora growth on the stones darkens the surface of the stones and absorbs light. Some of the photos show the extremely steep staircases.

Tickets are expensive to enter the park. You can get a room in town for $2.50 a night, but the one day entrance fee is $32 I believe. A three day ticket sets you back about $63. They prefer to get US dollars. Most places list prices in dollars. It was rare to see prices in Cambodian riel.
