Siem Reap - Adoring History
Welcome to Siem Reap, the gateway to the ancient city of Angkor. The city’s historic center is vivacious with French architecture. The upper-story windows are long and graceful, topped with arching glass, and decorated with wooden shutters. The scent of fresh baguettes and pressed coffee are exhilarating. Away from the central market, you find the township alongside the Siem Reap River. Cows draw large carts often filled with produce, from lettuce to bananas. The combination of traditional culture and modern luxury abounds.
Your private transfer meets you at the airport and takes you to your gorgeous hotel. After you check-in, your private guide will escort you to the Small Circuit of temples that will introduce you to the famous Khmer Empire. Ta Prohm reached cinematic fame in the movie Tomb Raider, with Angelina Jolie. Space continues to enthrall with its romantic display of nature overtaking manmade structures. The 12th-century temple sits in the jungle, surrounded by fertile grass, towering ficus, and silk trees.
You find private niches and hidden corners that make you feel like you’ve stumbled upon your own romantic temple. At the eastern entrance pavilion, you find tree roots wrapping around the stone and almost covering the rotunda. The tree stands tall on the support of the edifice as the forest reclaims the structure. Thirty-nine separate towers continue to rise above the jungle. Jayavarman faces decorate the entrance gates; the slight smiles have intrigued archeologists for centuries. The balance of nature and civilization is stunning. The image is nothing less than romantic.
