The Big Loop

Temples, Temples and more Temples

On the map, there are two distinct loops throughout the temples. On my first day I continued around the outer loop with the most space between temples because I had a TukTuk driver and guide with me to drive between the long distances. I stopped to eat lunch at a small stand after leaving Angkor Thom, and continued to climb and explore temples all day.

I saw all sorts of artwork at the temples, from painting, sketches and even beautiful traces of the carvings. I wanted to take all of them home with me, but I had zero room left and couldn't fit them anywhere.


My first day at the Temples was over 12 hours long. Starting at Angkor Wat at sunrise and going until sunset was exhausting. But I would not have traded this experience for the world. My visit to the Angkor Temples was the most rewarding and inspiring thing I did in my time in Asia, and I had two more days to spend in Cambodia before my trip home.
