Many of the temples around Angkor have not been fully restored and often have trees growing out of them at bewildering angles. Nature and man-made structures are competing to see who will stand the longest. So far it’s been 800 years and I think the trees are winning…
If you have seen Tomb Raider some of it was filmed in Ta Prohm, one of these “jungle temples”. It was the perfect adventure playground for Dylan too. Torch in hand, he ran and climbed rocks and trees exploring the dark halls and narrow passageways.
After Ta Prohm we continued to the Angkor Thom complex and visited Bayon, the main temple here. The South gate entrance was stunning and the temple is full of detail.
We hired a tuk tuk to get around for the day and soon discovered that this is the only vehicle Jonas doesn’t constantly ball in. We might have to get one in England
