The Angkor Temples

The long wait is finally over! My yellow backpack has finally landed the beautiful Kingdom of Cambodia!

Back in primary school the only thing I knew about Cambodia is Angkor Wat, nothing else. I didn’t know their were a lot of temples in Cambodia, face palm. 🙂 And I clearly remember, my 11 year old self dreamt of seeing  the beauty of Angkor Wat before my very own eyes. Back then, it was only a dream.

Fast forward to 2016, I found myself searching for cheap flights and cheap hotels (both Siem Reap and Phnom Penh) for our Cambodia trip. Finally. Flights booked. Hotels booked. Packing done. Leaves approved. And just like that I found myself in the beautiful country of Cambodia. Dreams do come true, I say. 🙂

I didn’t do much research on which places to visit, as I was so sure that I will only visit the Angkor Temples, for our 2 days stay in Siem Reap, I didn’t even booked for a tour guide. 🙂 Luckily, when we arrived in Siem Reap we met a very kind and accommodating tuk-tuk driver.

I don’t want to take so much of your time, so please scroll down, as I am sharing some of the photos we took during our temple hopping in Siem Reap.

Angkor Temples, Cambodia by oncolouredpens




















My yellow backpack says, THANK YOU SIEAM REAP, CAMBODIA!!! It was indeed a dream come true seeing Angkor Wat before my very own eyes. All the Angkor Temples are very beautiful, my personal favourites are Angkor Wat and Bayon Temple.

For those who are planning to visit Cambodia, I personally recommend the tuk-tuk driver we met, his name is Mr. Ne, you can contact him through Facebook. I highly recommend Mr. Ne, as he is very familiar with all the temples and their respective histories.


Hello, I’m Chloe and welcome to my space! I write random stuff. I take random photos. Sometimes I do technical writing. 🙂 I’m an animal lover (dogs and cats particularly) I love taking random photos of stray cats. I love books. I don’t have a particular book genre to read. I’m a huge fan of Mitch Albom and John Grisham, btw. I’m also into KDramas. KPOp, sometimes. I don’t have a proper training for writing, I just love to write down random things that pops up from my head. 🙂 This page is a work-in-progress. YAH bless you every day! P.S I love memes of dogs and cats.
