Angkor wat.

Very first day of exploring town, I rent a bike and head up to Angkor wat. This bike ride was an adventure, (Read more here..) and Angkor wat itself was more than amazing.


I went back for bigger circle, so I will add more photos from my other day of visit. After all, that’s Angkor wat too. 🙂

Let’s cut to the chase..

Now, I introduce you Angkor wat.


Sunrise at Angkor wat.


At the ticket box. Bigger map.

After hard bike ride... there you are.

Everything is orange.

Delicate figures

More figures

Stiff! But worth it

Studying. Needed sometimes. It's overwhelming.

Little boy, wondering around.

How much green could you be?

Wishing at Angkor wat. Sounds about right.

Gate. End of Angkor wat.

Outside of Angkor wat

"Do you have some peanut?"

Wild building outside.


Mama and taxi driver.


Long way down

Dance away

Amazing place.

Love these columns.


Shining back ground.

Lots of headless statues

Columns on the wall.

Delivery boy

Angkor wat, good!

Photo shoot, can't miss it!

Angkor wat is under construction.

And a nap time.

Beautiful Angkor wat

Great day. I'm heading out.

    great shots woman! i particularly like the lighting on the “wishing” at angkor shot. I also like the monkey.. is that Cumi or Ciki? haha 😛

  2. LeslieTravel says:

    Great photos! Love the naughty monkey scratching his behind 🙂 Your post brings back the memories of my trip to Angkor Wat.

      Laughty indeed! 🙂 I tried to take unique photos not just boring but amazing Angkor wat. 🙂 Part of it, I can say succeed. 🙂

  3. Mary says:

    My favorite pic is the reflection. I also really enjoy the little boy in the big room.

  4. Simon says:

    What a lovely photo essay! I specially love the one of the little monk viewed from the back. Have to go to Cambodia soon…

  5. Sherry Ott says:

    Wow – it’s changed a bit since I was there 4 years ago – they actually built stairs with a railing! We had to climb up the crumbling original stairs!

    • Juno says:


      Haha that would’ve been awesome!! 🙂 Yes they built all wooden stairs inside and out. It ruins the view a little but at least it is much more convenient for sure.

  6. Stuart says:

    Great pics – difficult to take great pics of great monuments but the one of the monkey scratching its ass really cracks me up. Nice work!

    • Juno says:


      I actuall thought about that. It’s hard to get unique pictures at this well known-great histrocal features. Some shots came out right though. Monkey one was definately unique. 🙂 haha Thanks!

  7. Peter M says:

    Very nice photos. My very first visit to Angkor Wat will take place in January. I hope I can get some great photos and share them. Btw, only just discovered this blog via your tweet which was re-tweeted into my stream. Consider yourself bookmarked 🙂

  8. Nino says:

    This is one of the places I wanna see during my life time. And you have been here. Wow, Juno. You’re awesome 🙂

    • Juno says:


      Thanks! What a great compliment! Angkor wat was not on my list for a while actually, but I just went, and I’m glad I did that. Certainly worth it.

  9. What a wonderful blog you have! I’m following you and hope you can follow me as well. My travels start on October 5th. Best of luck and keep taking awesome photos!

  10. Meaghan says:

    your monk photo is gorgeous. i request a printed out one for christmas so that i can frame it and hang it in my home.

  11. ayngelina says:

    Nice jobs with the reflection shots, spot on!

  12. Norbert says:

    Angkor Wat is one of my top places to go. You took some really nice shots! Love em!

  13. Melvin says:

    Nice Angkor Wat photos! My favorite is the monk who is standing there watching out.

    The whole new site is very nice! Well done!

    • Juno says:

      Thanks! 🙂 Still need to some ‘optimization’ to do..
      Monk photo was one I was really hoping to get it. I could do better if he stayed there longer, but he left so quickly. Busy studying I guess. 🙂

  14. I love this place and I love the memories your photos brought up for me. Stunning photos Juno

  15. Jeff Dobbins says:

    Wow. Amazing. Just moved several notches up my “gotta see” list. Thanks for the inspiration.

  16. ChinaMatt says:

    I so desperately want to visit Cambodia. I hope I get there this spring.

  17. Jacek K says:

    What a nice place! I like places like that, just to walk, enjoy and to do a lot of photos 🙂

  18. I really love Angkor Wat – and the sunrise was really worth the torture of waking up early!
