April 2009 – Siem Reap, Cambodia
You should not miss visiting the Ta Prohm temple in Cambodia. I have 3 reasons for saying this:
First, Angkor Wat is one of the 7 wonders of the world. If you’re just going to spend your day in the hotel because it’s hot and dusty in Cambodia, why not exempt a day in Angkor Wat? You dont want to miss one of the distinct places of Mother Earth. Would you? Second, Te Prohm temple is one of the locations of Tomb Raider movie. You may not be a Jolie’s fan but you can ask yourself, “What does this temple has that a hollywood movie flew thousand miles just to shoot some scenes? Third, this temple has Tetrameles nudiflora. What’s that? It is a tree and a specie of Tetramelaceae that has ruined the Ta Phrom temple into broken structures because of its huge roots. This specie can be seen in other countries but not all of them have grown to immense proportions of height and width. You’re going to love those roots once you’ve seen it.
