Hard Travel to Sacred Places is not only the name of a good book but an accurate description of what it took to finally get to Siem Reap, Cambodia. After last minute involuntary itinerary changes and 20 hours in the air I finally make it. Interesting that all my destinations started with an S: Seattle – San Francisco – Seoul – Siem Reap – and the Soria Moria Hotel!
The intense heat and humidity combined with a 15 hour time difference is quite an adjustment but it is all worth it when I finally get to feast my eyes on those amazing faces of the Bayon Temple.
Just how big are those faces?
Here is a photo with some tourists in it to give you some perspective.
