War Museum

Our last day in Cambodia was short so we planned a short activity for the morning before heading to the airport.  We decided that the War Museum would be a good stop.   The best thing about visiting this museum was the guide.  He told us all about his life and experiences in Cambodia.   We left feeling kind of down.   We all know that war is ugly and our visit to this museum reminded  us of that. 

More from Cambodia

We visited a few more temples on our second day in Siem Reap.  Here they are in photos!

Neak Poam

Preah Khan This temple was really cool, and very vast.  It was definitely labyrinth like.  I got turned around at least once.  I think it was symmetrical and so it was hard to tell which way you'd come or were going because it was all so similar.  

Elephant Terrace & Baphuon Temple This was the LAST temple & site we saw.  I loved the elephant terrace, such cool features; and it's really amazing how everything is still in tact and standing today.  

East Maybon

East Maybon was the second temple we saw on the second day.  Besides Bayon and Angkor Wat, it was probably my favorite.  The thing I remember most about it was how HIGH up it was.  The top of this temple was extremely high. The boys were way up there and I was so worried that they'd fall off the edge.
