2012/08/09 - 2012/08/12 吳哥窟之旅 / Angkor Wat Tour

2012 年八月九日至十二日,我陪同我的侄子旅遊世界著名的「吳哥窟」 (暹粒,柬埔寨)。

我們八月九日晚上到達暹粒,住在吳哥王子酒店。第二天,我們參觀「吳哥窟」(印度教寺廟)。然後到「白永寺」(佛寺)。 下午我們去「塔普倫」寺,俗稱為古墓麗影寺廟,因為這是印第安納瓊斯電影古墓麗影拍攝的地方。

「吳哥窟」宏偉的建築使人敬畏。而它古老技術的卓爾不群使現代技術至蒙羞。

第二天,我們去享受乘船沿洞裡薩湖,那裡是著名的浮村所在。所有的房子,即使是天主堂,都是浮動的。由於湖水水位在一年中 不同時間會上升或下降,所以房子必須浮在水面上。他們沒有電,所以他們使用電池。他們在他們水上房子裡甚至可以看電視!

Last August 9 - 12, 2012, I accompanied my nephew for a tour of the world famous Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

We arrived in Siem Reap in the evening of August 9 and stayed at the Prince D'Angkor Hotel & Spa. The next day we visited Angkor Wat proper (Hindu Temple) and then to Bayon, Angkor Wat complex (Buddhist Temple). In the afternoon we went to Ta Prohm popularly known as the Tomb Raider temples because this was the shooting location of the Indiana Jones' movie Tomb Raider.

One is left in awe at its architectural grandeur and its ancient technology puts modern technology to shame.

The next day, we went and enjoyed a boat ride along Tonle Sap Lake where the famous Floating Village is located. All houses, even a Catholic Church, are all floating. Since the water level in the lake goes up and down during different times of the year, the houses have to float on the water. They do not have electricity, but they do have batteries and they can even watch TV inside their floating houses!
