    Absolutely breathtaking photos! What an incredible experience and real-life adventure! I want to go! I wonder if they filmed any of the Indiana Jones movies there. Thank you so much for sharing those photos, can't wait for the Burma experience!

    Wonderfull! What an interesting read and photo tour. I'd love to visit this place sometime. Some of the wall carvings in the begining of the update remind me a lot of Mara.

    Hello , Alain Littaye, here. No , dear "gotodisneyland", they didn't film any Indiana Jones movie here, BUT, i've heard that they did filmed some scenes of the "Lara Croft" movie there, in the Ta Prohm temple. And glad you've loved the photos. If one day you can do it, go in Angkor, you will love it!

    Hi Alain! Thanks to having heard your many passionate recollections of Angkor, and getting some good tips on what to do when there, I finally visited it this last summer. What a fantastic and awe-inspiring place! I would describe it to Mouse fans as "Walt Disney World meets Indiana Jones" with 50 square miles of intriguing and mysterios temples, fantastic hotels ranging from quaint to luxurious, a transporation system of wonderful "tuk-tuks," and great food, people and art (fantastic local art community too).

    At Ta Phrom Temple, a local kid asked me if I wanted "the Lara Croft Tour," he then (for a modest tip) proceeded to take me to every shoot location at the temple! Too much information, but an interesting way to see it none-the-less.

    I have never taken so many photos in my entire life, every step revealing another intriguing angle, shadowy stone face or grand vista.

    Thanks again, Alain, for inspiring my visit to this very awe-inspiring place!

    Alain, thanks for the tour! It really is astounding how much work went in the building of Angkor. Chalk on up for on a list of places to visit!
