Even if every one’s picture of a white Christmas is frolicking in the snow, achieving this is quite difficult in the southern hemisphere. Hence why I have funnelled my holiday itinerary towards our neighbours in the tropics. Summer is the time to avoid massive toggery anyway. No need to wear three layers of consumerism. It also makes being #minimalistic (which I noticed is becoming a real trend these days) too easy.
We landed Cambodia on Christmas Eve and I knew visiting Angkor Wat, where we greeted the sunrise on Christmas day, was implacable. But if there was another place to visit, it would be the fame of Lara Croft that put this temple on the map of every traveller’s bucket list.
Ever since Tomb Raider came out, the world wanted to see Ta Prohm, this heritage site tucked in the quaint resort town of Siem Reap.
Angkor Thom (and The Bayon Temple)
Angkor Thom, on the other hand, was vast not enveloped by the flora that surrounded it.
