Stunning, Enduring Beauty of Angkor Wat, Cambodia I overheard a fellow traveller once refer to the famous Temples at Angkor Wat as "ancient ruins." I bridled upon hearing them described as "ruins." Ancient though they are (they were built between 802 and 1220 AD) and bearing scars of a civil war and decades of neglect, the Temples of Angkor Wat are breath-takingly beautiful, especially at dawn. To walk among the temples and towers outside the town of Siem Reap, as I did back in 2007, is to walk among the gods. Okay, I'm being dramatic, but you get my drift. This week's Friday Travel Photo was taken by Steve Mackay, a Chief Experience Officer with Gap Adventures, the well-known Canadian adventure tour company.
