Cambodia – Angkor Thom | 柬埔寨 – 吳哥城

If you have seen Hayao Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky, you may agree that the fading floating castle in the animation movie is full of the shadow of the Ta Prohm Temple in Cambodian Angkor. Those massive old trees, stand proudly holding up the sky, their muscular roots lock tight onto the crumbling tower walls to prevent it falling. It is definitely the embodiment of the Ta Prohm.

Other temples like Angkor Wat, Bayon, Banteay Srei all worthy of a visit.

如果你看過宮奇俊的天空之城,你可能會同意,動畫影片中那座凋零的浮動城堡,充滿了柬埔寨吳哥城塔布蘢寺的影子。那些古樹蒼喬,傲然挺立,樹根緊緊抓著城堡頹垣不放,不讓其傾倒,支撐天地。絕對是塔布蘢寺的化身。

其他寺廟如吳哥窟,巴戎寺,Banteay Srei都不容錯過,值得一遊的殿堂廟宇。

Ta Prohm, Angkor, Cambodia. 柬埔寨吳哥城塔布蘢寺
It is not difficult to find clues about Cambodia’s rich history and culture, through the ruins of their Palace temples. The stunning landscape of Cambodia also fills my heart with joy. I especially love the sight of their water village.
柬埔寨豐富的歷史文化,不難在雲雲沒落皇宮廟殿之中找到線索。柬埔寨景色之美,令人樂而忘返。我尤愛他們的水鄉景色。
I love Cambodia’s rich colours, the lively and cheerful night markets, cheap and delicious food, and a lot of affordable leisure and entertainment.
我也愛柬埔寨繽紛的色彩,繁榮的夜市,便宜又好吃的食物,和林林總總的消閒娛樂。

Don’t forget to try their authentic palm sugar and ride on their tuk tuk.
柬埔寨的交通可以很便宜,乘坐他的電動單車篤篤,可以遊盡吳哥城。那裹有很多地道食物,可以帶走的,不妨一試他們的棕櫚糖。

How did we get to Cambodia

Flight and hotel: we booked online via Agoda.
Hotel choice: I went through other websites to check on the hotel’s review [not the hotel’s own website because the hotel can filter and distribute only good reviews. ] It was easier to choose a hotel with a pick-up and drop-off service from the airport.

Daily transportation: The hotel introduced us to a Tuk Tuk driver who stayed with us the whole trip.
Get a Tuk Tuk driver through the hotel, the price will be a little higher than finding a local Tuk Tuk on street yourself, but being unfamiliar with the place, the most important thing is safety. Our driver spoke very good English. He took us sightseeing, and then a round trip for dinner every day. Sometimes also acting as a guide.
After we got to know the place better, we found that the hotel is actually very close to the night market. We sometimes walked or call the local street Tuk Tuk. It felt very safe.

Local tour: On our eight days journey there, we also joined a local tour group to travel further away from Angkor city centre; like the Waterfall at Kulen mountain. We met some new friends.

自由行

航班和酒店:我們在綱上自訂了往柬埔寨的航班和那邊的酒店。
酒店選擇:我會在其他網業上 [不是該酒店的網業,因為酒店可以挑選和發放只說自己好的評價。] 看看其他客人對該酒店的評價來決定。選擇有機場接送服務的酒店會令旅程容易得多。

每日交通:酒店給我們介紹了一個篤篤車司機。
價錢: 酒店給介紹的,會比街外找的貴一點。但初到步人地生疏,最重要是安全。他說非常好的英語。 他每天管接管送我們去觀光,還有來回晚飯的旅程。 有時還充當導遊。
後來熟了地方,知道酒店其實很近夜市,可以步行或叫街上的篤篤車。也很安全。

當地旅行團:在那八天的旅程中,我們還參加了一個當地的旅遊團,去飌賞離安哥爾市較遠的景點,如庫倫山瀑布。認識了新朋友。
