How to explore the temples on your own?
To get the whole picture, one should leisurely visit the key temples. The other temples give this extra something; I would not have missed any of them.
No matter how much time you have, you won’t be able to see all of this.
However, blessed are the beginners!
Focus your holidays on Angkor
An extended stay in paradise
Go to Angkor in Cambodia and spend weeks there, leisurely rambling unique temples in a tropical landscape.
Lonely and silent, Angkor has become a more fantastic destination than ever before.
Cambodia, especially Siem Reap Angkor, is one of the best Covid-19 protected places globally.
I am Reinhart Zieger, a studied historian and experienced teacher with 20 years of Angkor background.
Since I have discovered the secrets of the temples, they have been telling me marvellous stories.
I consider myself more of a detective who reads tracks and is a storyteller than an expert.
