2 Nights in Siam Reap...

It was a childhood dream, and when I was in Thailand I thought: why not!!! And crossed the Cambodia border to visit the temples of Angkor. It was just amazing to know Siam Reap and stay in a modest guesthouse.

Angkor Wat was the first temple I visited and I was delighted.
Travelling without worries.
A country with many happy faces.

Wat Rong Khun

Near Chiang Rai (Northern Thailand) I visited the most beautiful temple in all of Thailand (at least for me). The white temple known as Wat Rong Khun.

At the entrance was a sort of lake with many hands, I came to know that symbolized the hell.

Karen Long Neck Hilltribe

In northern Thailand I visited this tribe who came from Burma. They have the custom of wearing rings around the neck and other parts of the body. The reason most listened explains that this custom prevented the attacks of tigers, but today, this custom continues to be practiced only because of tourism.

Their houses...
...and its little inhabitants.
