Here is Part 1 of 12 short clips on Cambodia from a trip to the region a couple of years ago. We start with an overland bus ride from Bangkok to Siem Riep ( the gateway to Angkor Wat.) Footage of the major temples and monasteries of Angkor Wat, including the Bayon, Ankgor Thom, Ta Prohm, Banteay Srei, Phnom Bakeng etc. is included. At Angkor Thom you can see the famous giant Avalokiteshwaras, the citadels, and the statue of the Leper King. At Ta Prohm we get to see a rare temple to Prajnaparamita. Thereafter, there are some thoughts on the Killing Fields under the Khmer Rouge, and also some footage of the major art of Angkor including statues of Jayavarman, as well as major Hindu and Buddhist deities, from several prominent museums. We conclude with a boat ride down the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers all the way to Phnom Penh, and end with sights of the capital of Cambodia. All 12 parts are listed here. Overall running time is 100 minutes.
