Most people know about Angkor Wat. As it was used as a site to film the movie Tomb Raider starring Angeline Jolie. Angkor is defintely not to be missed. The Cambodian people are very friendly. When I travelled there I went with my 11 year-old son. The people really responded to him. We had a Great Time visiting Temples and riding motorcycles through the country side.

There are different organizations working to rid the country of this but it will take years!!

By the time I had a chance to think about going again was almost 20 years later. 2002! So I finally made it this year. I had a great time. And can't wait to return to Cambodia someday ...soon!
