Favorite thing: ANGKOR by Dawn Rooney in its fourth edition can be bought in USA for 25 USD and in saigon for 4USD.
It is such a well written book, and if you read the introduction on the khmer culture and then the various histories of kings and the sad aftermath of khmer rouge

Fondest memory: Walking along the different temples, taking your time. reading the book and looking for landmarks. and feeling good about being here, seeing budhist monks and novices walking along admiring what is their heritage.
