The giant stone faces of Bayon have become one of the most recognizable images connected to classic Khmer art and architecture. There are 37 standing towers, most but not all sporting four carved faces oriented toward the cardinal points.
Preah Khan is a huge, highly explorable monastic complex. Full of carvings, passages and photo opportunities. It originally served as a Buddhist monastery and school, engaging over 1000 monks. For a short period it was also the residence of King Jayavarman VII during the reconstruction of his permanent home in Angkor Thom.on a day trip we ventured into the hills on this friendly beast ..... scary in places as it was a steep path
a spot of rafting anyone ?? hit a few rocks on the way down ... surprised i didsunset in Sihanoukville
town hall in the centre of HCMC (Saigon)the reunification palace which was the last place to fall during the American War.Notre Dame cathedral ... just a copy though !
next to the cathedral is the lovely old post office .. well worth a visitthis is a secret hide hole .... and here is a scared american tourist .... :o)one of the many nasty traps that were set for the enemy !!a modified enttrance way for visitors ... we went down and crawled alonf for about 15m ... not nice even with lights
one they left behind .... not much choice really !the beach at Mui Neclose to Mui Ne ... a small fishing harbourtiff on a bridge !
a larger fishing village a few miles from Mui Nethe view from our room at Mui Nethe beach at Nha Trang major temple in city , notice the symbolism
On the northwest side of Nha Trang is Long Son Pagoda, and active Buddhist temple featuring and unusual red brass Buddha on a wooden lotus pedestal. On top of a hill behind the pagoda is the massive 9-m high white Buddha on a lotus throne. the guarded entranceview from another temple on the outskirts of townthe lovely look of the town did not match the feel !! way too hectic for our liking , always someone in your face .....
the streets were very narrow with a rustic feelopposite our guesthouse this man was loading up his dump truck, love the body workview from the rear of the guesthouse ...
