PFF : Magnificient Angkor Wat

I received a book of postcard from my lady boss who just travel to Angkor Wat.

I was so happy as this place and postcard of Angkor Wat is in top of my wishlist.

The great temples of Angkor Wat are situated in the province of Siem Reap. This area is considered the biggest temple complex of the world and revealed itself after being hidden in the Jungle for many years. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

Let's adventure this magnificent place via postcards.
