II.   Description:

Angkor, in Siem Reap Town, Cambodia, is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. It extends over approximately 500 square kilometers and contains many temples, hydraulic structures (dykes, basins, canals, reservoirs) as well as communication routes. For several centuries Angkor, was the center of the Khmer Kingdom. With impressive monuments, some different ancient urban plans and large water reservoirs, the site is a unique concentration of features testifying to an exceptional civilization. Temples like Angkor Wat, the Bayon, Preah Khan and Ta Prohm, exemplars of Khmer architecture, are closely linked to their geographical context as well as being imbued with symbolic significance.

The enchanting temple of Banteay Srei temple is almost everyone’s favorite. The special charm of this little temple lies in its conservation and excellent decoration, its miniature scale almost always surprise visitor. The name, relatively modern, means (Citadel of the lady). It was built by the precious stone or jewel of Khmer art, it like pink stone of lime stone. Banteay Srei was not a royal temple; it was built by the counselor of the king Rajandravarman II in 968.

Kampong Phluk is a cluster of three villages of stilted houses built within the floodplain of the Tonle Sap Lake. It is about 16 km southeast of Siem Reap Town. Flooded mangrove forest surrounds the area and is home to a variety of wildlife including crab-eating macaques, and 3000 human inhabitants. During the dry season when the lake is low, the buildings in the villages seem to soar atop their 6-meter stilts exposed by the lack of water.
