Back in the 2000, Angelina Jolie did a little film called, Tomb Raider. The most memorable scenes take place in the ruins of an ancient city and were filmed in Te Prohm, Cambodia. (Kate and I are doing our best Laura Croft poses!)
Te Prohm has numerous and winding paths to navigate. Kate & I tried to find our way to the most picturesque spots with a map from my Lonely Planet.
We were mildly successful yet were spotted by an entrepreneurial local who offered to show us around, for a fee, of course. We happily accepted and he guided us through the complex, pointing out note worthy sights, like this giant Bayan tree.
Gosh, I love Te Prohm!
On the way out, we passed by the ubiquitous stands of handmade treasures: paintings, carvings and trinkets. The dealers are so insistant that you buy from them and I’d bet they would try to sell this darling, sleeping mouse if you looked at it twice.
