I will never forget our first glimpse of Angkor Thom. We took a taxi from Battambang to Siem Reap where we dropped our bags off at the hotel, met up with the rest of our travel buddies, and headed out for our first look at the temples of Angkor. It was afternoon and even though the sun was getting low we were eager to see one of the fabled temples so we stopped at Angkor Thom where the smiling faces carved into the stone greeted us. It was beautiful and as we wound our way through the temple I stopped to take just one more photograph from a different angle. There are so many amazing vantage points it is hard to decide which you like best.
