Exotic Forays Presents


Aranyaprathet/Pophet-Thai/Cambodian Border

Welcome to Exotic Forays excursion to Siem Reap, Kampuja (Kampuchea), formerly known as Xiem Riep, Cambodia. Home of the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, Angkor Bayon, Angkor Thom and many others. These images are compiled from our road trip from Aranyapraphet/Pophet at the Thai Cambodian border to the modern city of Siem Riep, wherein lies the ancient temples of Shiva and Lord Buddha. The temples at the Gates of Dawn. They are nothing less then awesome and once you have viewed their majesty and archaic splendor as I have, then you too will never feel the same again. Just to stand in their presence is an honor and an achievement which all should undertake at least once in their lifetime. So let the Journey began.
So sally forth and enjoy.
Best regards,
John W. Allen
