Many area still close and have The information Board.

And there ‘s one sign I saw it all around..

so I just wonder.

Whats that sign.

Its like some Foundation or Organization or something.

I got answer from my bf.

Its APSARA Authority,

who manages the Angkor temples and the surrounding area

Apsaras are supernatural beautiful girls:

they appear as young women of great beauty

and elegance who are proficient in the art of dancing, at Angkor Wat

Wowow.. Its so incredible… (even I see it from a far sight) Looks so Massive. Huge, Enormous,significant.

Even I put all the words that mean ‘BIG’. I don’t think it can describe all my feeling that I feel when the first time I saw that place. If compare with a man . Its like when the man saw a Beautiful woman and feel like its hard to breath Coz She’s TOO Beautiful. She can Stop all the moment around you. You will not hear other people talking. Or the motorbike passing by. Or even the little kid who shout at you tell you to be-careful ,Coz the car coming .And it about to crash you. But you feel like you in a dream and all your movement stop by that Beautiful Woman.( For me in this case …it ‘s  Angkor Wat)
