I like to see and experience what the locals do. This is a reservoir that provides water for most of Siem Reap, and it is also a place where many locals meet on weekends. There are a lot of things "made for tourists" in Cambodia, and this is a great way to just spend time with the locals and see how they have a good time. During the dry season, you can walk or ride a horse across the reservoir and see a temple located on a small island. Man-made reservoir, but really big. Khymer in Siem Reap uses this as their beach. It is about 10 kilometers from the city. It's really worth seeing. Many people swim here. Quite safe. There are boat rentals. Many local street foods here are cheap. It is very cheap to rent a bed here, and it must be rented. It will get very hot here, so the awning is very important. Most of here are Khymer families. Some small restaurants on lakes and rivers have returned to Siem Reap. It's really cheap. highly recommended.
In a lake at the back of the airport, you can see the sunset here. very quiet. Facing the temple, the little monk was playing in orange robes.
West Lake is a relatively large artificial lake in Siem Reap, very beautiful, more people go
The West Pool is a result of the Angkor Kingdom's water conservancy project. See the introduction. In the 9-12th century AD, Angkor vigorously built water conservancy projects and built Edong Pool, West Pool, North Pool, Luolai Pool, Royal Baths and Angkor Temple Moat and Tong The Wangcheng moat is a grand water conservancy system that connects thousands of small pools and pipelines. This huge water conservancy system is not only used for farmland irrigation, but also takes into account the water and drainage of cities and temples. It is the contribution of the Angkor Kingdom to human civilization. But now the water conservancy project has been ruined, leaving Xichi to prove to people the existence of the water conservancy project back then. Now West Lake attracts local residents to relax here, just like the beach in Siem Reap.
Climbing to the highest level of Bakken Temple, there were already crowds watching the sunset, and they couldn't even get their feet in the west towards the sunset. There are people of all skin tones and different languages in front of you. It is a lively international market. It was easy to squeeze in front, the sun was almost down, the front was a vast tropical jungle, and the sky was a gorgeous sunset. To the northwest, there is a wide water surface like a large lake. It is the West Baray (West Baray) built by Suryavarman I in 1015. It is 8 kilometers long and 2.3 kilometers wide. It is the largest in human history. The artificial pond provided a stable and reliable source of water for agricultural water in the dry season in Angkor. At that time, rice could be grown three times a year and provided food for millions of people in the capital area. The West pond and other water conservancy facilities are indispensable. To the southwest, is the Siem Reap International Airport, with the flying planes shining brightly against the setting sun.
