CAMBODIA ~Ankor Wat-UNESCO~

.... Each received card is a little treasure... But finding a new far away country gives me every time such a happy feeling for the rest of the day! :) :) This one from Cambodia must be one of my most beautiful ever... look at those colors, they are amazing! I can't imagine the feeling to stand there and look at it...

Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

  1. I guess this beautiful postcard is from ZJ. It's he who inspired me to collect postcard because she is the first person who sent me one.

    I just started collecting postcards and I never have a postcard from your country. I am interested to have a private swap with you if it's okay.

  2. Hi Gerda!
    I'm happy to send you the postcard. As what the old people say, when it rains, it pours... so now you have more than one postcard from Cambodia!

    Let's keep the postcrossing spirit alive!
