Using a layover as a mini vacation in Bangkok

I have a flight scheduled into Bangkok and a few hour later into Siem Reap Cambodia. I would like to make the flight into Bangkok a few days earlier and explore Bangkok on my extended 'layover.' I have a U.S. passport - would there be any issues with that for Visa on arrival in Bangkok?

Google fail: Episode of House Hunters International about Cambodia

I can't for the life of me find a copy of this episode online anywhere. I've emailed HGTV but can't think of anything else to do to find it. It's an older episode, from a season that's not on Amazon/Hulu or anything else that I can see. Here's a link to a mini-version of it: http://www.hgtv.com/shows/house-hunters-international/episodes/young-woman-empowers-girls-of-battambang-cambodia [more inside]

Seeking images of grand relief sculptures at Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat in Cambodia is perhaps the largest archaeological site in the world, and I am now fascinated by it. I am trying to learn more about the grand relief sculptures at Angkor Wat, and especially the Churning of the Sea of Milk, the Battle of Lanka, and the Battle of Kurukshetra. Unfortunately, these are so big and complex that I am having trouble finding great images of them online. Are there gigapixel photos, interactive panoramas, or other digitized versions of these available? I suspect that there are, but I cannot find any. Leads to such imagery would be greatly appreciated.

A book about Indochina, to make my mother happy.

My mom wants a book on French Indochina, and I'd like to find a good one for her. Preferably non-fiction, but good fiction with some insight into history and culture would work, too. The exact historical time range is flexible, but she's mostly interested in the area pre-Vietnam War.
