We're heading to Cambodia on holiday in 6 weeks or so. We have 3-4 days to spend at Angor Wat and would like recommendations for tour guides. Any additional tips that you may have about Angor Wat, Phnom Penh and KL also welcome.
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]
I think my Dad's gmail account got hacked while he was in Cambodia at the start of the month. We have no idea how. What should we do beyond changing the password and alerting the banks and credit card companies? [more inside]
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.
