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.
The western pool is a large artificial lake in Siem Reap, beautiful and more people go
A lake at the back of the airport where you can see sunset. It's quiet. Close to the temple, the little monks are playing in orange robes.
Xichi is an achievement of the Angkor Kingdom's water conservancy project. In the 9-12 century, Angkor made great efforts to build water conservancy, built mainly by the East Pool, Xichi, North Pool, Luolai Pool, Royal Bath Pool and the Angkor Temple Moat and the Tongwang City Moat. A vast water system that connects thousands of small ponds and pipes. Along with irrigation, this vast water system combines water and drainage for cities and temples, and is the Angkor Kingdom's contribution to human civilization. But now the water project is a wreck, leaving Xichi to prove the existence of the water project. Now Xichi is more like a beach in Siem Reap, attracting local residents to relax.
Climbing up the highest steps of the Baken Temple, full of people watching the sunset, in the west toward the sunset, even the foot not even in. Before the eyes of the color of the crowd, ears of different languages, is a lively international market. So easy to squeeze to the front, the sun is already almost down, ahead is the vast tropical jungle, the sky is brilliant sunset. In the northwest, a water surface as wide as the Great Lakes is the West Bay, built by Suryavarman I in 1015 years. It is 8 kilometers long and 2.3 kilometers wide. It is the largest artificial pool in human history to date. It provided a stable and reliable source of water for agricultural use during the dry season in Angkor, where rice cooked three times a year, feeds millions of people in the metropolitan area, and is responsible for Xichi and other water conservancy facilities. Southwest, Siem Reap International Airport, the planes on the landing reflected the setting sun, glittering.
