Information about the Khmer Kingdom ruins I have visited in Cambodia, Thailand and Laos.
Northern Cambodia - Prasat Sambor
A temple site that pre-dates the Khmer Kingdom by about 300 years, but which was modified and added to during the Khmer period.
It is not on the International Tourist radar. I visited this place while on a short road tour with friends Tim and David in October 2013.
Wonderful site, with very friendly locals.
Prasat Mueang Tam
Prasat Meaung Tam [means something like "City on the flatlands"] is a walled city comprising numerous buildings and four intact ponds. It is in Isaan in the NE Province of Buriram in Thailand, not many kilometres from its more famous neighbour which is Phanom Rung. Some of the intricately carved sandstone lintels are still in place, and demonstrate the great expertise of the builders of 900 years ago.
Straddles the border between Thailand and Cambodia, in Surin Province, and so is a source of considerable tension between the two countries...unfortunately this means that sometimes it is not possible to visit.
Its a triple site, with interesting ruins at each site, and all within about 1 kilometre.
Na's home Village is just a short drive from this site.
