Wandering Angkor Illustrated Book

I worked as a Landscape Architect on Built Heritage Preservation Projects in Cambodia. I fell in love with Phnom Penh’s old houses, green neighbourhoods and heritage buildings. And in Siem Reap, of course, I fell in love with the magical temples of Angkor and the friendly town of Siem Reap.

What better way to honour my work in Cambodia than by writing and illustrating a book? Here is Wandering Angkor, a fully-illustrated book on Siem Reap and Angkor. It is light-hearted, colourful, fun and brimming with facts about Cambodia and the temples. Perfect light travel reading and great souvenir.

Wandering Angkor, extracts from the Book

Follow me, on my purple motorbike,  and I’ll show and explain the many wonders of Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor.

Hop on! Let’s wander around Siem Reap’s Old Market, River and streets, and ride through the countryside to the temples of Angkor! We’ll visit Angkor Thom -the Great City, the Bayon -the Mountain Temple with a thousand mysterious faces-, and of course the majestic Angkor Wat.
