The Only Smiling Apsara is the Whole of Angkor Wat

Today I decided to explore the temple of Angkor Wat on my own. I took my time and ended up spending three hours there. I found the one Apsara dancer in over 2000 that is smiling. In addition, I look at all of the bas-reliefs along the walls. I read my guidebook at the same time to add more context and history to the amazing carvings.

While I was there, a couple was taking their wedding photos which was very romantic!

I also found a quit space to do some meditation along one of the outer walls which was lovely. Because I went in the afternoon, there was barely anyone there because most tourists only go to Angkor Wat for the Sunrise. It was a great opportunity to take photos and see all the details that I had previously missed.
