Before coming back to Paris, I visited Bagan, a city in the center of Myanmar, and maybe one of the most famous and beautiful place in this country.
For my first stop in Cambodia, I flew to Siem Reap, a northern city, very famous for its Angkor site. Angkor is an huge park hosting the remains of the Khmer Empire from the 9th to the 15th century. This tour is a perfect opportunity to discover the Khmer architecture, especially if you like temples!
After two weeks in Nepal, I am now in Malaysia!
The past days, I used to say “it’s too cold”, but now my new favorite expression is “it’s too hot”!
I stayed in Georges Town, a very nice place located on the north-east corner of Penang Island: wall paintings and street art, multicolor temples including Kek Lok Si Temple and very friendly people.
Boudhanath is one of the most famous Buddhist shrines in Nepal. Despite the fact that its dome has been destroyed by the earthquake in April, it remains an important place of pilgrimage for Nepalese.
As for the “Monkey Temple”, it is one of the oldest temple in Kathmandu. Monkeys occupy the place, and to access to the temple there are 365 steps to climb, but once arrived the view on Kathmandu is just awesome.
Not far from the tourist district of Thamel, the Nepalese roam in the shopping streets and market, and rest on the square of a temple isolated to escape from the noise and the crowd.
Near the Durban Square I crossed a sadhu, a Hindu holy man, who allows you to take some pictures in exchange for a small donation.
