Fishing in the moat around Angkor Wat

Boys and men fishing from one of the two bridges that crosses that moat around the Angkor Wat temple complex. The square-shaped moat around the temple complex is 656 feet wide and has a perimeter of 3.4 miles. The bridges go through gates in the wall that also surrounds the complex, connecting to a causeway that runs directly to Angkor Wat.

A view of the moat and the side of the bridges, which run east-west.

A boy on the bridge, one of the demon carvings looking down on him. The demon carvings run the length of one side of the bridge, it’s either gods or heroes on the other, I can’t remember which and I can’t find a website that says.

      It’s pretty amazing! And ridiculously cheap once you get there. Our nice hotel: $25. Expensive meal: $5. Beer: $.50. And the people I met were so nice!
