Beng Mealea: Tomb Raiders, the Sequel, starring Lauren "Croft" Glaser

Beng Mealea was my favorite of the Cambodian temples we visited.  Located about eighty kilometers from Siem Reap, Beng Mealea is a sandstone temple that has been largely untouched by restoration.  The sprawling, crumbling, overgrown complex is the perfect place to live out all of your tomb-raider-Lara-Croft-Indiana-Jones-lost-temple fantasies.  Green moss creeps up pink sandstone walls, giant boulders are toppled on their sides and massive tree roots encircle ancient rocks.  With a friendly security guard (who abandoned his post to act as our unofficial guide) leading the way, we scrambled up precarious piles of rocks, along the rim of jagged towers and through cracked archways.  It was awesome.

Once we got off the wooden walkways it was like we had the place to ourselves

Also a good place to live out your Spiderman fantasies.

  1. Ultimately, this ruined the entire story for me and it almost made me turn people away from the film.
    Tron's original soundtrack by Wendy Carlos never left an impression with me either even being a film score and electronica fanatic. Synchronization Licensing Fee -Also implied as the "Synch Fee", this is given to marked specialists who are qualified for synchronize their music to movie.
