Google Maps goes to Angkor Wat, Cambodia

This is pretty cool.

With Google Maps, and Google Earth, you can now visit some pretty cool places, including the historic temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

angkor-watIf my linking is correct, you can access it simply by typing Angkor Wat in Google Maps or Google Earth, or click this link and it should work.

I remember a Colombian friend of mine, back in the early 1990s, telling me how amazing it was being able to visit Paris and see all the famous painting in person.  He was an artist, and other than buying art books, he couldn’t see great art. Now with the Internet, he (and you) can.

    So cool; was there with family in the late 60s just before the area was overrun by Khmer Rouge, my brother and I spent an entire day on bicycles through the Angkor Wat/Angkor Thom/Bayon complexes…Got rained on twice and my Timex watch filled with water..!

    I’m thrilled to see this… In 2006 I had the privilege of visiting the temples and they are amazing. At the time I thought that if I made it to Cambodia and witness their beauty, I could die a happy man. I was 29. I can die a happy man. They are that crazy-beautiful.

    That is very cool. There’s a growing number of very interesting sites on Google Earth. I was able to follow a friend’s progress on the Camino de Santiago last year while she walked the ancient pilgrimage route. I like to think I went along on the pilgrimage at the cyber-virtual level. I’ve also toured several European cities that way, had a detailed look from the air at the Ruta Puuc in the Yucatan, even explored a few Mayan ruins that way. Yes! This is a very cool development and, gloriously enough in these often foolish times, there’s more on the way!
