STUDENT BLOG: My Field Trip
Last week my friends and I visited some temples surrounding Siem Reap Province. I have learned a lot about the temples, like history, how people built the temples to dedicate to other people, and the structure of the temples as well.
For the temples we visited Angkor Wat, Bantay Srey, and Choa Srey Vibol temples which are a little bit far from the town. All of these temples are very beautiful and wonderful for me.
Our teachers had explained to us a lot about the temples, so we are very proud that we were born as Cambodian. All of the temples are very useful for Cambodians since the temples can attract the tourism to come to visit Cambodia. Moreover, I have known about the situation of the people who live far away from the town. Thy life is not the same as people in the town. For example, the way they speak and they act is sometimes different from us. And they have the different jobs like hunter, fisherman, and climb the palm tree.
However, we feel disappointed as well that some of our temples are almost broken down.
We saw the part of the temple that has the rocks fallen down, some are broken and some are facing with the natural disaster. In the future I want to learn more about the temple and do more research about it.
