Area Manager Kandi Ames found her trip through Cambodia and Vietnam to be full of magical moments and many surprises—including a sneaky local in a boat. Here, she shares her five favorite images from her trip.
Watching the sunrise at Angkor Wat is pretty magical and mysterious—not to mention exciting. It’s like waiting for Christmas morning with 500 of your closest friends.
Ta Prohm was my favorite temple we saw on the trip. It’s often called the “jungle temple” and for good reason. Trees spring up from the temple walls, almost crushing them beneath their thick trunks.
We “photo bomb” here in the states but they also learned this in Vietnam and have a great sense of humor. I was trying to get a photo in front of the water and this woman quickly rowed up behind me, threw up the peace sign and rowed away. I didn’t even know this happened until I was looking at my photos later that night.
This is a picture of the tomb where Ho Chi Minh’s body rests. You are able to walk through the mausoleum and observe him in his final resting place. I was able to catch this moment with the guards outside while wandering the grounds.
The beaches of Vietnam are like no where else in the world. Hoi An feels a bit tucked away from it all, so I was able to grab a few zen like moments while walking on the beaches and watching the fishermen in their basket boats.
