It was my first visit to Cambodia. The building in this photo was one of the "gates" in Angkor Wat. At the gates, some Cambodians dressed in their cultural costumes and took photos with tourists. (Tourism plays a vital part in Cambodia)

I quite like this photo because of the yellow balloon. Mind you, its not a hot-air balloon... when looking closer to it, there was actually a string holding onto it and the balloon would only stay there still for tourists to overview the whole of Angkor Wat.
