    Trees at Angkor complex


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Student joycexuxu captured these haunting images of trees that have grown up, around, and in some cases through, the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia while on holiday this year.

    These photos were taken at Ta Prohm and Beng Mealea at Siem Reap. The magnificent trees with their trunks and roots entwining around the temples riveted my attention. I gazed at them in awe when I roamed around the Angkor complex. I wonder how the ancient trees can still hold the structures steadily in place.


    These thorny trees really add deep historical meaning and sense of mystery to those relics and show how the natural beauty can blend well with the ancient ruins. Do spend some time to appreciate these trees when you pay a visit to the temples at Angkor complex in the future!
