Google Street View has fully mapped Angkor Wat

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Google Street View has fully mapped Angkor Wat

Now you can explore the temples from your own home anywhere in the world. Pretty damn amazing really. Not as majestic as actually standing in them, for sure, but still incredible. Especially if you see it as a marketing strategy for tourism in the area... letting people see them online and then make them REALLY want to see them in person.

Wow... not just the main temple... several of them! So cool.

Imagine this merged with an oculus rift! You could have a virtual tour company!

Speaking of which, I have an Oculus Rift and folk are welcome to take a look - it arrives in cargo from Oz within the week. Do NOT combine with illicit products!

^ LOL!

I've only had one person try the Rift so far and not be physically affected by it.
