If it’s the prog I’m thinking about it’s re looted Cambodian antiquities. As an aside, if anyone has a bucket list Ankor Wat should be right up there at the top of it. We were there Nov/Dec 19 and it was truly fantastic, plus we thought of Cambodia as one of the best countries we’d visited. Thumbs Up

SWMBO brother and SiL went to Cambodia / Laos. Loved it. Especially loved it when they hired a car to take them to the temples that aren't on the main tourist drag. None of the noisy people, total peace and quiet and a real feeling of what the temples were. At least that's how it was described. Thumbs Up

As for looting temples - the west has been doing it for years. Look at all of the stuff brought out of Egypt as an example. Now, I have some sympathy with the view that much of this stuff would have been lost to the ravages of the environment if left to be exploited by the locals - European institutions are very good at looking after antiquities, generally. But I also have some sympathy with the view that the stuff wasn't ours to decide on how it should be looked after / used / exploited.

I'm glad that places like the Ashmolean Museum or the British Museum have these collections because I can go and see them - I do like the Ashmolean and it's reasonably close by in Oxford. But I'm aware that much of the stuff that was "collected" started out as "stolen" in many cases.

That’s what we did as well as regular tours and DIY hiring tuktuks. Thumbs Up

We both thought the temples were fantastic too. We took a minibus before dawn and watched the sunrise over the temples. We then had a guide and two mountain bikes and cycled lesser known tracks to visit ruins and temples off the tourist trail. A hot day but well worth it for the memories.
