I’m standing at the execution place of Jose Rizal, one of the greatest national icons of Philippines. It was here he was executed by firing squad which led to the rebellion against the Spanish coloniser who had controlled the islands for centuries. You will find this landmark just on the edge of Intramuros. #philippines #filipino #pinoy #history #asian #asia (à Luneta, Rizal Park)
Khmer cemetery. Contrary to Chinese and Vietnamese Buddhism, Cambodians cremate their dead. It is said if one is not cremated, one’s soul cannot properly achieve a rebirth and become an angered spirit roaming the earth. #vietnam #khmer #temples #wat #buddhism #asia #travels

Khmer classical dance, the indigenous ballet-like performance art of Cambodia, is called “Apsara Dance.” An Apsara is a female spirit of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist mythology. Apsaras are thought to be beautiful, supernatural female beings - youthful, elegant, and superb in the art of dancing.
