By Motorcar from Saigon to Angkor Wat in 1908

Montpensier, Duc de; By Motorcar from Saigon to Angkor Wat in 1908 : A French Vintage Car Adventure
By Motorcar from Saigon to Angkor Wat in 1908. A French Vintage Car Adventure tells the incredible story of one of the first car expeditions in Vietnam and Cambodia. A scion of the prominent French d’Orléans family took his car, a Lorraine-Dietrich—a 24/30 HP monster of 3,700 kilograms—through the mud paths and sands of Lower Vietnam into Cambodia and through the jungles to Angkor Wat. He was one of the very early visitors in that silent, deserted landscape and aptly titled his account of this expedition to the lost city La Ville au Bois dormant. Richly illustrated the visit came when prevention from looting had become an issue and provides not only period photographs of Angkor Wat but also of the countryside of Vietnam and Cambodia. With the help of buffaloes to pull the car and willing hands of indigenous people in many villages, the adventure was definitely crazy, as only French nobility can be, but worth every minute it lasted. The book was a resounding success then, and now.
