Sunrise at Angkor Wat

One of my special memories of Siem Reap are the two mornings, when I went over to Angkor Wat at 5am to watch the sun rise over the beautiful temple complex. It was such a beautiful experience and there were fewer people around compared to the crowds later in the day.

While writing my post on Siem Reap this week, I was going through the photos I took at Angkor and I felt like sharing this collection of 12 sunrise photos at Angkor Wat first.

My strongest recommendation to travelers visiting Angkor Wat would be to experience the sun rise over Angkor Wat, enjoying the place in peace and quiet before the crowds arrive. It is also easier to explore the place in the morning than under the energy draining afternoon sun.

Have you experienced a sunrise over Angkor Wat? Hope this photo collection has made you want to visit Angkor Wat, if you haven’t already done so!
