Angkor Wat Sunrise

The best way to experience Angkor Wat at sunrise is to arrive several hours before the sun rises. The magical light of dawn makes for a truly breathtaking sight as it slowly lights up the 9th-century sandstone towers and monuments. While there, visitors can take part in guided tours led by knowledgeable tour guides (like our awesome guide Thol) who will provide insight into the history and legends associated with this impressive site. Explore ancient corridors, hidden galleries, royal courtyards, and more as you marvel at this UNESCO World Heritage Site—a perfect place to witness an unforgettable sunrise.

  1. RUINS and MONKEYS! A can’t miss tourist attraction! :^) Incredible! I remember how awestruck I was with the cathedral ruins (also 12th century) in St. Andrews, Scotland. (But no monkeys.)

    • For people like us who are not familiar with monkeys it was cool to see them however you could tell the locals don’t have much time for them. To them they are just a pest coming to steal food away or to aggravate you. We learned if there are moneys around you better not have any exposed food on or around you – they will take it away from you!
