Everyone raves about the Angkor area...the grandeur of the Angkor Wat temples... the enigma around the faces of Bayon...and gallery of a thousand Budhhas...the list goes on. However, there is stuff that few people tell you, which is good to know if you intend to head to Siem Reap to explore the Angkor area....
Do you want to watch the magical sunrise at the Angkor Wat? Almost everyone who visits Siem Reap wants to do the same... and there will be thousands of tourists to give you company. Don't expect to have a quiet and serene moment of enlightenment as dawn breaks! But the funny thing is - even though you know that you will be surrounded by hordes of people at sunrise, there are high chances that you will still make your way to the gardens of the Angkor Wat to watch the sky turn purple, red and orange with the first few rays of the Sun.
