Sunrise Over Angkor Wat

Getting up at 5am in the morning is not high on my agenda normally but it was certainly worth it to do so when witnessing the stunning sunrise over Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Walking into the temple complex at pre-dawn in total darkness there was definitely an atmosphere about the place which is hard to describe but you realise that this site was a significant civilization may centuries ago. 
A recommended plan for a visit to the temple complexes in Siem Reap is a dawn visit to Angkor Wat, the rest of the day visiting the many other magnificent temples around the area and then return to Angkor Wat for the sunset which is even more spectacular than the dawn visit by my experience.
