Angkor Wat Pictures - Photo Essay

We spent a wonderful day at the amazing Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We arranged a tuk tuk for the full day for $15 and paid for a 1 day park pass for $20 each. Not bad! We woke up early, like 4 am early, to watch the “must see” sunrise over Angkor Wat. Although we woke up early, there was no sun rise, just clouds! Nonetheless, it was truly remarkable.

Most people have told us to go early in the morning and leave the temples around 11 because it just gets so hot, but because it was quite cloudy, we were able to really milk our day and get some awesome Angkor Wat pictures! We were there from 5am to 1:30pm! A day well spent! Make sure you check out a map and plan your day.

Some Facts:

– Angkor Wat is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most important temples in Southeast Asia.

– Angkor Wat is on the Cambodian Flag and on the Reil (their currency).

– Angkor Wat Temples are more than 50% of the reason people travel to Cambodia.

– Angkor Wat is also the largest religious monument in the world.

– Angkor Thom had a small role in Tomb Raider with Angelina Jolie.

– The bricks used to build the temples were bound by a vegetable compound rather than mortar

    I love the fisheye look of all of these pictures — and the details! Cambodia and Angkor Wat are definitely on my bucket list. I would also like to visit Vietnam. Can’t wait to head to Southeast Asia soon!

      We didnt get a real bright sunrise- but it was still beautful nonetheless. We did a different route so we could skip some of the crowds, so starting with the further ones first and working our way closer to Angkor Wat!

    I love Angkor Wat..! Oh and you definitely had it cloudy! I experienced the Angkor Wat in the ‘traditional’ super hot way :D Even had to buy an umbrella because the sun was getting pretty violent!

      It actually looks really cool because the trees are so large! Some of the trees are actually being cut down because they are becoming too heavy for the structures to hold now. :(
