Angkor Wat is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has countless attractions. Exploring everything that it has to offer in a mere three-day period is simply impossible. But here are some of the top things that you can do!
Top Pick for Day One – View the Sun Rise at Angkor Wat Temple
If you’d love to avoid the crowds and photograph mesmerising portraits of the Angkor Wat Temple, make sure that you visit it way ahead of the sunrise – possibly around 4 O'clock. This way, you can secure a good spot to place your tripod and snap the perfect tip lapse video or Instagrammable click.
Top Pick for Day Two – Discover Ta Prohm Temple
Now, this temple has gained a reputation as the “Tomb Raider” due to it being featured in the popular franchise of the same name. This temple has incredible views of roots growing right out from it. It is indeed a must-visit place during your stay at a luxury hotel in Siem Reap.
Top Pick for Day Three – Visit Bayon Temple
If you want to take any photos at the entrance of Bayon Temple, it would be best if you can arrive by 7:15 in the morning at the earliest. This temple is famous for its beautiful and intricate carvings and the attention to detail is unbelievable!
As soon as you arrive at Angkor Wat, find a tuk-tuk driver who can adapt to your schedule. This will allow you to tour around exploring the temples at your own pace.
