If you are visiting Cambodia anytime soon, Angkor Wat is a must place visit for tourists. Visitors are encouraged to arrive by dawn to witness the sunrise which ascends on the background of the famous temple. Siem Reap is a province in Cambodia. Known its religious symbolism, you will find the famous Angkor Wat and other archaeological sites.

Angkor is a UNESCO World Heritage site where you find various complexes, monuments and temples. Aside from Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Phrom are well-known and most visited of the "other" temples. You will find embellished carvings and decorations adorning the walls of the Bayon temple. On the hand, Ta Prohm is an old monastery sprawled with vines and otherworldly trees. One of the things to do in Siem Reap is to either watch the sunrise or sunset at one of the archaeological sites. I did the early morning sunrise visit to Angkor Wat and climbed the Phnom Bakheng to watch the sunset. Visitors can purchase the one-day ticket or three-day pass at the checkpoint or travel agencies. Visitors are encouraged to arrive by dawn to witness the sunrise which ascends on the background of the famous temple. I would recommend getting a single day pass at 37 dolars or 62 dolars for 3 day pass.
