864-Angkor Wat Sunrise – Siem Reap, Cambodia

One of the things I had heard for sometime as we began planning this trip was that you had to go to Angkor Wat and see the sunrise. So I got up at 4:30 one morning and took the car to the temple to see the hyped event. It was just me and a thousand Japanese tourists slinking our way into the pitch-dark temple. I didn’t need a flashlight because every Japanese tourist had one and I just hitched a walk next to a group.

I found a great spot across the lake from the three temple tops and waited there for a couple of hours taking a photo every minute. These are the top shots from the hundreds I took.
