Witnessing an Angkor Wat sunrise is a must when visiting the temples in Siem Reap! Just imagine watching the sky turn from midnight blue to pink, purple, and orange.
Peak travel months to Angkor Wat are from November to March during the dry season. Angkor Wat is easily accessible from downtown Siem Reap by tuk tuk (auto rickshaw). A round trip for the sunrise costs around USD7. Depending on where your accommodation is, people usually depart between 4am and 4.30am.
For female solo travellers, don’t worry about heading out in the dark in a tuk tuk. The road will be packed with other tourists heading the same direction, and most accommodations have their own tuk tuk drivers for hire.
