Sunset at Angkor Wat

The last rays of sunlight on Ankor Wat

It’s time to sit beside the lake, facing Angkor Wat to watch the sunset….This spot is very famous both for  sunrise and sunset…

I walked to the back of Angkor Wat to check how it would be from there but there wasn’t a magical ambience so I walked back to the lake…

As it gets darker, I put my camera in m backpack and jump on my bicycle and start to cycle as fast as possible…I admit I felt a bit unsafe but it was dark and I was on the high way….When I travel solo, I try to be in the center of the town and close to my hotel during the evening, but this time I got distracted by the beauty of sunset…

When you cycle, put your cameras in your bag and wear the both strips so that it wont hang in there in your back…It’s also better  not to put your bag in your bicycle’s basket as you’ll be an easy target.

Make sure that you catch the sunrise at Angkor Wat, get lost inside Angkor Wat and met some cool people in Angkor Wat and finally observe the last rays of light on Angkor Wat…For more pictures of Angkor Wat come and join my adventures on Instagram.
