Watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat is a virtual pre-requisite of any visit to Siem Reap and the Angkor temple complex nearby.
We set the alarm for 4.00am and our driver and guide were there waiting at the entrance to the hotel at 4.45am to take us to Angkor Wat.
The streets were already alive with people despite the early hour and the darkness, although their shapes were only a blur.
Many people make the pilgrimage to Angkor Wat to see the sunrise..... each morning would be very different to the next. Sometimes it would be stormy, cloudy, raining and virtually impossible to see anything ........ we were very lucky and had good weather for the four days of our visit.
We were there for over an hour and I took many images all at various times and from different areas.
These are just a sample taken with my 'P + S' Panasonic.
