Regardless of whether or not you’re a morning person, it is worth getting up in time to see the Angkor Wat sunrise. It is absolutely breath-taking and ought to be on your bucket list.
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing that you will remember forever, especially if it’s the first time you see Angkor Wat with your own eyes. 😀 If you get there on time, it will still be pitch-black. Claim your spot and don’t move unless you want to lose it.
You want the best view possible. Angkor Wat is amazing and there isn’t anything quite like it. As Cambodia’s national symbol, it’s on their flag. Angkor Wat was built as King Suryavarman II’s state temple and capital city – he ruled from 1113-1150.
So you’re not just looking at a sunrise over a one-of-a-kind temple; you’re looking at the sun come up behind a nearly 900 year-old city. I hope that these pictures that I chose for this week’s Photo Friday will make you feel like you actually watched the sun rise and that they’ll make you put this on your bucket list if you haven’t already. 😀
That means we have to start with the darkness. It seems like it’s going to be pitch-black forever, so it’s really exciting when you can see the silhouette like in the photo below. 😀
What’s the most beautiful sunrise you’ve ever seen?
