Angkor Wat Night Moon Rise

  • By on September 7, 2009 | 4 Comments

    The final blog episode of Siem Reap Travel and I feel glad to write and share the 5 days 4 night Siem Reap temple journey in the past few months. Tonight I will bring you back to Angkor Wat to watch the moon rise 😀

    Did you ask me what is the best temple to visit in this 5 day 4 night journey?

    My answer will be Angkor Wat, Bayon Temple, Ta Prohm Temple, Preah Khan Temple and Banteay Srei.

    Check those temple out and I highly recommend it as a must visit destination in Siem Reap 🙂

    The Last Night In Siem Reap


    Just before the sunset, there will be a group of local preparing for some exhibition show.

    For some reason, Swee Wei and I just join in as volunteer to fit into the gap found in the group 😀

    Guess what, we were chase out by the authority after that 🙂

    But that’s not because we interrupting the show, but just that we didn’t pay any buck for the ticket show.


    We just move to one spot and start to watch the rise of the moon 🙂

    No one was allowed to enter Angkor Wat temple at night, no matter how much USD you got in your pocket.


    You just can take your night view photo shot from the entrance of Angkor Wat 😀

    Is quite dark in the area around Angkor Wat, so make sure you didn’t lost your tour guide or transporter.


    We didn’t plan our visit to watch the moon rise in Angkor Wat, but it was just coincidence for the moon to rise in our final night in Siem Reap 😀


    The Angkor Wat looks alive and beautiful on the night of moon rise 😉

    Okay folks, that’s all I got for the journey to Siem Reap travel and it was a real amazing journey I had.

    For those who loves travel, I recommend you to visit Siem Reap as soon especially for those interested on travel photography 😀

    Prepare your backpack plan and you can follow my itinerary as the route line of your travel.

    See you soon in the next chapter of Travel Escape 🙂
