Angkor - Day 3

The last day in Siem Reap and Angkor, there is still a lot to see and do here but it's time to continue our journey.
This day was all about the sunrise and sunset rituals performed every day by thousands of tourists (I will need to post a picture to showcase this at some point) while visiting Angkor Wat.

We starte it off like everyone else by watching the sunrise at Angkor Wat before sending more time around there since it was very quiet after the sunrise when everyone left. We headed to see a few other temples before going back to the Bayon temple to spend more time there.
The last part of the day was to watch the sunset but we decided on a lesser visited place rather than the main tourist hangout.

In case you wondered why I never showed any people in my Angkor series, this is done on purpose but I will post a series with people later on.


  1. These are really nice. I like to shoot 'minus people' sometimes. It seems to give a more timeless look to ancient monuments and temples. Tourists unfortunately scatter the scenes with bright colours, track suit tops, tee shirts, smiling faces, sun glasses, plastic bags, baseball caps... and cameras LOL.

    The 2nd and 4th are my favourites. I really like the aged stonework on those temple statues. Great colour, not too over staurated.

  2. Thanks for your comment Bill!

    You are right that tourists can take away from the setting and distract more than they add to a picture.
