Cambodia’s spectacular ruins
Sunrise at Angkor Wat
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Many tourists who went to Angkor Wat always rave about the spectacular sunset there. I am one of them and was indeed so much attracted by its stunning beauty.
You should not miss the sunset at Angkor Wat if you intend to visit Cambodia. It would be a pity to miss that if you came across a rainy and cloudy day.
My friends and I waked up at 4:00 am and took a cab to get there. The sky was still pretty dark and the lawn was full of tourists. People were trying hard to find the best seat and getting their camera ready. At dawn, the sun rose behind the Angkor Wat Temple and silhouettes of palm tree gradually. The sky was transformed into an array of colors.
The scene has been deeply engraved in my mind.
