I took the plunge and woke up at 4AM for a 4:30AM departure to make it to Angkor Wat by Tuk Tuk in time for sunrise – a must do for anyone traveling to the temple complex of Ankor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia. While I didn’t have the iconic sun shining through the temples, I was graced with a moody blue hued sky that began to open up around as the morning progressed. After realzing sunset wasn’t really going to happen I decided to leave the crowds by the lake, as they waited…and waited some more, and wander into Angkor Wat. As I walked away from the lake I discovered a virtually empty temple complex as the other tourists hadn’t made it there yet. What an absolutely amazing and magical experience in Cambodia.
