title: Ancient Angkor Wat
metaDescription: When is the best time to see Angkor Wat?
author: Tharum Bun
Siem Reap’s Angkor Wat is one of the my favorite places in the world.
When is the best time to see Angkor Wat? You should get there at 3:00PM. When the time is up to close the temple, the temple guards will tell visitors to leave. This is the best moment in time. Less crowded. Beautiful, golden sunset light starts to cover Angkor.
Before the sun setting down, this spot offers a good view of the pond reflection of the temple towers.
A trip to Siem Reap without a visit to Angkor Wat is meaningless.
