Because I had so much places to visit in Angkor Complex but I had so little time, I had to choose which places I should visit and leave the others behind so I'll have reason to come back to the city. For the last part of my trip in Siem Reap and Angkor, I visited Angkor Wat itself and Phnom Bahkeng, a temple built on top of a hill near Angkor Thom.

Phnom Bahkeng is believed to be the first major temple in Angkor. Built on top of a hill, it gives a spectacular view and is recommended by locals to visit right before sunset time.

The place was packed with people waiting for the sunset.
