Sunset in Bakheng Hill

Before I start describing where this place is, I would like to mention that why we choose to go to Cambodia as our ideal place for Honeymoon. Well a lot of people would go to a more enchanting places or a romantic island, but me and my partner prefer some interesting place that we never been before and we can do some sight seeing and relax and reasonable price as well. So we choose Siam Rep in Cambodia. We did not go to Phnom Penh at all, which most tours do, both of us spent a week in Siam Rep only as we would like to venture Angkor Wat only. The temple is part of the Angkor World Heritage Site, established in 1992.
Before I kept bragging about, the first stop that we went when we were in Siam Rep was to experience this intense hill climbing to watch the beautiful sunset. Well it was worth it! Look at those people that were climbing to gether with us!
Well, this is how the steps up the Bakheng hill looks like! Interesting isn't it? I was feeling like Lady croft myself! Mind yourself those trees by the side, the trunks all had sharp needle-like long torns!
The thing is despite all the tourists going up and down the hill, there's this group of Cambodian band, playing khmer music.
Beautiful sunset! The sunset was really enchanting. Both me and my hubby will never forget this wonderful experience. You have to be there to experience this captivating view. Although the crowd of people is considerably immense but there were peace and silence when everyone watch this breathtaking view.
Well, look at the amount of people there waiting to watch and capture the Sunset!
Phnom Bakheng at Angkor, Cambodia, is a Hindu temple in the form of a temple mountain. Dedicated to Shiva, it was built at the end of the 9th century. This picture was taken after the sunset. It was around 7pm in Cambodia.
