Great place for sunset, best month is March but good anytime. Try to go about 30 minutes before sunset to get good spot!

Very nice place to watch the beautiful Angkor sunset. It reminded me a lot of doing the same thing in Bagan in Myanmar in that you actually climb up on the temple to watch. Get there early to have a good seat. Buses drop off loads of people here but there are definitely less people that in the other main... More

Bat Chum is a historically unique early Buddhist temple construct at a time when Hinduism dominated. There are not many people here to watch the sunset. You can enjoy watching sunset peacefully without much noise.The sunset about 4;15 to 5;15. Time control is important.

This is a fantastic temple set in picturesque woodland and lawns, it's one of the taller ones so be prepared to scale a few steps to get to the top but the views are good and pics are special, again it's near the others so even if you have to make a special trip do it

Impressive Hindu temple, you have to climb up to the top to see sunset, it is worth to do so. Better to... More

Very impressive Hindu temple that was used as a crematorium in its day. You can clearly see that this was its use too...which added to its interest. Steep climb to the top but you are rewarded with fantastic views over the tree tops...

Whatever Pre Rup lacks in terms of intricate carvings or grandeur, it makes up in the spectacular views from the top. We visited close to noon and the sun was bearing down pretty badly so avoid visiting in the middle of the day. Sunrise or sunset would be a better time, especially if you make it right to the top...
