If you don't have a vertigo and you're a sucker for aerial sights, climb up Phnom Bakheng ( a temple atop a hilltop) for awesome sunset views of Angkor Wat. Lara Croft aka Ms Angelina Jolie scoped the sunset-scene through binoculars when she was dropped by parachute on the very hill itself!
Well, since that famous show, the hill has become a circus and they're tons of folks there hoping to catch the same view. So, what can you do? Well, troop over to Pre Rup( a really tall temple of stones ), of course, for the same purpose. It's less crowded there. See my Angkor Wat page
