Pro tip for Angkor Wat

Wake up early to catch the sunrise, but instead of setting up in front of the pool near the entrance with the rest of the people, just walk in and start exploring. You will have the place to yourselves for an hour or two while everyone else gathers out front to get the iconic photograph. Go ahead and skip that (there are tons of examples of that photo already out there) and see what you can find inside. Plus it won’t be so hot that early in the morning so you can climb around without turning into a soggy mess.
