60 Road Street located outside from Siem Reap city. This places similar to Pub-Street but this place different because 60 Road Street not the place for tourists at all as this place local people go sightseeing in late evening and night to get the fresh air outside from city and It’s a glorious evening street market lining both sides of the road. It runs from evening around 6:00pm (maybe earlier) until well in the evening. The road starts with small fruit stalls with piles of fruit laying on plastic on the ground. Maybe some of the more exotic fruits (such as jack fruit) and lots of selling fried snakes, crickets, beetles, spiders, and other insects (popular for local people buy and eat) on trays balanced on the top of boxes, bins, anything really. But most is just at ground level.
After a bit the market changes character. It becomes a clothes and tat area. The stalls sell everything from Children toys, jeans to bags to shoes to bracelets to … well … just about anything really and further more along still it breaks again into food stalls. Grilled sausages, corn, barbecue stands. This is window shopping without windows.
You will see also people sitting on mats along the side of the road as they having picnic in the group of family or friends next to the play grounds for children playing like amusement Disneyland Park.
The reason for which so many local people decide to hang out in this precise area is the beautiful sunset sky or night it offers, as there is no building around to block the view.
Boring watching sunrise at Angkor Wat with overcrowded tourists? Usually Phnom Bakheng always crowded of tourists during sunset but watching sunrise over there will less tourists and sometime no tourists at all at this place because most of tourists always go to see sunrise at Angkor Wat.
Phnom Bakheng temple located on the top of the natural hill that it’s about 2km away from Angkor Wat. Climbing up and sitting or standing on the top of temple you can see also the view of Angkor Wat, Siem Reap City, Airport field and the huge jungle of Angkor Archaeological Park surrounding.
West Mebon Barray Lake is a giant reservoir constructed during the Khmer Empire, measuring 8km long by 2.1km wide (or almost 2,300 Wembley Stadium football pitches). Its purpose at the time it was constructed is still not clear, and the original hypothesis, that it was used for irrigation, no longer holds much water. In the centre, is an island with the West Mebon temple. We drive lead to West Mebon Lake then we embark on the cruise boat ride up to island with the West Mebon temple. We can visit temple on the island and watch sunset from island over-there or watch sunset from the boat on the reservoir.
Phnom Krom is located to 12 kilometers southwest of Siem Reap town. On the top of this mountain has small temple called Phnom Krom temple which was built in 9th Century dedicated to Shiva God. The scenery from the mountain top you can see countryside, villages, rice field and vast of Tonle Sap Lake.
Due to the long drive from city if you make for sunrise tour requires to leave a bit early to this place. After climb on the mountain top wait and watch sunrise already then you can go to Monastery meet the monks and make meditation, chanting with the monks (If you don’t want make meditation, chanting with monks let skip, just only see sunrise).
If you visit sunset over-there then you will see the sun will go down to the vast of the Tonle Sap Lake.
(If you visit sunrise or sunset over-there you can combine with visit Phnom Krom temple on the mountain top also).
Phnom Bok is a steep hill of 235 metres in height, and the third peak of the Angkor region after Phnom Bakheng and Phnom Krom. It has a small temple on mountain top called Phnom Bok temple the same name of mountain called Phnom Bok also and this temple was built by the king Yasovarman I (889–910) between 9th and 10th centuries.
Due to this mountain a bit so far if you do sunrise tour require to leave from your hotel a bit so early and climbing during dark between 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you do sunset tour for climbing take around 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
The ‘bird sanctuary’ at the Prek Toal core area of the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve has been called “the single most important breeding ground in Southeast Asia for globally threatened large waterbirds.” The Biosphere covers 31,282 hectares at the northwest tip of the Tonle Sap Lake and plays host to species including Greater and Lesser Adjuncts, Black-headed Ibis, Painted Stork, Milky Stork, Spot-billed Pelican, Grey-Headed Fish Eagle and many more species. Of the three Biosphere core areas on the Tonle Sap Lake, Prek Toal is the most accessible from Siem Reap and the most popular with birdwatchers. The best time of year for viewing is the dry season when flocks of migratory birds congregate at Prek Toal. As the dry season progresses and the water recedes, the number of birds increases but the travel to some of the more important viewing areas becomes more difficult.
