Sunset circus

Phnom Bakheng  – a small hilltop temple, currently under renovation – is considered to be THE place to be to watch the sunset. We went up there on our first night. There were hordes of people jostling for a prime position. We were told you’d be able to see the towers of Angkor Wat in the distance and indeed you could – very, very far off into the distance! The sun settled behind a cloud before it reached the horizon and we both felt a little underwhelmed and bemused. “I see better sunsets on Brighton Beach in Melbourne,” I told Tiny. He felt the sunsets from his childhood home in Bulleen were also of a far superior nature.

We both preferred our second Angkor sunset, at the equally lofty, but slightly less crowded Pre Rup, where this photo was taken.
