Top 4 Instagrammable Spots In Cambodia (Siem Reap)

Many have actually told how beautiful the picture was during my Cambodia trip on my Instagram. Getting the right angle, the right editing does the trick as well. A month ago, I booked a last minute ticket to Cambodia, just to visit my friends whom I met from the states 2 years ago. Anyway back to my favourite photo spots in Siem Reap, Siem Reap itself is really picturesque, you could find an amazing photo spots almost everywhere.

1.  Sunrise at Angkor Wat 

This. is. a. must. Angkor Wat is magical place that anyone must visit, not only the history and the architecture and engineering behind is amazing, it's definitely a beautiful place for you to watch the sunrise and for you to get your instagram game up. I suggest you depart from your hotel around 5am and get a good spot opposite the lake before Angkor Wat, you might wanna get a good spot for picture because after that, the place will be flooded by tourists who wants to get a good picture for sunrise too.

2. Inside Angkor Wat

Ofcourse, you should never miss the grand and majestic Angkor Wat. You might wanna cover up when you go in Angkor Wat because it's such a sacred place, you were not to expose your skin. My rebel self tho, took off my cover up just for a great picture. Note that, the Angkor Wat is really really huge, remember to keep urself hydrated while exploring the majestic Angkor Wat.

3. Beng Mealea

Beng Mealea is not only the most interactive temple, with crumbling stone blocks acting as stairs to the temple’s many subterranean chambers, but it is also one of the most beautiful temple to explore. This nearly thousand-year-old temple covers several acres of jungle terrain and is made up of a handful of libraries and courtyards. It takes about 1-2 hours to get here from the main town, but it's definitely worth the visit for this hidden gem.


The Bayon was built nearly a decade after Angkor Wat. If Angkor Wat looks massive and impressive, Bayon lends a mystical touch . A plethora of towers, almost 40 of them with carved faces gape at you as I realize that they are arranged in a staggering manner to form a stone mountain with smaller peaks. I spend so many hours here and yet I feel that i didn't have enough time to look at all sculpture or photograph the faces.  The Nagas, the Apsaras, the Gods and the demons definitely transport me to a different world.  Getting a picture here was easy, they weren't too many people visiting the place. so I definitely suggest u guys to visit Bayon.

what's your favourite spots? 

Love, Alvy
