It is possible to get the circus ticket for 18USD right from the hotel you check in, or else you can buy tickets for the same price at the circus venue. The show begins at 8:00pm, and, to secure better seats, make sure to arrive there a bit earlier as it is free seating. For $35, adults can also find preferred seating.

Laze at a roof deck on a large bean bag while observing the sun as it sets over the downtown river must be the best day ender. Close to the old market area can you find cheap some rooftop bars. Somewhere in the heart of Pub Street, a place called “Temples Bar” is where you can have snacks and a glass of cocktail while immersing in Cambodian acoustic songs in the background and catching the afternoon rays on a roof deck. This amazing experience is what you will always remember.

If you think that because the light is not sufficient to showcase the beauty of the temple and its entirety, it is impossible to capture a good picture of Angkor Wat during sunrise, then you take a serious mistake. As it unveils the outline of the temple from across the moat, the sky starts to display its gorgeous spectrum. The photographers are really interested in capturing every single moment of this breathtaking scenery. Waking up so early in the morning may be a pain but the greatest adventures of your life are well worth your effort.
