Wat Banan at Dusk
Wat Banan is a bit of a drive outside of the charming city of Battambang. Neither the city nor the temple is too high on most tourist's travel checklist which means that it is on mine. It was originally thought to be a prototype for Angkor Wat but later this was disproved. Still it's an amazing place for sunset and it makes you earn the 360 degree view with a steep and strenuous hike up to the top. Or group enjoyed watching the sky do its thing over the gorgeous ruins. The Tuk Tuk ride back in the dark was quite the experience too!
