Having been this temple 4 times inclusive sunrise and midday visit, no one can fault the sheer scale of this temple in comparison with the other smaller ones in Angkor Wat area. You are counting on your luck if you want to see the beautiful sunrise. The crowd can be unbearable at certain hot spots within the temple compound but the operator has done good job by providing extra facilities such as timber steps to the second level of the tower and barricade for safety near the edge of the wall.
If this is the main temple you like to visit, you should choose a nearby hotel that you can visit to see the best of this temple at different time. Sunrise is a must while a midday visit you can see more details with the help of the sun. Sunset could be interesting too. Check out Tara Angkor Hotel as this hotel is just 10 - 15 minutes away from the temple.
