Avoid this place, it is an absolute circus around sunset. It is touted as the best place to view sunset over Angkor Wat but there are so many people it isn't very enjoyable. The circus starts when you arrive around 5pm along with masses of other buses, tuk tuks and all manner of transport weaving itself around you. There is a long staircase to climb before you arrive at the temple. The stairs are in a sorry state and in desperate need of repair. You can try getting an elephant up the hill. Remember to bring a torch because these steps are extra treacherous on the way down.
The temple itself is just ok. The crowds really spoilt it. You can only just see Angkor Wat. Reflections in nearby Tonle Sap are more impressive. Amongst the tourist there were a few monks and someone playing the flute - which made the experience almost bearable.
