The world-famous Angkor Wat Temple complex must be included in your itinerary if you are visiting Siem Reap in April. However, it is suggested to start off in the early morning when you can not only enjoy the spectacular sunrise view but also avoid the scorching sunny weather. If you feel it not enough to explore the temple just on the ground, then try overlooking Angkor Wat from above. Taking a helicopter to enjoy a panoramic view of the giant temple complex and the surrounding areas would be awesome. Angkor Balloon is another highlight of your Angkor Wat trip. Visitors can reach 120-meter (394 ft.) high above ground, taking around 10 minutes to witness Angkor Wat from a bird’s eye view. Last but not least, don’t miss the Angkor Night Market located in the heart of Siem Reap, which boasts all kinds of souvenirs and delicious street food.
