We got a Tuk Tuk driver from our accomodation and started at around 5am to see the sunrise over the main entrance temple. The buildings and surroundings are stuning and definitely worth seeing.

Be aware that a visit during sunrise brings a lot of crowds. However, you wouldn't want to miss the scenery - it's just magical. In order to avoid the heavy crowds, arrive in the afternoon, and instead enjoy sunset before the temple closes.

Following the typical weather patterns for much of Southeast Asia, the best time to visit Angkor Wat is during the dry season from late November to early April.

‘The sea of Temples’. Bagan was established in the 9th century and is one of the greatest archeological sites in Southeast Asia.

If you are not visiting during low season (June-September): Get up very early and start exploring at 6 AM or even earlier. Then you’ll have about 2-3 hours to explore the temples without crowds. Easiest way to get around: Rent an e-bike. Rest during midday and get back around 4 PM to experience the gorgeous sunset. Plan 2-3 days in total.

November - February: The best weather with sunshine, not too hot and dry. Also the most popular months, with highest rates. December and January are the absolute peak tourist months.

March - May: Still popular but already considered shoulder season. Very hot (40°C). Rain can already occur in May.

June - September: Rainy season. Lowest prices, less tourists. Rain in Bagan is not as bad as in coastal regions. Travel experts say, September is not a bad month to explore the temples, while experiencing a great lush scenery.

Sweet Spot Month:
A great month is beginning to mid-OCTOBER. You can usually already fly with the balloons. The scenery is lush and green. Less tourists than in peak season. A little rain is still possible but not really bad.
