Angkor Wat topped a poll conducted by, which gathered data from Tripadvisor reviews to find the places with the highest number of sunrise/sunset mentions around the world.

The Cambodian attraction – and UNESCO World Heritage Site, received 10,404 votes, more than double the number of votes for the the second placed attraction, America’s Haleakala Crater

“The walk through the trees to the east gate, and on to the main complex, is magical – often no one around at an early hour, with the birds singing as it grows light,” writes one reviewer of Angkor Wat.
