Angkor Wat's upper level comes to an end and visitors are once again allowed to marvel at this magnificent temple's most sacred area. Kent Davis' Angkor Wat Apsara and Devata website has more on the re-opening of the area known as Bakan here. Taking those final, steep steps to the top has been out of bounds for mere mortals since October 2007 and new restrictions have been introduced to ensure the new access isn't abused, news of which I broke here on 5 January. Enjoy it while you can.
