Full description

We will come and pick you up early in the morning at 4:30 – 5am, depending on the time of year. We will then take the short journey out to Angkor Wat and watch the sun rise over the majestic temple. After the sunrise, we will explore Angkor Wat temple and I will explain the history and architecture to you. After Angkor Wat, we’ll head over to Ta Prohm. This temple was built in the Bayon style in the late 12th and early 13th century. Ta Prohm was originally built as a Buddhist monastery and university. One of the unique features of Ta Prohm is that it has largely been left to the jungle and the trees are literally growing right through the middle of the temple. Ta Prohm is one of the most popular temples in Siem Reap as it was used as the location for the Tomb Raider movie featuring Angelina Jolie. We will then head over to Prasat Banteay Kdei which means “A Citadel of Chambers” in English. This Buddhist temple was again built in the late 12th and early 13th century by King Jayavarman VII. The temple is currently undergoing restoration, but is still open to visitors. After lunch, we will go to see Preah Khan which translates at the “Royal Sword” in English. Again, this temple was built by King Jayavarman VII and was the centre for nearly 100,000 servants and officials. Next is Angkor Thom, the ancient capital city of the Khmer Empire. Here we can see lots of things including the Royal Palace, the Terrace of the Elephants, the Terrace of the Leper King, Bayon temple, and more. Finally, we’ll head over to the South Gate of Angkor Thom to watch the beautiful sunset over the temples before taking you safely back to your hotel.
