Itinerary

We will meet you in the hotel lobby at 8:00 a.m. and head directly to purchase the Angkor pass. We will then drive to Ta Phrom Temple, which has been left in its original state and is partly overgrown with trees and huge roots. It was also used as a backdrop for the film Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie.

After the visit with your experienced tour guide, we head to the World Heritage-listed Angkor temple complex to visit one of Cambodia's jewels, the impressive Angkor Thom, which was the fortified "Great Royal City" built in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII. At the South Gate, we can see the imposing statue of Avalokiteshvara, which appears in the Tomb Raider movie.

Next, we visit the temple of Bayon, in Buddhist style and adorned with hundreds of faces made of stone, and also explore the Terrace of Elephants, former Royal Palace, Phimeanakas, Terrace of Leper King, and Baphoun temple, It is considered the largest Hindu temple in Angkor Thom.

We will have lunch near the Angkor Wat temple. Then we enjoy a visit to the fascinating Angkor Wat, the largest sacred building on the planet and an icon of the Khmer civilization. It was built by King Suyavarman and is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. It contains hundreds of decorations that cover the walls and the longest bas-relief in the world. It is surrounded by a giant moat, and its five towers are part of the Cambodian flag, and from the top you can see the impressive and dense jungle. It is the most revered in the country and the most emblematic of the complex.

Before concluding our tour, we will take a private boat tour to Tonle Sap Lake and explore the local life at the Floating Village, where Southeast Asia's largest freshwater lake resides.

Note: The best time to visit the floating villages is during the rainy season, especially from August to February.

  • No smoking, drinking alcohol or touching the carvings is permitted in and around the temples.
  • Dressing Standard: While visiting any temples, both male or female visitors must dress respectfully and at your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. Comfortable shoes are a must. The Apsara Authority which manages the park reserves the right to refuse entry to certain areas of the site for guests who wear clothing which is considered immodest.

What to bring

  • It can get very hot walking around the Angkor complex so be sure to always carry water and appropriate skin protection including sun scream and mosquito spray. You can buy sun scream and mosquito spray in town.
