Itinerary

Day 1: Small tour temples with sunset

Today, we will meet you in the hotel lobby at 8:00 a.m. and head directly to purchase the Angkor pass.

Then, we drive 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.

In the afternoon, 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.

If you want to see the sunset, the best place to go is either Phnom Bakheng Hill or Pre Rup temple.

To end the tour, we recommend you to have a buffet dinner at Kulen 2 Restaurant while enjoying the Cambodian Traditional Show. Please let us know if you are interested and we can help you reserve the best seat for you.

 

Day 2: Outside tour temples with sunrise

 

Today, we wake up early in the morning and visit one of the world's cultural heritage sites, Angkor Wat, the largest temple in the world as you soak in the breathtaking sunrise. The magnificent architecture and charming light and shadow are even more memorable with the light morning mist that is most often present in this region of Cambodia. As your expert guide tells you stories about the bas-reliefs, they'll also provide insight into life during the height of the Khmer Empire. After visiting Angkor Wat, we will have breakfast nearby the temple, please ask your hotel to pack a breakfast box for you.

Afterward, we will pay a visit to Ta Prohm temple, which has been left in its original state and is partly overgrown with trees and huge roots. Then, we head directly to Banteay Srei (Lady's Temple), a unique red sandstone temple, before the crowds arrive, and then to Beng Mealea, the mysterious 12th-century temple in the middle of the jungle. This temple is heavily overgrown with vegetation, trees, lianas, and mosses. This temple is the most ruined stone temple in Angkor Park, as well as one of the largest temples on a grand scale in this historic site.

We will have lunch at the Rolous Group and continue on our journey to explore temples in the Rolous Group, including Bakong, Preah Ko, and Lolei temple.

In the late afternoon, we will head to the famous floating village of Kampong Phluk. There, you can see firsthand what everyday life is like for the many families who make their living primarily from fishing. We enjoy a boat ride and observe the local life in the villages with their floating farms, schools, markets, and Buddhist temples. The tour will conclude in the evening.
