You’ll be picked up at your Siem Reap hotel between 07:40 and 8:30 and head out for a full day exploring the spectacular temples of Angkor.
Angkor Wat is the world’s largest sacred building and an architectural masterpiece. Built in the 12th century, the temple took 30 years to complete and represents Khmer civilisation at its peak.
You’ll also visit the southern gate of Angkor Thom, which is flanked by a row of 54 stone figures on each side (gods to the left and demons to the right), and the fortified city of Angkor Thom.
At the Bayon temple (12th century), you’ll admire its beautifully crafted central towers covered with over 200 enormous faces, then explore the famous Terrace of the Leper King and the Terrace of the Elephants.
You’ll set out to see the jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm, one of the most atmospheric of all temples in Angkor. Once home to 2,740 monks, Ta Prohm today looks much as it did in the early 1850s, when French explorer Henri Mouhot rediscovered this crumbling site.
