Hi! I will be travelling with my 69 y/o mother to Siem Reap in October. We could only spend 1 whole day to visit the temples, at most we could do it in 1 1/2 days as we will be flying back in the evening (10:30PM) to our country of origin.
Would like to ask for your opinion regarding our temple tour itinerary:
5AM sunrise at Angkor Wat
Back for breakfast at hotel (Siddharta, within Angkor vicinity).
Continue with temple tour starting at South gate of Angkor Thom,
Bayon, Phinea Nakas, Baphoun, Terrace of the Elephants,
Terrace of Leper King, Ta Prohm.
LUNCH (in forest, according to our guide)
Head out to Banteay Srei.
Sunset at Pre Rup.
Do you think the morning schedule is doable? If not, can you suggest which temples we can just skip? Or, are there must see temples that I failed to list down? I consulted this with several tour guides and 2/3 said better to just choose the major temples.
My other option is to continue with the temple tour on our own the following day and just hire a tuk-tuk to save on tour guide fees. My only concern is that we would have to pay entrance fees for another day which we would not be able to maximize.
Your suggestions would be most appreciated. :)
