What To Expect

Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world. It was built in the 12th century. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it’s the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation. We will enter the great temple in darkness from the little-visited eastern side. We continue our journey on foot and creep through a jungle path to the North ancient library pool where we will wait for the Sun Rise. Listen to the explanations of your expert guide, then spend time venturing into the central chambers of the temple, where your local guide will reveal the history, myths and stories depicted on the stone bas-reliefs (the longest stretch of bas-reliefs carvings in the world) then you will venture deep into the central chambers of this truly great temple. Your knowledgeable guide will ensure that your visit to Angkor Wat leaves you with a rich understanding of the history and purpose of the great temple, and also of the mighty Angkorian civilisation.

Angkor Thom South Gate
The South Gate is one of the five gates of Angkor Thom (the Ancient Capital City of the Khmer Empire). The gate flanked by a row of 54 stone figures on each side was the entrance to the fortified city of Angkor Thom. At the height of its greatness, Angkor Thom had a population of more than one million people and was larger in size than the city of London. It is one of the most popular tourist spots in the Angkor Wat area.

Bayon Temple
The Bayon is a richly decorated Khmer temple at Angkor in Cambodia. Built in the 13th century as the state temple of King Jayavarman VII, the Bayon stands at the centre of Jayavarman's capital. The Bayon's most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and smiling stone faces on the many towers which jut out from the upper terrace and cluster around its central peak. You'll see its beautifully crafted central towers, covered in more than 200 enormous faces. The temple has two sets of bas-reliefs, which present a combination of mythological, historical and mundane scenes. The outer wall of the outer gallery features a series of bas-reliefs depicting historical events and scenes from the everyday life of the Angkorian Khmer. The inner gallery bas-reliefs depict mythological events.

Baphuon Temple
Baphuon is located in Angkor Thom, northwest of the Bayon. Built in the mid-11th century, it is a three-tiered temple mountain built as the state temple. The temple adjoins the southern enclosure of the Royal Palace and measures 120 metres east-west by 100 metres north-south at its base and stands 34 meters tall without its tower, which would have made it roughly 50 meters tall. Its appearance apparently impressed Temür Khan's late of the 13th century envoy Chou Ta-kuan during his visit from 1296 to 1297, who said Bayon was the Tower of Gold and Baphuon was 'the Tower of Bronze...a truly astonishing spectacle, with more than ten chambers at its base.

Phimeanakas (celestial temple) or Vimeanakas built at the end of the 10th century, during the reign of Rajendravarman (from 941-968), then completed by Suryavarman I in the shape of a three tier pyramid as a Hindu temple. On top of the pyramid there was a tower, while on the edge of top platform there are galleries. Phimeanakas is located inside the walled enclosure of the Royal Palace of Angkor Thom.

Terrace of the Elephants
The 350 m long Terrace of Elephants was used as a giant reviewing stand for public ceremonies and served as a base for the king's grand audience. Some local Khmer residents call it “the Ancient Khmer Stadium”. It was built in the 13th century under King Jayavarman VII.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Terrace of the Leper King
The famous Terrace of the Leper King. The U-shaped structure is thought by some to have been used as a royal cremation site. It was built in the 13th century under King Jayavarman VII, though its modern name derives from a 15th-century sculpture discovered at the site. The statue depicts the Hindu god Yama, the god of death.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Ta Prohm Temple
The jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm (Tomb Raider temple)– one of the most atmospheric of all temples in Angkor. Ta Prohm was built in the 13th century. Unlike the most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm is in much the same condition in which it was found, the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors. UNESCO inscribed Ta Prohm on the World Heritage List in 1992. Today, it is one of the most visited complexes in Cambodia’s Angkor region. Ta Prohm was a religious temple located in the centre of the Ancient Khmer University during the 12th and 13th century.

An amazing unforgettable experience
PrincessKiwa, 19-05-2020
This tour had been on my bucket list for a long time & it did not disappoint. Yes, I had to get up very early (about 5am) but it was certainly worth it to enjoy a sunrise over the amazing silhouette of Angkor Wat. Yes, there were other tourists there (of course, as you can't book the place just for you!) but it was still serene & lovely. Taking the tuk tuk out to the temple added to the sense of adventure & feeling of being 'Indiana Jones'. Our driver & guide met us at the hotel & made the day very easy. Pat the guide was super friendly & had lots of great info to share with us & had a great sense of humour too. Our tuk tuk guide was able to take care of some of our gear, always had cold water available & did a great job getting us around to all the great spots. Pat also knew the best places for photos & we came away with amazing photos of sunrise & the temples in more detail, as the sun came up. A great day out & totally worth getting up early for.
