What To Expect

Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation – first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist. It is the world's largest religious building. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors. Angkor Wat Temple combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple, based on early Indian Hindu architecture, with key features such as the Jagati. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs and for the numerous devatas (guardian spirits) adorning its walls. The modern name, Angkor Wat, means "City Temple"; Angkor is a vernacular form of the word nokor which comes from the Sanskrit word nagara meaning capital or city. Wat is the Khmer word for temple. Prior to this time the temple was known as Preah Pisnulok, after the posthumous title of its founder, Suryavarman II.

Bayon Temple
The Bayon is a richly decorated Khmer temple at Angkor in Cambodia. Built in the late 12th or early 13th century as the state temple of the Mahayana Buddhist King Jayavarman VII, the Bayon stands at the centre of Jayavarman's capital, Angkor Thom. A peculiarity of the Bayon is the absence of an enclosing wall. It is, though, protected by the wall surrounding the city of Angkor Thom. The basic plan of the Bayon is a simple one comprising three levels (1-3). The first and second levels are square galleries featuring bas-reliefs. A circular Central Sanctuary dominates the third level. Despite this seemingly simple plan, the arrangement of the Bayon is complex, with a maze of galleries, passages and steps connected in a way that make the levels practically indistinguishable and creates dim lighting, narrow walkways, and low ceilings. The temples decorated with more than 200 smiling faces on its tower.

Ta Prohm is among the largest of the monuments in the Angkor complex, the in scrimption gives an idea of the size of the temple. The complex included 260 statues of gods, 39 towers with pinnacles and 566 groups of residences. Ta Prohm comprises a series of long low buildings standing on one level, which are enclosed by rectangular laterite wall (600 by 1,000 meters, 1,959 by 3,281 feet). Only traces of the wall are still visible. The center of the monument is reached by a series of towers connected with passages.

Reviews

Great private tour of Angkor Wat with Mr Phy
Rebecca S, 31-12-2019
We just finished a wonderful 4-day private visit with Mr Phy from Green Era Travel. He was very knowledgeable about all the temples and was able to share the history in a way that was easy to understand for adults and children. He was very flexible with our family, adapting to our rythm and our interests. The tour was designed in a way to always keep us engaged and interested - mixing temple visits, local markets, meetings with children and swimming in a waterfall. We highly recommend a longer tour - 4 days was perfect. Thanks Mr Phy we will miss you!

Our tour began at sunrise at angor war and it was magnificent. Our tour guide, Nak was amazing in his knowledge of all the temples we visited. He was clear and interesting in his explanations and never got tired of answering our questions. I would highly recommend this company and this tour guide. The whole tour was worth my time and money.

My wife and I spent almost a day with Nak touring Ankor Wat, Ankor Thom and the Ankor Archaeology Park. Nak is very knowledgeable about the history. He is very patient and explain everything in great details. He is also a wonderful photographer. We highly recommend asking for Nak to be your tour guide if you are visiting Siam Reap

Also thanks to our company for organizing this amazing trip.
