Overview

This private tour in an A/C vehicle is led by an English speaking guide. You will visit each temple with the guide, while the driver is waiting at a car park.

Highlights of the so-called "Small Tour" are Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, and Angkor Thom. We hope to make a difference by modifying the Small Tour itinerary in 2 ways: Firstly, you will visit Angkor Wat twice, 2 hours at the beginning and another 30 minutes at the very end of the tour, allowing you to see both sides of the complex in best sunshine. Secondly, you will visit two "hidden gems" additionally, one of them being a picture-book "lost temple in the jungle".

Lunch-break will be at the reservoir called Srah Srang, where several good restaurants are available. Alternatively, the driver can drop you to another location, provided you agree to pay him for the extra kilometers.

Each temple can only be visited with an Angkor Ticket, it's NOT included in the tour costs: 1 day: 37.-US$ per person. Most guests prefer multi-day tickets

What To Expect

Angkor Wat
Our driver will first drive to the less frequented East Gate of Angkor Wat, entering from here, you will see Angkor Wat in the best morning light. Don't worry, you will see it from the much more famous West Gate, too, but at the end of the tour, when there is time for a second, shorter visit of the world's largest temple building.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

Prasat Kravan
The second stop is at the small temple of Prasat Kravan, which consists of five towers in one line. Prasat Kravan is most remarkable for brick carvings, which are large in size. All other carvings in Angkor are made of sandstone, not brick.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Prasat Bat Chum
Bat Chum is a small temple, three Prasat towers standing on a shared platform. However, it's of some significance due to the large inspriptions, which indicate that Buddhism had taken route in Angkor long before the era of the Buddhist King Jayavarman VII. Bat Chum is not frequented very often by tourists and thereby somewhat special.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Srah Srang
The terrace with animal sculptures of Srah Srang is quite picturesque. Srahs are not Baray, they are deepened artificially, whereas Barays are only reservoirs. Srah Srang is a smaller but elaborate artificial basin, presumably used for ceremonies instead of irrigation. A Buddhist prime minister initiated the construction in the 10th century, a Buddhist king rebuilt it in the late 12th century.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Banteay Kdei
Banteay Kdei is the smaller sister of the famous jungle temple Ta Prohm. Actually, it's still a very large complex. The flat temple has a very labyrinthic layout, but don't worry, you won't get lost.

After visiting Banteay Kdei, you will have lunchbreak at the nearby Srah Srang reservoir, where you have a choice of several good restaurants.

Alternatively, you could drive back to town for lunch, however, this additional detour would mean to pay the driver for it additionally and the tour would take more than 9 to 10 hours in this case.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Ta Prohm Temple
Ta Prohm is the world-famous jungle temple of Cambodia, overgrown by several immensely large strangle figs. It's a very large temple compound. So take your time to explore it.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

Ta Nei Temple
Ta Nei is still hidden in the jungle and can only be reached on gravel roads. That's why most tourists don't find their way to this temple. The ruins of Ta Nei are the perfect place for an "Indiana Jones Feeling". However, the temple also has some excellent works of relief art.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Ta Keo
Ta Keo is a former state temple. As all other state temples, it is an artificial mountain, a stepped pyramid. The stairs to the uppermost platform, where 5 Prasats are situated, are extraordinarily steep.

40 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Spean Thma
Have a photo stop at Spean Thma. This is a stone bridge from the late Angkor period, the construction made use of carved stones taken from earlier temples. The riverbed has shifted further east in the meantime.

5 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Chau Say Tevoda
Chau Say Tevoda is a charming medium-sized temple with an impressive processional route from the east and lots of pediment carvings depicting mythological themes.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Thommanon
Thommanon is the sister temple of Chau Say Tevoda. Thommanon is a temple from the Angkor Wat period. The towers are of the same style as at Angkor Wat.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

The Victory Gate
The Victory gate is the second eastern gate of Angkor Thom. It's one of the best preserved city gates in Angkor. You should not miss to climb the wal to enjoy the stunning view to the southern giant face of the gate, picturesquely framed by trees growing on the wall.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Bayon Temple
At the famous Bayon temple in the very centre of Angkor Thom we will only stop for a photo on the "Small Tour".

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Angkor Thom South Gate
Take your time at the iconic South Gate of Angkor Thom. The face tower and the railings formed by rows of giant statues, that are depicting demons and gods, are one of the must-sees of Angkor.

Due to our animal welfare policy, we do not offer options of elephant rides at Angkor Thom.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Wat Thmey (Killing Fields)
Wat Thmey has a small memorial stupa for victims of the Khmer Rouge and photo boards with images of some of those who were killed here. The open grounds also contain a large prayer hall.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Siem Reap
Drop-off will be at your hotel or at any point of your choice in the town centre of Siem Reap with its vibrant markets.

The great beauty of Angkor
paola-journeys, 29-08-2022
The site of Angkor is one of the most evocative places on the planet, full of beauty and worth the whole trip to Cambodia. It is worth dedicating as many days as possible to visiting the temples, both internals and externals. Don't miss Prea Khan and Neak Poan. For the organization of the tour, I suggest to contact Mr Bunna EK of Angkor-Travel tours in Siem Riep, who is a competent, honest, kind and helpful organizer. Impossible to forget the beauty of the temples of Angkor, with the sun and the rain. Enjoy your visit!
