What To Expect

Angkor Wat
We begin with a pre-dawn departure (4.30 to 4.45am depending on the time of year) from your hotel for sunrise outside Angkor Wat. Enter the great temple in darkness from the little-visited eastern side, and creep along hoary cloistered corridors past the longest stretch of bas-relief carvings in the world.

Angkor Thom South Gate
The south gate of Angkor Thom is the best preserved. It is approached from outside via a causeway that extends about fifty meters across a moat. On each side of the causeway are railings fashioned with 54 stone figures engaged in the performance of a famous Hindu story: the myth of the Churning of the Ocean. On the left side of the moat, 54 'devas' (guardian gods) pull the head of the snake 'Shesha' while on the right side 54 'asuras' (demon gods) pull the snake's tail in the opposite direction. In this myth, the body of the snake is wrapped around the central mountain—Mt. Meru—perhaps corresponding here to the Bayon temple at the center of the site. In any case, the myth relates that as the Devas pulled the snake in one direction and the gods pushed in the other, the ocean began to churn and precipitate the elements. By alternating back and forth, the ocean was 'milked', forming the earth and the cosmos anew.

Bayon Temple
Angkor Thom is the majestic site once served as the Khmer Empire's glistening capital city. Take a moment to consider its grandiosity before venturing inside the city. Arriving at the temple at Bayon, appreciate its beautifully crafted central towers covered in more than 200 enormous faces.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

Terrace of the Elephants
The 350m-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 hall. It has five outworks extending towards the Central Square-three in the center and one at each end. The middle section of the retaining wall is decorated with life-size garuda and lions; towards either end are the two parts of the famous parade of elephants complete with their Khmer mahouts.

• Admission Ticket Free

Ta Prohm Temple
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. After exploring the maze-like interior of Ta Prohm, return to your hotel after a long but fulfilling day, which will leave you with a lifetime of memories of one of the wonders of the world.

Great experience

Saroun Pal was an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgeable about the temples and the history of the Angkor! He went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our trip. Our driver, Mr. Ruth, was also very attentive and had cold water always ready. This tour is amazing! I would only recommend it for the physically fit and those who are steady on their feet. I would also add the warning that women are required to wear pants or a dress that goes down to their ankles. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone coming to Siem Reap!
Best day in Angkor wat sunrise tour

Mr Sokpee Sumsot was great! He was professional and knowledgeable . Him and the driver arrived on time and were both lovely to be around. They made sure to give us the best experience and show us the must see temples. At every stop the driver gave us cold water and fresh cold towel which was great.

We had a great day and we want to say thank you for taking such good care of us

Thanks
Tal
Amazing guided tour and Angkor Wat sunrise.
Jennifer B, 09-09-2022
Incredible tour and guide Saruon, I had an excellent time exploring the temples, the intricate detail of the temples are incredible! Saruon was extremely knowledgable about the religions and explained the carvings as we went along. The sunrise was so good, a big highlight for me. Also I got some great photos, which is much appreciated, being a solo traveller I appreciated the time Saruon took to make sure I went home with some great photos. Also should our to Kocsal the driver who kept us cool with cold water and refreshment wipes upon each time we boarded the bus. Thank so much!
Customised Sunrise Tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunrise tour with Sok Chea. He was very knowledgeable and clearly communicated interesting facts about the temples and surrounding areas but also included information about Cambodia more proudly.

Due to flight cancellations, we only had 24 hours in Siem Reap which meant we had to customise the tour to end early including being dropped off straight to the airport. Sunrise Tour company were very accomodating of our request and customised the tour for us so that we could fit as much in. We really appreciated it.

Sok Chea also knew all the great locations to take photos for us and very promptly sent these through to us. The driver was also very polite and the vehicle was clean and roomy. Would definitely recommend.
Best way to visit the temples
_laura_durd, 24-08-2022
Bun was a wonderful guide. He not only new every secret of the temples, he also shared his personal life history during the war.
After the sunrise, where Bun explained some history and helped us take the best shots, we went to have breakfast to a local restaurant. After that, we kept visiting the park with very detailed explanations.
Even if it was hot and humid, they gave us plenty of water.
Would repeat.
