Why we love this trip

  • This private guided tour enables you to see the sights at your own pace

  • Enjoy lunch at a training restaurant that serves delicious food and helps underprivileged youths at the same time

  • There is plenty of time to explore Angkor Wat and the impressive surrounding temples

Is this trip right for you?

  • Cambodia can get quite hot - please note you will be walking around the Angkor temples in this heat, which can be tiring. Be sure to bring suitable footwear and drink lots of water.

  • This is a private itinerary so it will just be you and/or your booking party.

  • There will be free time in the evenings for your own interests, and your guide will be happy to recommend restaurants and places of interest.

Today you’ll spend a full day visiting the amazing temples of Angkor on a guided tour. Begin with Angkor Thom, the 'Great Royal City', famous for its series of colossal human faces carved in stone. The impressive Bayon temple is the centrepiece. The temples are thought to represent the cosmic world and are about balance and symmetry, and the iconic archaeological site is a wonder to behold. Angkor Wat is the largest and most complete structure that you will visit. It is the only one of Angkor's temples with its entrance facing to the west (the others face east). This is because it was constructed as a funerary temple for King Suryavarman II, and a westerly countenance was seen to represent a sunset. You’ll also visit Ta Prohm, a temple where nature has taken over. It’s an incredible sight, with large trees embedding themselves in the stone foundations of the structure.

Included Activities
  • Siem Reap - Angkor Wat temples guided tour
  • Siem Reap - Three Day Angkor Pass
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
Start early this morning as you travel the short distance out to the rose-coloured Banteay Srei. It’s not large, but it’s considered to be the best preserved of all of Cambodia’s temples, and the detailed and intricate stone carvings mean that the temple is sometimes referred to as ‘the jewel in the crown of Angkorian art’. You will then return to the main temple complex to explore the maze of vaulted corridors at Preah Khan, another complex that has been largely reclaimed by the jungle. Later on you have the opportunity to visit the Sala Bai Hotel School, where underprivileged local youths learn skills that enable them to find gainful employment in the hospitality industry. Then enjoy a lunch prepared by students at the school (please note that this is closed on public holidays and school holidays and an alternative restaurant will be used). Your ticket for the Angkor ruins enables you to spend more time exploring this memorable archaeological area if you wish. Maybe end the day with a sunset view of the temples.
