Today, after your wonderful breakfast, we will meet in the hotel lobby at your desired time and travel to see Angkor Wat, the temple is considered the largest religious building in the world and is truly one of the wonders of the world. Believed to have been built as a temple and mausoleum for King Suryavarman II during the height of the Khmer Empire in the first half of the 12th century, Angkor Wat is the best preserved of the Angkorian temples. The central monument represents the mythical Mount Meru, the sacred mountain at the centre of the universe, which was home to the Hindu god Vishnu
After that we continue towards Ta Prohm, it is unique as it’s overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the ‘Tomb Raider Temple’ one of the most picturesque and memorable of the Angkor temples.
We take a break at a safe local restaurant for a drinks or lunch while the temperature is warm.
We head to Angkor Thom, first the ancient city of Angkor Thom. It was the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII. This city is surrounded by an 8 m high wall drawing a perfect square. You will enter the city from the ancient South Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with Elephants and four giant faces. And our highlight is the enigmatic and enchanting Temple of Bayon. The 54 towers are each crowned with the four faces of Avalokiteshvara (Buddha of Compassion), which bear more than a passing resemblance to the king himself.
After a wonderful day of excursion, I will take you back to your hotel or location of your choice. Is there a temple you want to see that isn’t listed here? Let us know and we can organize it for you!
I would like to suggest you to get Angkor temples online ticket because you can save time without going to Angkor ticket office. The ordering process for your Angkor ticket is quick and easy.
