Day 1: Angkor Wat Sunrise & The Great City of Angkor Thom
Today we will meet in the hotel lobby after your nice breakfast 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.
We return to the hotel for breakfast and you can take some rest to recharge your energy for the next visit.
In the afternoon, 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 – Visit Baphuon, one of Angkor’s most beautiful temples from the 11th century. It was extensively renovated by the French and is now open to the public again – continue along the Terrace of Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King. To watch sunset over Phnom Bakheng is an optional.
I would like to suggest you to get an online ticket for Angkor temples because you can save time without going to the Angkor ticket office. The process of ordering your Angkor ticket is quick and easy.

Day 2: Jungle Temple of Ta Prohm, Banteay Srei & Grand Circuit Temples
In the morning after your great breakfast, we travel to Ta Prohm when it is nice and cool and there are fewer visitors, it is unique in that it is 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 head to Banteay Srei, Angkor’s ultimate art gallery. This petite pink temple is the jewel in the crown of Angkor-era sculpture. The elaborate carvings here are the finest found in Cambodia and the name translates as Fortress of the Women. The intricate detail here, considered too fine for the men’s hands.
After a lovely lunch in a restaurant near the temple, we explore Preah Khan temple, a ruined but highly atmospheric mélange of tree roots and crumbling stone structures. Construction of this site was commissioned by the great ‘temple builder’ Jayavaraman VII (in honour of his father) and a visit to this smaller site makes for an interesting contrast with the more imposing Angkor Wat – Neak Pean temples, an artificial island with a Buddhist temple on a circular island in Jayatataka Baray and other beautiful temples outside the Great City of Angkor. After two wonderful days, we will take you back to the hotel or any other place of your choice.
