Day 1: Sunrise at Angkor Wat, Jungle Temple of Ta Prohm

Today we will meet in the hotel lobby at 4:45am and travel to see Angkor Wat at Sunrise, 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 and enjoy the swimming pool to recharge your energy for the next visit.

In the afternoon, we travel to Ta Prohm, a unique place 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.

Note: 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: Angkor Thom Complex and Grand Circuit Temples (Sunset Phnom Bakheng)

In the morning, after your breakfast we head to Angkor Thom, the first 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.

After having 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 as Ta Som, East Mebon, the brick pyramid-shaped temple of Pre Rup and the peaceful Royal swimming pool of Sras Srang. Your day finish with a watch sunset over Phnom Bakheng hilltop temple (optional).

Day 3: Banteay Srei, Lost temple of Beng Mealea, Rolous Group

You’ll be picked up from your hotel at 8:00 am. We drive further north to Banteay Srei, Angkor’s ultimate art gallery. This petite pink temple is that the jewel within the crown of Angkor-era sculpture. The elaborate carvings here area unit the best found in Cambodia and also the name interprets as ‘Fortress of the Women’. Then, we journey to the remote charming ruin temple covered by vegetation, Beng Mealea temple. This titanic temple is a slumbering giant lost for centuries in the forests of Cambodia. It’s confronted with a mass of ruins half devoured by a ravenous jungle.

We take a lunch break in a local Khmer-style restaurant.

We travel back in time to one of the earliest capitals in the Angkor region, Hariharilaya, now known as Roluos – visit the brick temple of Lolei, which originally stood on an island in the centre of the Baray (reservoir) – Preah Ko (sacred cow), named after Shiva’s mount Nandin – Bakong, the oldest temple mountain, which later became the symbol of the Khmer kings. It is a huge pyramid whose cardinal points are marked by huge elephants.
