One Day Tour-Once an experienced life


The silhouette of the largest religious monument ever built slowly emerges in front of you as darkness gives way to the first rays of dawn. . . . This is a truly spectacular sight and well worth the early start today! You may wish to assume the classic viewing position by the lotus pond and see Angkor Wat and its reflection, or find yourself a different vantage point to appreciate and photograph this mesmerizing temple. When the colours of sunrise begin to fade you will explore the inner parts of Angkor Wat, learn about its history and the fascinating stories behind the intricate carvings adorning the walls of the temple galleries.

Itinerary

After we finish touring Angkor Wat, we will drive straight to the ancient city through its South Gate. In the very centre lies the temple of Bayon - silent witnesses of time, the 216 enigmatic faces gaze over the horizon and one can only wonder what they have seen throughout the ages. I will point out the best angles for photography here and give explanation of the many intricate carvings on the walls of the galleries. You will then continue to Baphuon, Phimeanakas, Terrace of the Elephants and Terrace of the Leper King.
Having gained its 21st century fame from the Tomb Raider movie, the charming and iconic Ta Prohm features on most visitors' itineraries and rightfully so. Here nature takes over ancient man made structures and golden Spung tree (Tetrameles Nudiflora) roots wrap themselves around mossy stones in a tight embrace.
