A perfect add-on to any Southeast Asia trip, explore the Angkor Temple complex with an expert local guide. Built over a period of 400 years by a number of different rulers and covering an area of more than 400 sq km, the temple complex of Angkor was only rediscovered 150 years ago. This magnificent site holds incredible structures and sculptures from the Khmer Empire and is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. With its beautiful gardens, stone carvings, and endless photo opportunities, a visit to the magical and mysterious UNESCO World Heritage Site Angkor will remain with you forever.
  • Day 1 Siem Reap

  • Day 2 Siem Reap/Temples of Angkor (1B)

    After breakfast you will be met at your hotel by a local guide and set out for the Angkor Complex (6km from town) for a private tour. You will start exploring the Angkor Temples including the south gate of Angkor Thom and all the way to the Bayon and circle around the Bayon temple. You will then continue exploring the mysterious Royal city Angkor Thom. Its 50-tower temple is an awesome sight. At first glance it seems a shapeless mass of stone, but further scrutiny reveals a face, and then another and another until suddenly you are engulfed by the silent, heavy, enigmatic and silent gaze through half-closed eyes, staring out from a primitive and remote time. Further, you will visit the surroundings of the complex including the Baphou, Elephant Terraces, Lepper King Terrace and Royal Place area. In the afternoon, you visit the intricately carved Khmer ruins at Angkor Wat - one of the world’s most impressive ruins. The temple still owns fine Apsara carvings in Angkorian era art.

  • Day 3 Siem Reap/Temples of Angkor (1B)

    After breakfast, you will visit the picturesque Ta Prohm that had nearly disappeared into the jungle and remains an overgrown,oddly haunting and exotic scene. The magnificent roots of a tree, pushing between the huge stone blocks of the temple in a sort of embrace, evoke feelings that you may remember forever. You take a drive to the rural outskirt 35km from the town and visit to BanTeay Srei, the birthplace of Khmer classical style architecture. This is a small temple but with carvings which are impressive. In the afternoon, visit the local markets and school of arts called Artisan D’angkor for shopping.
