This tour will start after breakfast around 8 o’clock in the morning. We’ll start by heading out to the Angkor Ticket Office before going to the South Gate of Angkor Thom. Here you’ll enter the ancient city along a causeway which is flanked by smiling statues of gods on the left side and grimacing demons on the right. There are 54 statues on each side.
We’ll get out to explore the entrance. Here you’ll see the first face of Angkor smiling down on you and this is a perfect opportunity to get some photos. The ornate entrance, long causeway and surrounding moat makes the area very photogenic.
When we get inside Angkor Thom, we’ll head to Bayon temple which sits exactly in the middle of the ancient city. At Bayon, you’ll see more than 200 faces smiling down on you from nearly 50 towers. This popular temple was was at the centre of the entire Khmer empire.
You’ll continue the tour to see the two terraces – the Elephant Terrace and the Leper King Terrace. We will then walk to visit Baphuon temple and Phimeanakas. These two temples are also favourites for many people who visit the park. To finish off the morning, we will visit Preah Palilay, Preah Pithu Group and Prasat Suor Prat.
We’ll stop for lunch inside Angkor Thom. There are many local restaurants or food stalls in the area.
In the afternoon, we’ll go to spend a few hours exploring the vast grounds of Angkor Wat temple. Your guide will explain the history and structure as we walk around the grounds. If you still have any energy left, we can also go to see the famous Ta Prohm temple. Also known as the the “Tomb Raider” temple, you’ll instantly recognise it from the famous Lara Croft movies.
