Get ready for a day of discovering magnificent temples! Depart in the morning at the temples of Angkor in Tuk Tuks. The Angkor Archaeological Park is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking and one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia if not the world. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, the park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. You could spend weeks exploring the ruins, but on this day tour, you will have a chance to see all the highlights.
Angkor Wat is one of mankind's greatest achievements, and the intricate carvings at the temple of Angkor Wat demonstrate the skill of the Khmer builders. It was constructed in the jungle in the early 12th century, then - two centuries later - was mysteriously abandoned by the Khmer civilization. Now Angkor Wat is the main reason tourists come to visit Cambodia.
We'll head to the fabulous jungle temple of Ta Prohm. Ta Prohm is particularly amazing in the early morning when all you can hear are the sounds of the jungle, before the crowds arrive. After Ta Prohm, you will visit the South Gate of Angkor Thom where you can take a quiet optional 1km walk along the wall and through the jungle to a hidden temple. Then visit the temples of Bayon, Baphuon and Terrace of Elephants and Leper King.
To relax after a day of temple exploration, we'll head to Tonle Sap Lake - the largest freshwater body in all Southeast Asia, to enjoy a sunset river cruise with local beer included with the beautiful sunset! After a day of exploring, feel free to relax or head out for dinner or return to your hotel.
