What you can expect
Devote an entire day to exploring the incredible temples at Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom under the leadership of a local, English-speaking guide. Discover the UNESCO-listed ruins at Angkor Wat and the ancient capital city of Angkor Thom—established by the prosperous Khmer Empire in the 12th century.
Get picked up from your Siem Reap hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and head straight for the ruins. As you motor towards Angkor Wat, learn about its history as the world's largest religious monument, replete with Hindu-Buddhist architecture that took 30 years to complete. Follow your guide inside, glimpsing intricate stonework as you wander galleries that have been shockingly well-maintained.
From Angkor Wat, head north towards Angkor Thom. This majestic site once served as the Khmer Empire's glistening capital city. Take a moment to consider its grandiosity before venturing inside the city. Arriving at the temple at Bayon, appreciate its beautifully crafted central towers covered in more than 200 enormous faces.
Enjoy lunch at your own expense, and then pay a visit to Ta Prohm—a temple set in the midst of the jungle. Wander the maze-like ruins of this ornate worship site, marvelling at the fig trees that threaten to overtake the edifice. Absorb a late evening breeze and enjoy the peaceful, rural atmosphere before heading back to your hotel.
