temples discovered

Skipping Angkor Wat and the Ta Phrom temple when in Siem Reap would almost be impossible. If you have only
half a day to spare or just need to see these must-see temples, then this is the tour.
Not even words and images explain the sheer beauty of Angkor!

WHY THIS TOUR?

Siem Reap’s name and fame in the international world of travel has almost solemnly been established on Cambodia’s most valuable monument – the Angkor temples.

Constructed under the ruling of the Jayavarman Kings from the early 12th century onward, it now welcomes visitors to give them an awe-inspiring insight of the vastness of this UNESCO World Heritage listed site to leave every travel in awe once meeting the temples and pagodas of a past as grand as the complex itself.

Main stage for seeking out what made Angkor the shining jewel of Indochina is unarguably the Angkor Wat. For 4 hours, be mesmerized and be totally awestruck as we dwell with your guide through the corridors of Angkor Wat and the renowned Ta Phrom temple.

Our half day tour starts from the entrance of your hotel lobby, where a professional English-speaking guide and driver welcome you for entering one of the world’s most architectural masterpieces of times gone by. Via the official entrance, we head straight over to Angkor Wat, erected in the 12th century and covering an areas almost 210 hectares. The pride of the country featuring on its blue-red-white coloured national flag, Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s ancient temple city which is one of the wonders of the oriental world.

Your guide will lead the way in exploring the many galleries with columns, pavilions, courtyards, libraries and ponds full of water reflecting the towering temple. Intricately-carved reliefs extend the length of the outer walls and corridors, depicting mythological scenes and day to day life at the time of Angkor’s construction, built under the watchful eye of King Soryavarman II, Angkor Wat is the cultural home of the Khmer people, in various guises, and remains awe-inspiring with its five famous towers that rise into the sky even for repeating visitors.

Next on our itinerary is the Ta Phrom: one of these bucket list temples when entering the Angkor temple region because of its entwined connection with the Siem Reap jungle. Originally constructed as a monastery in the same century as Angkor Wat by Jayavarman VII and a shrine for its mother, archaeologists decided to leave its jungle-clad cover with huge tree roots covering the base and the roof of Ta Phrom as a reminder how the first visitors found this temple. Without a doubt, Ta Phrom has been on the foundation of Angkor’s huge popularity.

It is regretfully time to head back to your hotel under the professional guidance of your guide and driver.
