08:00 - 12:00

This half-day tour will visit some of Angkor’s most well-known temple ruins, and we will use a traditional Remork (Cambodian motorized tuk-tuk) to venture into centuries of history. Your guide and Remork driver will wait for you at your hotel, and we head straight to the main entrance of the Angkor temples. Entry into the expansive realms of the Jayavarman kings of old requires an entrance pass (included in the touring option). After this, we enter the heart of the Angkor temples and drive via the South Gate of Angkor Thom to admire the beauty and learn all there is to know.

Angkor Thom is the last capital of the Khmers, with its Elephant Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King and the stunning Bayon temple. This 12th-century masterpiece lies at the very centre of Angkor Thom and is an archaeological wonder of symmetry and grandeur. The exterior gallery walls have extensive bas-reliefs, but the highlights are its 218 faces.

Part of the Angkor Thom is one of Angkor’ most distinctive monuments, the Bayon. Known for its 200-plus faces, silent but with the famous half-smile playing on their lips, this former temple is an unmissable stop. Erected by Jayavarman VII, The Bayon (literally “Great City”) is located in the geographical heart of Angkor Thom. The fifty four-tower temple is quite a remarkable sight: it forms a three-tiered pyramid with 54 towers, each dominated by over 4-metres high, mysterious faces facing out to the south, north, east and west. The Bayon is easily the most popular sight after Angkor Wat, and no visit is complete without a trip to see this unique temple. Phimeanakas Temple within the Royal Palace enclosure (pending renovation work) Baphuon Temple, the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King belong to the whole complex and are within easy walking distance of each other.

After seeing some of the amazing details put into these temples that have withstood the test of time, our Remork driver brings you back to your hotel in Siem Reap.
