What will be the experience on this tour?

With this personal excursion (duration approx. 8 hours) you can discover Angkor Wat, the largest sacred building in the world. There is barely any other place, which is as fascinating as Angkor Wat. Let yourself be enchanted by the unique sights of Angkor Thom City, The Bayon, Ta Phrom and Angkor WAt 8:00 am, we will pick you up at the hotel and it goes straight on to Angkor Wat, the mystic jungle temple Ta Prohm. It is worth knowing, that the temple was used as a backdrop for the Lara Croft movie “Tomb Rainer”. Ta Prohm belongs to the absolute highlights of the Angkor Temples. Violent “Strangler Figs” (Banyan Tree) penetrate deep into the brickwork and over the last hundred years, Ta Prohm was literally swallowed up by the jungle.

 

Following, the tour takes you to Angkor Wat, the former capital of Angkor. There you visit the impressive temple of The Bayon, with its mysterious faces, which are smiling in all four directions. The Bayon belongs beside Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm to the most famous sanctuaries of the ancient Khmer empire.

 

Further, you will visit in the personal excursion the pyramid temple Baphoun. This temple was build as a Hindu temple in the honor of Lord Shiva. A 180-Meter long stone staircase, leads to the entrance of the temple. From a height of 30 meters, you can enjoy a fascinating view.

 

We reach the Elephant Terrace and the Phimeanakas temple through a small path from the rear exit. Besides the two wading stone lions, leads a steep staircase to the temple, where you can again enjoy a beautiful view. At Sras Sei, a small artificial lake just 50 meters from the temple, we will make a short stop. The terrace of the Lepraking is just north. There you can admire the numerous beautiful reliefs of the ancient Khmer art.

 

After the lunch break, our tour will take us to Angkor Wat, the largest architectural masterpiece of the Khmer empire. There is nowhere in the world, such an artistic and spiritual composition as Angkor Wat. In the moment, you enter Angkor Wat; you will feel the soul of the Khmer, which is still alive in the temples. Discover the secrets of Angkor Wat with your experienced guide. He shows you all – he tells you the stories and legends, which are hidden behind the sandstone ornamentation and pediments.

 

Before we head back to the hotel, take a stroll past the ponds and enjoy a last view of the impressive view of Angkor Wat.
