Detailed Itinerary

At 8:00 Hotel Pick-up & Transfer to Angkor Archaeological Park

In the morning, your professional guide will wait for you in the hotel lobby, and then a comfortable and capacious experienced-driven Tuk Tuk will transfer you to ticket office and then continue:

Morning: Visit Banteay Kdei & Ta Prohm

Let's start this Angkor day tour from Banteay Kdei to Ta Prohm. Follow your guide to take a morning walk around Banteay Kdei is peaceful and quiet. Its name means “Citadel of Chambers”, which is apt; the ruins are a fascinating maze of chambers that are a delight to explore. Also serving as a Buddhist temple and reported to be the first temple built by Jayavarman VII in 1181 AD, these ruins have been home to an active monastery at multiple time periods since their construction in early the 13th century, up until the 1960s.

Walk through from the east Gate to the west gate. The next temple to visit is Ta Prohm When Lara Croft and Tomb Raider pushed Hollywood images of Ta Prohm temple into cinemas around the world in 2001, they consolidated the case for Cambodia as a tourist destination. Little over fifteen years later, millions of visitors flock to Siem Reap each year, many of whom will have their picture taken under “that tree” that Angelina Jolie stood upon during one of the movie’s action scenes.

In the same morning: Ta Nei & Ta Keo

In the same morning, your professional guide will take you to visit Ta Nei the hidden jungle temple was built during the reign of King Jayavarman VII, in the late 12th century, a stone monument dedicated to the principle of Buddhism. There has been no restoration as yet only preservation. 

And then we returning back to visit Ta Keo is the first temple built entirely in sandstone and as such serves as a milestone in Khmer history. Enormous blocks of stone were cut to a regular size and placed in position. The absence of decoration at Ta Keo gives it simplicity of design that separates it from the other monuments.

Lunch is on your own and your private guide is also glad to provide some recommendations the restaurant nearby temple

After Lunch: visit Angkor Wat

Your private guide and driver will take you to vist Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation – first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist. It is the world's largest religious building. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.

Afternoon: Angkor Thom & Bayon 

Let's start this afternoon to visit Angkor Thom Temple located in present day Cambodia, was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer empire. It was established in the late twelfth century by king Jayavarman VII. It covers an area of 9 km², within which are located several monuments from earlier eras as well as those established by Jayavarman and his successors. At the centre of the city is Jayavarman's state temple, the Bayon, with the other major sites clustered around the Victory Square immediately to the north. Angkor Thom seems not to be the first Khmer capital on the site, however. Yasodharapura, dating from three centuries earlier, was centred slightly further northwest, and Angkor Thom overlapped parts of it. The most notable earlier temples within the city are the former state temple of Baphuon, and Phimeanakas, which was incorporated into the Royal Palace. The Khmers did not draw any clear distinctions between Angkor Thom and Yashodharapura: even in the fourteenth century an inscription used the earlier name. (Higham 138) The name of Angkor Thom — great city — was in use from the 16th century.

The Bayon was the last state temple to be built at Angkor, and the only Angkorian state temple to be built primarily as a Mahayana Buddhist shrine dedicated to the Buddha, though a great number of minor and local deities were also encompassed as representatives of the various districts and cities of the realm. It was the centrepiece of Jayavarman VII's massive program of monumental construction and public works.
