Angkor Wat, Bayon, Ta Prohm, Temples, Full Day and Sunset
Departing your hotel at 8:30 we will travel to Angkor Archaeological Park. First stop is Angkor Thom, which was the last capital of the Angkorian Empire and built by Angkor's greatest king, Jayavarman VII. The major attraction at Angkor Thom is the Bayon Temple, where you can marvel at the wise smiling faces. Afterwards, it is on to the Terrace of the Elephants. Used as a giant reviewing stand for public ceremonies and serving as the base for the King’s grand audience hall. The Terrace of the Leper King is another of Angkor’s mysteries, the walls of which are deeply carved with seated deities. Next is Ta Prohm, a jungle temple offering a strange beauty as the stoneworks are both held together and are being torn apart by vines. For many, this temple will be well known as it was featured in the film Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie.
After that we will take a break for lunch for an hour. This is a great time to ask your guide more questions about your mornings experiences.
Lunch finished we head to the main temple of Angkor Wat. Take your time to truly immerse yourself in this historical monument. Angkor Wat was built in the first half of 12th century by King Suryavarman II. The temple's balance, composition and beauty make it one of the finest monuments in the world. The sheer size of the monument makes it overwhelming, as it towers over the surrounding landscape. Towards the end of the afternoon, we will watch the sunset at Pre Rup, a Hindu temple built as the state temple of Khmer king Rajendravarman. This temple is very popular for its sunset views. At 6:00 PM, your tour comes to an end and your guide will transfer you to your hotel.
