Today after breakfast, you will be met in the hotel lobby by a Travel Beyond private guide for your full-day exploring the temples of Angkor, including lunch.
The Angkor Archeological Park is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking and one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia if not the world. Stretching over some 400-km squared (248 square miles), including forested area, the park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. You could spend weeks exploring the ruins, but on this visit, you will have a chance to see all the highlights.
You will start to visit to the South Gate of Angkor Thom where you can take a quiet, optional 1km (0.6 mi) walk along the wall and through the jungle to a hidden temple. Then visit the temples of Bayon, Baphoun and Terrace of Elephants and Leper King.
Take a break with a local lunch at Malis resturant.
After lunch you will visit the fabulous jungle temple of Ta Phrom and the whole late afternoon is set aside for a visit to the main temple, Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is one of mankind’s greatest achievements, and the intricate carvings at the temple of Angkor Wat demonstrate the skill of the Khmer builders. It had been constructed in the jungle in the early 12th century, then – two centuries later – was mysteriously abandoned by the Khmer civilization. Now Angkor Wat is the main reason tourists come to visit Cambodia.
Finish your day with an unforgettable sunset on the quiet east side of Angkor Wat before being transferred back to your hotel. Enjoy the remainder of your evening at leisure.
