Full description
Start with a pick-up from your hotel at around 8:00 AM and travel with your small group to the most interesting temples outside Angkor Thom city. Begin with a first stop at Pre Rup Hindu Temple, built as the state temple of Khmer King Rajendravarman and dedicated in 961 or early 962. It is a temple mountain of combined brick, laterite and sandstone construction. Then, drive to the intricately carved and well-preserved Banteay Srei. The detailed reliefs on this smaller sandstone structure are regarded as the finest, most skillfully crafted in Cambodia. Banteay Srei has only been accessible since the late 1990s, when the Khmer Rouge left the area. End your tour at Angkor with lunch at the temple and a short rest. On the return journey, visit Neak Pean, a Buddhist temple on a circular artificial island in Jayatataka Baray, then continue to Preah Khan temple, a ruined but highly atmospheric mélange of tree roots and crumbling stone structures commissioned by the prolific temple builder Jayavarman VII in honor of his father. Preah Khan is currently being restored by the World Monument Fund and in places is in remarkably good condition and a visit to this smaller site makes for an interesting contrast with the more imposing Angkor Wat. In the late afternoon you’ll return to Siem Reap after a memorable day of exploration.

We had an amazing day with Bun our guide. He is very knowledgeable of the area and his country’s culture and history. He has first-hand experiences to illustrate Cambodia’s recent history. He is passionate about the old history too which will make you hear more and more about the kings that have built these astonishing temples. We highly recommend Journey Cambodia and Bun for your next temple quest.

Really great tour to see more of Angkor citi. Sok was a really good guide with perfect English skills and loads of knowledge around the history of the single temples. Cool water and cold towels during the whole tour made even the humidity and heat less bad. Would recommend this tour to anyone

Nice, inspiring and incredibly beautiful

We had a great trip with our guide PI. He has an amazing knowledge of Khamer history, and an in-depth knowledge of the temples. The next day we were on the Angkor Wat sunrise Tour which was also super cool. I would definitely recommend going on both trips as you get to the amazing temples without 500 Chinese by the more familiar Thanks for a few good days.
