Full description

Tread in the footsteps of holy Hindu men, Buddhist rulers, and Khmer kings on a guided day trip from Siem Reap to see the highlights of the UNESCO-listed Angkor Archaeological Park. Following a hotel pickup, visit Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple, and Ta Prohm. Watch the sunset at Phnom Bakheng.

Look back to the 12th-century Khmer empire and explore the magnificent monuments of Angkor Wat, where the temple complex tells the Hindu and Buddhist history of the ancient city. Cross the moat and marvel at the towering outer wall.

As you follow your guide around one of the world's most enduring architectural achievements, wander along the rectangular galleries and get up close to the bas-reliefs carved into the sandstone walls. Continue to Angkor Thom to explore the Khmer Empire's last capital city. Admire the stone figures that greet you at the southern gates, and stroll towards the Bayon Temple to see the etchings of smiling faces at its central peak. Visit the Terrace of the Leper King and the Terrace of the Elephants. Take a break and enjoy lunch at your own expense before visiting the iconic temple of Ta Prohm, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. Soak up the atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings.

After a full day of exploring Angkor's highlights, climb the steps to the temple mountain of Phnom Bakheng, the state temple of the first Khmer capital in the region, to watch the sunset. Then, make the return journey to Siem Reap and be dropped off at your hotel.
