Siem Reap: Angkor Wat 2-Day Tour with Sunrise and Sunset

Siem Reap: Angkor Wat 2-Day Tour with Sunrise and Sunset

Your 2-day tour with an English speaking guide allows you to make the most of a 3 day temple pass. You will see all of the unmissable temples and learn a lot of new information. After this you'll be able to decide if you want to rest on day 3, revisit any of your favorites or find some final places within the region in a private Tuk-Tuk without missing out on vital knowledge about the ancient Khmer empire. Day 1 Experience the beauty and power of Angkor Wat, Cambodia’s most visited attraction. The UNESCO-listed archeological site has a long, rich history and still looks magnificent, even more so beneath the glow of a rising sun. On this small-group tour, know how its energy feels, rise early to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat, and then benefit from the cooler weather and fewer crowds of the morning to explore the surrounding temples. You can purchase your temple pass in advance online or at the ticket office after your guide collects you from your accommodation. As the day progresses, you will discover other temples, taking occasional rest and food breaks. Angkor Thom, the well-known jungle temple, famous both for its past and its more recent feature in the Tomb Raider movie; Bayon, home to the large smiling faces, and some of the lesser-known but still outstanding temples, some of the best in our world, like the Buddhist temple of Banteay Kdei, the pyramid temple, largely unrestored and used by monks. Ta Keo is a mountain temple built in the 10th century, which you will walk up, treading between the ancient and modern eras. Simply put, visit Angkor Wat and, step by step, see, feel, and learn more along with your guide for the day. It's a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Day 2 Within the Angkor complex are other magnificent temples. Preah Khan is the biggest temple on this loop, built by King Bayon for his father. The water around Neak Pean Island temple was used for bathing and health in the Angkor period. Ta Som has a distinctive big tree over the east gate and is formed with lots of sculptures of dancers with long hair; it was built for the king's sister. East Mebon, built for the ancestors, used to be in the middle of a reservoir and was constructed as early as the 10th century. Pre-Rup was built by the king for himself; often mistaken for a crematorium, a stone structure that looks similar to a coffin was used by Hindus to meditate within at the full moon. And Phnom Bakheang is at the top of a hill; its 33 towers represent the heavens. Life on earth is to be lived. Take the tour, which shows the interrelatedness of past, present, and future.

From Siem Reap: 2-Day Small Group Temples Sunrise Tour

Day 1 – Full Day Banteay Srei Temples and Grand Circuit Temple   Start your 2 days with pick-up from your hotel around 8:00 AM, you’ll head off to visit the most interesting temples outside Angkor Thom city. Your first stop is Pre Rup Hindu Temple, built in 961 or 962, which combines 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 and most skilfully crafted in Cambodia.   On the return journey, visit Neak Pean, a Buddhist temple on a circular artificial island within Jayatataka Baray, then continue to Preah Khan temple, a ruined but highly atmospheric mélange of tree roots and crumbling stone structures. Construction was commissioned by the prolific temple builder Jayavarman VII in honor of his father and a visit to this smaller site makes for an interesting contrast with the more imposing Angkor Wat. Preah Khan is currently being restored by the World Monument Fund and in places is in remarkably good condition. In the late afternoon, you’ll return to Siem Reap after a memorable day of exploration. Day 2 – Temples of Angkor with Sunrise   Spend your day temple-hopping with your local guide to make the most of your visit to the world-famous Angkor complex, a site full of temples built between the 19th and 13th centuries. Begin with pre-dawn departure (between 4:15 and 4:40 AM) from your hotel to catch the sunrise outside of Angkor Wat. Then, explore the interior of the great temple, spending a thorough 2 hours discovering its corridors, central chambers, and upper terraces. Your expert guide will decipher the myriad of stories behind the bas-relief carvings and give you insight into life during the height of the Khmer Empire. End your visit to Angkor with breakfast just outside the temple.   Continue the morning with a visit to the Southern Gate of Angkor Thom, flanked by a row of 54 stone figures on each side – gods to the left and demons to the right – and the fortified city of Angkor Thom. See its beautifully crafted central towers, covered in more than 200 enormous faces, before exploring the famous central terrace of the Leper King and the Terrace of Elephants. Finish your day with a visit to the temple Ta Prohm, once home to almost 3,000 monks. Return to your hotel at approximately 1:30 PM.  

Siem Reap: Angkor Wat Private Tuk-Tuk Tour

Siem Reap: Angkor Wat Private Tuk-Tuk Tour

Option 1 Experience the most famous and largest temples of the Angkor Wat region as well as hidden treasures on this private Tuk-Tuk journey from Siem Reap. Customize the start time, pick-up location, and number of travelers. Although your driver won't be a guide for within, he will be an English-speaking Cambodian with a great personality and more than able to answer your questions at each stop. The historic temples on this tour are some of the most beautiful, impressive, and best-preserved in the world. You can begin with an unforgettable sunrise and then explore in and around Angkor Wat itself and other temples that will give you wonderful insights into what life was like around these unique sites. Angkor Thom, while less famous than Angkor Wat, is arguably equally astounding in scale and ambition, and its grand approach is still humbling today. The temple of Bayon at its center is lined with countless beatific carved faces, gazing eternally at the surrounding forest. Ta Prohm is one of visitors' favorite sites, as it has been partially retaken by the jungle, giving it a beauty and tranquility all its own. Ta Keo was never finished and, as such, has a very different aspect from most of the Angkor temples. Its square, layered pyramid shape makes it one of the more dramatic sites on the tour, and climbing the terraces affords some beautiful views over the jungle. Banteay Kdei is also known as 'the citadel of monks' cells'. It is partially overgrown with towering, sinewy trees. The silky cotton tree roots weaving their way through the stones of the ruined walls are a famously beautiful sight. As this is a private tour, you are welcome to add more itinerary stops if you wish. Our Khmer driver will enrich your experience with his insight and passion. Book this tour to experience the mind-expending temples of Angkor firsthand. Option 2 You can take an entirely different route too, a loop of the further-out temples, and watch the sunset from Bakheang Mountain. The temple city of Angkor was the greatest metropolis in the world when London was just a village, and on this trip you'll see some of its greatest sites. Your first destination would be Pre Rup, an unbelievable Angkor site. After that, head to East Mebon, then on to the beautiful overgrown temple Ta Som, then the island shrine of Neak Pean. After that, it's off to Preah Khan, a temple at Angkor built in the 12th century for King Jayavarman VII to honor his father. Whichever option you choose, this private Tuk-Tuk tour will give you direct communication with our manager from the moment you receive a confirmation e-mail. We will adjust planned times and stops as necessary, and up to the very last minute, you can choose to spend longer with your driver, be dropped off at whichever location you choose, or even have him take you to explore parts of Siem Reap city, unless you prefer to go straight back to your hotel and reflect and rest.

Vone made our two day adventure through the breathtaking Angkor National Park a truely memorable and joyful experience. He was knowledgeable and generous with his insights, both of the Angkor Temple complexes and Cambodia's more recent history, sharing personal, family, and community anecdotes that gave added meaning our time in beautiful Cambodia. On top of this, Vone was an outstanding photographer. He knew all the best spots and was happy to help us capture the special shots. Vone was always smiling, and gave us an introduction and history lesson upon arriving at each temple. Once guiding us through, he would guide us to a photo opportunity before giving us time to explore. Once we were done and made our way back to the air-conditioned van, we were greeted with smiles, cold water and a cold towel to reset, before being whisked to the next site. If you want to beat the crowds, and have the experience you imagined at Angkor, book Vone, you won’t be disappointed!

We did the sunrise tour to the Angkor temples and really enjoyed it. Our sunrise was pretty sobering, but that's nobody's fault. Our guide Mr Phalla was always courteous and helpful, provided plenty of chilled water and gave us exciting information. Thanks to our guide, we have some great souvenir photos and are looking forward to doing the tour to the other temples with him. The tuk tuk is well maintained and safe.

We were happy to have Pal (guide) and Sal (driver) to show us the temples. Pal is a fun knowledgeable guide and Sal drove us safely to all temples and making sure we had a lot of cold water and refreshing towels. I can recommend this tour !!

Great tour - tiring but great. Pal is incredibly informative. Sal is a great driver. Both supportive and friendly. The cold waters and scented cold towers were lifesavers after each tour. I would highly recommend you take this tour.

This was a wonderful trip. Saruon Pal was knowledgeable, funny, and a wonderful photographer to boot. We strongly recommend this.
