What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Angkor Archaeological Park, Taphul, Siem Reap Cambodia

We will visit most of the best ancient buildings, which people should see within a day, and we will try our best to beat the tourist crowds as much as possible to ensure the peace of Angkor will take place.

1. A quieter spot to view the sun rising over Angkor Wat temple

2. An ancient royal city of Angkor Thom (the best-preserved South gate, the smiley-faced Bayon templ and Elephant terrace) shortly after the sun has shown up

3. Ta Prohm (the Tomb Raider temple) by 8am which most people haven't reached there

4. Back to the world's largest Angkor temple while others are having their lunch and siesta break

Duration: 8 hours

Stop At: Angkor Wat, Siem Reap 17254 Cambodia

The world's largest religious building building which was dedicated to the Hindu Vishnu god

Stop At: Bayon Temple, Angkor Thom, Siem Reap Cambodia

A unique temple with over 200 compassionate and smiley faces crowning its towers

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Angkor Thom Terrace of the Elephants, Siem Reap Cambodia

An ancient stadium seating located in the royal city

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Ta Prohm, National Road #6, Siem Reap 17252 Cambodia

An overgrown temple with huge tree growing out of the building, which was featured in the Hollywood Tomb Raider1

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes

Stop At: Angkor Archaeological Park, Taphul, Siem Reap Cambodia

Our guide will pick you up from the hotel lobby at 4:45am to view the sunrise over Angkor Wat temple from the outside. Shortly after the sun has shown up, we will head a little north to take pleasure in visiting Angkor Thom (the South gate, the smiley-faced Bayon temple and Elephant terrace), which is an ancient royal city, while the temperature is still low and with less tourists.

By 8am, the overgrown Ta Prohm temple, which was featured in the Hollywood Tomb Raider1, still has small amount of people. We'll take around an hour for paying a visit to this temple.

We understand that a power nap is important for those who get up very early, so we will send you back to rest in the hotel until 12:30pm and we'll get back to the world's largest religious Angkor Wat temple while people are having their lunch break. We generally get back to the hotel by 3pm or later if you would like to visit another temple around there.

Duration: 8 hours
