Angkor Wat Tours



The Angkor Wat tours, you will stay in Siem Reap, the town next to Angkor which has a wide range of restaurants and bars, also has many humanitarian organizations in the area. They will guide you to visit Angkor Temples especially Angkor Wat which is a temple complex at built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples are justifiably regarded as one of the seven wonders of the world, ranking alongside such treasures as the Pyramids in Egypt and the Taj Mahal in India.

They were left abandoned to the jungle until their "discovery" by a French explorer in the late 19th century. The temples retain a sense of power and mystery in their overwhelming size and attention to detail. The local guides speak excellent English and have superb knowledge of all of the temples to help you get the most from your visit.

On the Angkor Wat tours can offer a range of hand-picked accommodation from small friendly guest houses to four-star hotels, depending upon your requirements. If you have a bit longer to stay, they can draw up a varied itinerary for you, combining all of the most interesting and spectacular sites. Why not combine a trip to Angkor with a few days in others province for a completely different cultural experience?

Any private Angkor Wat tours are designed to show travelers with limited time as much as possible of this fascinating country, and are led by a local tour leader or guide who can add insight to every stage of the journey. You can choose the grade of accommodation you would prefer from a selection that has been hand-picked by the tours for the comfort, atmosphere and friendly staff – most of which are locally-owned. They can also create a custom itinerary for you that include other destinations or incorporates special interests such as wildlife, art or social welfare.

You can choose any other itinerary plan as you like and below just one example:

Day 1: Once you arrival at Siem Reap airport, where you will be met by ones of tour representatives and transferred you to the hotel. Travel by private car or bus to some of the main temples of Angkor, including Angkor Thom, Bayon, Ta Phrom, still largely claimed by the jungle, and Angkor Wat itself. Accompanied by an English–speaking local guide, learn about the historical evolution of the Khmer kingdom and the building of the temples. Sufficient time is allowed at each site for you to explore at your own pace, take photographs, or just stare in wonder – plus a long break for lunch to shelter from the heat of the midday sun! At just before sunset, climb to the top of Angkor Wat (if you dare!) for a sight not to be missed. Return to the hotel by early evening.

Day 2: Early morning, If you prefer, take a boat trip to the floating village on the giant Tonle Sap Lake. In the afternoon, visit further temples within the Angkor complex, including Banteay Srei, with amazingly intricate detail carved in red sandstone. Again, the day is unhurried, giving you time of your own and avoiding the pressurized rush of typical guided tours. For the evening, a traditional Khmer dinner/dance show (included in price) is planned for your entertainment.

Day 3: Visit Kbal Spein, the "river of a thousand lingas", with ancient carvings on a riverbed and a scenic short trek through the jungle to reach it. The afternoon is free – you can spend more time at the temples, walk around the town, buy some local handicrafts in the market, swim in a local resort pool, or just relax.

Day 4: Transfer to the airport for your flight home.
