Know More about this tour


You will be picked up between 4:20am to 5:20am and set out early to see the sunrise at Angkor Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Pay for the entrance and make your way to the first stop at Angkor Wat to see the sunrise. Visit the largest and most impressive of all Angkor temples, considered among one of the New7Wonders of the World.
Angkor Wat was built between 1113-1150 AD and dedicated to Vishnu, the Hindu god of preservation. It's the best preserved of all the temples. Its layout and its scale are simply breathtaking, the wall surrounding the enclosure measures 1,000 by 800 meters and the moat, said to represent the oceans of the world is 200 meters wide. Angkor Wat is an architectural allegory of the mythical Mount Meru in the center of the world (Himalaya). This amazing temple homes the longest continuous bas relief in the world, which runs along the outer gallery walls.
We also explore the Angkor Thom complex. Its vast walls, some 6m wide, 8m high and 13km in length contain many monuments. Inside the walls the king, his relatives and officials, military officers and priests took residence, the rest of the people lived outside of the great enclosure, between the two artificial lakes. Our visit will begin with the South Gate, a beautiful introduction to Angkor Thom with well-restored statues of Asuras (demons) and gods lining the bridge.
Inside the complex, we will first visit the Bayon with 200 endless smiling faces. This temple mountain situated in the center of Angkor Thom City where sets the Bayon apart from many other Angkor monuments.
and then we continue the tour to Ta Phrom was a monastery built by the king Jayavarman VII as a residence for his mother as well as a school.Ta Phrom has been controversially left to the destructive power of the jungle by French archaeologists to demonstrate the awesome power of nature. It has been largely consumed by the jungle and as you will climb through the dilapidated stone structures you will see many giant trees growing out of the top of the temple itself. At every turn you will expect to see Indiana Jones (Lara Croft) step out from behind a fallen pillar around you.This tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel or any requested drop off point within the city center.

    Nak was an amazing tour guide. He was very knowledgeable on the history of the Khmer people. Comfortable ride in an air conditioned van on the way and in between temples. The cool rags were refreshing in the cambodian heat.

    Me and my mum had such a wonderful time with our very knowledgeable tour guide Sath! Would highly recommend to all visiting Angkor Wat to engage our friend Sath for a tour! Kind, courteous and with excellent English , he made our trip!! (Also takes amazing photos!)

    Wonderful experience with our guide Siekkong on a day-long trek through Angkor Archaeological Park, starting with the early morning visit to Angkor Wat. Siekkong was exceptionally knowledgeable, and provided a fantastic experience throughout the day. Having him as a guide offered knowledge and insight that deepened our understanding and appreciation of each location we visited. We thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated his company. The pre-dawn wake-up call is worth it, and our only regret was not having another day to visit. Highly recommend.

    Sen was an absolutely amazing tour guide!! We have just returned from an incredible sunrise tour with Sen and our lovely driver James. Sen's tour was lots of fun and he has so much knowledge of not only Angkor Wat but the entire area which was extremely valuable. He also knows all the best spots for photos away from the crowds which is another bonus of this tour! Thank you Sen and James for a wonderful day!
