Welcome to Temples of Angkor
Welcome to heaven on earth. Angkor (ប្រាសាទអង្គរ) is the earthly representation of Mt Meru, the Mt Olympus of the Hindu faith and the abode of ancient gods.

Private Temples and Lake Explorer from Siem Reap
Day 1: Temples of Angkor (Full Day) The temples of Angkor represent 600 years (802-1432) of Khmer civilisation - one of Asia’s greatest Kingdoms. Depart your hotel at 8.00 am, and spend the whole day exploring the awesome temples of Angkor. Angkor Wat is the world’s largest sacred building and an architectural masterpiece. Built in the 12th century the temple took 30 years to build and represents the Khmer civilisation at its grandest. We also visit 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. At ‘The Bayon’ (12th century) we see its beautifully crafted central towers, covered in more than 200 enormous faces, then explore the famous Terrace of the Leper King, and the Terrace of Elephants. After lunch and a rest break we set out to the jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm – one of the most atmospheric of all temples in Angkor. Once home to 2,740 monks, Ta Prohm today looks much as it did in the early 1850s, when French explorer Henri Mouhot ‘rediscovered’ this crumbling site. After exploring the maze-like interior of Ta Prohm, continue to see sunset at Pre Rup temple before return back to your hotel. Day 2: Tonle Sap Lake and Artisan D’Angkor (Half Day) This morning, start our program with Tonle Sap, also known as the ‘great lake’ is one of the two main topographical features of Cambodia. During the rainy season it can swell from 3,000 square kilometres to 7500 square kilometres. Tonle Sap is also one of the world’s richest sources of freshwater fish. Cruising along a canal, passing by unique floating villages completed with schools, restaurants and even a hospital, you may observe the daily events such as fishing nets being mended, children swimming and playing, floating pigpens and crocodile enclosures. The rooftop of this structure makes an excellent spot to take photos of the lake’s view and the surrounding area. Travel back to Siem Reap and visit Artisans d’Angkor focuses on training unschooled rural youth in traditional handicraft skills. This journey provides a truly amazing look into a remarkable way of life. End of services.
