SIERMEAP DAILY TOUR

 FULL DAY TOUR OF SIEMREAP AND ANGKOR WAT

 
Angkor Wat complex day trip

 
Tour Code: REPF1
Tour departure: Daily
Duration (approximate):08:00-18:00 hrs
Transfer from/to hotel included
Meals included: Lunch at local restaurant
Private tour: Minimum 1 person
Language: All major foreign languages

Transfer from Siem Reap International Airport or hotel directly to the Angkor temple complex. In the morning, visit the most famous of all the temples on the plain of Angkor: Angkor Wat. The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing. Its distinctive five towers are emblazoned on the Cambodian flag and the 12th century masterpiece is considered by art historians to be the prime example of classical Khmer art and architecture. Angkor Wat’s five towers symbolize Meru’s five peaks - the enclosed wall represents the mountains at the edge of the world and the surrounding moat, the ocean beyond.
Lunch at a local restaurant.
Visit the antique capital of Angkor Thom (12th century): See the South Gate (with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk), Bayon temple (unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara), the Elephants Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King and Ta Prohm.  The latter is a beautiful jungle temple that has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. Transfer back to Siem Reap International Airport or hotel.



 
Beng Mealea, Koh Ker Day tour
 
Tour code: REPF2
Tour departure: Daily
Duration (approximate):08:00-18:00 hrs
Transfer from/to hotel included
Meals included: Picnic Lunch
Private tour: Minimum 1 person
Language: All major foreign languages

Morning, drive to the remote Beng Mealea temple through the typical Khmer countryside (80Kms from Siem Reap). There is a lot to see in the approximately 2-½ hours drive as it takes you through many lively villages and along kilometers of rice paddies. Explore the long abandoned ruins of Beng Mealea (11th century), still strangled by the overgrown jungle. Lunch box will be provided at the site.
A further 1 hr drive brings you to Koh Ker, situated in the northeast of Siem Reap. Discover the long abandoned temples in the forests of northern Cambodia. Also known as Chok Gargyar, it served as the capital of Jayavarman IV (reigned 928-42). His son and successor Harshavarman I moved the capital back to Angkor in 944. There are a remarkable number of religious buildings in the Koh Ker region, considering the short space of time that it was the capital of the empire. There are more than 30 major structures and experts believe there may have been as many as 100 minor sacred buildings in the region. It was also a prolific period for gigantic sculpture and several of the most impressive pieces in the National Museum in Phnom Penh come from Koh Ker, including a huge garuda (half-man, half-bird creature). Return to Siem Reap.
