Full Tour itinerary

First thing Ta Prom Temple:
Start the exploration at an illustrious temple with fewer crowds. First, you will visit Ta Prohm which is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found- overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the so-called Tomb Raider Temple, as it was used during the filming of the movie, one of the most picturesque and memorable temples of the Angkor complex.

Angkor Thom Discovery:
Head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, enter the city through the ancient gate, an impressive stone entryway carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the center of the city, famed for its enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.

Lunch at local restaurant:
We will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasty Cambodian dishes.

Visit Angkor Wat:
Lastly, we will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your storytelling guide, you will be mesmerized by the rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterwards, you will return to your hotel.
