Siem Reap "Siam Boarder" or "Siam Repelled" is the former capital of Cambodia and is the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the ancient and magnificent Angkor Empire. We have planned an exciting Angkor Wat UNESCO Sites Sightseeing 1Day Tour that will allow you to explore the most significant monuments of this once glorious kingdom (802-1432). 

Our morning begins adventure with the Angkor Thom "Great City" you will discover the ancient, walled city which includes the towers of Bayon with its 54 once covered in gold, mysterious chiseled-in-stone "portraits",  to the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King.

Our afternoon will include the temple of Angkor Wat, built between the years 1113 and 1150. Today, it is still used as a place of worship for our Hindu brothers and sisters. Our expert guides will help unlock the mysteries of the temple which has often been compared to the great cathedral at Chartres, France for its grandeur and spiritual power. 

We conclude our day with exploration of Bantay Kdei, a Buddhist monastery dating from the 12th century and to Srah Srang, also known as the "pool of ablutions", being first on our important sites to visit. 

Ta Prohm, this temple is famous because of the synergy of nature and a man-made structure whose structural integrity is maintained by strangler fig trees not to mention the films of "Indiana Jones" and "Lara Croft, Tomb Raider".  From Ta Prom we venture to the glorious and largest religious structure in the world, 

Our late afternoon will include the view of the sunset on top of Phnom Bakeng Hill.
AM: Starting point can be at your hotel or can be from picking you up at airport arriving via morning flight. 

Tour begins to visit Angkor Thom was the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII. This city is surrounded by an 8 m high wall; each side of city is 3 kilometers long. It draws a perfect square you access this town through 5 gates, 4 of them represent the cardinal points and the 5th one the Victory Gate was the one leading straight to Royal Palace areas.

After passing through the south gate, you will go down along this shady road to the Bayon temple. This temple lies exactly in the center of the city. The particularity of this monument is the 54 towers representing the 54 provinces of the then Great Khmer Empire. Each tower has 4 faces. This is the only temple in Cambodia depicting scenes of the everyday life at the time of the empire.

From the Bayon continue by walk to the Baphoun recently re-opened to the public. There you will pass by the Phimeanakas the location of the Royal Palace. The only remaining are a pound and a temple. The palace was made of wood and did not survive the time and the wars.

Then continue to the Terrace of the Elephants. This Terrace was the place where the parade was done for the king. Next is the Terrace of the Leper King, depicting the water world.

PM: Continues your visit to temples on the small circuit, Kravan temple, Banteay Kdei temple, Srah Srang, the royal swimming pool, the pool of ablution, Takeo temple, Tommanon temple, Chaosay Tevoda

Ta Prohm-
 is one of the most popular temples of the Angkor Complex. This temple was built in the memory of the King Jayavarman VII’s mother. When found by the French conservators at the end of the 19th century, they deliberately left this temple in the same condition as it was discovered, overgrown by strangler fig and silk-cotton trees, giving the temple a mystical and romantic appeal.

Your tour continues to Angkor Wat. The magnificent Angkor Wat Temple was built by Suryavarman II in early 12th century. Angkor Wat is constructed following the model of the temple mountain symbolizing the mount Merou, home of the gods. Considered as the masterpiece of the Khmer architecture, this Vishnuite temple is the King’s funerary temple that is why the temple is oriented to the west. Inside the temple, the walls are covered by carvings and bas-reliefs depicting the Hindu mythology and the wars Suryavarman II made during his reign. As well Angkor Wat is well known for the 1850 Apsaras dancers decorating the all temple. But like most say, it takes a life time to discover all the wonders of this temple.

Ending point can be by dropping at your hotel or dropping at airport to board your flight to your next destination.
