One Day Angkor Experience With a Local

Description

This Angkor day tour concentrates on the Angkor Thom complex, the biggest temple complex in Cambodia and a place where more than one million people lived.

We start at the South Gate, an imposing gate decorated with many statues on both sides to welcome you. We walk through, wondering what is on the inside. Bayon Temple, the main temple for a whole complex – distinct from any other temple in Cambodia due to its towers – has more towers than other temples in Cambodia. Each pinnacle has four carved faces on it. The tour of Angkor Thom continues with the Elephant Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King.

Then we go outside the ancient city to the temple of Ta Prohm. Here giant spung trees and strangler figs climb directly from the walls. Are the trees holding the structure up, or are they threatening to tear it down? This temple, where the jungle is making a valiant attempt to reclaim the temple, was one of the sites used in making the film Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie.

To end the day, we end up at Angkor Wat itself, the largest temple in Cambodia and the largest religious temple in the world.

Jumreap sooa! We are a group of formers monks here in Siem Reap and we would love to show you what life is like at our monastery. We will take you to various pagodas in the area and tell you everything about the art displays and our daily activities. We will even introduce you to the head monk here at the monastery. You can ask him whatever questions you might have…and if you'd like, you can even participate in a meditation session. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
