Angkor Wat Tours

A monumental spiritual masterpiece representing Mount Meru, home of the Hindu gods, the arresting Angkor Wat, with its innumerable unique carvings and intricate bas-reliefs, is an unmissable celestial celebration of Khmer craftsmanship.
Bayon
Once the center point and state temple of the Khmer kingdom, the extraordinary baroque-style temple-mountain of Bayon exudes an enigmatic authority, its 54 gothic towers adorned with 216 gargantuan smiling faces whose eyes follow you everywhere you go.
Angkor Thom
Beyond a cosmic ocean, guarded by snake-wielding demons and gods, lies the final and most enduring capital of the Khmer Empire, the 'Great City' of Angkor Thom, King Jayavarman VII’s once golden masterpiece representing a microcosm of the universe.
Ta Som
A quieter alternative to Ta Prohm, the often-overlooked, smaller temple of Ta Som rewards those who escape the crowds to seek it out, a strangulating sacred fig on its eastern entrance spectacularly guarding the beautiful bas-reliefs, artistic treasures and inner secrets within.
Banteay Srei
The ‘art gallery of Angkor’, Banteay Srei is the jewel in the crown of Khmer craftsmanship, a breathtaking dedication to the Hindu god Shiva, its majestic mythological motifs so delicately hewn from red sandstone as to be considered one of the finest stone carvings on earth.
Ta Prohm
Testament to the omnipotent power of nature, the foreboding jungle reclaims the so-called ‘Tomb Raider Temple’ of Ta Prohm, its blocks of Buddhist bas-reliefs creeping with lichen and moss, swallowed by the asphyxiating advance of strangulating tree root systems.
Ta Keo
The thousand year old temple-mountain of Ta Keo soars almost 50 meters high, a quincunx of sandstone sanctuary towers atop a five-tier pyramid, an unfinished masterpiece left strangely devoid of decoration, construction curtailed by an ominous lightning strike.

Why Visit Angkor Wat?

Cambodia’s star attraction is Angkor Archaeological Park, the incredible remnants of an ancient Khmer Empire embedded in Siem Reap, a lively tourist hub and gateway for Angor Wat tours. Amongst hundreds of temples and monuments, the crown jewel, Angkor Wat ranks as one of the world’s greatest ancient wonders and largest religious monument – iconic for its majestic five-tower structure.

Other highlights cover Angkor Thom, an inner-walled city and its centerpiece Bayon Temple, revealing 216, giant enigmatic faces carved into stone towers, Ta Prohm, famed for its ‘Tomb Raider’ notoriety and overgrown tree roots bursting through masonry and Ta Keo, a massive temple-mountain that mysteriously remains half-built. Angkor Wat tour packages also include lesser-visited yet impressive temples, such as remote Banteay Srei and its exquisite bas-reliefs.
