Angkor Thom and Preah Khan with an Archaeologist - Full Day
Explore the awe-inspiring Angkor Thom and Preah Khan, accompanied by a renowned archaeologist. This insider tour will allow you to gain an in-depth insight into these amazing temples, uncovering hidden secrets and quiet corners.
The ancient city of Angkor Thom was built by King Jayavarman VII towards the end of the 12th century. At the centre of the walled city lies the famous Bayon Temple. Of the original 54 stone towers, 37 remain, featuring carvings of large serene faces. Examine the many statues and carvings with your archaeologist guide, learning about the life and culture of the Khmer Empire.
Head to a local village where you can stroll between the houses and past lush rice paddies before stopping for lunch at a traditional Khmer house, where the host will cook you a simple meal and discuss daily life in rural Cambodia.
Finish your tour with a visit to Preah Khan, which was also built by King Jayavarman VII. The temple is similar to the busier Ta Phrom, both in terms of architecture and because it has partially been reclaimed by the forest. Enormous tree roots encroach over the walls, creating a wonderfully atmospheric setting. The archaeologist will lead you through the sprawling labyrinth of the temple, pointing out the building's most fascinating features.
