What to Expect
Itinerary and Guide for Visiting Angkor Wat Over the Course of Two Days
The Angkor Wat Archeological Park, which is also known as the Angkor Wat Complex, is a great place to visit for a vacation if you’re interested in history, adventure, and beauty. Every year, more than a million curious people visit this interesting place to learn about a civilization that lived there more than a thousand years ago.
Angkor Wat is an essential stop on any trip through Cambodia and can be found just eight kilometers (five miles) to the north of Siem Reap. And with this Private 2-day Explore Angkor Adventure Itinerary, you’ll be able to navigate this archaeological site like a pro – leaving with a newfound understanding of the history of this ancient civilisation, an appreciation for the architectural splendor, and a sense of accomplishment for experiencing all the highlights that this incredible place has to offer.
Things You Should Be Aware Of Before Going to Angkor Wat
A ticket is required in order to enter the Angkor Temple Complex – How much are tickets to Angkor Wat in 2022?
- A single-day pass costs USD 37. (valid for 2 entries during 2 consecutive days now)
- 62 USD for a pass good for three days (valid for 5 entries during a period of 10 days now)
- The seven-day pass costs USD 72. (valid for 10 entries during a period of 30 days now)
PS: There is no group discount available. Free admission is granted to youngsters who have not yet reached their 12th birthday; however, parents must remember to provide their children’s passports at the ticket desk and ensure that their children carry their passports with them while within the temples.
*Quick Tip: As you can see, purchasing a 3-Day Pass rather than two 1-Day Passes will save you money in the long run, as you will be able to access even more activities and temples if you are staying in Siem Reap and planning a third tour to visit more about Angkor Archeological Park. The variables are infinite as there are so many temples and locations to visit. It’s your choice!
When the Angkor Complex Is Open to the Public
The majority of the temples in Angkor are open every day from 7:30 AM until 5:30 PM. However, in order to accommodate visitors at both sunrise and dusk, the following three temples are open for longer hours:
The iconic spot to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat is open daily from 5:00 AM until 5:30 PM.
Phnom Bakheng is a temple that is located on a hill and is open from 5:00 in the morning until 5:30 in the afternoon. It is a favorite place to watch the sunset.
Because it is the only temple in Angkor that can be visited at either sunrise or sunset, Pre Rup is an excellent place to go if you want to get away from the throngs that are at Angkor Wat and Phnom Bakeng. Open from 5 AM-7 PM.
What You’ll Do
To provide you with some context, the word “capital” in the Khmer language of Cambodia is the equivalent of the English word “Angkor.” As you may already know or have reason to suspect, this location was originally the seat of government for the Khmer Empire. The Angkor Temple Complex spans across more than 400 acres and is home to many temples that were constructed more than 1,200 years ago.
Because there are so many temples to explore and so many acres of land to traverse, Angkor Wat has been divided into two halves for our convenience. On day one, we will visit the larger loop that includes fewer well-known temples, and on day two, we will visit the smaller loop that includes more well-known sites. For the time being, let’s concentrate on having a good time on Day 1.
The first day of two spent exploring Angkor Wat:
Explore Angkor tour Day 1 – Angkor Wat Grand Loop
Pre Rup Temple ▷ Banteay Srei Temple ▷ East Mebon Temple ▷ Ta Som Temple ▷ Neak Pean ▷ Preah Khan Temple
With the Big Loop Scenic Route, you will be visiting the more distant temples located around the complex’s grounds. The Small Loop takes up less ground but leads you to the most well-known sights; nevertheless, there is no need to worry about that because you will always be in the comfort of a modern air-conditioned minivan moving from one location to the other.
Pre-Rup Temple is the first destination.
The Temple is open from 5:00 AM till 7:00 PM daily.
The tranquil setting atop a modest mountain is where you’ll find the ancient temple of Pre Rup, which dates back to the 10th century. Climbing the extremely steep stairs that are given in order to obtain access will reward you with the nicest vistas. There are four temples located in each of the four corners, arranged in a pagoda-like pattern. This provides you with an uninterrupted view of the ruins and the majestic nature of this location as a whole. Because of its pristine position, this was by far one of our most favorite temples; in addition, it is an excellent spot from which to view either the sunrise or the sunset.
Pre Rup is a temple in Cambodia that is often compared to Angkor Wat due to its three central towers. The phrase “Turning the Body” is the meaning of the name Pre Rup, which alludes to a traditional form of cremation in which the outline of the deceased is traced in the cinders. This points to the possibility that the temple was also used as a royal crematorium at one point.
Because the grey sandstone used in the construction of the temple is not as hardy as the pink sandstone used in the construction of many of the other Angkor temples, the majority of the intricate carvings have been worn away by rain and erosion. In spite of this, the collapsing ruins lend an eerie air to the temple, which only serves to increase its appeal as a tourist destination.
Temple of Banteay Srei, which is the second stop.
Banteay Srei is best visited as part of an Angkor tour that spans multiple days because it is situated around 25 kilometers to the northeast of the main temples that have been described in the preceding paragraph.
The majority of Banteay Srei’s construction is comprised of firm red sandstone, a material that can be carved just like wood and lends itself to the creation of intricate ornate wall carvings that have withstood the test of both time and the environment. In particular, the temple is well-known for the exquisite carvings that can be found on its pediments and lintels (a horizontal beam that runs between two posts) (triangular space above a rectangular doorway or opening).
One of the Extreme Advantages of Going on This Tour? It is highly recommended that you go to Banteay Srei, and if you decide to take a tour in a private vehicle, the journey to and from the temple only takes about half an hour, despite the distance of 25 kilometers in each direction (with the strong advantage of air conditioning).
Stop No. 3: The Temple of East Mebon.
Opening hours: 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
The East Mebon temple was previously located on an island in the East Baray, which was once the largest and most significant reservoir in all of Angkor. Sadly, the East Baray dried up during the medieval period, which caused the temple to relocate. You will be fascinated and amazed by the beautiful lintel carvings from the Pre Rup style that were carved over a thousand years ago and can be found in this particular temple.
Stop number four: Ta Som.
Hours of Operation: 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
You’ll come upon the Ta Som Temple if you travel north of Neak Pean. This particular temple is well-known all throughout the world for its intricate architectural layout. Intricate stonework can be seen all around the Angkor Wat Complex, but this particular piece is among the most remarkable examples. They give the impression that they are consuming the entire temple since the walls have been penetrated by tree roots over the course of time. Indeed, a magnificent location to explore and enjoy.
Stop number five is the Neak Pean Temple.
Hours of Operation: 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
Neak Pean is located to the east of Preah Khan and is a temple that was constructed on an island that was originally a reservoir. This one-of-a-kind construction features an unusual circular platform that is encircled by a number of substantial lakes of water that have been constructed in a symmetrical method. You won’t take more than half an hour to explore this area, but the reflections off the water’s surface are an absolutely breathtaking sight to behold.
Stop #6: Preah Khan Temple.
Hours of Operation: 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
The highlight of the huge loop’s offers, without a doubt, is a visit to the Preah Khan Temple. This specific shrine, located within Angkor Wat and the largest flat temple that can be found there, was originally the location of an entire thriving city that is now in ruins. Preah Khan, constructed in the 12th century, was once the administrative and logistical hub of a massive organization with more than 100,000 employees and officials.
The second day exploring Angkor:
Explore Angkor tour Day 2 – Angkor Wat SMALL LOOP
Angkor Wat Temple ▷ Angkor Thom ▷ Bayon Temple ▷ Phimeanakas walk ▷ Victory Gate ▷ Gate of the Dead ▷ Thommanon Temple ▷ Chau Say Tevoda Temple ▷ Ta Keo ▷ Ta Prohm Temple ▷ Prasat Kravan Temple
When it comes to the temples in the Angkor complex, it should come as no surprise that Angkor Wat is the temple that is considered to be the crown jewel. And because we know that visiting Angkor Wat has been a dream of many of you for a very long time, we are here to assist you in turning that desire into a reality.
Thommanon and Chay Say Tevoda
Opening Hours: 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM
Both Thommanon and Chau Say Tevoda are wonderful representations of the classical Angkor Wat architecture, which was popular throughout the first half of the 12th century. The Thommanon Temple, also known as the Twin Temples in Nature, is embellished with well-preserved detailed carvings and beautiful lintels that display iconography of Vishnu and Shiva, the two gods to whom the temple is dedicated.
In addition, the temple is known for its twin temples in the natural environment. The etched gods or spirits, if you prefer, that the ancient Khmers used to worship were, without a doubt, among the most fascinating images that we came across during our exploration of the ruins.
Opening Hours: 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM
Sandstone was used for the first time in the construction of Ta Keo, making it one of the earliest examples of temple architecture. The building’s structural soundness is particularly distinctive.
In the second part of the 10th century, construction began on the pyramid that is now known as Ta Keo Temple. This structure has five storeys and is an astounding 50 meters high.
The first two levels of the building are made to look like a base, with walled gardens and courtyards. However, the structure’s top three levels feature a collection of smaller sanctuaries. During the Angkorian period, the ancient Khmer civilizations employed stone blocks to construct enormous temples.
Ta Prohm Temple
The Ta Prohm Temple is open to the public from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
Ta Prohm has more photographs taken of it than any other temple at Angkor. Ta Prohm, which was first built in 1186, was a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university until the decline of the Khmer Empire in the 15th century.
The Cambodian jungle quickly engulfed Ta Prohm after that, leaving it in ruins for generations. Giant tree roots have made their way through broken stone walls and narrow passageways, destroying everything in their wake. After making its film premiere in 2001’s Tomb Raider, which starred Angelina Jolie, Ta Prohm gained notoriety. Everyone loves visiting this intriguing and otherworldly sanctuary.

PSS: How long does it take to explore Angkor Wat?
Some of the smaller temples can be visited in less than an hour, but larger temples, like Angkor Wat, may require two hours to explore.
How do I explore Angkor Wat?
Sightseeing with a tour van is the most pleasant way to see Angkor, but it is also the most expensive choice. Sitting comfortably inside an air-conditioned van, you’ll travel from Siem Reap to Angkor and then from one temple to the next. As you go around, a tour guide will explain the history of each location you visit. The price depends on what is included and whether you choose a private or shared trip.
We know this might be difficult for some of you to internalize, especially if you are coming from Scandinavia or England, but we must strongly warn you to be very careful when crossing the streets in Siem Reap. Walking the downtown streets and riverfront is excellent, but please be aware of oncoming traffic when crossing the street.
