What You’ll Do
On this full-day temple-hopping trip of Siem Reap’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Angkor complex, watch the sun rise over the grand 11th-century temple of Angkor Wat. After an early morning pickup, your local guide will drive you to Angkor Wat for sunrise before continuing on to Angkor Thom, Bayon, the Terrace of the Elephants, and Ta Prohm, where ancient tree roots intertwine around exquisitely sculpted bas-reliefs (Angkor entry fee not included).
We begin with a pre-dawn departure from your hotel (4.30 to 4.45 am, depending on the time of year) for sunrise outside Angkor Wat. Enter the enormous temple in the dead of night from the lesser-visited eastern side, and wander along hoary cloistered passages past the world’s longest length of bas-relief carvings.
Angkor Thom’s south gate is the best maintained. It is accessible from the outside via a fifty-meter-long causeway that spans a moat. On each side of the causeway, railings are adorned with 54 stone figures enacting a well-known Hindu epic: the myth of the Churning of the Ocean. 54 ‘devas’ (guardian gods) pull the head of the snake ‘Shesha’ on the left side of the moat, while 54 ‘asuras’ (devil gods) pull the snake’s tail in the opposite way on the right side. In this narrative, the snake’s body is wrapped around the central mountain—Mt. Meru—which may correspond to the Bayon temple at the center of the site. In any case, according to the narrative, the ocean began to churn and precipitate the elements as the Devas pulled the snake in one direction, and the gods pushed in the other, alternating back and forth, re-creating the earth and the cosmos.
Angkor Thom is a magnificent location that was once the gleaming capital city of the Khmer Empire. Before entering the city, take time to reflect on its grandeur. When you get to Bayon Temple, take in its superbly built central towers, which are covered in more than 200 huge faces.
The 350-meter-long Terrace of Elephants was used for public occasions and as the king’s audience hall. It has five outworks, three in the center and one on each end. The retaining wall’s central portion displays life-size garuda and lions, while either end features the legendary elephant parade, complete with Khmer mahouts.
One of the Angkor temples with the most evocative atmosphere. The crumbling ruins of Ta Prohm, which were originally home to 2,740 monks, had retained a significant amount of their original appearance ever since the early 1850s when the French explorer Henri Mouhot “rediscovered” them.
After a long but magnificent day exploring the labyrinthine interior of Ta Prohm, which will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime of one of the world’s wonders, we drive to return to your hotel.
