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.

Frequently Asked Questions

➤ The temple of Angkor at dawn is a spectacle to behold, but is it really worth waking up so early?

See what our guests have to say: “Upon arriving in Angor, it became evident that the effort had been more than justified! The tour is really well arranged, although there are other passengers present. The three temple sites we went to were incredible, and as a result, we have a lot of wonderful photographs. Note that this tour does not include access to Angkor Wat and will cost you 37 dollars per person if you choose to visit the temple on your own”.

➤ If I just had a short amount of time in Siem Reap, would you recommend that I go on this tour?

Our tour guides will provide you with the highest level of attention, assistance, and any information you require. After many years of experience, the trip itself is carried out expertly.

If you are only going to be in Siem Reap for a short time, most of our previous visitors think you should go on this tour.

Depending on the time of year, we may even operate the tour with a smaller number of participants; for example, some groups may consist of only six or eight people.

➤ Is there a specific dress requirement to enter Angkor Wat?

Angkor Wat has a strict dress code that forbids visitors to wear clothes that are too revealing. This includes items that expose the shoulders, knees, or cleavage. When going to Angkor Wat, tourists are asked to dress modestly and cover their shoulders and knees with long skirts or pants that reach below their knees.

What about leggings? Can you wear leggings to Angkor Wat?

Again, at the places of worship, you SHOULD NOT wear very revealing clothes because doing so is considered disrespectful. The stairs are steep and narrow and have high risers, most of which are worn and uneven. A sarong is acceptable, but it is not a good idea because of the stairs. If your leggings are long enough to cover your knees, you can wear them. On the other hand, you might find that they get heated later.

➤ Do I need a guide for Angkor Wat?

The temple, which many people in Cambodia regard as the country’s spiritual and cultural hub, is beautiful from a distance. Still, it is even more impressive when you start walking toward it. Because the entire complex is so enormous, first-time visitors to Angkor may feel both entranced and overwhelmed by the overwhelming number of people who visit the site each year. This is because the entire complex is so large (about two million, with the majority coming between November and February).

Do you start to see why you need a guide to visit Angkor Wat?

No matter how many times you’ve scrolled through your Instagram feed, glanced at the Cambodian flag, or walked by the stands selling fridge magnets, blogs,  guidebooks, market t-shirts with the beloved 5-towered building emblazoned on the front, nothing can prepare you for the first time you see the Angkor Wat temples in person.

All travelers who made the dumb mistake of not pre-booking a tour of the temples highly advocate going to Angkor Wat with a guide.

➤ What is the best time to visit Angkor Wat?

The dry season, which forms in late November and lasts until about the middle of April, is ostensibly the ideal time to visit Angkor Wat. This is the time of year when temperatures drop, making for milder days.

However, keep in mind that this is the busiest time of year for tourists, so expect crowds and increased rates.

Siem Reap’s high temperatures in April and May are compounded by the sticky humidity brought on by the rainy weather in May.

Rain is common from June to November in Angkor Wat, but this is a good time to visit because the temples will be less crowded, and the tropical scenery will be at its lush green best. Packing an umbrella is a good idea, but the rain is usually short and interspersed with sunny periods, so you may still get some great shots of Angkor Wat and the surrounding area.

➤ REMINDER! Put on some comfortable shoes and sun protection.

Put on some comfortable shoes and sun protection.

Especially at Angkor Wat, which is the largest religious structure in the world, there will be a significant amount of walking required.

Many other temples will require a substantial amount of walking!

Bring along sun protection items like a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses. These are essential to have.

You should also consider bringing insect repellent, particularly if you will be there during the early morning or late evening hours when the mosquitoes are most active.

➤ Can I find toilets and Angkor Wat?

Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm both have proper toilets, and Bayon (and some others) have some renovated toilets as well. On the main roads, toilets are located in the proximity of the parking lots. Ask your tour guide for a comfortable stop!

If you have a valid entrance ticket, using the restrooms will not cost you anything. However, some toilet cleaners may ask for a little tip.

1 review for Angkor Wat Sunrise shared tour – Semi Private Sunrise Guided Tour [Explore Angkor Wat before the crowds]

  1. Rodriguez Martinez

    I had an amazing experience on this tour! I was able to get a sunrise tour of Angkor Wat before the crowds. My guide and I were the only two people on the tour but it was still fun and interactive. It was a great way to explore this famous temple and be in the perfect spot to witness the Angkor Wat sunrise. The tour was informative and a great way to spend a morning in Siem Reap.
