You will be picked up from your hotel before sunrise at between 4:20 am – 5:00 am. Visit one of the world’s cultural heritage, Angkor Wat, the largest temple in the world as you soak in the breathtaking sunrise. The magnificent architecture and charming light and shadow are even more memorable with the light morning mist that is most often present in this region of Cambodia.

We will also explore Baphoun temple and the Terrace of Elephants before having lunch (at your own expense).
