Overview of Angkor Wat Tour
Meeting and Visiting Angkor Wat
We pick up from your hotel before sunrise at between 4:20 am – 5:00 am. Visit one of the world’s cultural heritage, 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. As your expert guide tells you stories about the bas-reliefs, they’ll also provide insight into life during the height of the Khmer Empire. After visiting Angkor Wat, we will have breakfast nearby the temple, please ask your hotel to pack a breakfast box for you.
