Board a helicopter and take to the skies above Angkor Wat in this memorable tour. See the magnificent 12th Century monument from the air and witness how vast it really is before touching down and exploring the sights close up on foot.
Begin the walking tour with a visit to the South Gate of Angkor Thom where rows of statues – thought to represent good and evil – line the walkway. Next, head to Bayon to view the magnificent towers adorned with serene smiling faces carved into the rock face, take in the bas-reliefs (shallow stone carvings) that depict battles fought between the Khmers and the ancient Thai. Move on to Phimeanakas, a stunning ancient temple once used for religious rituals but now more likely to be used by local children for play. Climb to the top of the temple to take in spectacular panoramas of the complex.
After a morning of exploration enjoy a secluded lunch for two at the nearby Srah Srang, a former bathing pool and now reservoir boasting a fantastic restaurant. The afternoon is time for exploration of the world-famous Angkor Wat, a massive three-tiered pyramid crowned with five lotus flowers and the jewel in the national crown. Finish a wonderful day by watching the sunset over the jungle from atop this spectacular monument.
