What to Expect

This tour will start with a visit to the ticket office in order for guests to purchase an Angkor Pass.  Our first stop will be Pre Rup, a step pyramid temple with its extensive laterite and brick giving it a pleasing reddish tone that is heightened by early morning and late afternoon sunlight. We’ll continue with the elegant temple of Banteay Srei or the “Citadel of Women”, comprising three central towers decorated with male and female divinities. The special charm of this temple lies in its remarkable state of preservation, small size and excellent decoration.  After lunch, we’ll head to East Mebon where the inner courtyard boast of vastly different designs of finely carved decorations on the structure. Like the nearby Preah Khan, Ta Som temple is left largely unrestored with numerous trees and other vegetation growing among the ruins.  En-route to the last stop of this tour Preah Khan, or Scared Sword Temple, we’ll drop by Neak Pean, a temple built on a circular artificial island which was originally designed to be a hospital.
