This tour highlights temples located a little further beyond the main Angkor Archaeological Park.
In the morning you will travel to a small temple of Banteay Srei well known for its beautiful delicate carvings in warm pink sandstone. This late 10th century temple is fairly compact and very different from other Angkorian temples.
Once in a complete state of disrepair resembling a giant jigsaw puzzle, our next stop - Beng Mealea, has recently been made more accessible with the addition of a wooden walkway throughout the structure assuring a safe access and slight elevation, thus a better view. This mid 12th century temple features mixture of Buddhism and Hinduism attributes and is particularly mesmerising in the wet season.
In the afternoon you will head through picturesque countryside back towards Siem Reap stopping at
the late 9th century Hindu temples Bakong, Lolei and Preah Ko which are collectively known as the Rolous Temple Group. Explore the early capital of Angkor and let your guide show you the most attractive sites in this location, the most impressive being the pyramid-like Bakong surrounded by moat still containing water today. To finish off your day you may wish to briefly visit Lolei temple with its four brick towers on a double laterite platform.

Since we were planning to visit Cambodia before this pandemic, we were so happy to find an online tour at Angkor Wat on Triplelights. Our tour guide, Chansip is very kind, pleasant, patient, and knowledgeable. He explained various aspects about Angkor Wat and showed us beautiful sceneries there including many detailed carvings. It was just like a real tour. I really recommend exploring Angkor Wat with Chansip.
Hi Tomoko. You're very kind and it was enjoyable for me too, to be able to show you parts of the beautiful place of Angkor Wat temple. It was kind of great luck for me to have showed you all history of Cambodia. Please let me know should you have any question. Hope to you see again in the future. Best regards, Chansip
