Head out this morning to see the majestic temples of Angkor. Going out early means you can visit as the day breaks over the towering temple, an amazing sight. With a private guide you’ll be able to visit the temples at your own pace, go to the parts that interest you, and make a head start on the coach groups. Return to your hotel before midday to escape the heat and have time to refresh. Head back out in the late afternoon to explore Ta Phrom and the outlying temples which have been reclaimed by the jungle – the Tomb Raider temples! The setting sun casts a beautiful orange light on the temples.
Your day is free and there are some excellent local excursions.
