ANGKOR WAT PHOTO TOUR PROGRAM
Rise early to beat the crowds at the photogenic of Ta Prohm “Tomb Raider” fame. Ta Prohm has been abandoned to the elements, a reminder that while empires rise and fall, the riotous power of nature marches on, oblivious to the dramas of human history. Left as it was ‘discovered’ by French explorer Henri Mouhout in 1860, the tentacle-like tree roots here are slowly strangling the surviving stones, man first conquering nature to create, nature later conquering man to destroy. We visit Ta Prohm early to avoid the masses of crowds and provide a unique visit in this incredible temple. Prasat Kravan – with its unique brick sculptures. Srah Srang – The Royal Baths” was once used for ritual bathing. Banteay Kdei – surrounded by four concentric walls.
In the afternoon, we travel to the mighty temple of Preah Khan or ‘Sacred Sword’, built by King Jayavarman VII in the late 12th century. Sister temple to Ta Prohm, the cruciform corridors here are impressive and there are some wonderful carvings adorning the walls, including the spectacular hall of dancers. We then continue on to the elegant curves of Neak Poan. This petite temple is the ultimate ornamental fountain, its series of elaborate spouts including the heads of lions and elephants. We finish by experiencing sunset over the rice fields from the royal crematorium of Pre Rup, a classic view of the Cambodian countryside.
This new photo tour has it all in one day. Early morning start to catch the light behind the towers of Angkor Wat before moving on to Preah Khan, Ta Prohm, Banteay Kdei and other photogenic spots. After lunch we will be visiting The Bayon and Angkor Wat inside and we will drive into the countryside for a boat trip to a floating village. The photo tour is especially made for those who only stay in Siem Reap for a short period of time and want to get the best out of their cameras while visiting the temples of Angkor and real life in the countryside
