Angkor Thom Tour- Bayon’s Golden Hour

Tour listed by Butterfly Tours
About this tour

Join us on our half-day temple and sunset tour as we explore Angkor Thom (Bayon) and the “South Gate” at dusk, and learn more about this temple complex’s rich history. Later, take in the stunning views of the sunset and its surrounding villages from the west corner of the Bayon, away from the usual crowd of tourists.

Itinerary

Stop 1: Angkor Wat’s Authentic View Behind

We will take a trail that leads you behind Angkor Wat. This is a route that very few take, guaranteeing a peaceful and unobstructed view of this magnificent complex that holds great historical and religious significance to many Cambodians.

Stop 2: South Gate

On the road from Angkor Wat and Siem Reap, this is the first point of entry to the city for most visitors. All five gates are similar, but the S Gate has been the most extensively restored and is the most complete. Constant use has helped to save the statues of gods and Asuras that line its approach; most of the heads at the other gates have been stolen, and only the N Gate retains a number of complete figures.

Stop 3: Bayon's Golden Hour

Moving over to Angkor Thom (Bayon), you now have the opportunity to savor the changing colors of the day. As the brightness and heat of the day die down, watch the changing hues of the evening sky over Angkor Thom’s magnificent 54 face-towers.

Stop 4: Hidden Sunset

On your last stop, your guides will lead you to the top of Angkor Thom’s high gate. Relax and unwind as you take in the sights of the temple complex and its surrounding villages—a picture-perfect scene to end your tour.
