Your private guide and professional driver will meet you at your Siem Reap hotel before whisking you off to the South Gate of Angkor Thom, where you’ll hop aboard a private boat on this Siem Reap night cruise. Float along the small baray, a type of reservoir that was created in ancient times.
You’ll relax in your private gondola, built in the style of a traditional kongkear boat. Propelled by a quiet wooden paddle wielded by your local oarsman, you’ll take in the peaceful wonder of this epic evening scene. Revel in the beauty of the stunning sunset as it dips below the horizon of Angkor Archeological Park.
Disembark the boat near the southwest corner of this famed walled city and visit Prasat Chrung with your guide. You’ll hike to the ancient temple ruins that date back to the 12th century, and wander for 2-miles (3-km) to the top of the gate where you’ll witness one of the most impressive sunset views in all of Angkor Wat. Your guide will explain the significance of sandstone temples along the way and answer any questions you have about the beauty and history that surrounds you.
Your tour ends with a peaceful gondola cruise back to the start and a return trip to your Siem Reap hotel.
