Our most recommended Cambodia Walking Tours
1. Siem Reap: Angkor Wat Temples Guided Tour by Jeep
The tour begins with pickup in the morning and heads to the first stop of the day, Ta Prohm. Overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground, Ta Prohm has largely been left as it was found making it one of the most picturesque and memorable temples in the complex. Next, drive to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, entering through the ancient stone carved gate which features elephants and giant faces. From here continue onto Bayon Temple, which is located in the center of the city and known as the ‘Giant Face Temple’. Throughout the trip, listen to fascinating information and stories about the temples, their rich history, as well as their importance and symbolism to the local people. Enjoy a short break to eat some refreshing Cambodian snacks and fruits, then travel deeper into the Angkor Kingdom as you explore more and more of this incredible t...

2. Angkor Wat: Tuk Tuk and Walking Tour
Approach the western gate of Angkor Wat by tuk tuk, and take a short walk to Angkor Thom. Hop on the tuk tuk again for a drive to the Bayon temple and then to the eastern gates, as your full-day tour continues. Climb to the top of the city wall and walk along the length of the wall. Along the way, stop at the second of the eastern gates, and at Prasat Chrung. End your wall walk at the northern gate, then head to a local restaurant for lunch (at your own expense). Board the tuk tuk and head to jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm – one of the most atmospheric of all temples in Angkor. Continue to Angkor Wat, the world’s largest sacred building.
Bob was a really great guide! Super recommended. We did not go to the village near angkor wat because it was very dirty, very narrow and people near there where doing weird stuff. Would like for the guides to take more pictures with the Angkor Wat main temple.

But leave room for the main meal, which is a western-Asian fusion BBQ consisting of shrimp, fish, chicken, and pork, all freshly cooked and prepared on board.

Really good tour. The company was on time for pick-up and we could get a good spot to see Angkor Wat during sunset. For the remaining time, we saw all main temples on the Angkor complex and took many good pictures. Our guide was particularly good for that! As feedback, the tour did not last as originally stated. For day 1 we were supposed to finish at 13 hrs; instead we were heading back by 11:40 am; we did not get enough time to appreciate the Bayon temple as we were rushing to the van to head back to the hotel. On day 2 we were heading at 3:30 but we could've stayed more in my opinion. As an advice to fellow travelers, I would spare an additional day to go back to the temples you liked the most (or to other additional temples, as there are many) either on your own or with a private guide.
Another city in Cambodia that is popular to visit because of its ancient ruins is Siem Reap. This city is the famous site of Angkor Wat, which is the world's largest Hindu temple. The design of Angkor Wat is suppose to represent Mount Meru, which is the home of the devas in Hindu mythology and is said to be the epitome of the Khmer architecture classical style. Angkor Wat was built in honor of the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple.
The lost city of Koh Ker is another popular site of Hindu temples to visit. Located outside of the Siem Reap, these temples provide a 30 meter climb above the plain surrounded by an exotic forest.
From ancient Hindu temples to the fascinating Khmer culture, Cambodia's variety of tourist attractions will guarantee any visitor an adventure.
